Normandy - Self-Catering Holidays to France

Normandy self-catering holidays 2020

Whenever France becomes the topic of conversation there are certain places that jump to mind. Paris, of course, as it is the capital city and a great centre of culture and history.

Another place is Normandy. This is a very special place for many reasons, most notable for being the site of the greatest invasion in world history and some of the most fierce battles leading to the end of the Second World War.

Normandy is a region of northern France. Its varied coastline includes white-chalk cliffs and WWII beachheads, including Omaha Beach, site of the famous D-Day landing. Just off the coast, the rocky island of Mont-Saint-Michel is topped by a soaring Gothic abbey. 

The city of Rouen, dominated by Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, is where the military leader and Catholic saint Joan of Arc was executed in 1431.

Normandy (French: Normandie) The name Normandy comes from the conquest and subsequent settlement of the area by the "Northmen" (Latin: Northmanni) also called Vikings. The band that settled at Rouen and became the Normans was led by Rollo

What is Normandy famous for?

The most famous regional products are the cheese Camembert, and two drinks, Cider and the spirit distilled from it, Calvados. Normandy is also famous for its racehorses, and the region has many top breeding stables. It is also one of the most beautiful and picturesque regions of France. That is some claim to fame.

There is an excellent website that is full of information on France in General and Normandy in particular. Things to see and do and places to go are listed.France.fr

Lower Normandy

Lower Normandy, now part of Normandy, is a former French region bordering the English Channel. It’s known for its rocky coastline of white chalk cliffs, plus WWII D-Day sites such as Omaha Beach. The Côte Fleurie (Flower coast) features the chic resort town of Deauville, with a sandy beach and belle epoque villas. The iconic island of Mont Saint-Michel is topped by a mythical-looking medieval abbey. Rent in France has over 180 great self-catering rental properties in the Lower Normandy area.
