Normandy

Think Normandy and you are bound to think of the incredible Mont-Saint-Michel. This monastery perched on a tiny island is the iconic emblem of the region. UNESCO world heritage sites, spa towns, the delightful and colourful coastal town of Honfleur… this is a region with something for everyone.

And don’t forget the food! Seafood aplenty, lamb, apples, Calvados (of course) and cider make this a gourmet treat. A 2 hour drive takes you from the Channel Tunnel to Normandy, or arrive right in the region in Dieppe.
