AttractionsNormandy

Normandy is both typical of France and yet unique at the same time. It's rustic countryside and wonderful views mark it as typically French. Yet Normandy's combination of modern and ancient history make it unique, in France if not the world. Where else than in Normandy can you visit the location of such a modern world changing event as D-day and yet the next day visit ancient history like the launching point for the invasion of England by William the Conqueror? Only in Normandy!

Normandy has a number of distinct regions, the coast featuring world famous D-day beaches, the inland area consisting of an 'open country' made up mostly of plains and farmland and the woodlands where some of France's best horses are breed and milk is produced.
