If you’re looking for a place with a story then a holiday in Normandy should be top of your list. The D-Day landing beaches are mesmerising and moving, as are the numerous cemeteries and museums that commemorate WWII. But the history doesn’t stop here - Normandy is also home to the famous (and huge!) Bayeux Tapestry as well as to the magnificent monastery at Mont St-Michel. This is a very emotive corner of Europe.
But a holiday in Normandy isn’t just a history lesson, it’s also a chance to enjoy charming seaside resorts like Honfleur and Deauville, picturesque towns like Rouen (home to an impressive cathedral) and stunning sights like Monet’s Garden at Giverny. Throw in some delicious cuisine (the region is known for its camembert, cider and seafood) and some hiking in the scenic Suisse Normande and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect vacation.
