Introduction

With its luscious green countryside, the morning mist above the apple trees, horses and cows grazing peacefully, and the nearby seashore with its long sandy beaches and renowned cliffs, Normandy is truly a unique and magical part of France. Most famous for the painful memory of D-Day, many visitors flock to the cemeteries of Omaha and Utah Beach to pay their respect to the soldiers who fought for freedom. From the numerous small villages filled with iconic half-timbered houses and grey stone churches, to the unforgettable Mont Saint Michel, and the atmosphere of seaside resorts of Cabourg, Deauville, Trouville, and Honfleur known worldwide thanks to famous writers and the impressionist painters, Normandy is a truly special place.Horse lovers will adore this region for its prestigious stud farms and racetracks. Spend a few extra days in this green, calm part of France, and you will succumb to the region’s discreet charm, making you want to return again and again.
