Normandy, land of Art and History

Recognized worldwide for its history Normandy is a region where reigns today, the French art of living

Normandy is full of many assets: from Mont Saint Michel to Rouen Cathedral, from the D-Day beaches marked by historical events to the Alabaster Coast and its chalk cliffs, the Normandy region is a resource place for people in search of history or wild beauty.

The Normandy region is bordered by more than 600km of coast, bringing to its inhabitants the iodized air of the English Channel. It can also be discovered through its bocage, the Pays d'Auge or the Pays de Bray and its extensive breeding lands. Normandy has always been a real source of inspiration for many artists, painters, writers and poets. Claude Monet lived there for 43 years in his Giverny house where he took care of his home and garden which were recurring themes in his paintings. Under the pen of Maurice Leblanc, Arsène Lupin, the most famous gentleman burglar, will escape through the landscapes of Etretat.

Land of gastronomy, Normandy by the richness of its fertile cultures offers many culinary resources; apples, cider, seafood or cheese enrich the plates and excite the taste buds.

The city of Rouen, regional capital, invites you to stroll through its pedestrian streets characterized by its half-timbered houses dating from the fourteenth century. Its cathedral which is the 3rd highest in the world is recognizable by its asymmetry and its Romanesque curves and bears of the “hundred bell towers” that punctuate the city skyline. Both the Courthouse and the Gros-Horloge decorated with gilding reveal its architectural and historical richness.
