Normandy, Land of Art and History

Normandy abounds in riches: from Mont Saint Michel to Rouen Cathedral, from the historic D-Day beaches to the chalk cliffs of the Côte d'Albâtre, the Normandy region is a resource for those in search of history or rugged beauty.

The Normandy region is bordered by over 600 km of coastline, offering its inhabitants a close proximity to the air of the English Channel, along the Côte de Nacre. You can also discover the Normandy bocage, the Pays d'Auge and Bray, and the many farmlands. A true source of inspiration for many artists, painters, writers and poets, Claude Monet lived here for 43 years in his house in Giverny, where he took care of his home and garden, the themes of many of his paintings. Arsène Lupin, the most famous of gentleman burglars, escaped under the pen of Maurice Leblanc, through the landscapes of the town of Etretat.

A land of gastronomy, Normandy's rich, fertile cultures offer a wealth of culinary resources: apples, cider, seafood and cheeses enrich the plates and tantalize the taste buds.

The town of Bayeux, home to Bajocasse, boasts a rich medieval heritage. Bayeux is famous for its 11th-century tapestry of Queen Matilda, depicting the Norman invasion of England in 1066. Bayeux was one of the first towns liberated by Operation Overlord, and one of the few Norman towns to have survived the Battle of Normandy, retaining its rich heritage and architecture.
