Normandy villas, gites and cottages, we have a range of self-catering holiday rental accommodation hand picked by specialists.
It is no coincidence that Normandy has been home to many great artists, writers (Corneille, Flaubert, Maupassant ...), painters (Boudin, Monet, Dufy, Leger ...) or musicians (Brossard, Saint-Saens, Honneger ...)! They were inspired by this charming region, the varied landscape. Its coastline is stunning cliffs and sandy beaches, its countryside of green plains and groves, forests and valleys.
Forged by the Vikings, shaped by Christian art, romance and Gothic, Renaissance renewed its architectural heritage. Abbeys, cathedrals and smaller churches, bright windows, Normandy is a land of sacred art. Sporting activities are numerous: water sports (catamaran, sailing, windsurfing, surfing ...), fishing at sea or river, hiking or riding.
For enthusiasts, Normandy is the chosen land of the pure-blood and proud, host to many stud farms, including two national (the stud farm of Pine and Saint-Lô). International equestrian competitions and horse racing punctuate the summer.
Finally, Normandy is also about eating and drinking well: cheese, butter, milk, cream, fish and shellfish, poultry, vegetables, cider, calvados ...
It is also very well situated for visiting the likes of the Living horse museum in Chantilly, just north of Paris, it opened in 2013 and is set in the stables of the impressive chateau alongside the well-known race track.
Any family with children will almost certainly want to spend a day at EuroDisney which is the biggest attraction in France.
It is also perfectly feasible to enjoy a day in Paris, which is probably best done by taking the train unless you decide to go along on a Sunday when the capital is remarkably free of traffic.
There are a thousand reasons to spend your holidays in this land of plenty, as you will see when you stay in one of our Normandy villas.
