Beach, Nature and Cities

Beaches and Nature in Normandy

The plentiful sandy beaches, chalky-white seaside cliffs, lakes, meadows, and wooded areas of both Upper and Lower Normandy provide family-oriented mobile home camping settings. Today, Upper Normandy tends more towards industry whereas much of Lower Normandy is agricultural land with rolling countryside replete with dairy farms and apple orchards, both of which feature largely in Normandy cuisine. Natural environments with their native flora and fauna are protected in 4 regional natural parks that are open to visitors.

Cities in Normandy

If your time is limited in Normandy, the must see cities are Mont. St. Michel, Bayeux, and Rouen. On the seaside, the rocky island of Mont St-Michel, with its abbey and tiny village of under 50 residents, is accessible by foot or shuttle. Rouen has an exquisitely restored medieval quarter, a majestic Gothic cathedral, and excellent museums. The young Joan of Arc was tried in Rouen and met her end in the central square in 1431. Bayeaux hosts the Bayeux Museum with its miraculously intact tapestry.

Attractions in Normandy

Normandy’s early history is captured in the Bayeux Tapestry. The tapestry depicts scenes leading up to the Norman conquest of England and culminating in the 1066 Battle of Hastings. Normandy is the site of history’s largest seaborne invasion. Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944 in an operation proved to be the turning point in WW 11.

The landing beaches, American War Cemetery and Memorial at Colleville-sur-Mer, and the British War Cemetery at Bayuex, are all popular sites.
