Stretching across the northern coast of France, Normandy has long been a strategic location and its landscape is strewn with historic sites. Our specialists know the region well and can help you decide where to go, depending on your interests. Whether you wish to explore the island monastery of Mont Saint-Michel, see the story of William of Normandy’s conquest of England embroidered on the Bayeux Tapestry or visit medieval, half-timbered Rouen, our specialists can help you make the most of your time here.
We’ve explored Normandy's main highlights as well as its lesser-known ones and will carefully plan your vacation as an individual trip, tailored to your preferences. Along the way, we can help you discover key sights such as the beaches where the D-Day landings took place and the military cemeteries that remain as testament to this pivotal but brutal time in the region's history. We’ll also introduce you to charming little towns such as Honfleur and the region's rich tradition of cheese and cider making.
