Welcome to the Normandy
From ultra-modern Le Tréport to the Mont-Saint-Michel, the Normandy coast exhibits an astonishing variety of landscapes. Here, the sea sculpts the cliffs with the pounding of its waves, creating a fantasy architecture; there, where its waters stretch on towards infinity, the sea comes to rest on vast expanses of golden sand that disappear and reappear with the tide, and the very air is fruit of new promise. This same sea is responsible for tempering the harsh rigours of winter, and for moderating the hot excesses of summer. The gentle skies look down and favour the 600 kilometres of coastline of this earthly paradise. While many people will head for the lively Normandy coast, the Norman countryside, with its golden prairies, its cool, wooded valleys and its beech and pine forests, remains a haven of peace and tranquillity. Its little villages, leafy fanes and clear streams are the ideal setting in which to relax and rediscover the joys of nature.
