There is of course, Mont St Michel, the UNESCO World Heritage site and the D-Day sites, poignant, yet interesting. There are Abbeys and Chateaux; forests and parks-there is something to interest everyone but we shall share with you some of our favourite places to visit.

The Musée de Christian Dior at Granville changes the exhibition of Haute Couture from the House of Dior every year and it is possible to see clothes designed by Dior himself and also later designs from the House designers such as Yves St-Laurent and John Galliano. The gardens are beautiful and a meander through the different areas is a must, followed by specially blended teas at the tea room
Cycling is a great passion in France with the world famous Tour de France making its way through Normandy in 2016. However, if you can't make it for that Tour, there are regional Tours - the Tour de Normandie and the Tour de La Manche provide you with an opportunity to watch this French spectacle
Excitement is mounting through Normandy!
Throughout the year there are many Fêtes and Festivals, some celebrating vintage vehicles, especially tractors and others celebrating the old ways of life; for example, there is the Fête de la Carotte at Créances or the Fête de la coquille Saint-Jacques at Grandcamp Maisy. There are also Vide Greniers, rather like car boot sales and Brocantes to enjoy.
Flowers and gardens are a big part of French life and during late Summer, the Festival du Dahlias is held at the Lycée Horticole at Coutances where there is the most amazing display of dahlias and also competition gardens designed by the students.
