Bordered to the north and the west by the English Channel (La Manche), stunning Brittany to the southwest and the Paris basin to the east, Normandy has an idyllic location. Ask any discerning Parisian about their favorite corner of France and the answer will likely be unanimous – Normandy. It’s a land of world-class gastronomy – who hasn’t heard of the delectable cheese Camembert? – and bucolic scenery, where gentle fields divided by hedgerows end at chalk-white cliffs and dune-lined beaches. Quaint timber cottages, stately chateaux, noble cathedrals, the spectacular abbey of Mont St-Michel, the intoxicating charms of calvados – Normandy is utterly alluring.
Of course, historians will quickly tell you that Normandy has known some good, and not so good times. The Vikings, who hailed from Scandinavia, invaded present-day Normandy in the 9th century, establishing settlements along the coast and adopting Christianity. In 911 French king Charles the Simple and Viking chief Rollo agreed that the area around the city of Rouen should be handed over to these Norsemen – or Normans, as they came to be known. The region shot to prominence in 1066, when William the Conqueror set sail from its shores to start his conquest of England. Normandy also saw much conflict throughout the Hundred Years’ War (1337-1453), when the duchy seesawed between French and English rule. Then in the 16th century, Normandy, a Protestant stronghold, was the scene of much fighting between the Catholics and Huguenots.
However, Normandy only really shot to global fame after its role in the D-Day landings of 1944 became widely known. Today the region is an enticing blend of the maritime, the pastoral and the urban – both old and new. The famous D-Day beaches are unmissable, as is Rouen’s famous Gothic cathedral and of course the glorious abbey of Mont St-Michel.
Yet this is just the beginning. It is hard to imagine a European region that packs in more attractions, both cultural and sensual, than Normandy. After admiring the marvelous Bayeaux Tapestry, explore the chic boutiques that occupy half-timbered houses in Rouen, gaze at the sheer cliffs that meet the sea along the Cote d’Albatre and enjoy fine gastronomy in the harbor of Honfleur. However long you spend in Normandy, it won’t be long enough.
