Discover the European narrative in Normandy

Normandy may be strewn with pebbly beaches and postcard-perfect villages, but it's not just a pretty face. This storied slice of France is awash with history. From strolling around Monet's gardens to visiting D-Day landing sites, Normandy has played an important role in shaping the European narrative. Touring this historic region, you can visit war museums, retrace the footsteps of Joan of Arc and get lost in one of France's most impressive Gothic abbeys. Whatever makes you tick, Normandy vacation rentals promise a local experience in this captivating slice of France.

Beaches and battlefields in Normandy

A tour of Normandy's D-Day beaches and battlefields will take you to iconic sites like Omaha Beach, where Allied forces launched the invasion of German-occupied France. You can also visit sites like Pointe du Hoc and the poignant Normandy American Cemetery. France is famous for its cuisine, and Normandy doesn't disappoint. The region tantalizes with creamy camembert, rich sauces and sumptuous seafood. With well-equipped kitchens and sunny terraces, Normandy vacation rentals cottages make home-cooked meals a tempting option. Wash it down with a glass of the region's hard apple cider.

Visit Normandy's enchanting Mont St-Michel

One of France's most iconic attractions, Mont St-Michel looks like it's been plucked out of a fairytale. The medieval monastery teeters on a rocky islet and is particularly enchanting at high tide, when it's surrounded by shimmering water. Tucked away in the village of Giverny, Maison et Jardins de Claude Monet offer a glimpse at what inspired Impressionist masterpieces such as the Water Lilies series. Today you can tour the pastel-pink house and explore the flower-filled gardens. Dazzling art aficionados and historians alike, the Bayeux Tapestry features over 200 feet of beautifully embroidered scenes depicting life in the 11th century.

Summer celebrations in Normandy

Like most of France, summer is high season in Normandy. Daytime highs creep into the 70s and the region is drenched in sunshine. Beyond gorgeous weather, June offers a unique chance to attend memorial services held on the D-Day beaches and battlefields. In July, you could catch summer events like Bayeux's Fete Medievale, which celebrates the town's medieval heritage. If you want to have Normandy all to yourself, consider visiting in winter, when major attractions like Mont St-Michel and Maison et Jardins de Claude Monet feel wonderfully deserted.

Dramatic seascapes in Normandy

Like its history, Normandy's landscapes are suitably dramatic. Along the coast you'll find pebbly beaches hemmed in by soaring chalky cliffs that back onto the English Channel. Normandy vacation rentals make the most of the seascapes with beautiful properties in coastal towns and villages. From romantic cottages to family-sized villas, sparkling sea views will take your morning croissants and cafe au lait to the next level. Venture inland and you'll find historic stone farmhouses set in the Normandy countryside.
