Make a France vacation rental in Normandy (Normandie) your home away from home in northwestern France.
Normandy is perhaps best known as the site of the 1944 D-Day invasion, and guests of Normandy vacation rentals can visit a number of sites in the Calvados and Manche regions commemorating D-Day. Off the beach of Arromanches-les-Bains are the remains of the enormous prefabricated port that was tugged across the English Channel to facilitate the troop landing. In the Musee du Debarquement are maps, models, photographs, and a diorama depicting the landing.
The remains of 9,300 American soldiers lie in the Normandy American Cemetery, overlooking the section of Omaha Beach where the 1st Infantry Division landed. Other D-Day sites include Point du Hoc, where a monument honors the American Rangers who scaled the cliffs in order to attack the machine gun nests, and Utah Beach, the site in the Manche region where the 4th Infantry Division landed.
Calvados is an agricultural region known for its cheese, cider, and the apple brandy known as Calvados. The chic coastal resorts of Trouville and Deauville lie off the Cote Fleurie, while Cote de Nacre Luc-sur-Mer and Courseulles-sur-Mer are less expensive alternatives for guests of Calvados vacation rentals. The city of Caen was mostly destroyed during World War II, but the Abbaye aux Dames and Abbaye aux Hommes, founded by William the Conqueror and his wife Mathilda, were spared.
The Manche region, surrounded on three sides by the English Channel, is home to one of France's most visited sights, the magnificent island abbey of Mont-St-Michel, which is still inhabited by Benedictine monks. Other highlights of the region for guests of Manche vacation rentals include the historic town of Coutances, and Granville, which features a museum about Christian Dior, the famous fashion designer who was raised here.
In Rouen, guests of Normandy vacation rentals can explore the well-preserved medieval and Renaissance sections of town and visit the Place du Vieux-Marche, the town square where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431. Rouen is home to a number of fabulous churches, including the Cathedrale Notre-Dame, the 14th century St-Ouen, and St-Godard. Top museums for guests of Rouen vacation rentals include the Musee de Antiquties and the Musee des Beaux-Arts.
In the Orne region, visitors staying in Orne vacation rentals can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities at France's largest national park, the Parc Regional du Normandie-Maine. Other attractions include cheese tasting at La Maison du Camembert, spa treatments at the thermal spa of Bagnoles-de-L'Orne, and horse shows at Haras du Pin.
Other popular Normandy accommodations include Seine-Maritime and Eure vacation rentals. You’re sure to find the perfect vacation rental home for a memorable vacation in France. Reserve your Normandy vacation rental today!
