or many, the mere mention of Normandy evokes the D-Day Landings that were the premise to the end of WW2. Indeed, this is still one of the main reasons our client's book tours to Normandy, but there's so much more to discover.

Turn the pages of history and discover not only the beaches of the D-Day landings, but also Bayeux and its famous Tapestry of Queen Matilda; Caen, the home of the Dukes of Normandy; and of course Mont-Saint-Michel, a treasure of French heritage.

Beyond history, there's the regional cuisine and cultural specialities, from Camembert and cider. Mont-Saint-Michel to Le Tréport, from Cherbourg to Alençon, Normandy offers a wealth of breathtaking landscapes, picturesque villages and vibrant cities to discover.

Normandy has a wide range of customs and places which are world class, many which are UNESCO-listed. This regions also includes six villages that are officially listed among the ‘most beautiful villages in France’. A must-see region!

"So much of the progress that would define the 20th century, on both sides of the Atlantic, came down to the battle for a slice of beach only six miles long and two miles wide."

- President Barak Obama, in Normandy to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day
