The Normandy region
The D-day landing beaches, a 40-minute drive from Caen
In 1944, on June 6th and during the long summer that followed, men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and restore Freedom. Normandy keeps the traces of this history forever.
Iconic towns such as Deauville
The internationally renowned seaside resort knows how to charm its visitors with class. 653 meters of planking let you walk along the beach and its multicoloured parasols. The image of Deauville is of course also that of the horse world, with races and stud farms that attract both enthusiasts and the uninitiated.
The Mount and its bay have been UNESCO World Heritage listed since 1979. This grandiose site located between Normandy and Brittany, 90 minutes from Caen, is one of the most visited in France.
The Bayeux tapestry
A masterpiece of Romanesque art, the Bayeux Tapestry is included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register. It is an embroidered wall hanging dating from the 11th century, in a single 70 m long and 50 cm high piece. This is a unique document illustrating the conquest of England in 1066 by William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy.
