Normandy Heritage & D-Day Coast
The Normandy coast between the Seine river estuary and the Cherbourg peninsula is home to some of the most scenic, traditional ports and seaside resorts in the north of France. This is an area of fishing harbours, wide sandy beaches, dunes and a relaxed pace of life.
