Region - The place - french version

Lower Normandy  
   
 

Basse Normandie/ Lower Normandy (counties of Manche, Calvados and Orne) counts 1,391,000 inhabitants over 17,589 km².
The county of Calvados, is the fruit of a happy marriage between blue ocean and the green countryside.
Seaside resorts: Deauville, Cabourg, towns of art and history: Caen, Bayeux, and leasure and fishing ports: Honfleur, Courseulles, which reduces the weight of the history of the beaches of the Normandy landings: Arromanches, Omaha beach....
If Lower Normandy and its five hundred kilometres of coast attract the Parisians since a certain Duchess of Berry launched the fashion of the sea bathings in the years 1820, it is also a beautiful countryside made up of hills and green pastures.
Of open fields devoted to farming in narrow and irregular pieces of cattle fields which test the undulations of the landscape, of shaded meadows of apple trees aligned in grove, the Norman valleys offer to the visitor a landscape with changing reflections, to rediscover always.
The Norman cow is an important actress of the regional economy; for its meat but more famously  for its milk which produces cream, butter and the heroes of the cheese plates like Camembert cheese, the Pont-l'Evêque, Livarot, a whole gastronomy on its own.
And how to evoke Lower Normandy without speaking about apple?
The apple trees have been covering the territory since the Roman Gaulle, but it is only in 1553 that we distil the first cider. With two thousand varieties of apples, Normandy is proud of its production of cider, “pommeau” and special brandy of cider: Calvados or Calva (for the locals).
Enjoy your holidays in Lower Normandy!!

Arromanches  
 
 
 

Arromanches is a small village of approximately 500 inhabitants with a unique charm.

Known worlwide to have been the universal port of the Normandy landings of
June 1944, Arromanches is, more than  a "remembrance port", also a holiday place, a space of relaxation, of expatriation, discoveries and rest.

The holiday makers appreciate the family joys of the sea bathings and many leisures, nautical, sporting and cultural are proposed to the visitors.
Arromanches is also, of course, a high place of history and memories.
The enormous concrete blocks of the artificial harbour fixed in sand are enough to recall that Arromanches was an actor of the history of the twentieth century. Arromanches unique museum will take you through all the memorable events of the “D day” and you will learn everything about the artificial harbour construction and use.

Excursions are proposed in the surrounding countryside and along the coast.
We invite you to visit the website of the town of Arromanches for more details
