Normandy in the northern part of France has Belle Époque–style villas, luxury hotels, and grand casinos dotted throughout its vast region. It’s popular for producing quality cheeses, apple brandy, and seafood like sea scallop and herring. A short drive away from Normandy’s seaside towns like Honfleur and Rouen, you’ll find yourself surrounded by lush hills and meadows, as well as half-timbered farmhouses throughout the countryside.

Normandy has a rather turbulent past, having been part of the WWII and D-Day invasions. As a result, there are plenty of historical landmarks and medieval towns to visit during your holiday. Must-visits include Omaha Beach, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, and Mont-Saint-Michel.
