Normandy is a beautiful region of France, easily accessible from the United Kingdom and yet a world away. It is a verdant land of delightful scenery, little colombage cottages nestling in the hills, friendly local people and of course delicious food and wine. The pace of life is slow, long leisurely lunches under a shady tree or in a little restaurant are an integral part of the day. The cheeses of the region are legendary and are named after many of our local towns Livarot, Pont L’Eveque. The village of Camembert is just 2 miles away . The North Coast with its golden sands and elegant seafront promenade is a pleasant drive away.
We are less than one mile away from the pretty town of Vimoutiers, where there are several cafes, restaurants, boulangerie and supermarkets. There are some excellent restaurants nearby. We are about 50minutes away from the North Coast and Normandy landing beaches, and just over an hour from Bayeux where the famous tapestry is on display.
