A culinary voyage of discovery: Accommodation in Lower Normandy

Your apartment in Lower Normandy is located in one of the most historically significant landscapes in France. History began in 1066 when William the Conqueror crossed the English Channel from here and conquered England at the Battle of Hastings. In 1944, the Allies, who landed on the extensive beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944, also took advantage of the strategically valuable location to liberate France and, subsequently, the whole of Europe from National Socialism. Numerous memorials near your holiday home in Lower Normandy commemorate this day, which marked the end of the Second World War. Calvados is one of the most famous regional delicacies in the world. Normandy has always been regarded as the centre of apple growing due to the mild climate of the Gulf Stream, the harvest of which has also been refined into brandy since the 15th century. The amber-coloured noble brandy may only be produced and sold as Calvados in eleven narrowly defined areas of the Basse-Normandie region. A trip to Lavarot is recommended for an extensive taste. The centre of horse breeding is the Département Orne. The landscape is characterised by Norman hedge landscapes, manor houses and herds of cows, which also provide the most important raw material for a second well-known speciality: camembert. Legend has it that the white mould cheese was invented in the village of the same name and owes its spread primarily to the taste of Emperor Napoleon III, who was so enthusiastic about the first tasting that he immediately had the cheese put on the imperial court table – the rest is history. You can visit some of the best cheese dairies in Camembert. Another reason for spending the night in Lower Normandy.

Apartments in Basse-Normandie (France) – in view of the Great Abbey

The Basse-Normandie region is above all closely linked to a tourist attraction that is symbolic of the whole of northern France: the Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel. The construction of the abbey, high above the bay, was begun in 708 and is still regarded today as a masterpiece of medieval engineering. It was commissioned by Aubert von Avranches, who had the first simple sacred building erected on the Kosterberg. However, the largest extension began at the beginning of the 11th century – the construction work was to last more than 500 years. The architectural style elements, which range from Romanesque to Classicism, are correspondingly varied. Today the abbey is one of the most famous and most visited monuments in the world, in the immediate vicinity of which you will also find numerous private holiday apartments in Lower Normandy. The tumulus of Colombiers-sur-Seulles is much older and surrounded by a strong mystical aura. The megalithic complexes were built around 4000 BC and are the last remaining ones in Normandy. The function of the plant is still being discussed, as well as whether there is a connection to Stonehenge in Great Britain. In reality, these questions are of no importance, especially if you visit the turbines in the evening and waft fog over the surrounding hills. At the latest then you will feel the mystical power of the monoliths right inside you. Especially the numerous culinary delights are a good reason to refrain from couchsurfing in Lower Normandy and to treat yourself to some quiet hours in a private holiday apartment after a long festive time. It would be a shame to concentrate on just one place – the region has far too much to offer. You can book the suitable apartments in Normandy for a round trip directly at 9flats.com.
