Known for holding some of the world’s finest produce, Normandy, in Northern France, is a gastronomical wonder. The region’s delicacies and restaurants owe a lot to its expansive coastline and idyllic countryside surroundings, with menus often based around local, seasonal ingredients. The area is also home to the monumental D-Day landings, which today are brought to life on the region’s beaches by expert guides. If you’re planning a self-drive holiday, the 80-mile Alabaster Coast is a true spectacle, with enormous white chalk cliffs that span from the scenic town of Etretat to the coastal village of Dieppe.
