Normandy is located in northern France, not far from the British island. It has an authentic countryside of an extreme beauty. Hills, valleys, villages, towns, cliffs and sandy beaches, all this you can find there. A very friendly population as well. There is, of course, no guaranty for sunshine and a blue sky - but if you are lucky (as I was in early May '97) you will find a country like this:
