About the Region
This area comprises the departements of Seine Maritime, Calvados, Manche, Orne and Eure.
Renowned for its cheeses, cider and Calvados, it is popular with those looking for a tranquil second home to enjoy the French way of life and yet remaining accessible to the UK with ferry ports at Le Havre, Caen and Cherbourg as well as good road access back to the Tunnel. Golf, fishing, tennis and walking are amongst the sporting activities possible. The coastal areas offer apartments overlooking the sea and the wide sandy beaches. The area offers much historical interest in Bayeux plus the Normandy landing beaches.
The property styles vary in each departement. The Seine Maritime offers many traditional colombages properties as does Calvados whereas the Manche has many more stone houses. Brick built houses are available throughout. You will find a lovely range of chateaux as well as farmhouses with outbuildings and pretty cottages with thatched roofs.
