Search the best hotels in Normandy
Normandy's landscape is green, pleasant and rolling. From the waves of La Manche (The English Channel) lapping against smooth sand dunes to the green meadows. We have a wide range of accommodation for you to choose from in the region. Our selection of the best places to stay in Normandy encompasses chic farmhouse B&Bs, seaside hotels for all the family and luxury retreats for a spoiling break.
If you drive through this rural countryside you'll see apple orchards and cows. Many of the tiny towns you come across will have their own local cheeses named after the town - such as the most famous soft-cheese, Camembert. The apples are for cider which you may find goes surprisingly well with the cheese. For off-the-beaten-track Nornandy you could start your search in Moutiers-au-Perche, a quiet backwater, perfect for some down-time.
Camembert - and every other town seems to have its own cheese. Pont l'Eveque, Livarot and Pave d'Auge are some of those most frequently recommended. But stroll the lanes in the dairy farming heartland between old villages and all seem to produce their own cheeses which are served up in the many excellent little hotels and restaurants. The French themselves come here for the food and the local style (a la normande) is thick, buttery and creamy.
But rural idyll is not what first springs to mind at the mention of Normandy. Many people will think first of the famous beach-battlefields of WW2.
Today the famous 80km of beaches where the D-Day landings took place are just wide open stretches of sand. Fringed occasionally by a fishing village or seaside resort and of course the many memorials, museums and cemeteries commemorating that period. We recommend that you base yourself in Le Havre, Cherbourg or Bayeux for easy access to all these sights.
There are lots of small museums and memorials but in Bayeux you'll find the Commonwealth War Cemetery, the largest British Commonwealth wartime cemetery in France, home to the graves of 4,144 British dead, and the memorial for another 1,800 whose bodies were never recovered and the Bayeux Military Museum. In Caen is the Peace Museum.
The name Bayeux is also synonymous with the great tapestry. This 900 year old, 70 metre length of seamless embroidery tells the story of William the Conqueror's disputed claim to the British throne which was eventually settled during the Battle of Hastings.
Chartres is another good place to stay for history buffs. It has a world famous gothic cathedral in a completely charming old town. Plus you're only an hour from Paris by train.
Barneville-Carteret is one the best places to stay in Normandy for seafood. It's has a bustling port and there are plenty of great restaurants.
Normandy, and especially the areas along the Seine, has a long tradition of producing art. The Impressionists gathered here to paint the area's strange and wonderful light and Honfleur is renowned for its connections to these artists.
Giverny is where Claude Monet, one of Normandy's most famous sons, made his home after he'd become successful. His house and gardens - and especially the famous waterlily lake - are now a great museum to his life and work. A museum where many of the objects have remained in the same position since he lived here himself.
Rouen is a good destination for art lovers. As well as his gardens at Giverny, Monet also famously painted Rouen Cathedral - day after day. Some of his cathedral work can be seen at the Musee des Beaux Arts, along with many other Impressionist and Flemish works.
Another of the best places to stay in Normandy for art lovers is Etretat, a charming little seaside resort made popular at the turn of the century by artists such as Edgar Degas, Eugene Delacroix, Gustave Courbet and Monet.
For cuisine a la normande
- Ivan Vautier in Caen boasts five stars worth of sleek and contemporary rooms with a Michelin starred restaurant.
- Le Mascaret is also one of the best places to stay in Normandy for foodies. Its kitchen has a Michelin star, but its not super-fancy-French, just excellent. This is also one to book if you like quirky hotels. The five rooms have all been individually decorated - some with more style than others. But the courtyard, swimming pool and terrace are all lovely.
- Le Manoir du Lys offers gourmet michelin starred cuisine in a beautiful setting in the Andaine Forest. Bedrooms are stylish and contemporary plus you can enjoy the swimming pool, tennis court and lovely gardens.
- La Marine overlooks the bay in Barneville-Carteret. Here you'll find Michelin starred dining along with bright contemporary rooms and glorious views.

- The Château du Rozel is on the ‘manor house-y’ side of the château scale, located just minutes from the coast with beautiful views ad lovely grounds. There are four rooms with the château and several cottages on the grounds, which have all their own facilities and views out to see.
- The Château de Flottemanville is an elegant château B&B with three rooms ad a number of cottages with living areas and kitchens. There’s also a chapel in the grounds. The decor is quite traditional, but less so in the cottages, which are well set up for families.
For value for money
- One of the best places to stay in Normandy if you're after great value is the Hostellerie de la Renaissance. This charming restaurant with rooms offers simple, contemporary accommodation and fantastic food! It's a great base if you want to explore the Pays d'Auge. Doubles from as little as €89 per night.
- Auberge de la Source is another lovely restaurant with rooms. Just 4km from Honfleur, here you'll find chic accommodation in a delightful half timbered farmhouse all from only €115 per night.
