Romantic Normandy

Normandy is always beautiful, but it is only really a party in the spring. The many apple trees in bloom provide a rural picture, especially when they stand next to those beautiful country houses, 'manors'. By the sea, the rolling greenery suddenly turns into spectacular white cliffs. Normandy is known for the three c's: camembert, cider, calvados. Shopping here is therefore a party if you like tasty cheeses and an alcoholic drink that tastes like apple. In northern Normandy, the country consists of a huge chalk plateau, the Pays de Caux. On the coast this creates the beautiful high white cliffs; a chalk coast that is not inferior to the well-known British variant. The most spectacular coast can be found at Étretat, where the water has carved jagged arches from the soft rock. A favorite subject of painters who put their easel on the beach here in the 19th century. They were the first impressionists, artists who were finally able to work outside thanks to the invention of the portable easel, not to mention paint in tubes. Resounding names like Renoir, Gauguin, Degas and Monet. He once spent a whole winter here, working in the snow. In six years he painted as many as 150 canvases of the Normandy coast.

Arques – la – Bataille

Embedded in the greenery, Varengeville sur mer is a beautiful small village. It is therefore not surprising that you will also find a beautiful visiting garden here, Le Bois des Moutiers. The design is by the English landscape gardener Gertrude Jekyll (1843–1932), one of the most famous gardeners of her time. The garden is located by a beautiful old country house with tearoom and extends all the way to the cliff coast. A well-known and much visited site is the enormous ruin of the 15th century castle of Arques, in Arques – la – Bataille. Much rougher than the lovely Bois des Moutiers, not much is left of it. But the castle has earned its spurs. The village is named after the battle that took place here in 1589, when the Protestant Henri IV pushed back an army of 30,000 Catholics with cannons atop the castle walls. An association of volunteers is trying to restore the castle, as it is a beautiful example of military architecture in the Middle Ages.

Bells ring in Normandy

A little further vin Arques – la – Bataille is another castle: the 16th century Château de Miromesnil. You can buy tickets here in the small, attractive souvenir shop. The castle derives some fame from the fact that the famous writer Guy de Maupassant was born there on August 5, 1850. It is an intimate castle and the estate around it is also special. The kitchen garden is still surrounded by a high brick wall. Especially the 16th century chapel Saint-Antoine-l'Ermite, on an avenue in a beautiful old beech forest, makes the visit very special. Enthusiasts can ring the bell here themselves. Beech forests such as that at Château de Miromesnil are typical of the Pays de Caux. Further north you will discover the Forêt d'Eu, a former royal hunting estate, as can be seen from the old signposts at the crossroads. You look out over the Vallée de l'Yeres and walk on winding paths between blue fields full of forest anemones. Are you hungry for this cultural tour? A piece of fish in a restaurant on the harbor in Le Tréport is an absolute must.
