There, on the beaches of Normandy, I began to reflect on the wonders of these ordinary people whose lives were laced with the markings of greatness.
Located only 2.5 hours away from Paris, the region of Normandy is a great place to enjoy the French countryside, marvel at the iconic Mont-Saint-Michel or relive the famous D-Day beach landings of World War II. With great shopping opportunities, long sandy beaches, various family-friendly accommodation options, and a delicious culinary heritage, Normandy is a great extension to a family break in Paris.
