Welcome to the ‘Quirky places Normandy’ section of my blog
If you look at this page, you are looking for secret places or unique experiences to visit Normandy differently. I was lucky to grow up in this region of France and even though I am expatriate, I go back at least twice a year for the moment. I love to visit the must-see places because they remind me of my childhood. But I also like to discover more unusual visits, off roads to learn more about its history and to live new experiences.
I really recommend you to discover Normandy through its gastronomy. Indeed, tasting, smelling, touching Norman specialties is a great way to learn more about Normandy. This will also allow you to meet its residents. The cities of Caen and Rouen that are must-see places, also have their own secrets. I invite you to browse the articles dedicated to them.
I hope you will also pick a few restaurants and hotels in this ‘Quirky places Normandy’ section so you can see my beautiful Normandy differently and enjoy incredible experiences!
My three most quirky experiences in Normandy among many others in this section
My funny electric bike ride with Hugo from Petite Reine Normandie. I was able to discover Bayeux and its surroundings as well as the landing beach of Arromanches in a different way. I also had a real crush for electric bikes !
The visit of the Men’s abbey in Caen by night! A truly unique way to learn more about its history and see the abbey a whole new way.
Calvados, Pommeau, Apple juice … with the visit of the Grandouet distillery our Norman drinks will no longer have secrets for you! Moreover, the distillery has kept its family dimension, so it is a fantastic way to connect with the locals.
