Largely flat Artois and Flanders include some of the most heavily industrialized parts of the country. However, there are many good reasons to explore the area, not least its strong associations with the most devastating battles of World War I, which recently marked its hundredth anniversary. Other big draws are the bustling port town of, ‘s university atmosphere and poignant war memorials, and the delightful village of, a rare example of a Flemish hill settlement., and are strong contenders in terms of charm and interest and the castle at would make Walt Disney proud. Northern France has always been on the path of various invaders into the country, from northern mainland Europe as well as from Britain, and the events that have taken place in Flanders, Artois and Picardy have shaped both French and world history. The bloodiest battles were those of World War I, above all the five-month-long; at, near, the trenches have been preserved in perpetuity; a visit to either of these is highly recommended in order to understand the sacrifice involved and the futility of the war., meanwhile, boasts some of France’s finest cathedrals, including those at, and.

In, you’ll find your fill of food, culture and entertainment. Now firmly incorporated into the French mainstream, the seaboard province of Normandy has a history of prosperous and powerful independence. Colonized by Vikings from the ninth century onwards, it went on to conquer not only England but as far afield as Sicily and areas of the Near East. Later, as part of France, it was instrumental in the settlement of Canada. Normandy’s wealth has always depended on its ports:, on the Seine, is the nearest navigable point to Paris, while, and have important transatlantic trade.
Inland, it is overwhelmingly agricultural – a fertile belt of tranquil pastureland, where the chief interest for many will be the groaning restaurant tables of regions such as the. While parts of the coast are overdeveloped, due either to industry, as with the huge sprawl of Le Havre, or tourism – as along the “Norman Riviera”, around and – ancient harbours such as and remain irresistible, and numerous seaside villages lack both crowds and affectations. The banks of the Seine, too, hold several delightful little communities. Normandy also boasts extraordinary Romanesque and Gothic architectural treasures, although only its much-restored capital, Rouen, retains a complete medieval centre. Elsewhere, the attractions are more often single buildings than entire towns.
Most famous of all is the spectacular merveille on the island of, but there are also the monasteries at and, the cathedrals of Bayeux and Coutances, and Richard the Lionheart’s castle above the Seine. Has its vivid and astonishing tapestry, while more recent creations include Monet’s garden. Furthermore, Normandy’s vernacular architecture makes it well worth exploring inland – rural back roads are lined with splendid centuries-old half-timbered manor houses. It’s remarkable how much has survived – or, less surprisingly, been restored – since the landings in 1944 and the subsequent Battle of Normandy, which has its own legacy in war museums, memorials and cemeteries.

Authoritative accounts cover everything from the landscapes and wildlife to Brittany and Normandy's fascinating history and lively musical festivals. If there’s one word that British visitors indelibly associate with Brittany, it’s beaches. Great beaches are everywhere you look, from the posh north-coast watering hole of Dinard, beloved by nineteenth-century British aristocrats, to any number of humbler family resorts strung along the entire, endlessly intricate and gloriously unpredictable coastline. Some of the region’s abundant strands of sand bustle with life and energy, and are lined with hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets; others lie tucked away at the end of unpromising little rural lanes, rewarding those who take the trouble to find them with splendid, unspoiled isolation.
I love guidebooks and I buy lots of them. If you are looking for budget accommodations, Rick Steves' France would be good. (I am using both Frommer's France and RS France to plan for a trip next year, and RS seems to have more detailed info on the places I'm going, even though Frommer's is bigger.) I rely primarily on TA reviews for lodging, but that's difficult on the road. For our drive through the Loire valley earlier this summer, I bought the DK Loire Guide, a Cadogan guide, and a Thomas Cook drive around Loire guide.
The DK book has nice pictures, but otherwise wasn't very useful. I brought the Cadogan guide with us, but it was maddening because it had website URLs instead of street addresses and other practical information. Drive Around Loire has several suggested tours which didn't match what we were doing, so its chapter organization didn't work for me, but it has all the practical info like hours, etc. For our trip next year, I just bought two new books. (Did I mention that I love guidebooks?) They are both driving tour books: DK and Frommer's. Frommer's has better itineraries for where we are going.
If you can get to a bookstore that has both, it would be ideal to compare them. For Paris, I like the DK top 10 guide because it is small enough to easily carry around.
For reasonable restaurant recommendations, check this website and the reviews by arrondissement (and some outside ): Also check the promotions available on LaFourchette. Restaurants post their menus outside and if you stay away from places near tourist sites, especially the places with English menus, you will find better options. Just to finish the story--we stayed 4 nights in an excellent airbnb in Rouen, driving back north to visit the Somme battlefields, etc.
And saw all the sights of Rouen, then moved to Bayeux (and an even nicer airbnb (steps from the tapestry)--loved the town--very easy to get to all the D-Day sights. Only complaint about both cities--all the sights and museums shut at 5:00 and many restaurants shut after lunch and at 10:00 at night!
Ended up having a lot of picnics--but the weather was wonderful. Can't believe Rick completely leaves out the northern part of France (Picardy, Calais, etc. And all the Somme area) in his France guides. His Snapshot Normandy advice was great for the D-day sights--includes a section on Canada, German cemeteries, etc. We even went to Dunkirk --only 'missed' Dieppe (a big Canadian interest) and the Amiens cathedral.
