7 Reasons to Visit Normandy This Spring

Water Lilies at l'Orangerie

From the end of April until the end of September, the 2nd annual Normandy Impressionist Festival offers an extensive array of exhibitions and other events at numerous venues in both upper and lower Normandy.

The 32nd annual Jazz Sous les Pommiers takes place May 4-11 in Coutances. This event draws some big names and is a must for any jazz lover!

The city of Rouen will welcome the Armada Festival to its harbor in early June, with more than 50 tall ships expected to sail into town.

Bayeux

Le Musée d'Art et d'Histoire Baron Gérard recently opened in Bayeux. Admittedly, I am rather fond of this charming medieval town, and I think this new museum gives it just one more reason to visit.

Visit with local producers every Tuesday and Thursday at Cider and Calvados tastings throughout the month of April in the beautiful Normandy village of Beuvron-en-Auge.

Pommeau and Cider and Calvados, oh my!

For flower lovers, there's a Tulip Festival that runs until the end of April in the stunning gardens of the Château de Vendeuvre.

Late spring is the beginning of mussel season in Barfleur. I can't wait to head to our favorite place for moules frîtes!
