Living in Normandy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Living in Normandy free pdf Living in Normandy depicts the many faces of a region inextricably linked to our own history and embodies an art of living that lies between seashore and country. The Normandy landscape is varied, encompassing both coastal and pastoral riches. Share in the relaxed Norman lifestyle by sauntering along the beach in Deauville or the boardwalk at Trouville, or strolling along riverbanks or through linseed fields and forests in springtime. Many gardens are open to visitors who can stroll the cloistered grounds of a monastery, frolic in the lavish castle grounds at Sassy or Vendeuvre, splash in the water garden at Nacqueville, forage through the organic vegetable garden at Villeray, and watercolor at Giverny. The region is famous for its marathon meals and generous servings, so much so that shots of Norman hard cider are used to make a "Normand hole" in the stomach to make room for subsequent courses. The most celebrated items on a Normand table include Calvados, Camembert, Cotentin oysters, hard cider, butter, and creme fraiche, all born from an ancestral savoir faire. Regional artisans still practice traditional crafts, including lacemaking from Alencon, majolica from Vieux Roeun, bells from Villedieu-les-Poeles, and the region's famous armoires and clocks. The indispensable "useful information" section provides the best places to eat, drink, and lodge, with an extensive list of restaurants, hotels, brasseries, bed and breakfasts, as well as stores, boutiques, antique dealers, and tips on where to sample the famous local products.
