Normandy, birthplace of impressionism

From the precursors of Impressionism like Turner, Millet and Boudin, and Impressionists like Monet and Pissarro, to present-day painters, Normandy has long welcomed artists in their droves, come to capture its beautiful landscapes and seascapes, changeable weather and ephemeral light.


The Normandy countryside looks outwards to the sea, opening up fresh horizons and possibilities: a rich maritime history, a heady, addictive dose of iodine and sea air, blowing over the coast and forever associated with freedom. In Normandy you'll find an abundance of protected natural landscapes offering spectacular views and bathed in a light you get nowhere else.


Huge thanks to Hélène et Gilles, you were the perfect hosts.
