Normandy Property Sale
The North West of France, and, in particular, the Normandy area, offers some of the best value property to be found in the country. Normandy property is much desired by those looking for a holiday home within easy reach of the UK, enabling owners and their families to experience rural France on weekend trips. Normandy comprises 5 French departments grouped into Lower and Upper Normandy: Calvados, Manche and Orne centred around such lovely towns as Alencon, Argentan, Flers and St Lo; and Eure and Seine Maritime with the towns of Rouen, Deauville, Bernay, Evreux and Les Andelys. It is a mainly agricultural area with rolling pastures and a temperate climate similar to southern Britain.
We have beautiful Normandy properties in all of these departments, and also the neighbouring departments of Paris, the Loire (Indre et Loire, Indre, Loire Atlantique, Loir-et-Cher, Loiret, Maine et Loire) and Pays de la Loire (Mayenne, Sarthe). These include cottages, houses, farmhouses, chateaux, apartments, bungalows and other Normandy properties.
Inhabited by humans since the Palaeolithic era, Normandy was conquered by the Romans who founded many settlements such as Rouen and Evreux. Nordic tribes invaded during the 2nd century and remained until the Franks arrived in the 4th century. In the 9th century, Normandy was again conquered - this time by Vikings, or Norsemen, from whom it gained its name. In 911, the Earl of Orkney became the first Duke of Normandy after forcing the King of France, Charles, to concede the lands. His descendant, William, would return to the British Isles from Normandy to claim the English throne. From then until 1450, Normandy was held in English hands, after which it was secured by France and became a semi-autonomous state.
Probably most famously, Normandy lay host to the series of landings of Allied troops following D-Day in June 1944. The area is unfortunately rich in memorials and cemeteries for those who died and informative tours can be arranged locally to learn about the sacrifices they made and their importance in the course of the war. Caen houses the Memorial For Peace, a large collection of exhibits documenting the events of World War II.
The beautiful towns and villages, despite their popularity amongst the French and foreign tourists, remain relatively untouched. With half-timbered buildings ten-a-penny, there are attractive and affordable Normandy properties to suit almost all budgets - even for those looking for a stately French chateaux. There are still numerous sleepy corners to be found where the sweet song of the birds or the chiming of a church bell is likely the only sounds you'll hear. Owning a property in Normandy offers an enormous variety of leisure activities, academic pursuits and cultural diversions - and if you're after the quiet life, what better way to relax than to enjoy a local wine while the green quilted patchwork of the countryside bustles with life around you.
