From Giverny to Etretat, passing by the charming harbour of Honfleur, Normandy is the place to walk on the path of the Impressionist painters.
But Normandy is also famous for its internationally famous seaside resorts: Granville -the Monaco of the North where Christian Dior spent his childhood- and Deauville - glamorous destination from the 20's.

Lelouch won the Cannes Festival Golden Palm in 1966 and two Oscars in Hollywood, Shot in Deauville, it has turned the city into an international romantic destination.
