If you need to escape the elements, head to Normandy's history museums. These are ideal places to learn about the local culture and perhaps pick up a souvenir. Stop at Normandy's historic war relics and monuments, it's a great way to get to know the area's fascinating history.
Don't forget to check out the region's much-loved waterways. Swimming and canoeing are some of the most popular ways to get wet here.
When it's time to leave, say a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the places you've enjoyed.
