When is the best time to travel to Normandy?

Summer! It is not hot or crowded. Normandy is generally a cold and rainy region but during the summer it is much nicer. June to August are the optimal months with the least rain and the most favorable temperatures, but May, September, and October are also great for visiting!

 

Summer is not hot in Normandy. The average high in July and August is 73 degrees Farenheit! The temperatures are mostly comfortable during the day and cool at night. As for crowds, there are almost none. The WW2 sites are very large and spacious and the cities and towns are not densely populated or overrun with tourists. The only place that is uncomfortably crowded (year round almost) is the Mont St Michel. However, we go there early in the morning to avoid the crowds. You will see it really start to get crazy around lunch time which is when we will be leaving.

Brenda   August 2018

Normandy, France has been on my husband's bucket list for years. We could not be more pleased. The itinerary from the time they pick you up at the Charles de Gaulle airport until the end of the tour is nothing short of perfection. It's all planned and your only responsibility is showing up in the hotel lobby at the designated time in the morning and then you're off on a full day's adventure. [...] The beaches of Normandy and the American cemetery was a real highlight of the trip. We visited chateaus, enjoyed a Calvados tour and tasting, loved our cheese factory tasting [...] I could write so much more. Julia and Stephane's tour is a real find. They advertise, "See France like a local" and it is exactly what we did!

Bill   August 2019

If you really want to experience and enjoy Normandy, sign up for a tour with this outstanding family-operated company. Julia, her friend Peter, and her father Stephane will personally escort your small group to the major sites, e.g., the World War II beaches and Mont St. Michel, as well as many locations that you would be unlikely to discover on your own. Examples include lunch at a country farmhouse, a visit to a small farm which is the last to make authentic Camembert cheese, and a first-class dinner at a racetrack. Their attention to detail in choice of hotels, restaurants and knowledgeable tour guides was exceptional. [...] We could not recommend TripUSAFrance more highly.

Dorothy   July 2019

My husband and I LOVED!! touring Normandy and surrounding places with Julia, her charming dad, Stefan, and friend Peter. They made us feel like we were part of their family. Each restaurant, hotel, tour guide ( they hire the best) was carefully selected and they went over and above our expectations to make it a wonderful experience for all.
Each day was meticulously planned and we could have never seen and experienced all that was offered on this tour on our own. This was our first time touring with a group and I would recommend it highly!!
