From Mont Saint Michel, Normandy (on the Brittany border) to Rouen Normandy is about the same size as Belgium.  From Le Havre and Rouen the Chaux (chalk) region has expansive sugar beet fields and white coastal cliffs.  Inland are vast beech forests and fertile meadows.  Central Normandy you'll find half-timbered cottages and apple orchards dropping away to Suisse Normandy (little Switzerland) with almost hidden wooded river valleys.  The Cotentin peninsula features vast areas of natural beauty and national parks consisting of marsh-land (havens for bird life and under the migration route) into the criss-cross patchwork of small fields sweeping back to the Brittany border.
