apple orchards and loamy pastures, of windswept
cliffs and wave-dashed beaches, is to fall in love
with its generous charms. This is one of France's
largest regions. Its five départements—Calvados,
Eure, Manche, Orne, and Seine-Maritime—are
divided into Upper and Lower Normandy. Within easy
reach of the French capital, Normandy is often called
the "lungs of Paris," and it lies but
a short sail across the Channel from Britain. Read

Legacy of Claude Monet It
isn't a palace or royal legend that brings
travelers to this tiny village 75 kilometers
northwest of Paris; what draws crowds to Giverny
is the artistic legacy of Claude Monet. From
1883 until his death in 1926, Monet lived
and worked in these sublime surroundings,
a setting he created largely by and for himself.
