Focus on the built heritage of Basse-Normandie

The Basse-Normandie region is rich in historical treasures: ancient forts from the mediaeval period, religious buildings, the ancestral abbeys at Mont-Saint-Michel… This landscape has inspired artists and gives work to the region’s EPVs that restore and perpetuate this heritage. They work with stone and wood, preserving the "tomette” tiles typical of the region, the massive fireplaces in the large "bâtisse” houses that watch over the countryside and the tradition of half-timbered houses. The concern for heritage contributes to the charm of this region where the warm architecture invites you to enjoy the good life.
