Home to the ports of Dieppe and Le Havre

Being on the north coast of France and not too far from Paris gives the ports of Upper-Normandy (or Haute-Normandie) a major advantage. As a result, Le Havre and Dieppe have both developed into important ports on international trading routes. However, Dieppe in particular, has retained its considerable charm with its attractive markets and friendly atmosphere.

The white cliffs

The area has a number of attractive seaside towns such as Etretat and Fecamp. And unlike much of the coast further west, the area boasts white cliffs to compete with the UK's own not too far away in Dover.

The Countryside

Wherever you go, the region reveals new attractions. With its timber-framed houses, majestic ruins of abbeys, chateaux and churches, and the soft light of the Seine, it's no wonder that artists found the area a source of inspiration.

A land of plenty

Although a large amount of Upper-Normandy is quite urbanised, this is still largely an agricultural area - with 45% of the region dedicated to arable farming. Amongst many other products, the area produces apple juice, calvados and the rather sweet Benedictine liqueur.

Travel to the region

The easiest way to get to Upper Normandy is to go by ferry to Dieppe or Le Havre, or even Ouistreham (Caen) in Lower Normandy. The Channel Tunnel is another option. Should you wish to fly, the nearest airports with direct flights to/from the UK are the Paris airports and Le Touquet, depending on where in the region you need to be.

A popular location at reasonable prices

Being so close to both the UK and Paris makes Upper-Normandy a very popular place amongst British second home buyers. Nevertheless, it is still possible to find properties at a reasonable price.
