    Chas,

    Normandy is quite large (by European standards) and varied. I'm not a local but nice places (although not really off the beaten track) I have been to include:
    - Honfleur
    - Cabourg
    - Trouville - Deauville

    These are all by the sea-side. There are some really nice little villages inlands and scenic routes as well. You should use Michelin road maps; scenic routes are identified by a green border.

    I hope you enjoy your trip and PM me if you happen to be in Paris.

    Louis
