Gothic architecture in Normandy

Published on April 14, 2016 by Chris Robinson

The Notre-Dame Cathedral in Coutances is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in Normandy. The imposing building dominates the Coutances skyline with its grandeur. Close up, you get to see the intricate detail both inside and on the exterior. Gargoyles, rabbits, archers and dragons are just some of the elements to be found. These twin towers on the North end rise majestically to a height of 80 meters. Entrance to the cathedral is free.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
