Foodie hotels in Normandy

Mark and David's verdict:

For a rich slice of France - and we do mean rich - hop across the Channel to Normandy, famed for its creamy sauces, heady cider, cheeses and apple brandy. As well as food, you can feast on the region's historic towns, lush countryside, charming fishing villages and a coastline that inspired the Impressionists.
