8 Instagram Ideas in Normandy

So many people want to get that perfect Instagram picture so it got me wondering what were the best subjects and could these be found in Normandy.  I did a bit of searching online and found 8 topics consistently being recommended as good for engagement ... and Normandy offers opportunities for each one!

Normandy Instagram Ideas

1) Fashion

Don't think that haute couture is limited to Paris or the glitzy seaside towns along the Med because you'll find plenty of fashion in Normandy.  Deauville has been loved by celebrities and actors for over 100 years and where-ever they go, high end shops are sure to follow. Coco Chanel opened her second boutique here after Paris and you'll also now find the likes of Hermès, Ralph Lauren and Longchamp.  If your budget won't stretch to buying a new outfit you can always wander to the beach and take your photo in front of the beach huts along Les Planches which are dedicated to famous Holywood actors.

2) Food

Seafood platters, Camembert and cider, tarte normande, crêpes, Calvados or perhaps you'll be brave enough to try tripe or andouille?  So much to choose from to get that perfect Normandy food photo.

3) Design

The port city of Le Havre was heavily bombed during World War 2 and rebuilt afterwards to the plans of the architect, Auguste Perret. His visionary designs have eared Le Havre UNESCO world Heritage status and together with some striking art installations, Le Havre offers plenty of opportunities for design-centric Instagram pictures.

4) Travel

Getting to Normandy provides plenty of chances to snap that great Instagram picture - by road you may well drive over the Pont de Normandie that straddles the estuary of the River Seine or by sea the impressive ferries can be very photogenic.  The sea also lends itself perfectly

If you've got an inspirational or motivational quote to share, Normandy can provide the perfect background with its beautiful countryside.  Or you could use Instagram to share your review of Eco-Gites of Lénault.

6) Events

Everyone loves to see what others are up to and Normandy can get you in the party spirit with carnivals, festivals and concerts all year.  And you won't have to travel far for a concert venue with the concert bar, Soubock, under 10kms from Eco-Gites of Lenault.

Normandy is the home of Impressionism and has been loved by artists for centuries. You can visit the many art galleries throughout the region, head to Monet's Garden or find innumerable sculptures, all ideal subjects for perfect Instagram pictures.
