  • Stay in a medieval town, very typical of Brittany, enjoying the view over the Cathedral from your room.

Amazing Mont Saint Michel

  • Spend the next 3 nights in a 19th century typical stone Normandy home surrounded by a lovely garden, located 20 minutes from the famous Mont Saint Michel.
  • Here, you will enjoy a peaceful environment - away from the touristy crowds, in a home decorated around nostalgic roses, engravings, and Indonesian furniture.
  • The property is surrounded by a lovely garden where you can relax, and it is walking distance from several restaurants. 
  • A place you won't want to miss is Mont Saint Michel: this sumptuous abbey standing on a tiny island in the middle of a bay is truly the “8th wonder of the Western world” and is well worth a visit. We plan that you take a private guided tour to Mont Saint Michel village & abbey to really appreciate the site.
  • We will also take you to Saint Malo, Dinan and Cancale area:  its lovely ports, granite stone towns and delicious crêpes are a real addition to your immersion into the Northern France culture.

Bayeux area : WWII Sites, William the Conqueror & lovely towns

  • From here, you are within reach of all the D-Day sites and museums: from Sainte Mère Eglise to Ouistreham, Isigny, Pointe du Hoc, the artificial port of Arromanches or the Caen Memorial. 
  • Deauville is within driving distance and the Normandy countryside might be less famous but is certainly worth a detour: the typical half-timbered villages, the Cider road, the beautiful English style gardens, the apple brandy traditional manufacturers . . . and of course the cheeses.
  • A trip to Normandy would not be complete without tasting Camembert or Livarot cheese! To get familiar with Norman gastronomy, we have planned for you a cooking class with Brigitte. She will welcome you in her home where you’ll prepare a 3 course meal that you will savor for lunch. A fun experience!

Giverny, Home of the Impressionnists

  • Your journey ends in Giverny. This tiny unchanged village takes you back to the 19th century when the great painter Claude Monet created a new art movement: impressionism.
  • Monet's gardens are beautifully maintained, exactly as they were when Monet painted them. 
  • In Giverny, we have planned a 2-night-stay in a historical domain from the 13th century, which has been beautifully restored, only few minutes’ walk to Monet’s house & gardens. This will give you enough time to discover the Seine river valley.
