Tour Itinerary

           

Monday – Having been collected by taxi from home you will join your luxury coach and travel to Folkstone for our Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We continue south to Normandy for a 3-night stay. If time allows we will make a stop at Le Touquet on route to our hotel. Time to settle in before tonight’s dinner.

 

Tuesday – This morning we visit the beautiful house and gardens of artist Claude Monet in Giverny. There are two parts to explore, a flower or cottage garden at the front of the house and a Japanese inspired water garden on the other side of the road, accessed by a tunnel under the road which is famous for his painting ‘The Water Lily Pond’. This afternoon we continue our day with a tour at the Chateau du Breuil distillery to discover the distillation process for Calvados pays d’auge, a genuine symbol of the gourmet heritage of the region of Normandy. We will end our visit with a tasting in the old press room to round up the day.

 

Wednesday – After breakfast, we start the morning with a visit to the great cheese producing town of Livarot and the independent family run business of the E Graindorge cheese dairy. Three generations of cheese makers have succeeded since 1910, a unique concept allowing visitors to discover cheese workshops to follow the production from the arrival of the milk to the packaging of the finished product, we will end the visit with tasting of course! This afternoon we take you to the beautiful city of Honfleur where the seine river meets the English Channel. The old harbour lined with 16th to 18th century town houses has been the subject for artists for generations.

 

Thursday – We leave Lisieux and head to Boulogne sur Mer for a lunch stop before continuing to Calais for our Eurotunnel crossing returning back to the UK after our ‘Normandy adventure’.
