This private luxury tour features the best of Normandy: beautiful landscapes, important historic sites, medieval towns and rustic villages, and superb cuisine.
Arrive in Paris and transfer directly to Normandy for several nights at a luxury chateau hotel. En route, you may wish to stop in Rouen to explore the medieval old town and its many historic sites, excellent museums, and renowned antique districts. With your private Normandy expert, tour the D-Daylanding beaches and other significant World War II-related sites such as the Normandy American Cemetery, the Mulberry Artificial Harbors, and the Caen Museum of Peace. Also, visit the historic town of Bayeux to see the famous tapestry illustrating the Norman invasion of England in 1066.
One day, enjoy a private excursion to Mont Saint-Michel, a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site. This enormous abbey and town on a tidal island has been a pilgrimage site since ancient times, and it remains one of Europe's most popular attractions.
Next, you will be transferred through the Normandy countryside. Explore charming villages filled with thatched cottages and fruit orchards. Sample the gourmet cheeses of the Pays d’Auge in the towns that give them their names: Livarot, Camembert and Pont l'Eveque. Follow the Cider Route, visiting cellars and sampling Calvados and Pommeau.
Spend several nights in the picturesque port of Honfleur, long popular with artists. Tour the upscale seaside resort of Deauville and browse the town’s exclusive shops, visit the morning market, and walk along the boardwalk, admiring the Beaux Arts and half-timbered buildings facing the beach. Depending on your travel dates, you may also wish to attend a horse race or polo match.
