Normandy, the land of cider, Camembert and Calvados is a gently rolling landscape liberally dotted with dairy farms, medieval castles, attractive half-timbered houses and small, animated towns. Visits are possible to many manufacturers and we can offer guided tours of intriguing towns such as Bernay or Lisieux, and certainly Rouen! Your itinerary can follow the historical aspects of the area as in our sample programme below or we can tailor-make an alternative to meet your needs.

• Bayeux Tapestry

• Basilica of the teenage saint

• Theresa at Lisieux

• Camembert cheese factory

• Caen boasting the Memorial de la Paix

No visit to Normandy is complete without a trip to Le Mont St. Michel, almost on the Brittany border. The steep and demanding climb up is well worth it for stupendous views over the estuary and surrounding countryside, but also for the abbatial church and cloisters suspended between earth and heaven. A visit to Le Mont can easily be tied in with a couple of hours in St. Malo, a walled town in Brittany. The road back to your accommodation may well skirt Villedieu-les-Poêles, a charming little town whose iron foundry is worth a visit.

Accommodation is based in either two star hotels or youth centres depending upon your budget and requirements.
