“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece” said Claude Monet. And he chose Normandy as the place where he wanted to live, work and play. Who can blame him? Normandy has it all – exquisite countryside, fairy tale villages, castles, beaches, marvellous monuments and great gastronomy. It takes a very special tour to experience all of Normandy’s glories. And the Girls Guide to Paris’ magnificent week-long Normandy tour is very special indeed, taking you to the best of the area in every sense…

Picture Perfect Normandy tour

Cobbled street lined with quaint shops in ancient buildings on island of Mont Saint-Michel

This seriously super tour takes you on an enchanting journey through Normandy. From Monet’s house and extravagantly floral garden in glorious Giverny to Mont Saint-Michel, one of the wonders of the world. Historic towns, the D-Day landing beaches, Christian Dior’s childhood home and the beautifully detailed 1000 year old Bayeux Tapestry are all on your itinerary.

Boat in a tiny harbour, ancient stone buildings in the background at Honfleur

You will never forget your visit to wonderful Honfleur. This little harbour town bewitches visitors today as it did the impressionist artists. Filled with pickled in the past cobbled streets and half-timbered buildings it’s exquisitely pretty. Stand in the footsteps of Monet in Rouen as you contemplate the majestic beauty of the great Gothic Cathedral. Then head to dinner at the oldest auberge restaurant in France. You’ll be following in the footsteps of the American grand dame of cooking, Julia Child. She fell in love with French cuisine there…

You’ll also head off the beaten track to discover pretty villages, gorgeous castles including the birth place of William the Conqueror and wonderful beach walks alongside the opal coloured sea. Take a boat ride round the magnificent bay of Mont Saint-Michel and make a stop at the island of Jersey.

And you’ll be spoiled rotten throughout with the most fabulous restaurants and hotels…

Wine, dine and stay in luxury hotels

View from the cliff top of Etretat over the sea

Michelin starred restaurants, charming auberges, authentic and cosy cafés… This tour takes you to the crème de la crème of Normandy. And talking of cream – you’ll find it’s cheese heaven in the home of Camembert. So naturally you will indulge in a cheese tasting session as well as cider and Calvados, the famous Norman apple brandy. You will dine overlooking the beautiful cliffs of Etretat, enjoy the freshest seafood there is, irresistible cakes and desserts and the finest wines as you pamper your inner gourmand.

Stay in a romantic mansion, a stunning hotel overlooking the sea at Saint-Malo and an unforgettably lovely 15th century hotel in Rouen with a fabulous spa. Each hotel has been chosen for it’s authenticity, luxury, outstanding location and sheer loveliness.

Everything is taken care of so that you simply relax, enjoy the tour and have a fabulous time making memories you’ll cherish.
