Normandy and Brittany, two regions in northern France that are rich with history and surrounded by the sea.
Join Alliance Française for a discovery of la Normandie and la Bretagne. From the Carnac stones dating back 4500 BCE to William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings in 1066 to the D-DayBeaches where Allied troops fought to liberate Europe in the World War II, history abounds in every village. Calvados, crêpes and fruits de mer are just some of the local specialties we will sample as we visit gardens, castles and enjoy a promenade en mer of the English Channel and then the Gulf of Morbihan.
The Normandy & Brittany trip includes 10 days and 9 nights, from May 4 to 13, 2022 , with four nights in Trouville-sur-Mer, one night on the Mont-Saint- Michel, and four nights in Rennes. This unique experience is perfect for people with a spirit of exploration and adventure. Please note access to Mont-Saint-Michel includes more than 300 steps, many of which are very steep. The tour is organized by Christina Selander Bouzouina, Executive Director, Alliance Française. Land only, airfare not included.
Rendez-vous in Trouville-sur-Mer!
Just 2 and half hours from the Gare St Lazare in Paris, we’ll meet in the lobby of our hotel in this beautiful seaside town where we will spend four days visiting by land and by sea the Normand cities of Deauville, Trouville-sur-Mer, Honfleur, Etretat, Caen, Bayeux, as well as the D-Day Beaches and American cemetery remembering those who lost their lives on June 6, 1944. On our way to Brittany, we’ll spend one night at the legendary Mont-Saint-Michel including a tour pieds nus in the sand during low tide. After a stop for lunch in Saint Malo, we’ll venture on to Rennes for four nights as we take daytrips to Carnac, Vannes, Quiberon and Vitré including a tour of the château by the same name, as well as a cruise on the Gulf of Morbihan and crêpe-making class.
