Normandy evokes a flourishing connection for contemporary, medieval, and ancient history. The landscape is rich and diverse, ranging from textured sands at low tide to vibrant seaside harbors overlooking the coastline. The rugged ocean crashes into dramatic limestone cliffs and tranquil valleys create an ethereal pastoral ambiance.
Your plane lands in Paris where your private transfer awaits your arrival. You leave the Charles de Gaulle Airport behind and immediately venture into the sweeping beauty of Honfleur, once the inspiration for impressionist painters Monet and Boudin. The port town maintains its charm in the rugged maritime past radiating from the Old Harbor. Boats wade in the gentle waters. Tall, thin houses line the dock and date back to the 16th century. The seaside aroma filters through the air. Dozens of fishing boats linger in Avant Port, their masts adding to the town’s skyline. In the morning, they sell their catch at the vibrant local fish market. The aroma of buttery seafood emanates from the Michelin Starred restaurant Ferme Saint-Simeon. Locals and visitors sit out on the terrace with a view to the sea and savor every bite. Your transfer leads you to Port en Bessin located on the seaside overlooking a natural harbor. The houses have angled, tiled roofs, and you find the quintessential northern French town to be nothing less than enchanting.
