Normandy in Spring, Summer or Autumn. Always lots of colour and things to see.
Our first view of our accommodation.
Friendly and comfortable, and beautifully peaceful.
Also a very pleasant area for sitting outside
and writing postcards or, having a drink!
Went to Giverny to see Monet's Gardens. 'Gorgeous' !!
Monet's Gardens at Giverny are constantly maintained.
of the season in bloom.
Iris, Roses, Poppies, Nasturtium
This place is an absolute riot of colour.
North of Giverny. On chalk cliffs overlooking the River Seine. King Richard the Lionheart's 12th century Castle 'Chateau Gaillard'.
(We had a really great picnic!)
Went to Carrouges. 13th - 16th century.
One of most important chateau of its style
Chateau d'O'. Extremely pretty little chateau.
Surrounded by a moat and set in wonderful parkland.
Falaise. Town where William the Conqueror was born.
Castle built by his son on ancestral site and now beautifully restored.
A day at Omaha Beach, part of the D-Day Landing Beaches and, the American War Cemetery at Coleville. A beautiful but sad and moving place.Arromanches with remains of the Mulberry Floating Harbour.
Visit to Bayeux to see the Tapestry. Awsome! Made soon after the Norman invasion of England in the year 1066
Spent all morning looking at tapestry and related museum.
Afterwards went to see Bayeux Cathedral.
What a facinating place
Chateau de Crevcoeur-en-Auge is!
This is a wonderful mixture
of 16th &17th century timberframed buildings
and mediaeval stone castle,
which was held by the English during
the 'Hundred Years War'.
This was followed with a visit to the gorgeous 16th century Chateau of St.Germain-de-Livet. Built between the hills it is surrounded by a moat which is fed by a local stream. Pretty formal Gardens. Peacocks roam freely in the grounds!
Thank-you Normandy Safaris for a wonderful holiday!
