Itinerary

2020 Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to our overnight hotel in northern France.

  • Day 2 - Mont St. Michel & Dinan

    Travel through Normandy to Mont St. Michel, a magnificent architectural masterpiece built on an ancient mount that is surrounded by the sea at high tide. Wander around the winding cobbled streets leading up to the abbey and walk around the ramparts, browse in the shops or relax in a bar or café. We later reach Dinan where we stay for two nights. The fortified town of Dinan is one of the oldest medieval towns in Brittany and is characterised by cobbled streets, beautiful half-timbered houses and stunning Romanesque and Gothic architecture.

    Meals - Breakfast

  • Day 3 - St. Malo

    Today’s included excursion takes us to St. Malo, a coastal town famous for its fortified walled town, ancient ramparts, granite townhouses, and for the exquisite mansions in the surrounding countryside, which were originally homes of wealthy ship owners. You can enjoy beautiful views across the sea from the town’s ramparts, or visit the Cathedral of St. Vincent of Saragossa, whose spire can be seen for many miles. The cathedral was constructed in many different styles, and here you can see the memorial and the grave of Jacques Cartier, the Breton explorer credited with his voyages to the Americas and Canada.

    Meals - Breakfast

  • Day 4 - Vannes & Carnac

    We leave Dinan and head to the beautiful city of Vannes. This well- preserved walled city is a joy to explore with its narrow winding streets, lined with typical pavement cafés selling local delicacies. From Vannes we head to Carnac, the town is alive with history and has many shops and cafes to explore. We continue to our hotel in Quimper for two nights.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 5 - Quimper & Concarneau

    Spend a leisurely morning in Quimper, with its beautiful medieval quarter, narrow streets lined with half-timbered houses, and St. Corentin Cathedral, reputed to be Brittany’s best example of religious Gothic architecture. Quimper is home to faience pottery which has been produced in the Locmaria district since the 17th century and can be seen at the local faience workshop or the faience museum which houses over 2000 pieces. This afternoon, we offer an optional excursion to Concarneau, a popular fishing port with its ‘ville close’ (walled town) and historic houses decorated with floral displays. The town’s sandy beaches and the Marinarium are also popular local attractions.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 6 - Honfleur

    We leave Brittany and head to the pretty Normandy town of Honfleur, with its many historic houses set around the quays of the Vieux Port, and the beautiful Saint Catherine’s church, constructed completely out of wood by local shipbuilders. Honfleur’s beauty has been represented many times by artists, including Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet. We continue to our overnight hotel in northern France.
