We’ll pick you up at your place & head in a private minivan to Rouen, a beautiful medieval city. In Rouen, you’ll enjoy a guided visit through charming old streets, where you’ll discover Tudor style timber houses, monuments, as the Cathedral, the big clock & typical market places. During the walk, I’ll tell you some history of Joan of Arc, Richard the Lion’s Heart & famous impressionists painters & Parisian writers! Then, we'll go in a typical grocery to taste some of the famous Normandy cheeses and ciders! After this overview of Normandy culture, we'll drive to Veules-les-Roses, one of the most charming Normandy villages by the beach. Here, we’ll enjoy a gourmet lunch paired with cider. Then, we’ll go for a walk along the smallest river that exists in France, we’ll reach the heart of the village & admire the amazing houses made up of bricks, very similar to the English properties. We'll end this Normandy escape by the highlight of the day : the beach and the incredible Normandy cliffs that inspired so many writers & painters! We'll take time to enjoy the beautiful landscape, refresh our mind with Ocean air and memories before driving back to Paris. Dday beaches & national cemetery are unfortunately to far to make it in a day, but we’ll see some bunkers and talk about WWII as the whole Normandy was occupied by the German! Dates are flexible for private group! PM me!
I am the founder of Hasta agency which helps travelers to explore France with a new perspective, apart from the famous monuments and touristic places. Exploring unknown places, tasting typical food and beverage, meeting locals is Hasta's spirit. Born and raised in Normandy and living in Paris since 10 years now, I always took my friends, from all over the world, on a trip to my childhood area. When I created Hasta, it was obvious for me to create a getaway from Paris to Normandy, to show people how beautiful this place is, between medieval cities, charming villages and amazing landscape by the beach. Perfectly knowing the Normandy gastronomy, I work with plenty of local farmers, fishermen and grocers that provide the best typical food and beverage to taste.
