Normandy, Brittany & Loire Valley

Echoes of historic struggles can be experienced right across Normandy – from the Norman conquest woven into the tapestry at Bayeux, to the dramatic D-Day landings of 1944. Travel onto Brittany with its ancient walled cities and rugged geography and then to the Loire, made so famous as the playground of royalty.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a compact size car for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.

Day 1: Paris – Giverny – Rouen – Bayeux (263km)
Journey north to the pretty village of Giverny to visit Monet’s home and gardens that inspired the artist. Wander through Rouen’s historic quarters packed with half-timbered houses and tempting shops and restaurants. Day 2: Bayeux – Honfleur – Bayeux (142km)
Enjoy a relaxing day in the well preserved and very picturesque town of Honfleur. A stop in Caen in one direction is a must.
Day 3: Bayeux – Landing Beaches – Bayeux (34km)
Discover the beaches of Normandy and conjure up the scenario that began here on D-Day, 6 June, 1944. The placid beaches are still best known by their wartime code names, such as Omaha, Utah and Juno. Monuments are placed along the 60 mile stretch of sand, and there are many war museums.
Day 4: Bayeux – St Malo (160km)
Stroll along St Malo’s ramparts and see the stunning cathedral. Visit the picturesque monastic island of Mont Saint-Michel, take a tour of the famous Abbey and then walk around the narrow streets on the base of the rock, with its jumble of medieval houses.
Day 5: St Malo – Angers – Tours (328km)
Wander through the lively university town of Angers. It’s the gateway to the Loire Valley and is easy to get around with a pedestrianised old town with several great places to eat.
Day 6: Loire Valley
Discover the charm and beauty of the Château region. Chenonceau spans the water’s flow, while Azay-le-Rideau sits like a tiny jewel in the centre of its own moat.

Head back to Paris or continue over to Alsace or down to Burgundy
