Your excursion begins with a visit to Honfleur, where you will first enjoy a walking tour. Then, you will drive to the Clos Saint Gatien, a local restaurant in the country, where you will enjoy a traditional Norman luncheon.
As your motor coach meanders through the countryside to Crèvecoeur-en-Auge, you will have an opportunity to witness the lush fields, orchards, dairy farms, manor houses and châteaux that fill this fertile land.
Located in the heart of the scenic Auge region, the Crèvecoeur-en-Auge is surrounded by a double ring of moats. From the 11th century onward, these fortifications made it possible to keep a close watch on the "Chemin du Roy," the major thoroughfare. The château has survived feudal times and has been restored to its original condition. The gatehouse dates from the 16th century and provides access across the outer moat to the 15th-century farmhouse. The 15th-century lodge where the lord of the manor lived is located on a mound surrounded by an inner moat.
After a fascinating day investigating this delightful region, you will return the ship in Honfleur.
Important Notes: As this excursion involves approximately two hours of extensive walking over uneven and cobbled surfaces, it is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. It is recommended that guests dress in warm, layered clothing and wear flat, comfortable shoes. Guests should also bring raingear in case of inclement weather. The order of sights visited may vary.
