What you'll do

I take you on a road trip for a full day to discover the history and gastronomy of Normandy. Meet at 10:30 am for a private 1.5 hour tour of the Mont Canisy batteries with an exceptional panoramic view of Deauville and the Normandy coast, followed by a visit to Deauville to take the time to observe the details. Picnic basket provided with all that is good to drink and eat in the region. Around 4 p.m., head to the apple trees of the Pays d'Auge for the 1-hour private tour of a family cider estate. At 5.30 p.m., the day will end in joy, bubbles and good humor with the barman in Chief of the Normandy Barrière hotel who will introduce you to the art of cocktails and reveal his personal recipe for Norman Mojito.

At each stage of the day you will meet Frédérick, Mathieu, Marc ... all 3, passionate Normans, knowledgeable in their field. In complete autonomy with your car, roadmap under your arm, all you have to do is follow my instructions and practical sheets.

I have a special program for you so that you can make the most of this timeless day. The watchwords: stories, sharing and authenticity.

Norman, curious and passionate. Fan # 1 of good food, music, resourcefulness and fun. After having worked for several airlines based in the four corners of the world, I decided in 2019 to put an end to this wonderful career to introduce Normandy to all curious amateurs of History (and stories), recipes from family and dating.
Holder of the regional guide card, I am committed to unearthing little-known places and forging links with people.
Isn't it the encounters we make when traveling that leave an unforgettable memory? :)
