Food and drink
Mouth-watering regional delights from cheeses, biscuits and ice cream to a unique blend of Calvados are waiting​​​​​ ​​​​​to tempt the palate of the discerning holiday-maker. French food and wine producers are rightly proud of their distinctive, high-quality products and many of them offer conducted tours of their factories with free tastings at the end. All Normandy ’s weekly markets have stalls selling local and regional produce which also features on the menus of restaurants of every kind from bistros to a Michelin Star establishment.  
Our ​​​resident wine educator also offers bespoke food and wine matching and tutored wine-tasting sessions.
Ancient times
Historical facts from medieval times blend almost seamlessly with ancient ​​myths and legends in Normandy.

    Visit the remains of Eleanor of Aquitaine’s castle or take an enchanting walk through mystical woods; dare to  picnic alongside the “Devil’s Table” or see the refuge of last practising witches in France!
