Normandy Biking Tour

History Comes Alive

To many, Normandy is all about June 6, 1944, “D-Day”. Although the date is significant, this area is multi-faceted beyond the Allied invasion; there’s the invasion that went the other way, across to England and the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Here, you’ll find colourful, vibrant seafront towns, soaring abbeys and gustatory specialties like the famed Camembert cheese and the sweet, potent Calvados liqueur. Layer on exceptional biking on quiet coastal roads and hedge-lined interior byways, and everything is there for your own Norman conquest.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Its 20+ rooms are tastefully appointed, while the terrace and tea room add a touch of cross-Channel refinement. The location, within the heart of Honfleur and steps from shops and restaurants, is the icing on the cake. View hotel website »
