Spend a night in Mont Saint Michel

You will have the entire afternoon and evening to explore this picturesque Norman village at your leisure. An audio guide will help you learn more about the Mont and its Abbey. As one of the most visited sites in France and a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, Mont-Saint-Michel is a must for any trip to France to learn more about its history. You will be able to admire this magical place both during the day and at night. You will climb through picturesque alleyways up to the top of the Mont, dominated by its famous Benedictine abbey. Dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michael, this abbey dates from the 8th century and houses a superb cloister and an impressive refectory where the monks used to eat their meals in silence.

After you leave the abbey, be sure to stroll through the streets and along the ramparts, enjoying the incredible panoramic views of the bay. Your jaw will drop when you see the expanse of sand that surrounds the rock. You may also use this time to sample some of the specialties of the Mont (the famous Breton crêpes, for example) and visit the souvenir shops.

Later, you can dine wherever you choose and take in the sunset before spending a restful night in this ancient and mythical place. 

DAY 2: Granville and Château du Breuil

You will meet the group at the hotel at 8:15 am for a traditional French breakfast before getting on the road for Granville around 9:30 am.

After a little over 30 minutes on the bus, you will arrive, ready to follow the footsteps of Christian Dior through his home town. You will visit the Musée Christian Dior, with its shops and gardens. This was the fashion designer's villa, which was then transformed into a monument to his memory. Our driver-guide will lead you on an hour-long guided walking tour of the town before getting back on the road.


Visit of Christian Dior's house in Granville

You will then go to have lunch in a French restaurant, La Table de Louis (or similar), which offers a superb panoramic view of the sea and the casino.

After another 45 minutes or so on the bus, you will arrive at the Château du Breuil (or similar), which dates from the 16th century, to visit its distillery. In the past, the Château produced linen, then cheese, before becoming a cider works in the 20th century, and they have been distilling Calvados there for the last 50 years. You will visit the magnificent grounds of the Château before enjoying a cider and Calvados tasting.
