Pont Audemer                                    Friday 21 to Sunday 23 April

Situated on the River Risle this charming little town is often referred to as Normandy's Venice. With its canals and half-timbered houses, some of which date back to the middle ages, this is a wonderful little area to explore and relax for the weekend. A perfect location from which to explore some of the beautiful little fishing villages such as Honfleur, only a 30 minute drive away, or head inland and a fifty minute drive will take you to Giverny where you can visit the garden and house of Claude Monet.

 

Friday

Depart on the 09:30 Eurotunnel. After around an hour of driving we will stop for lunch. a Further two and a half hours takes us to this beautiful 4* Chateau situated on its own private island. With an indoor and outdoor swimming pool plus bar there is lots to do before dinner.

 

 

Saturday

A short drive and you are in the picture postcard fishing port of Honfleur. This is one of our favourite places on the Normandy coast. With its wonderful cobbled streets, art galleries and cafes around the harbour, it's easy to spend the whole day wandering round, stopping for a drink, having a bite to eat and watching the world go by.

Alternatively head inland for around fifty minutes and you arrive at Monet's garden, the inspiration for many of his paintings. The garden and ponds are a riot of colours. The Japanese bridge covered in Wisteria, the Weeping Willows, the Water Lilies, all are a photographers dream. Finish off with a tour of his house then time to head back for dinner.

Sunday

A short drive or a twenty minute walk will take you from the hotel to the centre of Pont Audemer. You will have plenty of time to enjoy this wonderful little town with its cobbled streets, canals and half- timbered houses dating back to medieval times.

Departure from the Chateau will be around 15:00 ample time to return to the tunnel and catch the 19:00 crossing back to the UK. Arrival back in the UK will be around 18:30 local time.
