Historical & Cultural Visits

World War II History

Family Outings


Mont Saint Michel

Undoubtedly this site is one of the most spectacular jewels of France. Its rich history makes a visit to the Mont St. Michel an unforgettable experience. A guided tour is highly recommended, as this will give an excellent and detailed insight of the historical, religious and ‘powerful’ importance of this venue during the French history. The views of and from the Mont St. Michel are stunning.

Bayeux Tapestry

A visit to the Bayeux Tapestry Museum is a must and impressive. The history and events of the Battle of Hastings and the Norman invasion in 1066 is portrayed on a 270 feet long tapestry. The woven details of this historical event pictured on the embroidery are well preserved, considering its age and are breathtaking. Given that this museum is quite popular and in order to avoid long queues an early start is recommended.

William the Conqueror’s Castle ( Falaise Castle)

This is a real gem and a castle worthy of a day’s visit, this castle dominates the town of Falaise and is very impressive. The castle has ongoing restoration to its walls and one can well picture William being born there and growing up as a child. Another great venue to see and enjoy, the tour is mostly inside and undercover with a different way of showing a castle using art, lights and sound to make this a magical visit.
