→ Weekend in Normandy 1. Pavilion of Gouffern in the Orne

(→ Book Now)

Nestled in the heart of a wild and unspoilt forest, Pavillon de Gouffern is a former hunting relay located in Lower Normandy, in the Orne. It is an ideal place for lovers of nature and its beauty. During a bike ride in the adjoining forest, we fell face to face with a deer.

In the morning when we wake up, we also had the pleasure of seeing several deer grazing the grass of the golf course of the estate. In winter, take a good book to read by the ever-lit fire , or take the time to test the top! In summer, try the golf course or the outdoor pool.

The Pavillon de Gouffern also has a restaurant, where you have feasted with a homemade foie gras and a square of lamb. An ideal solution if you don’t want to go out during the weekend.

For nature lovers, you will love spending a weekend near Bagnoles de l’Orne. Le Manoir du Lys is a magnificent hotel that highlights the mushroom. First with the restaurant’s cuisine, which offers menus around this local ingredient.

In the morning, you can then accompany the chef to pick mushrooms in the forest. In the afternoon, he will deliver his advice during a cooking class with morning picking!

The decor of the hotel is beautiful, as is the place in general. There is also a swimming pool, which is available outdoors for summer and indoors for cooler days.

3. Walk and gastronomy at Clos de Mondetour (→ Book Now)

Also in Normandy, this time we offer you to spend a night at the Clos de Mondetour, a guest room with the most neat decoration in a French style. Without a doubt, we discovered the most good breakfast, served in a magnificent dishes marled according to the discoveries of Aude, the mistress of the place.

In the evening, we recommend the restaurant of L’Orée du Bois, you will be welcomed by Hervé and his wife, who offers delicious Norman cuisine.

With a little luck, Hervé will release his guitar for an improvised beef. This couple is the very example of the warm Norman welcome.

In the morning, you can also walk in the village of Fontaine Sous Jouy . Aude will concoct you an itinerary to discover specifics of this village.

4. At Relai Saint Michel with a view of the Mont-Saint-Michel (→ Book Now)

If like us, the Mont-Saint-Michel makes you dream, then it is an opportunity to plan a weekend around the discovery of this magnificent monument. For the night, you have the choice of sleeping inside the Mount, or outdoors in an establishment with a direct view of the building. We chose the Relai Saint Michel, with a room that offered a dream panorama.

During the weekend, you are advised to visit Mont-Saint-Michel early on Sunday morning . You will be much more calm, and you will be able to attend the Mass given by the 12 monks and sisters who live year-round on the island. Even if you’re not a believer, it’s a very nice time.

We also tested the flight in ULM to observe the monument seen from the sky . An incredible moment we experienced during a tandem flight, each in our ULM (accompanied by the pilot of course).

5. A weekend in Normandy to visit Caen (→ Book Now)

Another weekend idea in Normandy is to visit the city of Caen and start on the historical footsteps of the Second World War. We recommend visiting Caen on Saturdays, as all shops and restaurants are open.

There are some monuments that will be a must for your visit such as the Château Ducal, the Town Hall and the beautiful abbey of the adjoining Men, the Abbey of Women, without forgetting the Saint Sauveur district (with good restaurants!).

In the evening, we recommend the Best Western Hotel “Le Dauphin” for several reasons. The first for its location in the city center, and the second for its SPA! After a day of walking, we loved lounging in the jet pool, sauna and steam room.

The next day we went to visit the Caen Memorial , located 5 minutes by car and which requires two hours of good visit. Then head to the American cemetery then the Pointe du Hoc to observe the abandoned bunkers. Count a good day for this historic getaway, not to mention the discovery of the beaches of disembarkation.

6. A Jacuzzi weekend at Château du Bois de la Lune (→ Book Now)

Last idea, one night in the Bois de la Lune guest house held by Roseline and her husband. The setting is incredibly relaxing, and all rooms are prettier than each other. A nice surprise will await you in the garden greenhouse: a private jacuzzi .

Don’t forget to book your table at the restaurant La Gazette in Evreux. The property is run by Chef Xavier Buzieux, who offers local cuisine. We loved this moment, for the romantic setting and delicious cuisine.

Finally, take the time to stroll around the city from Evreux. We advise you to visit the cathedral and its surroundings and take a stroll along the Iton River (the river that crosses the city). We also had dinner at the restaurant La Vieille Gabelle which is a typical address of Norman charm.

7. Au Vent d’Ouest, SPA hotel in the heart of Le Havre (→ Book Now)

Another place with an equally warm atmosphere, the SPA Hotel Le Vent d’Ouest is a must-see if you plan to visit Le Havre. Between its heathered decoration, spacious rooms and the Nuxe SPA, you are sure to spend an unforgettable and comforting stay in the beautiful city of Le Havre.

Located in the heart of a neighborhood rebuilt by the architect Auguste Perret after the Second World War (opposite the Church of Saint Joseph), the SPA Hotel Le Vent d’Ouest is ideally located for those who like us like to enjoy the city between walking walks, strolls and visits to museums.

And what better than being able to rest at the hotel’s SPA after a good day of walking? With its cosy ambience , colourful furnishings and mottled decor, the hotel exudes a communicative warmth, and you just want to sit on the armchairs and enjoy the moment.

Its unique decoration and delicious cuisine based on local products make this place a unique place with a romantic atmosphere … In every sense of the word!
