This is a beautiful tour and specially tailored for those with an interest in culture, as well as an interest in golf. Your base will be Deauville, just 2 hours outside Paris, synonymous with prestige and sophistication, and known as France’s most glamorous seaside resort. Here there will be lots to amuse you with Deauville’s beaches, shopping, casino and magificent race track. You will stay at the Hotel du Golf Barriere, a deluxe four star hotel overlooking Deauville and the perfect golf resort, as the golf course surrounds the hotel. Deauville is one of the most exclusive golf courses in Normandy.
From here, you will take in a tour of the majestic Chateau de Breuil, one of the region’s most prestigious distilleries where the wonderful Calvados is made (and of course you get to taste some!). You will stop off for some sightseeing in Honfleur and its famous painter’s port – a haven for artists since the beginning of the Impressionist period.
Perhaps the high point of this trip will be the full day guided tour of the D-Day Beaches. Conducted by a professional guide, here the memorials pay tribute to the memory of 9,387 soldiers killed during the Normandy Campaign of WW2. The Visitor Centre pays homage to the courage and competence shown during Operation Overlord and to the sacrifice of those who are now resting here. Unmissable.
Your final day will be spent on the spectacular cliffs of the Etretat golf course. This will be a challenging but satisfying end to your wonderful French sojourn.
