Itinerary idea in detail

Using your own vehicle for self-drive touring

  • Departing from Portsmouth, you’ll board your overnight ferry set for Saint-Malo.

  • Arriving in Saint-Malo, you’ll drive to your hotel to spend one night. Occupy the afternoon wandering Saint-Malo’s ramparts and getting to know the city on your own.

  • Departing Saint-Malo this morning, you’ll drive to Mont Saint-Michel, the fortified island-village that dates as far back as 708 AD and was reputedly visited by such historical giants as William the Conqueror. After your visit, drive on to Bayeux, where you’ll spend two nights.

  • This morning, your driver-guide will meet you at your hotel for a full day touring the British D-Day landing sites, including Gold and Sword beaches.

  • Leave Bayeux this morning and drive east toward Honfleur, where you’ll spend one night. En route, you’ll stop at the Calvados Experience for an immersive history of the regionally beloved drink followed by a tasting. The afternoon is free to explore Honfleur at your leisure.

  • Drive back to Caen for your return ferry to England.
