If you arrive in the morning, feel free to indulge in déjeuner at the hotel restaurant or ask your Adventure Guides for lunch recommendations.

Château de Versailles

Our local expert leads you on a privately guided tour of the opulent Palace of Versailles.

Claude Monet's Home and Gardens

Visit the home of this great Impressionist painter and discover its tranquil gardens bursting with vibrant blossoms and luxurious, leafy trees.

Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

Accommodation: Royal Barrière

Breakfast and Coach Trip

Fuel up on a satisfying breakfast at the hotel before boarding the coach for a trip to awe-inspiring, unforgettable Mont Saint-Michel.

Mont Saint-Michel

The silhouette of this formidable island fortress looms on the horizon as your coach approaches. Surrounded by a venerable town, this medieval Benedictine abbey was built in honor of the Archangel Michael who, according to medieval legend, will slay the dragon at the Apocalypse. With a local guide, explore rooms such as the ancient scriptorium, ossuary, chapel and crypt. Feel the island's enchantment as you wander down winding cobblestone streets on your own trek through town.

Lunch at La Mère Poulard

The rhythmical beating of eggs in copper mixing bowls can be heard down the street, beckoning hungry visitors to try one of their world-famous omelets! Feast on an enormous, fluffy omelet and other regional favorites at this quaint, yet historic, restaurant.

Mont Saint-Michel On Your Own

Spend time wandering the rambling cobblestone streets to discover shops and curiosities galore or visit the cloisters for their vertiginous views.

Afternoon on Your Own in Deauville

Indulge your inner boulevardier as you stroll past romantic Belle Époque villas on the beachfront boardwalk of this suave seaside resort.
