Head on a picturesque Normandy self-drive getaway to two gorgeous towns, including breakfast, spa access, a distillery visit and ferry crossing travel

Honfleur

Positioned on the Seine Bay in Normandy, Honfleur is a picturesque Norman port featured in dozens of famous Impressionist paintings, notably those of famous son Boudin. It’s known for its luminous light, sweeping skies and open beaches, and is packed with art galleries. As part of your stay, you'll enjoy a visit to the Distillerie de Drouin, located in Coudray-Rabut just a 20-minute drive inland. You’ll discover Normandy's finest, award-winning Calvados brandy, made with passion and love by three generations of the Drouin family.

Sitting pretty just outside the elegant town of Deauville, Domaine de Villers & Spa (holder of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence) makes a strong impression all of its own. Overlooking expansive grounds, sitting just a little back from the beach, this is a place that invites rest and relaxation.

Deauville

Deauville has long been favoured as an upscale destination and is best known for Les Planches – a seemingly endless boardwalk which runs behind its long sweep of sandy beach. It’s also home to chic boutiques, elegant Belle Epoque villas and half-timbered buildings. Further afield, must-sees in the region include the Bayeux Tapestry and Mont St Michel. When you’re not trying your luck at the roulette tables, simply drink in sea breezes as you take a gentle stroll along the sandy shores.

For an away-from-it-all escape oozing history and refinement, Hotel Le Manoir de la Poterie & Spa has you covered. Dating back to the 16th-century, a stay at this charming pad feels a little like stepping back in time, with original features laced throughout the property and a recent refurbishment bringing the interiors bang up to date.
