This is the third and final post on Normandy. In the first post, I told you more about gardens in Normandy, in the second post, I took you to the D-day beaches and this third post is about the harbour towns of Deauville, Trouville and Honfleur.

It is possible to visit these 3 towns in just one day as we did, but then you’ll just have time to get an overall feel and do some sightseeing… and you better start quite early ! Read about our trip to these harbour towns!

Last week we went to Normandy. We only went for 5 days which means we will have to go back one fine day as there are so many things to see and do in this part of France… cozy villages and harbor towns, beautiful gardens, grand chateaus, cities full of history and culture, D-day beaches, rugged coastline and so much more ! In the next few tips ‘n trips posts, you can read more about what we visited on our trip to La Douce France.

Today I will tell you a bit more about 2 gardens we visited : Giverny and Les Jardins du Pays d’Auge. Read more about the gardens we visited in Normandy!
