Staying in the quiet depths of the Normandy Countryside, you will be barely 2 miles from where one of the most important battles in the European campaign took took place. Through Operation 'Cobra' General Patton made the breakout and started a speedy push eastwards. The Germans were becoming surrounded and found themselves in a 'pocket' with the Allies on virtually all sides

In 4 Days, in an area roughly 7km by 11km, 10,000 German soldiers perished. This was the final Battle of Normandy - the Battle of the Falaise Pocket/Gap, sometimes refered to as Stalingrad in Normandy.
Stand on Hill 262; the 'Gap' through which the 7th Army would attempt escape, except the Poles were already there looking down on both the escaping soldiers and the narrow tract of land that was to earn the name 'The Corridor of Death'.
This was a Battle that, logically, should never have taken place in this region.
Come and learn why it took place. And, how the geography helped dictate the destruction of the German 7th Army.

Generals, Patton, Bradley, & Montgomery early August 1944

Mont Saint Michel

Mont St Michel. Click to enlarge

Click for short Film

  Although Mt Saint Michel is not part of this
5 night/6-day tour itinerary
  it may be included, by prior arrangement.

  It will change the itinerary order and replace the Giverny trip.

  It is too far to go, sensibly tour the Mt and return in a day.
  So we stay overnight.

  This allows us to go into the mediaeval village at night,
when all the tourists have gone, see the Monastry illuminated,
and walk the ramparts.

  There is a night stop-over supplement.


Why not, have the full itinerary plus the Mt St Michel tour
  by adding an extra day.
