Hi Michael
We liked the town of
Putanges-Pont-Écrepin, Normandy

and it's square of Place de L Hôtel de ville

nice little town.

Also visit Pegasus bridge and café Gondrée , the owner of the cafe is a direct decendant of the owners in the 2nd world war. (read this)

If you want to visite WW II sits, it is interesting, but your wife may be bored.
Omaha, Utah beaches........
Deauville is beautifull, Trouville near and less expensive for restaurant, Honfleur beatufull too

Try Aromanche and the D Day exhibition. Lunch by the harbour at Honfleur or there's always the Bayeau tapestry
We have stayed at Les Manoir De Tourgeville. Excellent and safe parking

You could check out the other saint Michael's Mount. It"s a tourist trap. It would nice place but too many people.

the casino in Deauville is horrendous, as well as the Normandy hotel (Barriere group)
les Vapeurs in Trouville is an institution - but book for dinner especially friday/saturday

if your wife is a moscovite, the shopping in Deauville should please her

Great to have input from our French friends but shopping is definitely out!!

I am in Deauville in July with the Bentley and my wife .But in May I am flying down to Monaco for the Historique Grand Prix with the lads for a spot of male bonding. We stay in Villefranche sur Mare and travel in daily by train.

As Somerset Maugham said "Monaco is a sunny place for shady people!"

Hi and thanks for your Help
So the trip we land on Thursday at 6 am and will make are way to Deauville and Honfleur for lunch Then off to Lisieux to the Basilica and then on to the first night at a Auberge De La pomme De Pin in Senonches will put some Photo's up and try to work out how to ad a video from the car

Day 2
we will be spending the day Touring the Chateaux Nearby and then back to the Auberge for the evening meal

Day 3
we will be driving in the Maine Natural Park over to Cancale for lunch we will be giving Mount St Michael a miss as we have been there about 4 times and the time is short so off up the cost to Auberge La Cocotte Gourmande in Carantilly

Day 4

Bayeux Tapestry ( we have Been Before but didn't get to see the Tapestry) so spend the day there and then of to the Boat at Cherbourg for tee 1800 Boat Home
The reason for the Auberge we have chosen is there supposed to be good for food will let you all know

Thanks for your help Michael
