Rouen & Monet’s Garden Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd May
Saturday. Enjoy Rouen or join us on the excursion to Giverny and Monet’s House & Garden (admission included). Facing Monet’s House and studio, the Clos Normandy flower garden is a dazzling display of colour. See the water garden, Japanese Bridge and water Lillie that so inspired the painter.
Sunday. We start or return trip with a visit to Fecamp and an option visit to the Benedictine Palace and Distillery. In 1863, Alexander Le Grand, a wine and liquor wholesaler, found a health elixir formula which was invented in the 16th century by a Benedictine monk in the Fecamp abbey. He decided to market the liqueur under the Benedictine brand. In addition, the foundation began the construction of a Gothic and Renaissance palace with the architect Camille Albert. The distillery and the museum are located in this building.
With a final stop at the Shuttle Terminal for a few more French tax paid bargains we will board our train and return home after a wonderful weekend in France!
