Hello Christophe, I want to thank you for the excellent service and attention to my transfer in Paris on February 20. You confirmation and itinerary was professional and clear. The driver was absolutely on time, courteous and the vehicle was very luxurious. As a woman travelling solo I felt very safe and cared for. Again, I thank you and your staff for organizing my first experience with Decouvertes. I will feel confident utilizing your services in the future.

Hi Celine. First, I have been meaning to write you and tell that the Black/Sandquists had a wonderful time in Paris/Normandy over the holidays. Ms. Sandquist also said they were happy that they had to rent the car (instead of taking the train) so they had time to stop in Rouen on the way back.

Decouvertes, helps again! I have a high-touch needing family/friends trip for summer 2020 to Paris and Inelsi at Decouvertes has once again helped me look amazing in my clients eye. We had some specific experiences that were needed and she hit it out of the park. My client gushes every time we talk about the dynamite experience that we have pulled together for them. THANK YOU INELSI and the Decouvertes team!!

Beach towels and picnic under the arm, we leave for a full day on this sandbank.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen
On

Located in the heart of the city, the Notre-Dame de Rouen Cathedral is a monument where you can read all the evolution of Gothic art.


More Pictures...

The construction of the building began in the middle of the 12th century, on the site of the Romanesque cathedral, whose crypt has been preserved. A hundred years later it was completed, but it was remodelled and completed in the following centuries.
The façade thus represents a precious testimony to the evolution of Gothic art from the mid-12th century to the early 16th century. The pretty lantern tower received in the nineteenth century a cast iron spire that rises to 151 meters!
The Cathedral houses in the ambulatory some of the graves of the former Dukes of Normandy, such as that of Rollon, the founder of the duchy, and that of Richard the Lionheart, who loved the city so much and had his heart placed in the crypt after his death. The entire history of the stained glass window from the 13th century to the present day can be read inside the church.


Chapelle Notre Dame de Bonsecours

Chapelle Notre Dame de Bonsecours
On February 24, 2020

Overlooking the eastern cliff of the town like a lighthouse, the church of Notre Dame de Bonsecours was built in 1876 and belonged to the Société de secours mutuel at the time. The Dieppois had in fact committed themselves to building a place of worship dedicated to sailors when the Calvary of the pier was inaugurated sixteen years earlier.

Built in brick and decorated with coloured glazed bricks highlighting the bays and forming a frieze around the building, the church looks like a small reliquary placed on the cliff. Its very massive western facade with its bell tower framed by two turrets topped by conical-roofed bell towers, contrasts with the lighter aspect of the nave and chevet, as if bristling with pointed gables.
Its architecture, combining Romanesque (semicircular bays, blind arcade decorations, massive porch bell tower), Byzantine (polychrome decorations) and Oriental (conical bell towers) elements, is characteristic of the end of the 19th century. Inside, the church, also decorated with stained glass windows and statues, receives on its walls the ex-voto and commemorative plaques of the families who came to recollect or to flower the memory of their loved ones.

Nestling in the vast Seine estuary, in the heart of the small town with its beautiful 17th and 18th century slate-roofed houses, the port of Honfleur is bustling with activity in all seasons.

 

Each of its three basins is dedicated to one of the city's activities. The oldest, the Vieux Bassin, is home to Honfleur's marina, with its 80 berths, 30 of which are dedicated to visitors. The latter also houses the Cercle Nautique, which organises numerous events throughout the year, including the Fête des Marins. Your visit to the old port of Honfleur will continue with a visit to the fishing port. Its fleet of about forty units specialises in shrimp and scallop fishing. Finally, the history of this port wouldn't be complete without a look at the river port which welcomes all the cruise ships on the Seine.

Wind rustling in the poplars, ducks and swans among the gulls. Turning one's moorings in Ouistreham means stopping in a marina with a bucolic atmosphere. The port of call is calm, spacious and well equipped. It is reached by crossing ferries and local fishermen. Dug along the canal leading to Caen, a stone's throw from the famous Pegasus Bridge, the port is a good starting point to discover the city of William the Conqueror, the beaches and casinos of the Nacre coast, or the birds of the Bay of Sallenelles.

 

The Port of Ouistreham, it is also its fish market, its lighthouse which offers one of the most beautiful panoramas on the sea and its night strolls. Set off to meet this place that never sleeps!
