Description

Fecamp is situated between cliffs and has a medium sized pleasure boats harbor and a fishing harbor. There are several shopping streets, museums, restaurants and a cathedral.

Fecamp is the home of the Benedictine liquor which is still made there. There are several large German bunker complexes in the cliffs.

Then continue with a visit of Honfleur

A visit to Honfleur is in itself a complete history lesson, from the 100 years’ war, through the voyages of discovery to the New World during the 17th century to the art of the impressionists.

As a defence against invasion by the English the town was walled and fortified during the second half of the 14th century. You can still go through the old “Caen Gate”, the last remaining piece of the original fortifications, most of which were demolished as the town and port were being expanded in the 17th century. In the medieval part of the town, known as the “Quartier de l’Enclos”, you can see the “Rue de la Ville”, the old main commercial and trading street in the town, still showing its medieval architecture and buildings from a bygone era, such as the old salt store.

making your way to the Eglise Saint Etienne, dating from the 14th century, making it the oldest church in the town. On the other side of the “Caen Gate” and “La Lieutenance” rises the Eglise Sainte Catherine, the largest wooden church in France, built by the ship carpenters of Honfleur shortly after the 100 years’ war. You can see that the bell tower of the church was put, rather unusually, on the top of the bell ringer’s house. Honfleur is also a favourite retreat for painters who come to paint the harbour and the colourful 17th century houses surrounding Sainte Catherine’s Quay, the same images that can be seen in the paintings of Claude Monet or his friend and mentor, Eugene Boudin.

Our lifeline in Paris

By: NickandJenny


Reviewed on: 09 Aug 2016

Both of our airport drivers were excellent, and it was so reassuring knowing that they were there to pick us up and drop us off. Giverny was gorgeous, and our tour guide Paul really made the experience memorable. Our contact Edwige confirmed everything and made sure we were taken care of during our trip.

There were a lot of moving parts in our trip, that started in Paris, went through Reims and Champagne, to Strasbourg and Alsace, to Annecy and then Geneva. W arranged for terrific guides, one more knowledgeable and interesting after the next. The drivers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful cooking class in Alsace. Just a perfectly arranged trip.

Beautiful Day In the Rhone Valley

By: Jessica L


Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

I had an incredible day with Laurent in the Northern Rhone Valley. I have always wanted to see the vineyards of Cote Rotie and Condrieu. Laurent was so knowledgable about not only the wine regions, but also the food, history, and architecture of the region. His hospitality was also very genuine as I could tell he was very concerned about my personal expectations and goals of the tour. I learned so much in one day that I now have to go back to do more exploration of the things I wasn't able to read about on-line when doing some studying prior to my trip. Laurent completely exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend his tour services to anyone looking to explore this region of France.

Champagne Tour

Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2017

While visiting Paris, we decided to take a day trip to Champagne. W Travel France provided the transportation and itinerary. We could not have spent a more enjoyable day in Champagne. Our guide arranged for visits to two Champagne houses (one small and one large) for tastings and lunch at a local brasserie, all the while educating us on the history of the region. Very well done!
