R10 French WOTY Northern France - 5th to 9th September 2019

This is R10's first attempt at an overseas trip for several years - if you like French food, picturesque villages, historic ports and scenic drives, all in great company, this is the short break for you!
 
Leaving Eurotunnel, we will head south, stopping in Eu, a very historical town with an impressive abbey for lunch.  If we haven't spent too much time indulging, we will follow the coast road to Étretat and then on to our base at Honfleur.  Hotels are yet to be considered, although a straightforward practical choice might be Hotel Mercure which has been used happily by R20 on other occasions.
 
Day two will take the form of a scenic drive encompassing part of the Cider Route, a visit to Beuvron-en-Auge, a traditional village with wood-framed houses, then north to the "Gold Landing" beach.  We will return across Pegasus bridge and back along the coast road.  This will give your Porsche a good workout, and you a chance to see a bit of everything.
 
Day three gives you the opportunity to explore Honfleur's Saturday market and more of the town if you wish.  It's surrounded by things to see and do, so you can please yourself and choose your own options.  Could that be Monet's Garden at Giverny, the Bayeux Tapestry, Deauville and Trouville, a journey on the Suisse Normandie Route, or further exploration of the Landing Beaches or Cider Route?  Or you could just chill out in the hotel or around town!
 
Day four sees a return up the coast with a chance to visit the spa town of Le Touquet to soak up the relaxed atmosphere before the thrilling drive across the "caps", on to the Tunnel, and back to Blighty.
 
September seems a long way off, but it needs to go firmly in the diary now, and it would be good to have your commitment early.  As ever, please note your intentions on this thread, and email mark.grimwood1@btinternet.com  to confirm.  More details and hotel options will follow in due course.
 
Bonnes vacances!
Mark

    Yes, please include us for this trip.
    Honfleur is a short hop down into France and a great place to stay.

    looking forward to the trip I have obtained an International driving licence for France . No waiting ,just go to a post office with a photo ,driving licence and passport and they can issue there and then £5-95. Press speculation about delays are a usual exaggerated.  You could also need a Green cars if all goes badly but again just ask your insurance company

    Hi Mark
     
    Do you have any more information regarding this trip as early September brings out the OAPs and folks that don't have to holiday in school holiday time.  As a result the peak train times bookings get full several months earlier?

    Hi everyone,
     
    I have not had the opportunity to develop this trip further yet, but will be on the case next week.  Meanwhile, could we perhaps have a group huddle at today's R10 meet to chat about travel and accommodation options.
     
    Many thanks.

    Hi everyone,
     
    Just a reminder of the forthcoming WOTY to Honfleur France for 4 nights from 5th September. 
     
    Those of us confirmed are all booked in and paid for at the Hotel Mercure, where rooms are still available. 
     
    If you have been delaying your decision as to whether or not to go, now is probably your last chance to come along. Look at the opening post on this thread to see the itinerary and what you will be missing if you don’t join the party!
     
    Just let me know on this thread and I can help you with the booking.....
     
    Cheers. 
    Mark

    Sounds like a great trip and we are sorry we couldn't make it this year; prior trip booked. However we would be interested next year. If France again or Belgium there are certainly some very good car club friendly hotels in the area that we have stayed at before with safe parking.
