à partir deadmin
mardi 16 février 2016

On this complete, full‐day tour, you will discover the Landing Beaches of Normandy where on the 6th of June 1944, the Allied forces landed on the coast of Lower Normandy to start the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. With your licensed guide, you will re-live the principal events and battles of the Longest Day. Your Licensed English Speaking Guide will pick you up from your hotel in Paris at 7.00 am in a deluxe private vehicle and you will depart immediately to the wonderful region of Normandy. Upon your arrival, you will be given an introduction by your private guide to the battle of Normandy. Enjoy a quick stop half‐way for coffee and croissants.

You will begin your day in Pointe du Hoc, a strategic position for the Germans overlooking the English Channel just between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. Your guide will explain to you how the US Second Ranger Battalion, under the command of Colonel James Rudder, successfully assaulted Pointe du Hoc after scaling the cliffs. You will then enjoy the scenery whilst driving along Omaha Beach before reaching one of the highlights of the day: The American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer where 9387 American soldiers are buried. During your private visit, your guide will show you famous headstones such as, Theodore Roosevelt Jr who received the medal of honour, and The Niland Brothers who inspired Steven Spielberg’s film, Saving Private Ryan, with the appropriate explanations. After this emotional walk through the cemetery, you will have the opportunity to view remarkable films and documentaries about the Normandy operations in the Visitor Centre.

Following this, you will have a lunch (not included) in a traditional restaurant in Port en Bessin, a small fishing-port village, situated between Omaha Beach and Gold Beach. Enjoy some of the best specialities of Normandy region: fresh sea‐food, Camembert cheese with some great local cider. BON APPETIT!!! After this delicious lunch, you will discover another impressive site of the Second World War: The German Battery of Longues-sur-Mer, part of Germany’s Atlantic Wall coastal fortifications with the four 155mm guns still intact.

At the conclusion of your tour, you will visit the beautiful town of Arromanches where the massive artificial harbour built by the Allies still remains. If time permits, enjoy a cider and calvados tasting in a small local farm near Arromanches before heading back to Paris in the late afternoon, where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 7.00pm.

    Отличная квартира. Третий округ, в котором находятся апартаменты, очень удобен для посещения достопримечательностей пешком. В квартире есть все необходимое для отдыха после прогулок, напротив подъезда кафе со свежими круасанами на завтрак, за углом прачечная, рядом метро и много автобусов. В общем, отличный вариант для большой семьи за приемлемые деньги! Спасибо! Moscow, Russia, September 2013

    Nadia was the perfect host - welcomed us warmly upon arrival, offered drinks and wine and even showed us to a market nearby for dinner. The penthouse was everything one could ask for - Parisian, cosy, clean and fully equipped with everything one needs. We loved the terrace and spent time each morning there.

    This studio in the Marais neighborhood was an amazing value. While small, it had everything we needed and was easy to access. The neighborhood was very fun and close to the metro, Notre Dame, and other Paris attractions. It is located in a quiet courtyard off the street.

    This studio in the Marais neighborhood was an amazing value. While small, it had everything we needed and was easy to access. The neighborhood was very fun and close to the metro, Notre Dame, and other Paris attractions. It is located in a quiet courtyard off the street. The only downside is that you can hear everything in the hallway outside of the door, but the building has only a few other tenants so we were not disturbed at night. Virginie was available by phone and accommodated our check in schedule with a key drop box. We were thrilled to be in the heart of Paris for such an affordable price.

    don't think words can express how amazing our stay at this apartment was. I had been living in Paris for a few months and was going to be visited by my family so I wanted to get a larger apartment that would be more 'home-like' for their stay. I knew the area this apartment was located in - its a quiet, residential area that is a 5 minute walk from both a grocery store and a metro stop, with bakeries located everywhere! In fact, one is located right down the street at the corner - you have no excuse not to have baguettes! Communication was wonderful and we were met at the apartment and shown the space. The apartment itself is absolutely gorgeous - from the layout to the decoration, it instantly makes you feel at home and comfortable. In fact the apartment may be a little too nice as I found it hard to convince my family to leave it. They were content to cook in the kitchen and have meals on the terrace or the sunroom. Our whole family would gather around the terrace every morning and every evening. It is an absolutely amazing space and unlike any other I've seen in Paris. We had many Parisian friends and relatives over and not one of them left without commenting at the beauty of the apartment and the uniqueness of the terrace. The apartment is located about 15 minute metro ride from what I consider to be the center of Paris (where it is the most lively). I considered getting an apartment closer to that area, but I am glad we decided on somewhere more quiet. It is nice to be able to get away from the crowds and noise and return home to a quiet and safe area....
