Always on the lookout for contrast, light and atmosphere, painters never choose an area by chance – and these places tend to also be great places for holidays, places to wind down and relax. It wasn't just a few painters who fell in love with Normandy, but an entire movement. From the grey and blue hues of the English Channel to the ever-changing skies, the white chalk cliffs of Etretat, the traditional ochre cob of the houses and their abundant flower arrangements, the Côte d'Albâtre is far more colourful than one imagines. The Impressionists had stumbled upon a never-ending source of inspiration. It's an inspiration as well for this cycling tour: a superb mix of quiet coastal backroads, interspersed with charming fishing ports and small villages, the cliffs of Etretat, but also the wonderful Fécamp and Veulettes-sur-Mer. The price of this tour includes 2 or 3 nights in guesthouses and 2* or 3* hotels in double rooms with en-suite facilities, 2 or 3 breakfasts, daily baggage transfers, a carefully designed itinerary, navigation app for smartphones, a detailed roadbook including maps (digital format) and GPS tracks.
