HOLYDAYS IN NORMANDY

We left home at 9 am and had our first stop after two hours. In Belgium the highways are free, but not in France, so I had set my GPS on toll free roads.



I had a coffee and Charlie water and some dry food, stretched our legs and then continued driving through beautiful landscapes on large roads with nearly no traffic at all. While the highways were probably full !



We even found a nice little picnic place and ate our sandwiches.

At 4 pm we already had arrived in Houlgate. (see post below) The apartments are on a hill with a wonderful view on the sea and the little town.



We checked in and were very satisfied with our apartment. It has everything we needed. Charlie felt home immediately. He choose his place on the terrace and we could sleep without problem the French doors open, nobody would dare to come in !

The views are so beautiful !






These pictures I have taken from our terrace



There is also a heated swimming pool.

We were quite tired but we also were hungry, so we drove downtown and took the first restaurant fortunately we were lucky,  we had an excellent supper.

Beautiful views but are you sure Charlie is such a fierce guard dog that you can sleep with the doors open? And what about flies and insects? he can't stop those. And a 2am start!
Don't mind me I am just being a bit envious of what is a great holiday.

Terrific photos and what a great holiday. Surely you mean you left at 2pm, not 2am?

What a wonderful holiday you ate having! The photos are beautiful. Such scenic views. Are the apartments expensive?

Beautiful views -- I'm sorry about the rain (in your two later posts -- I am catching up), but at least it is a lovely old historic town to look around in if you can't go to the beach.
