My Normandy is such a beautiful place

Its historical heritage, the coast, and its proximity to Paris, Lille, and Brussels and the cliffs of Étretat make it a highly sought-after destination, ideal for a weekend or holidays full of culture and nature, sporting opportunities and leisure activities.

ACTIVITIES CLOSE TO THE HOTEL

 

TOURISM

In Fécamp, close by the 3* Hotel Grand Pavois

The Bénédictine Palace, built in the 19th century, reveals audacious architectural beauty that unites neo-gothic and neo-renaissance styles. Today, it houses the Bénédictine distillery and aging cellars. But the palace, which features magnificent pieces of art from centuries past, also houses a contemporary art gallery and temporary exhibitions. Don’t miss workshops open to visitors: cocktails, distillation discovery, the olfactory experience of perfumes and aromas (for a fee, reservations required).

The Fishing Museum is open to visitors, starting from the belvedere, and it shares the adventure of fishermen who took to the seas to seek prized cod in the icy waters off Newfoundland. The visit includes collections of fine arts, as well as collections of Norman armour, costumes, and jewelry.

The Abbatial Church of the Holy Trinity and its 127 metres of gothic architecture house an exceptionally magnificent astronomical clock, which also tracks the tides, dating from 1667.

Cap Fagnet, which offers an exceptional panorama of the great oceanic expanses, was part of the Atlantic Wall during World War II.

St. Étienne church is a patchwork of architectural styles, from Renaissance to neo-gothic. Stroll by the choir and view spectacular 19th century paintings.

The Chocolate Museum, with its Discover Chocolate workshop, will delight the chocolate lover in all of us and share the secrets of how the cacao bean becomes a beloved chocolate bar.
