A particularly international month of June for Normandy Classic Tour commented rides. Thus, Americans, Australians, Canadians, British, Kuwaiti and Irish have discovered the secrets of the 'Côte de Nacre' aboard the Citroën Dyane. French Nationals are not left out either with many passengers.

Meeting with the Architects Hector Guimard, François Rouvray, Aumasson and René Lalique
The Pearl Coast still has little treasures of Art Nouveau, this architectural
style, very fashionable in the nineteenth century.
Although only a few traces of Art Nouveau remain in Normandy, especially because of the destruction during the Liberation, some nuggets still remain. Aesthetics and curved lines are to be discovered during our ride.
All forms participate in the ornamentation up to the smallest details.
Iron, steel and cast iron: the metal is worked in ribbon, twisted and volute and is combined with the stone and even the pebbles of the seaside for some constructions. Cast iron has the advantage of being able to mold. It was used for window and balcony railings by Hector Guimard for the realization of his subway station entrances in Paris with very personal motives. François Rouvray, architect in Caen, his disciple, have to his credit some beautiful constructions. As for Aumasson, he left us a magnificent villa in Saint-Aubin-sur-mer.

This idea of the tour in an old car took shape on the basis of two different tours:
One is centered on the D-day beaches (Sword beach), the second one offers an unusual visit of the Pearl Coast. I propose a 3 hours ride from Ouistreham in the afternoon. The car is a four seats and three adult passengers can take place. I expect you between May and October.
