French Rendezvous, 6th-10th July 2018

Princess Motor Yacht Sales is inviting yacht owners to join our cruise from the Hamble to the shores of Normandy.  This five day cruise is a chance to explore the picturesque coastline of Northern France and venture further afield in the company of fellow Princess owners.

The cruise will set out from Swanwick Marina, where our experienced skipper and team will guide owners across the English Channel to rendezvous in Cherbourg – our first destination.

This well-known port town offers a well-equipped marina and a host of restaurants and shops to explore. A welcome drinks reception and first night meal are all arranged for you, ahead of a day at leisure to just relax and soak up the unique atmosphere of this bustling French town.

Stage two of our journey will take us to the beautiful and historic town of Honfleur.  The town is renowned for the unique tall buildings that flank the pretty harbour, and there are cafes and restaurants aplenty.  Guests are welcome to join a short walking tour of the town where they can discover more about its history, and what makes Honfleur so special.  The old town is a maze of narrow lanes, in which there are a host of boutique shops, art galleries, and wine shops to enjoy, so there is no shortage of things to do.

If shopping isn’t your thing, this part of the Normandy coastline is renowned for its beaches, and it’s an easy stroll from Honfleur marina to the breathtaking stretches of golden sand. If you would prefer to travel further afield and visit the many historical landmarks along the Normandy coast, we can arrange local transport and guide.

We complete our itinerary with a superb three course finale dinner held in the magical setting of an eighteenth century Norman manor house, which offers a unique cosy ambience and stunning views across the estuary. It’s the perfect chance to relax and share stories with your fellow travellers before making the voyage home.
