Normandy Gardens - FC15

On this tour, you'll experience two very different castles in the French countryside. First, stroll the endless botanical gardens at Vauville Castle. This modern wonder was created in 1947 and is home to more than 500 varieties of plants and flowers native to the southern hemisphere. Then, enjoy an exterior visit of the 16th-century Nacqueville Castle. Set in an old English park, its lavish gardens are famous for colorful rhododendrons, azaleas, and arum lilies that run along the riverside. Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.5 miles over uneven surfaces and 40/50 steps.
