Disabled Holidays in Normandy

Beach and cliffs in Normandy, France

Often referred to as France’s version of Devon (with Brittany being its Cornwall), Normandy is lower-lying and less rugged than its neighbour, while still matching it in natural beauty and historical sights.

It’s home to some great beaches, with large, shingled expanses backed by dramatic cliffs between Dieppe and Le Havre, and flatter golden sands west of the Seine – the scene of the D-Day landings. Today the beaches are popular for traditional days at the seaside as well as reverential battlefield tours, which visit all five of the D-Day landing sites, along with other local attractions.

Inland Normandy is just as pretty. The countryside is dotted with lush meadows, rolling orchards and quaint villages, with plenty of bucolic pubs and restaurants serving up freshly caught seafood alongside dishes crafted with locally produced apples and Camembert.

Gems like the island monastery of Mont-St-Michel and Rouen’s colourful medieval old town complete the package.

Accessible attractions

Battlefield tours are one of the main draws for veterans and history buffs coming to Normandy. As well as visiting the five D-Day beaches – Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword – they also stop off at several museums and resting places, such as the Caen Memorial museum, which is wheelchair accessible. To arrange a disabled-friendly tour that suits your requirements, please call us on 0161 804 9898.

Other accessible attractions in Normandy include the Bayeux Museum, home of the famous 11th-century tapestry telling the epic tale of the Norman invasion of England. The museum has a wheelchair entrance and a lift to the upper floors. Bayeux’s impressive Norman-Romanesque cathedral is also wheelchair accessible.

Getting there

By ferry and car: Ferries sail from Portsmouth to Le Havre, Cherbourg, and Ouistreham, just north of Caen. Sailing to Caen takes six hours, Le Havre four and Cherbourg three. Poole to Cherbourg and Newhaven to Dieppe ferry services take four hours. Dover to Calais takes 90 minutes, and Dover to Dunkirk takes two hours. You can also take the Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais and drive to Normandy.

By train: The Eurostar from London to Paris Gard du Nord takes 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 30 minutes The TGV service from Paris to Rouen calls at Vernon (for Giverny) and continues to Dieppe and Le Havre. Journey time from Paris to Dieppe is 2 hours 25 minutes. Trains between Cherbourg and Paris call at Bayeux and Caen.

By air: The two main airports for Normandy are Caen-Carpiquet and Deauvlle-Normandie. Not every UK airport has a direct service, however, so please check availability and flight times with us.

Types of accessible accommodation: Gîtes, cottages, apartments and hotels.
