Dreaming of escaping together on a romantic break to Normandy? If romance means sharing the thrills of adventurous outdoor activities, these weekend suggestions not only provide the perfect combination of adrenaline and excitement, they’re a true immersion in the culture of Normandy too!
Bungee Jumping at the Viaduc de la Souleuvre
On the hunt for the perfect experience with the adrenaline junkie in your life? This is one of the ultimate dopamine rushes for you to share with your loved one. Surrounded by stunning natural scenery, there is little to match the thrills of jumping off a 61 meters high Viaduc de la Souleuvre with an elastic band around your ankles clinging to your lover.
Enjoy the free-fall and feel the adrenaline pumping through you as the bungee cord reaches its full extension. If you are a little reluctant for the big jump, other options may speak to your thrill-seeking hearts: try the zip line, the swing or the pendulum jump. A memory for you and your partner to share for the rest of you lives together.
WHERE TO SLEEP NEARBY ?
Enjoy a nice restaurant and a cosy stay in Saint-Lô, only 30 minutes away.
Scare yourselves trying to escape!
Are you the type of person that’s watched Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow about ten times or that’s an absolute fan of Stephen King? If you’re looking for something adrenaline-fueled and sometimes scary with your loved one, Room 1424 of the Albizia Estate is an enthralling way to experience thrills and chills together. Knowing that something terrifying could be lurking around every corner of this immersive room is exhilarating.
The next morning, after a good breakfast, fully recovered from the emotions of the previous day, try the escape game! Work with your partner to reclaim your freedom, escape the vegetal labyrinth and solve the enigmas of the Witches’ Hamlet. For the less adventurous, you can also stay in the “ Pan’s Dream” guest room featuring a private cinema room and 800 DVDs! Conveniently located, you are only 20 minutes from the medieval market town of Bayeux and 30 minutes from Caen.
From the beginning of May to the end of October, visit the gardens of the Domaine d’Albizia.
Explore Normandy’s countryside driving a vintage Citroën 2CV!
Enjoy a thrilling spin onboard a legendary 2CV through winding country roads for a blend of romance, culture, adventure and beautiful landscapes. More than a little rustic and colourful car, the Citroen 2CV – better known as the “deux chevaux” because of its minimal horsepower – is a true symbol of freedom that holds a special place in people’s heart. Loved by millions, the 2CV was initially designed to be the people’s car, affordable and reliable! Get behind the steering wheel of this mythical car and drive off on a romantic adventure in the verdant Pays d’Auge and chic Côte Fleurie at your own pace.
It had always been Nadine’s dream to drive a 2CV and feel these thrilling sensations. That soft, long-travel suspension provides both a smooth ride and a unique cornering experience! The self-drive itinerary is all planned in advance and offers a great opportunity to discover the gems of the area, including visits and local delicacies tastings.
