Vintage Car Tour of Normandie

Every year the Association Tour de Normandie des Vehicules Historiques (Classic Tour of  Normandie Association) organises a rally of vintage cars through the back roads of Normandie.

Tour de Normandie - classic car rally The  Tour de Normandie takes place 21-24  June 2018  and comprises a leisurely amble through the Normandy countryside (le Bocage) and along the coast. In 2016 it started  from Forges les Eaux (76 Seine-Maritime, Normandie) the with music and a parade of the vehicles – the rally proper started with a route heading to Etretat (76 Seine-Maritime, Normandie)
As with so many such events, you don’t have to be fanatical about classic cars to enjoy it – you’ll discover the French countryside and a carnival atmosphere which will be enjoyable on many levels. Somehow, summer skies, iconic french cars, music, Normandy cheese, butter, apples, cider, calvados topped with the sandy beaches of the Normandy coast sounds pretty good.

Étretat, on the Alabaster Coast (Côte d’Albâtre) is best known for its cliffs, including three natural arches and the pointed “needle”. These cliffs and the associated resort beach attracted artists in the late 19th/early 20th century. Étretat is about 30km north of Le Havre and 80km west of Dieppe.
