Visit to Coutances Cathedral - part 1

Published on March 3, 2016 by Chris Robinson

Originally shared by +Gavray gite rentals, Normandy France

I can highly recommend a guided tour of the upper parts of Coutances Cathedral in Normandy. The picture shows the stained glass windows high up in the roof space which you pass as you walk along the walkway you can see at the bottom of the picture. There are three levels to the tour and you also get to walk inside the lantern tower. A small, insignificant wooden door near to the main entrance reveals a stone staircase that leads to the hidden parts of the cathedral. Tours have to be reserved by calling +33 (0)2 72 88 14 25 and cost 8 euros for an hour and a half of discovery. Maximum of 14 people, minimum age of 10. Tours can also be arranged at any time for groups in English. Part 2 will cover the lower level of the cathedral.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
