We met our wonderful guide, Christophe Gosselin at Pointe du Roc in Granville. He took us on a walking tour of the city, which was founded in the 12th century. We visited the church, Notre-Dame du Cap Lihou, that was built in the 13th century. It had later additions, and the difference in architecture between parts of the church is quite noticeable.
The town is also home to Christian Dior. There is a museum in his family home, but we didn’t get a chance to visit.
We had lunch at the most marvelous restaurant, Picorette. (http://www.picorette.fr/). It is a family run place, using only the freshest of local ingredients-vegetables which they grow themselves, fish and bread from the markets down the street. The food was truly wonderful and we had great service from François, who found us a place to sit despite the restaurant being completely booked for lunch. He spoke flawless English-with an English accent, which for some reason I found strange, although it really does make sense. Apparently he also speaks and writes Mandarin and speaks Japanese as well. He is quite a remarkable young man.
