Christmas in Calvados

Posted by Rosie

The gite is already booked for New Year but it is not too late to book a Christmas break here at Eco-Gites in Calvados. Throughout December we are open for bookings of 2 nights or longer giving you the perfect opportunity to enjoy a bit of festive French Noël. During your stay you can visit one of the many Christmas markets and concerts that are taking place throughout the region, then return and snuggle up in front of the wood-burner (wood and kindling supplied) with a glass of mulled wine. For lovers of the outdoors there are miles of footpaths you can explore, starting straight from our gate and some excellent wildlife to be seen. Other Winter attractions include ice skating at Caen, Christmas shopping at both the plentiful local shops or the bigger shopping centre of Mondeville at Caen and no queues at places like the Bayeux Tapestry!!

From December 11th there will be a decorated Christmas tree in the gite and all guests will find a festive welcome pack to greet them on arrival. We cannot guarantee you a white Christmas although as I write this it is already white outside after snow fell 2 days ago and last year we had snow from Dec 17th ......... so you never know.

So, why not pack your snow boots/walking boots, book a ferry or train and take the opportunity to stock up on some wine and champers to continue your festive celebrations once back home? For further details about the gite and for a booking form either visit - or email us at or telephone 0033 231 09 27 51.

Joyeux Noël
