7 reasons to visit Eco-Gites of Lenault in September

Posted by Rosie

1. Invariably September is one or the warmer months in Normandy and last year, all our best beach trips were in September and October.

2. But should it turn a bit chilly the wood burner in the gite will keep you warm and cosy (and there's a fire-guard if you need to keep little ones safe).

3. All the usual attractions are open and will be much quieter, so no long queues to get in or buy an ice-cream. Bayeux, Mont St Michel, the D-Day Landing Beaches, Falaise Castle, Festyland, The Velo-Rail, Jurques Zoo, local art galleries and museums (the list goes on) are all within easy reach of the gite.

4. There are plenty of special events, boot fairs, brocantes, festivals and one off activities to attend with more details here.

5. You can go blackberry picking along the footpaths that start straight from our gate - great for crumbles, pies and jam but should you choose not to make jam I have plenty for sale with all different fruits.

Blackberry crumble anyone?

6. The exchange rate is looking good at the moment for visitors from the UK. £1.00 = €1.26.

7. Finally we have availability from September 13th 2014 so there's still time to bag an Autumn holiday at Eco-Gites of Lenault.

  1. Hi Rosie
    Sounds wonderful! Wish we could visit :-)
    Hope all's going well with you, Bridget

  2. Thank you Bridget - it is a lovely time of year. We are all well here and very busy fighting the weeds, looking after gite customers and keeping boys occupied (they are 2 weeks into their 8 week Summer break). Are you due to get back in the Northern Hemisphere at all in the imminent future? R xx
