Despite recent snow, cold weather and just a little too much rain, it is clear to see that Spring is slowly heading our way. Some buds are swelling and in sheltered places there is elder and honeysuckle in leaf. Plenty of plants are pushing up from the wet soil, not least the wild garlic which, down the south facing valley is already large enough for a forage (mmmm - leek and wild garlic risotto). The grass is growing, there are catkins on the trees, snowdrops are in flower and friends already have several lambs gambolling around the fields. Winter may not be completely gone but Spring is definitely on the horizon.
So why not make a Spring visit to Normandy this year? There are plenty of reasons I can think of to come to Eco-Gites of Lenault out of high high season. Here's just three:

Quieter tourist attractions:Spring is good time to visit some of the more popular tourist sites around Normandy. There will be no queues to get into the Bayeux Tapestry, the narrow streets of Mont St Michel will be much less crowded and there will be fewer people at Falaise Castle than when William the Conqueror lived there! A perfect time for really appreciating these wonderful sites.
Better Value:Travelling out of season means you can make some significant the savings. Accommodation, ferries, attractions are all much cheaper than in the peak weeks of July and August. Our peak summer price per week is £480 but look at the prices earlier in the year:
- Up to the end of April - £300/week
- May and June - £380/week
And you don't need to visit for a whole week. At £65 a night why not have a long week-end? Last year every week-end through May booked up so if you fancy coming at the end of Spring don't delay and make that booking now.
