Virtually all our school holiday dates are now booked with one noticeable exception, Easter. We have had a cancellation giving you an extra chance to come and stay at Eco-Gites of Lenault during school holiday times.
Maybe you are unsure of what to do in April - maybe you think it will be too cold or wet? Whilst I can't predict the weather, I can say that April is often lovely here (and to be honest I have had lunch outside most days this week in mid March!). It is a time of wild flowers and blossom, of lambs and of Spring. But if things do turn a bit chilly the wood burner will keep the whole gite warm and you can always order one of my home-made suppers which now has a hot pudding option - rhubarb crumble no less, to go with the main course of lasagne.
As for things to do I have been having a search and immediately came up with LOADS of special events:
Tulip Festival at The château de Vendeuvre - Tulips are not just for Amsterdam and we have our very own Normandy Tulip Festival to enjoy every afternoon throughout April. Over 30,000 tulips, daffodil and grape hyacinths have been planted giving a veritable carpet of flower power.
Deauville Music Festival - From 19th April to 3rd May Deauville will host a series of chamber music and choral concerts, with those on Easter Sunday being free of charge.
Houlgate Kite Festival - This annual event will take place between April 25th and 27th and is an attraction not to be missed. Hundreds of fantastic, huge and extremely colourful kites will amaze visitors to this seaside town with 3 days of kite flying and exhibitions.
Joyeuses Pâques tout le monde!
