Motorbikes at Eco-Gites of Lenault

Posted by Rosie

We have had friends arrive at Eco-Gites of Lenault by bike (brave souls cycling up the hill to us!), we have collected other friends without cars from ferry ports, train and bus stations and others have come in camper-vans and caravans.  One family did arrive with (not by) a boat but until last week all our guests had come by car.  However last week we had our first guests here who arrived by motorbike.


To say the boys were excited was a slight understatement and they were itching to sit on the bikes.  Our motorbiking guests had made the decision to see as much as possible of the region during their stay here so whilst the boys left for school before they were up, it was after the boys were in bed before they returned from their travels.  Luckily on one night though they did return just a bit earlier and despite being in PJs (well Tom should have been and Ben already was) they got the chance to sit on one of the bikes.  Two very happy boys went to bed that night!


 

There was also the friend of guests who flew into Caen airport and the couple who were walking across northern France with their donkeys and dog who spent the night camping here. I wonder what other means of transport our guests might chose to arrive by.  On horseback maybe?  Have you ever arrived somewhere in an unconventional manner?  Do let us know if you have.

    1. Funny you should say that - whilst we have never had guests arrive by balloon we did have a hot air balloon land in the field next to us last year!

  3. That's a great story Rosie, must have been so exciting for the boys. I love motorbikes when they're not moving - defeats the object I know! Must have been great to see the bikes arrive, maybe you will get some horses one day! Lovely post, thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

    1. We do get horse riders here from time to time .... when they miss the path and come up our front drive instead.

    1. I have to say I was quite glad they only went on the bikes when they were stationary! They were BIG.

  5. How fab, my son loves motorbikes too in fact I was just telling him last night how my dad used to have one. Mum and Dad used to travel all over on it including to the South of France, a great way to see a country I think. #magicmoments
