Couples Welcome at Eco-Gites of Lenault

Posted by Rosie

Many of the visitors who stay at Eco-Gites of Lenault come with children and we pride ourselves on being very family-friendly.  However the second most frequent visitor group here are couples.  If you and your loved one are thinking about a trip to France, here are 9 reasons why we think you might want to choose Eco-Gites of Lenault.

Cosy and Spacious

The gite manages to be both spacious and cosy - you won't feel like you are rattling round in huge mansion but you will have plenty of space as well!  Can't you just imagine yourself curled up in front of our wood burner with a glass of wine and a good book?

With the gorgeous wood-burner and traditional French furniture in the master bedroom, Eco-Gites makes a wonderfully romantic get-away location.  Snuggle up in front of the fire and then .... 

The master bedroom

A grown-up gite!

If you are visiting us without children we will move all the children's things out of sight.  The toys go up in to the mezzanine playroom, the high chair, fire guard, stair gates and suchlike are all packed away leaving the gite a "grown-up" place for your visit.

Peace and quiet

With the nearest road almost 300m away and besides us, no other neighbours, we are a truly quiet location where you can escape the hustle and bustle of busy lives and really relax and unwind.

With no children in the play area you will have the area all to yourself and can challenge your partner to that quintessentially French game of Pétanque (Boules).  We supply the boules and will join you in a game if you want!

There are also a good range of games, puzzles and books for adults in the gite.

Tourist Attractions

Le Mont St Michel

We may be in a quiet corner of Normandy but we are also extremely well placed for you to visit many great tourist attractions.  All the following are within easy driving distance of Eco-Gites of Lenault:- Bayeux, Caen, The D-Day Landing Beaches, Museums and Memorials, Suisse Normandie, Honfleur, Most St Michel and Falaise.  There are also exhibitions, street festivals and events throughout the year and daily markets close-by.

Daily local markets

Eat at home or in local restaurants

The gite has a large and well equipped kitchen so you can prepare your meals without any difficulty.  In fine weather the garden is lovely to sit in for meals. Should you wish to eat out there are large numbers of local restaurants of all types and to suit all pockets. We are happy to make a telephone reservation for you if you would like.  If you want to stay in but not cook we can prepare a simple meal for you, delivered hot and ready to eat. This is a popular option for guest's arrival night and takes the pressure off having to cook after the journey here.

Dinner cooked by us!


Why not spend some time in the local shops and stock up with wine, Calvados, cider or presents for friends, family and of course yourself?  There are plenty of small independent shops, caves selling wine and local cider and larger shopping complexes at Vire, Caen and other big towns.


If just 2 people stay in the gite for a week between November and March we will take 15% off the normal price.  A reduction of between 5 and 10% is possible for stays of less than a week.  In both cases this offer still stands if you bring a cot sleeping infant.  Please note that some dates are excluded from this offer.

If you are travelling to France with Brittany Ferries we have a code that will give you 10% off your crossing.  Please ask us for the code when making your reservation.
