Easter at Eco-Gites of Lenault, Normandy, France

Posted by Rosie

Bookings have come in thick and fast since Christmas and now we only have a handful of school holiday dates left for 2015.  One of those is Easter week.  Could we therefore tempt you to come and spend Easter in Normandy this year?

Sat 4th -Sat 11th April 2015 is currently available and whilst we cannot be flexible at the end of the week, due to an existing booking, we can at the beginning.  So if you wanted to come a bit earlier that would not be a problem.

Do you need a bit more convincing?  Here is just some of what this region of Normandy has to offer at Easter time:


French chocolate is delicious and their Easter creations are wonderful.  Eggs feature but also you'll see plenty of chocolate chickens, fish and rabbits, all beautifully wrapped.


By Easter spring will be on it's way.  The road verges and paths will be full of wild flowers and the swallows will be on their way back for the summer.  We may have ducklings by then and if the weather has been dry our piglets will be out in the fields.

Warmer weather

In fairness I cannot guarantee this but on many Aprils in the past it has been warm enough to eat out in the garden, and the gite garden is nicely sheltered. 

Tourist attractions

All the main tourist attractions will be open but considerably quieter then in summer.  You'll have more time to marvel at the Bayeux Tapestry and less crowds to deal with at Mont St Michel.  You never know, our local zoo at Jurques may well have new arrivals.


Did I mention chocolate?

Wine, cider and calvados

You can come and stock up on plenty of white and rosé for the summer ahead at delightfully low French prices.  And seeing as we are in Calvados with all it's apple orchards you could also take home some cider and calvados, the spirit our department takes it's name from.

Events, Exhibitions and Activities in April

If you are wondering what to do on your break here this page gives a list of what's on  in Normandy in April 2015.  Or you could just chill in the garden whilst the kids wear themselves out in the play area! 


Don't forget the chocolate!

Talking about chocolate, if you visit with children, we will be happy to arrange an Easter Egg Hunt for them.  For adults we'll add some Easter goodies into your welcome box.

Eco-Gites of Lenault sleeps 5 plus a baby and the week at Easter is just £425 which if my maths serves me right works out at less than £61 per day and a mere £12 per person per day if 5 people stay.  We also have a code to give you 10% off with Brittany Ferries and we are just an hour south of Caen ferry port.  Further details on all the ways to get us can be found on this blog post.

Will it be you who we wish Joyeux Pâques to this Easter?

  1. Oh my goodness that takes me back. When I lived in France I bought a pack of mini Easter eggs to bring home for my family. It was a huge pack and I ended up eating them before Easter. The problem was they were so good I ended up buying about 10 packs over the next few days before Easter and eating them all. I bought one final pack as I was leaving so they could have some. I then ate the lot on my way home. I do miss France at Easter!xx
