14 things to do at Eco-Gites of Lenault in 2014

Posted by Rosie

Wondering what to do if you visit 

Eco-Gites of Lenault in Normandy, France 

for a holiday this year?

Read on for lots of inspiration:


Let's go fly a kite
 1.  Fly a kite on the beach - or sunbathe, or go for a horse ride, or build a sand castle ....

2.  Visit the birthplace of William the Conqueror - Falaise Castle

3.  Go for a walk or bike ride - there's a path right from our back gate and loads of routes to chose from.

4.  Pay tribute to the brave men and women of WWII - visit a cemetery or war museum, follow one of the D-Day Landing routes or the beaches themselves.

5.  Visit an art gallery - Honfleur has plenty to chose from and our local town of Condé-sur-Noireau even has one!

Tickling piglets at Eco-Gites of Lenault
6.  Tickle Boris Johnson (he's one of our pigs!)

7.  Relax in the garden whilst your children wear themselves out in the play area and on the trampoline.

8.  Cycle along a railway track - there 2 Vélorails to chose from locally.

9.  Walk along the side of a cliff - the Via Ferrata at Clécy

10.  Go horse-riding. There are 2 riding stables close by.

11.  Visit THAT tapestry.  (Bayeux is also lovely for shopping).

Normandy Cider
12.  Eat local produce - Camembert and other cheeses, teurgoule (local rice pudding), tarte normande (apple tart), crêpes, seafood galore and of course drink cider and Calvados.

13.  Visit Suisse Normande - we are right on the edge of this beautiful region where you can enjoy activities as varied as paragliding to miniature railways, canoeing to geology museums !

14.  Wonder why you didn't book a longer break at Eco-Gites of Lenault in Normandy, France as there is SO much to do!
