Normandy in July

Posted by Rosie

Normally in peak season at Eco-Gites of Lenault we only take bookings for full weeks.  This year however we have friends from Australia coming into the gite for a few days midweek so for this year only we are able to offer 2 long week-end breaks in peak season and as detailed below:

* July 12th - 15th which includes Bastille Day * 
There will be fireworks in every local town!
£240 for 3 nights
** NOW £192 **

* July 18th - 21st *
£240 for 3 nights
** NOW £192 **

June 29th - July 5th also available with 20% discount
Please contact us for prices.

We also have a code that will give to 10% off crossings with Brittany Ferries and we are just an hour from Caen or 1½ hrs from Le Havre. 

There really is no excuse not to not book yourself a cheeky little break over here in Normandy.  Here are some of the things you could be doing when you stay:

July events in Normandy

All month, every Friday:
'Les Arts de la Rue (Les Clés de Bagnoles)'.  Street art every Friday evening from 9pm at Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, Orne

5th and 6th July:
Fêtes Médiévales' at Bayeux, Calvados. The streets of the medieval town come alive with medieval performances, stalls and games.  We've been to this and it's great.  The whole town seems to get involved with lots of people dressing up and loads of Medieval things to do and see.

11th - 30th July:
Night-time tour of Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey, Manche.  Take a trail of discovery around this iconic setting with enhanced sound and lights

13th and 14th July:
Fête Nationale.  Celebrate France's national Holiday with firework displays in all local towns.
19th - 23rd July:
'Between Sky and Sea' Festival at Mont-Saint-Michel, Manche.  An eclectic mix of fine arts exhibitions, street theatre, concerts and lectures.

This is just a taste of some of the many events happening around Normandy and close to Eco-Gites of Lenault.  Further information and links to each website can be found here on the Normandy Tourist Office page.

Travel Tuesday


  1. I would love to do the night tour and the Sky and Sea Festival also sounds interesting! Such festivals are the best of summer, aren't they?

    1. There are a good few light and night festivals and shows this summer so I do hope to get to to at least one. Walking around or across the bay of Mont St Michel is also an interesting way of seeing it (and muddy!)

  2. So many exciting things to do there! The World Equestrian Games are being held there in August/September and I hate that Normandy isn't in our travel plans for it.

    1. 2014 really in a great year for Normandy - D-day Landings 70th Anniversary and World Equestrian Games being the 2 biggies but so many smaller and local events as well. Our guests will not be short of things to do this, or any other year for that matter.

  3. Oh I would love to be in Normandy for July 14th! People usually go to capitals for national days, but I just love to be in smaller places, it feels so much more real. I mean to see fireworks by the coast of Normandy, how amazing would that be! :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. I love fireworks over water. It doubles the fun!
