Christmas & New Year Breaks

Have you ever thought of spending Christmas and/or New Year in Normandy?


Ok lets paint a picture for you....Many years ago in England people used to spend Christmas and the New Year getting very excited making decorations, preparing food and then come Christmas day eating, drinking and making merry! There was a very 'Olde World' feel about it and things like TV and electronic games did not spoil the mood. Have you, for example ever dreamt of spending Christmas evenings in front of a roaring log fire - even roasting chestnuts?


I suppose that what we are suggesting is that you could recreate a real Dickensian Christmas more easily in France. Life certainly moves at a slower pace here and having a super family Christmas and/or New Year in Normandy is very easy. Walking off the Christmas and New Year dinner is also possible along country lanes that hardly have any traffic.


However, we are realists and most of our gites do have Satellite TV ad DVD players just in case you want to get rid of the kids for a couple of hours while you build up an appetite for the next festive meal!

We can arrange, if booked well in advance. to have food and hampers supplied which can help take care of some tedious shopping. This can also include some terrific local produce.

If you don't want to cook then the many local restaurants should be able fulfil most of your culinary requirements.
