A February Visit to Normandy


Last February half term we let the gite to a family whose Dad and older son had a particular interest in things to do with the D-Day Landings in Normandy.   Whilst Mum, Kara and the younger children were also keen to see these sites they also wanted to visit many of the other great places in Normandy.  On their return Kara blogged about what they did and I was amazed how much they had fitted in!  Over their week here they visited:

  • St Mere Eglise *
  • Airborne Museum *
  • Point Du Hoc *
  • Bayeux
  • American War Cemetery *
  • Mont St Michel
  • Pegasus Bridge *
  • Utah, Omaha, Juno, Gold and Sword Beaches *

Those site marked with an asterix are all related to WWII but that didn't mean that the younger children were bored as places like the Landing Beaches, cemeteries and museums have much to keep visitors of all ages interested.

For more details about all these sites head on over to her blog (Chelsea Mamma) with these links:

Oh .... and they also had snow whilst they were here much to the enjoyment of everybody:

If you fancy a trip to Normandy to see all these great sites please do get in touch about making a booking.  We currently still have Feb half term available but please note I am afraid we can't guarantee snow!
