Eco-Gites of Lenault - a welcoming gite in Normandy, France
Eco-Gites of Lenault is our family-friendly gite on our smallholding in the beautiful Calvados region of Normandy, France. There is a large play area and we supply masses of kit for younger travellers. Our aim is to be family friendly with a large outdoor play area, a play barn, a boules pitch and the chance to help out with the animals on our smallholding. We are however equally suitable for one or two couples or a group of friends.
The gite sleeps 5 + a travel cot. Downstairs there is a large well-equipped kitchen together with a dining room and lounge area and woodburner. Upstairs is the bathroom with shower and toilet, master bedroom and twin bedroom (both with enough room for travel cots that we can supply). A second staircase takes you to the mezzanine with it's single bed. This room also acts as a play room with toys, games and books supplied.
Equipment for younger guests
For travellers with young children we supply much of the kit you might need - cots, high chairs, booster seat, potty, changing mat, toys, steriliser, kiddy cutlery and crockery, bed-guard, fire-guard, night light etc.
For the adults
With the children well catered for we also want visiting adults to have a relaxing holiday. We therefore provide:
- A well stocked welcome box with extras such as something home-baked, local organic cider and home-made jam
- 'On arrival' shopping by request (fee applies)
- The chance to buy local produce from our smallholding
- First night dinner- please ask for the menu and prices
- BBQ packs
- A comprehensive tourist pack
What to do in Normandy
We are well situated for enjoying the many leisure activities of Calvados. A footpath leads straight from the back gate, there are stables nearby and we are 15mins from Suisse Normandie with its water and outdoor activities. Caen and Bayeux are just an hour away as are the Normandy landing beaches. Click here for a blog about all the things there are to do locally with young children.
The gite, a restored hay barn has been created using reclaimed, reused and eco-friendly materials and furnishings and is insulated to a very high level, also making it a perfect mid and low season retreat. A woodburner keeps guests cosy in colder months.
Finally - our aim:
We want to provide somewhere for you and your family to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We have made the gite a home from home and are located in an area where there is so much to do that many of our guests have returned several times. If, however there is one gripe we hear, it is this. On asking children to get in the car to go out we hear:
