Leave only your footprints
behind in Normandy

Family travel is a gift of time spent together. It can also be an opportunity to do your bit for Mother Nature introducing adults and children together to new and interesting places, allowing older generations to convey to younger ones the importance of preserving our fragile planet, so that everyone takes ownership in protecting its future. Normandy is a flourishing region offering eco-friendly gites and environmentally friendly holidays.

Mont-Saint-Michel’s exceptional surroundings
It’s often said that modern travellers should leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but memories. But the reality for most of us, whether we take independent or family holidays, is that it’s incredibly hard to achieve this in a modern age of flights, motorised water sports and fast food. Normandy is accessible by ferry, train and bus and prides itself on the careful development of eco-friendly and sustainable holiday choices with some incredibly special places to stay. Choose from private farmhouses to hosted guesthouses with everything from water to heating being eco-friendly and producing efficient off-grid power.
 
A few days in Normandy with the children can be a simple back-to-nature experience, enjoying its beautiful beaches and white chalk cliffs or cycling through the national park of Cotentin and Bessin Marshlands. If opting for a rustic holiday on an organic farm, children can enjoy contact with the animals, feeding the free-range chickens and helping at harvest time. Mealtimes are often a delicious experience of home grown produce such as vegetables, fruit, local honey and jams and fresh home-baked rustic bread. The host is always glad to prepare a picnic for you to take on your day of discovery around the Normandy countryside.
