Goat and alpaca farm in Normandy

Published on August 25, 2015 by Chris Robinson

A visit to the farm in La Baleine is a great activity for children. Just a 15 minute drive from Gavray, you can take a guided tour on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 3pm. We were the only people for the tour so the owner, Benoit, explained about the goats and alpacas in English. Children are able to get up close to the goats although the alpacas are more timid. Benoit's wife, Cecile, knits and weaves with the mohair and alpaca wool and sells a range of handmade items in the shop which is open from 2 - 7pm on the same days as the farm tours.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
