Normandy Easter Activities

Published on April 19, 2019 by Chris Robinson

There will be Easter egg hunts taking place all over Normandy this weekend. Only Easter Monday is a public holiday so they'll be spread over the three days of the extended Easter weekend.

This link gives details of a number of hunts in and around Granville. The nearest ones to me are at Equilly and Cerences.

This list of 29 farms holding easter egg hunts also has details of one at Mesnil Rogues. This is a farm that's about 10 - 15 minutes away. It's called La Ceuillette, Ferme de Lucie and there's a farm shops that sells products such as honey, jam, cider, apple juice and calvados.

You can also look at the map option to see where they are.

If you don't fancy an Easter egg hunt, then there's plenty going on. On Saturday the abbey at Mont-Saint-Michel will be open until 10.30pm and there'll be a high tide at around 9pm. You're advised to get there around 2 hours before and will hopefully see the island cut off from the mainland.

For a list of church services happening around postal code 50450, check out this link. In Villedieu-les-Poêles the bell foundry will be open on Monday. The nearby Zoo de Champrépus is a popular family day out and will be open on Easter Monday.

You can also read about French traditions around church bells and chocolate fish here.

Obviously Easter should be celebrated with chocolate. The chocolate shops and pâtisseries are full of amazing creations.  Weather-wise it's currently warm and sunny in Normandy and that looks to continue for the rest of the weekend. If you're in France at Easter, you're bound to find something to tempt you.

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.
