5 good reasons to celebrate Christmas here in Calvados

1 - To enjoy a truly extraordinary holiday

Don't you sometimes find that staying at home or always going to the same place for years lacks a little Christmas lustre...? Come to Calvados, and you're sure to enjoy an original winter holiday over a total change of scenery!

2 - To enjoy a breath of fresh air with the whole family

Enjoy the freedom of a brisk walk along our invigorating seafront, or in the heart of nature's best in the Normandy bocage. Then get together in one of our great family rentals.

3 - Indulge yourself in a seafront location!

Massages, hammam, spa, sea mud and spa care... What more natural way to let yourself be pampered over the Christmas break than in one of our five spa centres on the seafront?

4 - Relish in some truly festive produce, made in Calvados

In Calvados, Christmas is an apple-scented season! And your scallops and oysters have travelled less than an hour from home before reaching your plate!

Pay a visit to one of our cider or calvados producers, discover the secrets of the Graindorge cheese dairy or enjoy an encounter with our fresh scallops.

And why not let our chefs take over, for they know exactly how to make the most of our exceptional country fare.

5 - New and original activities for the whole family to enjoy

Because Christmas is also a feast for the eyes! Head for Bayeux Cathedral and revel in a magnificently colourful show.
And what about Nativity? You can see no less than 250 Nativity scenes, right here in Lisieux!
Are you feeling lucky? Don't waste a second, head for one of our many casinos!
