Good morning from Normandy

Good morning from Normandy

Originally shared by +Gavray gite rentals, Normandy France

I opened the shutters this morning to such a beautiful sunrise that I just had to capture it. I headed out to the garden and the views only got better. Everything was bathed in a warm and golden light which seemed slightly surreal but from time to time the morning dew on my feet reminded me otherwise. It's faded now but what a great start to the day in Normandy.

Celebrating La Toussaint

Celebrating La Toussaint

November 1st is 'la Toussaint' – (All Saints Days) in France and is a contraction of the phrase ’ Tous les Saints’. It’s the day when people mourn their dead, go to special church services, visit cemeteries and and put fresh flowers on their loved ones' graves. Chrysanthemums are usually chosen and they are everywhere at this time of year. The photo shows the decorations in the main square in Coutances in Normandy.

A relaxing holiday in Normandy

A relaxing holiday in Normandy

Although the October holidays are almost over, it's the ideal time to explore Normandy. Everywhere will be quieter, even Mont St Michel, which can be busy during the summer holidays. It's Normandy's most popular visitor attraction and well worth a visit.

The cloister at Mont St Michel

The cloister at Mont St Michel

The cloister’s function was to provide access to all the essential rooms: the refectory, kitchens, church, dormitory, chapter hall and the archives. Only the north gallery, looking out towards the sea, was not meant to serve as a way of communication with other rooms. The principal functions of monastic life, except for work and reception, were therefore distributed around the cloister. It also served as the place set aside for the monk’s personal meditation.

Autumn in Normandy

Today is a gloriously sunny day full of Autumn colour here in Normandy. I took these pictures in and around my garden of the holly, viburnum and acer (or perhaps it's a maple?) The garden for the gite has recently been created so now is the perfect time to think about creating colour in it all year round.

Granville high town

Granville high town

This interesting building in Granville high town in Normandy is full of charm. With its turret and half timbered facade, it perches on the edge of a square opposite the church. The rear of the building looks south towards the harbour and views towards Mont St Michel.

Autumn in Normandy

autumn in Normandy

Having enjoyed an 'indian summer' in late September, the weather is definitely changing. The mornings can be misty and the days are getting shorter. However, there's still plenty to see and do in Normandy. The beaches are quieter than usual but great for walking and beach combing. Or you can explore the many walking routes and admire the autumnal colours. Thinking of an autumn visit to Normandy? Check out the website and you could be enjoying beautiful scenery, delicious food and drink and a cosy gite with a woodburning stove.
