December weekend break

December Break at Le Clos de l’Ancien Pressoir in Normandy

For a third year, Learning French in France are organising a weekend shopping and cultural break at Le Clos de l’Ancien Pressoir, in Commes, Calvados, to take place from Friday evening 4 December to Sunday 6 December at a cost of £279.

We will be travelling to Portsmouth by minibus, leaving central London at 8 pm; alternatively we can meet you at Portsmouth. We will travel overnight via Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth, arriving at Caen on Saturday morning. You will have your own cabin, with shower and toilet facilities. A breakfast is provided on the ferry.

Accommodation at Le Clos is on a one-per-room basis. All rooms are en-suite.

The itinerary in France includes visits to the Bayeux Saturday market, the famous Caen Christmas market and a local hyper-market. There will be other shopping opportunities at specialist shops, as well as the possibility of visiting many of the cultural attractions of the area.

In addition to breakfast and buffet lunches on Saturday and Sunday, included in the cost of the trip is a gourmet meal with wine at the beautiful Château de Sully on Saturday night.

The return ferry on Sunday evening arrives at Portsmouth, and the minibus will carry on to central London.
