Deauville, Trouville or Honfleur: what to do as a family in Normandy this summer?
This summer is an opportunity to rediscover the Normandy coast with your family under a new horizon. For a weekend or more, amazing and enriching activities for children and parents, together or separately!
Different sports courses for children
RIDE THE WAVE OF NORMANDY
The only surfing area in Calvados is on the beach at Trouville, so it was only natural that Stive Lener, a Norman surfer, set up his school and second-hand surfing equipment shop there 14 years ago. With him, the little ones can arrive with their hands in their pockets, the wetsuit and board are provided (after disinfection), and discover how to catch the wave. On days when the sea is calmer, it is always possible to try paddling. For the adults, the school offers this summer coastal courses: submerged up to the waist, you can walk on the beach, a gentle sport to evacuate the tensions of the year in the open air. From 6 years old (knowing how to swim) Discovery session 1h30 per group of four: 55 euros, 4 lessons of 1h30: 140 euros.Northshore Surf School, promenade Savignac.
GET INTO YOGA BEFORE THE AGE OF REASON
Last January, the first yoga studio was opened in Trouville. This summer, this bright place, which looks like a vacation home just 100 metres from the sea, offers, among other things, family yoga classes to take time together. Laura Gauthier, the teacher dedicated to the youngest, has also imagined classes reserved for children.One hour begins with the colouring of a mandala, so that everyone can concentrate, then the class begins in the form of a story that allows even the youngest children to make the sequences with meaning.from 3 years old Kids yoga session, every Sunday morning in the summer, one hour: 20 euros.Studio Brume, 8 rue Thiers, 14360 Trouville-sur-Mer.
GET LOST IN THE CORN
Connoisseurs have been waiting for the Honfleur corn maze every summer for ten years now. The association at the head of the project imagines each year an original route through the fields as well as a new theme. After space and magic, this summer is placed under the sign of the Vikings. A booklet of riddles is given to the children and it is with the family that we set off to find the answers.On the program: a bit of history, the sensation at times of going round in circles immersed in corn and a lot of crazy laughter… On August 21st, a nocturne is organized with a real Viking camp… From 4 years old… Count two hours on the spot: 6 euros per person… Honfleur labyrinth, 14600 Équemauville, D279, behind the camping de la Briquerie.
