What to do around your hotel in February

Are you planning to stay in our 3-star hotel in Avranches in February? Even in winter, the town of Avranches offers some interesting outings. Here are a few ideas for visits and activities to make your stay in Normandy 100 % a success.


Your charming hotel is close to some of the most beautiful religious buildings in the town of Avranches. Not to be missed:

  • Saint-Gervais Basilica, place Saint-Gervais: this neo-Gothic masterpiece houses a treasure trove of religious artefacts.
  • Notre-Dame-des-Champs church, place Carnot: built in the 17th century and renovated in the 19th, this building has been a listed historic monument since 2006.
  • Saint-Saturnin church, place Littré: dating back to the 13th century in its oldest parts, this is the oldest religious building in the town.


Is it a bit too cold to stroll around the Jardin des Plantes for very long? This season's exhibitions are waiting for you! From 2 to 26 February, "Le Mont Saint-Michel désert", organised at the Scriptorial, 6 place d'Estouteville, shows you the surprising images of a Mont without visitors, captured by the great Norman photographer Vincent M. On the same dates and a little further afield, in Vains, you can also discover the works of the artist Paco, at the Ferme des Cara-Meuh: works in pencil, felt-tip pen, acrylic or watercolour that convey the emotion provoked by a landscape, a street...


If you want to enjoy the culture of Avranchine in the warmth of your own room, you can also take advantage of the region's gastronomic delights! It's a great opportunity to sample a few specialities while mingling with the locals. Your 3-star hotel recommends some of the best places to eat in Avranches:

  • Obione, 8 rue du Docteur-Gilbert: this excellent restaurant offers fine seasonal cuisine at affordable prices.
  • Le Royal Café Brasserie, at 2/4 Rue du Docteur Gilbert: enjoy the local atmosphere in this lively place, where the food is simple but effective, and of course very cheap.
  • 5ème Avenue, at 49 rue de la division Leclerc: in this stylish restaurant with an indus spirit, you'll enjoy some very good desserts, from tiramisus to brioches perdues.


Are you a fan of unusual activities? To enjoy your destination in an original way, let yourself be tempted by a microlight flight with an experienced pilot! You'll see the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel like never before... This 30-minute experience starts at the Val Saint Père aerodrome. The only conditions for taking part are that you must be over ten years old, less than 1.95 m tall and weigh less than 95 kg.

Whether unusual or more traditional, there's no shortage of activities around your charming hotel in Avranches. Don't hesitate to check the reception desk for all the great things to do in February!
