Some 2017 Dates for your Diary

If you are thinking of visiting France this year there are some dates you might like to write into your calendar. This year many of the movable holidays make a long weekend, and these may be good dates to avoid visiting the busiest of chateaux.

Monday 17 April Easter Monday (Lundi de Pâques)
Monday 1 May Labor Day (Fête du premier mai)
8 May WWII Victory Day
(Fête de la Victoire 1945; Fête du huitième mai)
Friday 14 July Bastille Day (Fête nationale)
Tuesday 15 August Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Wednesday 1 November All Saints Day (La Toussaint)
Saturday 11 November Armistice Day (Jour d'armistice)
Monday 25 December Christmas Day (Noël)

Why not book a holiday in the Touraine and visit a small French town for Bastille Day with us? There may not be military parades, but there will be a flaming torch lit procession around town behind a band, then fireworks and a dance, lasting late into the night.

Email us, and we will help you plan a week or weekend with us in the beautiful south Touraine.
