Motoring in France
Before you go
Most shops in the main towns open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm. Shops out of town often shut at lunchtime from noon until 2pm and banks are either open Monday to Friday or Tuesday to Saturday. Almost all shops are closed on Sundays with the exception of the bakeries that usually open for a few hours in the morning.
The climate throughout Normandy is generally a few degrees warmer and therefore the summer season often extends beyond that in the UK. It is often said that the area around Granville has its own even milder microclimate with the westerly facing coast being warmed by the Gulf Stream often being given as the reason. It's not uncommon to hear from guests that travel out of season in October & November to report that they have spent time on the beach and even the odd few that have ventured into the sea!
