Great Accommodation for School Groups in Normandy!

Are you thinking about taking one of your younger groups to France to give them a taste of French culture? Perhaps you’re thinking about running your first school trip to France and need it to be a success? Or maybe you want to run a history trip to Normandy and need well-located accommodation from which to explore the area? Then you’ll be as excited as we are about this fantastic accommodation option.

The UNCMT Bernieres-sur-Mer is just a stone’s throw from Juno Beach, one of the D-Day Landings beaches. It’s in the centre of a lovely village, within walking distance of the local shops.

If you are planning on taking a younger group to Normandy, you’ll be interested to learn that this accommodation centre is completely enclosed, making it incredibly safe for school groups. In addition to this, the centre adheres to all local and national health, safety, fire and travel industry regulations for welcoming groups.

Of course, we’ll support you every step of the way, so if any issues do crop up, you’ll be able to contact us via the 24/7 emergency number we’ll provide you with. But for added peace of mind, the director of UNCMT will stay on-site for the entirety of your group’s stay.

In terms of food, the menus are usually decided a month before the group arrives. For those with special dietary needs, ready-made meals are provided, for which there is usually a small extra charge. The large dining room can seat 100 people, so you’ll all be able to eat together.

The centre can sleep up to 112 people over two buildings (each with an independent entrance) which are connected by a lobby. All bedrooms have en-suite bathroom facilities and sleep up to 3-6. And one bedroom is accessible for persons with reduced mobility and offers adapted en-suite facilities.

There is separate accommodation provided for coach drivers, away from the group accommodation.

There is a room provided for teachers to relax in with tea and coffee facilities, as well as a fridge. And there is an indoor games room with table tennis and table football. There are also two classrooms/activity rooms with a board and TV. And outside there is a volleyball/badminton court, a basketball court and a pétanque strip.

This accommodation is ideal for school groups and availability is limited. If it sounds like a good fit for your group, why not contact us today for further information or to request a tailor-made quote?
