The Owner Recommends

Local Restaurants are fantastic

In Vassy, Condé-sur-Noireau and Vire and in many of the surrounding villages.

Mont St Michel

This historical site is an hour from the house and is so atmospheric, situated in the bay looking out to the Channel Isles. It is known for its high and rapid tides however it is possible to walk across the sands with a knowledgeable guide.


Well-known for being the home of the Bayeux Tapestry, which depicts the events leading up to the Norman Conquest and also, being the first city to be liberated by the Allies in the Second World War on 7 June 1944. The Bayeux War Cemetery includes the largest British cemetery dating from the World War II.

A beautiful Cathedral and plentiful restaurants and shops at 53 Km from the house.


At 45 minutes from the house, Falaise is the birth place of William the Conqueror, and a very large Fort set magnificently on a rocky promontory. In the summer there are often fairs and reenactments of historical events.

Swiss Normandy - Clécy and Thury Harcourt

There is a Suisse-Normande route marked 65km tourist trail, which takes you through rugged and steep landscapes as you meander along the winding banksof the Orne.

Clécy is less than half an hour from the house through beautiful green country lanes. The town is quaint with a central Church and square, where you can sit outside the patisserie and enjoy a drink and snack.
Descending to the river Orne you will find numerous riverside restaurants along with activities such as cliff climbing, kayaking and pedal or row boats.This is the area locals will come at the weekend for a Sunday outing.
Paragliding can be undertaken from the cliffs and there are numerous walks and cycle rides in the hilly terrain.
Thury Harcourt is further along the river and on the Caen road. Many sports can be experienced here such as kayaking, canoeing along the Orne to Pont D'Ouilly or Clècy. Or mountain biking, hiking or other watersports.
