Activities

The property is ideally located to explore the Suisse Normande and all it has to offer.
The areas of Suisse Normande and the Pays de Falaise offer a quality natural environment. The spectacular landscapes shaped by the River Orne are the ideal site for outdoor sports.
The brèche au diable (devil's breach), the pain de sucre (sugar block), the rochers des parcs (park rocks)... so many evocative and poetic names describe the tumultuous landscapes of the Pays de Falaise and Suisse Normande. Suisse Normande even boasts its own Crest Route. The pain de sucre in Saint Omer is its highest peak: 214m (700ft). The perfect site for paragliding!

The River Orne meanders its way through the rocks, offering a genuine playground for kayakers. And on the ridges and the faces of these Norman "mountains", you can also try your hand at climbing, hang-gliding, hiking... The Clécy dells also offer the ideal setting for a round of golf.

The perfect destination for a breath of 100% fresh country air.

Take a stroll through Clécy; enjoy lunch on the waterfront before heading down the Orne aboard a canoe. And if you fancy a family pedal boat tour, then simply head for Pont d Ouilly or La Vey in Clecy.
In the summer months, have fun at the open air balls on the waterfront in Pont d'Ouilly, where locals and tourists intermingle in a natural and friendly atmosphere.
The Pays de Falaise is home to many tourist attractions and historic sites, the flagship of which is undoubtedly William the Conqueror's castle.
The child in every one of you is sure to revel in the miniature railway at Clécy and the automaton museum in Falaise.

For your next family holiday in the country, take to Suisse Normande and the Pays de Falaise: a genuine breath of fresh air amidst nature's best!
Roche d’Oëtre is a natural site in Swiss Normandy and is one of the most prestigious panoramic viewpoints in western France. It is a protected site located in the oldest mountains in Europe : the Armorican Massif.
