Bagnoles de l'Orne
On a site chosen for its calm natural environment, with a hot spring renowned for its healing properties, a Grand Hotel and a Casino for dancing, set in a park surrounding a lake, this was the birth of the spa town known as Bagnoles de L'Orne. The town has a rare architectural heritage and is miraculously unspoilt. The healing powers of the waters of the spring have been recognised for several centuries.
A wide range of activities is offered which include a Casino, equestrian centres, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a heated swimming pool and archery to name a few. During the summer months there is street entertainment, firework displays, trotting races. From the town it is possible to walk or cycle along 250 km of marked paths and tracks.
There is a market in the town on four days of the week and on a fifth day the market is in the town nearby.
