With its rolling hills, picturebook farms and hidden villages, Normandy is one of the most beautiful areas of France. During the Summer, there are local markets, annual festivals and lots of fetes and activities for the children in most villages and towns. This is cider and calvados (apple liquor) country and there are many local farms that sell direct to the public.
Within easy reach of the Normandy landing beaches, 'Suisse Normande' with its deep gorges, kayaking and treetop adventure sports, Mont St Michel, sandy beaches, golf courses, childrens enchanted village and many cycling trails on disused railway lines, there are always plenty of activities to keep all ages out of mischief.
The picturesque village Lonlay L'abbaye is set in the valley with streams bubbling through and has, at its heart, the beautiful Abbey which still holds regular services. It has extensive grounds with an ancient but renovated cider press building.
Walk to the village and enjoy a quiet glass of wine outside the small hotel overlooking the village square and Abbey or wander down before breakfast to collect your bread and croissants from the patisserie. There is also an atm, charcuterie, boucherie, delicatessen, small supermarket, pharmacy, hairdresser and small restaurant. Or you can just relax on our deck and enjoy the views over the village.
Within just 10 mins drive, with its supermarkets, bars and restaurants, is the famous hilltop fortified town of Domfront. A walk up the main cobbled street will take you back in time with its ancient architecture and tiny shops.
A visit to the 12th century castle is a must with its far reaching views over the beautiful Normandy countryside. Visit the weekly Friday market and the biannual medieval festival with its period costumes and stalls.
The whole area is crisscrossed with walking and cycle trails and the weather is usually warm from May to Sept.
