Gite in Notre Dame Du Rocher, Orne, Normandy, France

Le Rupestrien is a beautifully restored stone holiday cottage that offers our guests the best of modern comfort in a character filled building dating back to the mid 18th century, situated in a peaceful rural setting in a small hamlet, right in the centre of Lower Normandy.

We offer the gite as a complete package to include all linen and towels, basic household goods and a cleaning service at the end of your stay.

This region is renowned for its beautiful countryside, quaint villages and spectacular views. It is ideal for those seeking adventure in the form of white water rafting, canoeing, or rock climbing. The abundance of hills offers challenging cycle circuits, and there are numerous walking and horse riding trails. However, it's also ideal for those of you just looking for a quiet getaway.

From here you are within easy driving distance of the Normandy landing beaches, as well as the well known historical sites of this region.

There is ample opportunity to try out the varied local cheeses such as Camembert, and sample the cider and different liqueurs made from the Normandy apples. Most of the small and quaint villages around us offer cheap and delicious meals made from local ingredients.

The Basse-Normandie region

La Suisse Normande doesn't have much in common with Switzerland: there are no ski slopes, glaciers or Alpine meadows. What this part of Normandy does have are delightful green hills, sparkling rivers, exquisite villages, rich pastures and tranquil countryside. It is one of the loveliest parts of the Duchy for a leisurely drive or a vigorous cycle ride. For walkers or canoeists, this is the region to explore.


The Suisse Normande follows the twists and turns of the Orne valley, full of quaint little towns and villages with cobbled market squares and little hotels and cafes. There are ample places to explore on foot or by cycle.

The land mark Roche d'Oetre is only 5kms from the gite- a striking crag of rock jutting up above the valley of the Rouvre, giving spectacular views - and is the nearest thing to a mountain in Suisse Normande. Thury-Harcourt is one of the busiest little tourist villages.

Pont Erambourg railway station is the starting point for a fun and unusual excursion: the Velorail de La Suisse Normande, a people powered train of open air carriages moved by cycling. You can travel almost to Clecy which has amazing countryside.

There are plenty of small bistro cafes around, most offering good value local food. Dishes made from local produce, apples and cheese are fun to try.

"What a lovely cottage"

What a lovely cosy cottage set in a beautiful French village! Excellent up-to-date facilities and fully equipped, with English TV. Easy parking and good outside facilities. Convenient one hour's drive from the ferry. Lots to do and see - so look forward to returning next year for more sightseeing. The hosts, Lyn and Peter, were extremely friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit. Would highly recommend.
