The Normandy region

Lower Normandy is famous for the production of cider, Calvados and cheeses. The most famous cheese is Camembert, renowned worldwide.

The area is a mixture of rural countryside, small and large towns, with Caen being the regional capital, and beautiful coastline, where the World War 2 landing beaches are visited by people from around the world.

La Ferte Mace

The area around La Detourbe is quite rural, with many empty roads for relaxing excursions for sight-seeing. There are several chateaux and castles nearby to visit. The oldest is William the Conquerer's castle at Falaise.

La Detourbe is situated at the edge of the Normandie Maine Regional Parc, which contains several large forests and woods, giving plenty of opportunity for walking and picnicing.
