The Normandy / Orne region
Basse-Normandie is predominantly agricultural in character, with cattle breeding the most important sector (although in decline from the peak levels of the 1970s and 1980s). The bocage is a patchwork of small fields with high hedges, typical of western areas. Haute-Normandie contains a higher concentration of industry.
Normandy is a significant cider-producing region, and also produces calvados, a distilled cider or apple brandy. Other activities of economic importance are dairy produce, flax (60% of production in France), horse breeding (including two French national stud farms), fishing, seafood, and tourism.
The Mantilly area
The village of Mantilly is only .7 of a mile away. It has most of the facilities you will need including a garage, hairdresser, butcher, baker, pattiserie, general store, bar, and church etc. Passais Le Conception is a little larger with two garages etc. plus banks.
Other places worth visiting are St. Framboult, a flower village which has in the past won the gold medal as the best in France, and Bagnole de L'Orne, which is a spa town of much charm.
Local activities include walking, cycling, golf, tennis, watersports, horse riding and fishing.
