The Normandy region
Situated roughly midway between Avranches and Vire, and only 30 miles from the magnificent Le Mont St. Michel, France's most visited attraction after Paris, La Fleuriais is ideally placed to explore 1,000 years of European history, from the walled city of Falaise (birthplace of William the Conqueror) to the landing beaches of Operation Overlord of WW2. All this culture can be imbibed with a glass or two of Calvados (local apple brandy - try it on fruit salad!) and a galette (savoury pancake).
Fabulous, safe sandy beaches are a little further afield: 40 mins uncongested drive to Joulouville, but well worth it if you fancy a day at the seaside.
Champrepus Zoo: 14 miles Alligator Bay (full-size alligators & crocodiles): 30miles
The River Sée (1/2 mile) is famous for the quality of its' trout fishing.
The surrounding countryside is hilly and very scenic though (almost) horizontal walks and cycling close by around Lake Dathée (9 miles), 6.1 km all the way round; golf and fishing at the same location.
