The Normandy region

This region of Normandy, the Orne, is famous for its horses and it's breeding farms. The French National Stud, the Haras du Pin is only 15 minutes away and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Normandy. This year it is the setting for the 2014 World Equestrian Games cross country event. There is horse racing at Deauville and many more provincial courses, the closest being at Argentan. However there are also plenty of other attractions in the area and numerous impressive chateaux open to the public, such as Sassy. Medavy and Carrouges.

There is trout fishing available at the lakes at Le Merlerault and cycles for hire at Courtomer.

The medieval village of Sées is 18km away and is famous for its twin spired cathedral which hosts music and light shows in the summer months.

The Spa town of Bagnoles de l'Orne with a casino, thermal springs, arboretum, velo-rail (cycle powered cart), pedalos, canoeing and lots more activities on offer, also hosts many festivals during the summer months,

Alencon is also not too far away and was once the capital on Normandy. Famous for its lacework, there are two museums housing both lace and paintings. The center of the town is a lively semi-pedestrianised shopping area with many bars and eateries.

One of the prettiest villages in France is St-Ceneri-le Gerei with outstanding views from the church which also houses some 14th century frescoes.

Travelling further afield to Caen, the amusement park Festyland caters for all the family with rides for all age groups, a picnic area and eateries.

Whatever your particular interest, you will find days out to suit everyone in this region of France.


Normandy is an area with an important history and one entwined with that of Britain. William the Conqueror was born at Falaise and the castle is open to the public and provides a very interesting tour. After 1066, great Norman families had estates on both sides of the channel and most of the English aristocracy were in fact Norman. This did not stop the wars between England and Normandy which continued on and off until Normandy became a province ruled directly by Paris. There is much evidence of this turbulent history in the architecture and castles in the area.

In more recent times, the summer of 1944 marked the beginning of the end of World War II but for Normandy it was a time of destruction. The D-Day beaches are sites which mark the event of the landings with museums and exhibitions. However there are many other areas in the region that also saw battles and bombing raids culminating in the battle of the Falaise Pocket.

This year, 2014, marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy and there are many events in the region to commemorate this event and to celebrate the liberation of Normandy.
