The Normandy region

Orne (department number 61) is located in the region of Basse-Normandie. The department is named after the river Orne (a tributary of the English channel), which runs through it and is the only department within Normandy not to border the sea. Agriculture remains the primary economic source.

You can find out what the region has to offer in 2013 via this link.


If you like outdoors activities like walking or hiking, you are at the right place. You will enjoy Vimoutiers forests and hiking trails.

Vimoutiers is child friendly and you will find several activities and theme parks for them to enjoy.

The town is located 30 minutes away from Lisieux or Argentan, and one hour away from Alençon or Caen.

In Vimoutiers, you will discover the local products and different typical cheeses of the area like Camembert, Livarot, as well as typical drinks like apple cider, Calvados or Pommeau (apple liquor).

Just a few miles away from Vimoutiers, Marie Harel became a local hero as she made up the first cheese called Camembert.

Two statues were built around town as a tribute to her.

The legend says that the secret of the cheese recipe was given to her by a French priest who survived thanks to her during the French revolution
