The Normandy region

The Normandy / Manche region

The area's climate is like the south ofEngland but a little more intense, and in the crystal clear air the sun can be strong - walking or cycling in the nearby Saint-Sever forest can be a wonderfully cool refuge! And when the sun has finally gone down, our clear dark skies mean you can sit back and gaze at the brilliant stars, bright planets,dramatic meteor showers, and the stunning Milky Way.

The region is rich in history, and has several world-class tourist attractions within an hour's drive. Caen is William the Conqueror's city (and Falaise his birthplace); Bayeux has the famous "tapestry" and a magnificent cathedral; the Scriptorial at Avranches displays the illuminated manuscripts created and collected by the Benedictine monks; and, of course,there is the island-town-monastery (and Napoleonic prison!) of LeMont-Saint-Michel itself, a world heritage site and the most visited tourist destination in Europe. The region's more recent place in world history is represented by the D-Day Landing Beaches along the northern coast between Caen and Cherbourg, the Memorial museum at Caen, Pegasus Bridge,Sainte-Maire-Eglise, and many other WW2 museums and sites.

And there is huge enjoyment to be had from the string of beautiful beachesr unning up the western edge of the peninsula, the wonderful restaurantsthroughout the area, the sophisticated shopping in Avranches, Granville and Caen, the zoos and gardens, and the magnificent countryside.

Vire

The Calvados area

Our local countryside is far from ordinary - this is Bocage country, where the"hedgerows" are beech trees farmed for firewood, grown on high narrow banks so the boundaries are actually the roots of the mature trees - bizarre and haunting when you first come across them. There is rich wildlife in the midst of the traditional farming, not just the range of birds and wild flowers but salamanders, deer, and wild boar.

The Bocage hedgerows also played a part in the area's recent tragic history -this is the scene of the Allied forces' "Breakout" from the beach-heads and the ill-fated German army counter-attack at Mortain following the Normandy landings - the tree root hedges meant the unrelenting fighting was field-to-field, and the Americans took many weeks to force their way through, with obvious devastation for the villages. The local families who lived through this terrible liberation have gone on to rebuild their villages and their communities, and re-create their farms and cider orchards

Hobbies/Activities nearby

Normandy boasts a seemingly unlimited diversity of outdoor activities. The quiet country roads, forest tracks and dedicated cycle paths make cycling an absolute pleasure in Normandy, there are plenty of places to hire bikes from too if you prefer not to take your own. As well as biking trails there are trails for hiking enabling you to explore the countryside at your pleasure.

If you have a passion for horses you will feel quite at home at Normandy, tourists are welcome to attend the numerous horse shows in Bagnoles de l'Orne or Deauville or visit the many horse breeding estates. There are stud farms and equestrian centres throughout Normandy and many of them cater to families and English speaking visitors, for you to organise horse riding for whatever plans you have.

There are around 40 golf courses in Normandy, twelve of them enjoy sea views, and several of them boast a long history having been founded nearly a century ago. The courses are all open to non-members. If you prefer water-based activities, then both water sports (including sailing, canoe-kayaking, kite surfing and wind surfing) and fishing are available in the region. Normandy is considered one of the best in France for salmon fishing and also for sea-trout.

Finally, for all those thrill seekers out there, in the heart of the countryside, near Vire, is the Bungy Jump centre. The bungy jump is done from a disused viaduct designed by Gustave Eiffel, but other activities for non-jumpers are also available at the site, including a zip wire and an adventure trail through trees.
