Location description from owner
The Basse-Normandie region
Bellefontaine is a quaint village with a very pretty church. The walks around the area itself and through the village are lovely. There are wonderful views on the walk turning left after the church. The waterfalls (cascades) at Mortain (5 mins drive east) are excellent and there is a beautiful walk there too. (Follow signs to the Grande Cascade and the Petite Cascade). There are picnic tables available at the base of the waterfalls. The Petite Chapelle is high up on the hill above Mortain with great views. Fosse Artheur (20 mins drive east) is a delightful spot by a river. There is a lovely walk around a large and beautiful lake, with a play area at one end. Also there are woodland walks and alongside the river itself. Horse riding can be arranged there too. Granville and Jullouville are good coastal resorts (approx 40 mins drive west). For a quieter beaches head south of Carolles (also approx 40 mins drive west) which itself is very pleasant. The town of Avranches en-route is also worth a visit. A particularly quiet beach is found by driving via a village called Genets - then follow the horse riding signs. The Normandy beaches north of Bayeaux are of course wonderful for historic war museums, etc. The Village Enchante; family entertainment park is fairly nearby and offers a wide range of outdoor adventure and leisure facilities for small children through to adults. It is normally open from Easter to the end of August daily from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (including bank holidays). The local pottery near Ger called the Musee Regional de la Poterie (15 mins drive north-east) is sign-posted from the main road as you go in to Mortain and is worth a visit. The Maison de la Poire (Pear Museum) and cider farm at Barenton (15mins drive east) is very interesting. An open air swimming pool / lido is at Mortain (5 mins drive east) open in the summer. The indoor swimming pool situated on the north side of Vire is superb. (30 mins drive north). Go-karting is close by on the way towards Mortain - great fun. The bell foundry at Villedieu-les-Poeles (40 mins drive north-west) is excellent. There are also several museums in the town worth seeing. The Avranches Scriptorial (40 mins drive west) is where the manuscripts from Mont St. Michel are exhibited; they are fascinating. At Fougeres (45 mins drive south-west) there is a wonderful old chateau (castle) which is well worth a visit with good cafes nearby. There are golf courses at Lake Dachee near Vire (25 minutes drive north) and at Granville (40 minutes drive west towards the coast).

St Hilaire du Harcouet (25 mins drive west) is an interesting town with a beautiful church, a lake and river walk - with a large play area, putting, crazy golf, etc. The market is on a Wednesday morning in the centre and is very extensive. Villedieu-les-Poeles (approx 40 mins drive north-west) has a market on Tuesday mornings, and there are also the museums, etc. Bayeaux (approx 1 1/2 hours drive north) - the tapestry is wonderful and the town is full of interest. Mont St. Michel (approx 1 hour drive west) is very interesting and well worth a visit. it usually gets busier there in the afternoons. Caen is well worth exploring (1 hour drive north-east). Mayenne (45 mins drive south-east) is a lovely old town with boat trips available on the river. Clecy (45 mins drive north-east) is good for canoeing and river walks – with Falaise nearby, having William the Conqueror castle to visit.
