Local Attractions

Most of the larger villages and small towns have a market day selling local produce, clothes, toys etc, very much like the English markets which are rapidly disappearing.

The nearest are Mortain, about 5km away which has a market on Saturday, Ger about 8km away on Thursday, and Soudeval which is about 12km is on Tuesday.

At Mortain there is the Grande Cascade, the highest waterfall in West France. It isn’t a French Niagra, but it is a really pretty place , a steep path down into the valley with a footbridge over the river to a small island with a seat, the footpath goes on to the Petite Cascade a little further downstream.

L’ Abbaye Blanche is close by, founded in the 11 century it has survived many wars and conflicts ( the latest 75years ago) fairly unscathed. It was last used as a monastery in 2011.

Mortain has the ruins of a castle (we haven’t visited it yet, but it is visible from the road overlooking the town) which seems to have been built by Sir Guillaume de Mortain, who was nasty enough to be called Guilluame the Cruel, he must have been pretty bad to get that name in the 10th century.

La Petite Chappelle is a small church situated on a ridge overlooking Mortain, and was the scene of a decisive battle in 1944 (see 1944 page). Follow the signs from Mortain to find it and there is a parking area and a pleasant walk to the chapel, there are picnic benches along the way. The view from the chapel is stunning, away out over the valley and on a clear day it is said that you can see the Mont Saint Michel about 25 miles away.

The drive to the Mont Saint Michel is about 30 miles through the beautiful countryside, but get there early as it is extremely popular and can get crowded. Walking across the causeway the monastery fills the view and is fascinating to walk around, audio guides are available.

There is a go-cart track about 4km away, well out of ear-shot, and La Village Enchanté, is about 8km. This has lots of activities including farm animals, a zip wire, and a canopy rope bridge in the trees.

The Normandy D-Day beaches are about 60 miles away, and the Bayeux tapestry is worth a visit, you will pass Bayeux on the way to the beaches .

St Mere-Eglise (see links) has a fine museum dedicated to the D-Day landings and is a lovely little town, not too touristy, and they have had a dummy of a parachutist hung on the church tower for years to commemorate an actual event.

St Hilaire du Harcouet is about 15 miles and has a nice unspoiled town centre (and a great market) as has Avranche, about 30miles away.
