Var du kommer att vara

Domfront, Normandie, Frankrike

We are lucky enough to be in the Parc Naturel Regional Normandia-Maine which covers 257,000 hectares across two regions and four departments (One, Manche, Mayenne and Sarthe). Therefore our gite is an ideal base to explore all that the region has to offer. There is something for everyone, especially travellers who have not ventured abroad before, or hardened tourers, whether it is on two or four wheels, Normandy is a great place to visit. We offer a a great stop over en-route to other destinations as well as for those travellers who want to spend some more time discovering Normandy.

For the two wheeler tourers we have plenty of undercover /secure parking for your bikes/motorbikes as well as a workshop to carry out basic maintenance or to wash your bikes down. Although our driveway is gravel it is firm enough for motorbikes.

The local area has a variety of recreational activities, forest walks, cycle /mountain bike routes, excellent road and off road biking, golf, swimming, tennis kayaking, the list is endless. However, if you want to get away from your busy life and relax , kick back, read a book, listen to music or just the bird song in beautiful surroundings Le Bas has it in abundance as well as being set in one of the most peaceful area we have ever experienced.

Normandy is a region rich in history, beautiful countryside, beaches and visitor attractions. Our Instagram account features more recommendations and some of the places we have visited (@lebaschenay).

Domfront sits in the middle of the Normandy Bocage. Bocage refers to the ancient method of raised borders around the fields that give the region its beauty. The countryside is green and undulating. It is perfect for walking, cycling and touring.

Normandy is full of easy-to-follow walking routes and cycling paths, many of which follow disused single-track railway lines. If it is beaches you prefer you have a multitude to choose from: Carolles, Deauville, Trouville , Granville and Ouistreham.

Domfront - home town of Le Bas Chesnay, with the remains of the ancient chateau, medieval churches, cobbled streets and centuries-old buildings and historical links to England. With its turrets and winding streets, Domfront offers a touch of Medieval romance to temper the raw immediacy of the WW2 sites.
Eleanor of Aquitaine – arguably Europes wealthiest, most powerful and cultured royal matriarch, and wife of Henry II, the Plantagenet King of England - had a court here in the middle of the 12th century. A hundred years earlier, William the Conqueror laid siege to its castle. Medieval barons fought in Orne over their power bases at Domfront, Chambois and Mortagne. Or against the English, who occupied the Orne capital, Alençon, for nearly a hundred years.

For the more active (or adventurous), there is bungy jumping at Clècy, canoeing at Torchamp or Thury Harcourt.

For the children there is Festyland at Caen, The Enchanted Village at Belle Fontaine, the Zoo at Jurques and the water park at St Hilaire de Harcouet. There are also excellent swimming pools at Flers, Thury Harcout and Bagnoles de l Orne.

Normandy is blessed with three world class attractions:
Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel:
The Benedictine Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel is one of the most remarkable examples of mediaeval religious and military architecture and was one of Christianity's most important pilgrimage sites from the 8th to the 18th century. The Abbey comprises a superb ensemble of clerical buildings including the abbey church, the cloister, the refectory, the monks ambulatory and the gardens of what has been known as the "Merveille" (Marvel) since the 12th century. Open all year round and open until late in the summer months.

The Landing Beaches:
A multitude of museums pay tribute to the soldiers who came ashore on D-Day. The beaches stretch from Ouistreheam to the Contentin peninsula. They had code named Omaha, Sword, Juno, Gold and Utah. There is a museum at Sainte-Mère-Eglise, dedicated to the American 82nd Airborne division. Today, you can relive their stories and the epic 1944 struggle across a network of battle sites, museums and memorials and via a series of special 'Battle of Normandy'.

Bayeux Tapestry:
Bayeux home of the tapestry and a charming medieval town. The tapestry depicts events leading up to the Norman conquest of England.

Also, well worth a visit are:
Veloscenic cycle route Paris to Mont – St – Michel:
From Domfront, you can join the cycle route to Mont-St-Michel, this section of La Véloscénie to the Mont St-Michel follows a greenway along a disused railway line going through the typical quiet countryside of the Bocage Normand. This area is reputed for its apple and pear orchards and its gastronomy. You'll pass the pretty villages of Mortain and Ducey. From Domfront, an alternative route along another greenway takes you to Flers via the charming Varenne Valley.

Caen - chateau, abbeys, museums and shopping.

Falaise - William the Conqueror's chateau and the Falaise pocket that mark the end of the battle of Normandy.

Alencon - departmental capital of the Orne .

Visitors can explore the world of needle lace at the Museum of Fine Art and Lace (Musée des Beaux-Arts et de la Dentelle) in Alençon.

Bagnoles de l Orne - the biggest spa town in western France, a charming town set around a large lake, overlooked by the casino. Hot stones, mud baths … you name it, Bagnoles has got it and in every combination. As well, of course, as the towns renowned panacea, the classic spa waters with their antioxidant trace elements. At night, Bagnoles is said to be a Town of Thousand Lights as the Casino and the town's glitzy restaurants come to life.

Carrouges - a brick chateau with moat and rare apple orchards.

If it is heritage you are seeking, meet the Percheron, Orne is the birthplace of this docile giant, which for centuries powered French agriculture and carried France s knights into battle.

Min fru och jag flyttade till Frankrike förra året efter att ha gått i pension tidigt. Vi har rest till Frankrike vid många tillfällen och äntligen valt Domfront som vårt hem.

Normandiet har så mycket historia, vacker landsbygd, skogar, stränder, sjöar, slott och så mycket mer att erbjuda för varje medlem av familjen att vi känner att det är en idealisk semesterdestination.

Vi hoppas kunna välkomna dig snart till härliga Normandiet.
