Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Orne, France your home away from home

Orne, Normandy, the home of Camembert cheese, is a landlocked department of northern France. The department is wonderfully un-crowded, with a gentle charm, yet plenty of entertainment for family holidays and rural retreats, with beautiful rural Orne villas situated in both rural sanctuaries and charming medieval towns. This is an area which loves its horses. There are numerous shows, studs and bridle paths to enjoy, and a rich equestrian culture.

Things to do on holiday in Orne, France

The region of Bocage is a stunningly unspoilt rural region, ideal for walking holidays and rambling. There are 1,500 miles of footpaths and bridle paths across the department, crossing through deep forests, heather covered gorges and peaceful waterways. The lakes and rivers are beautiful to swim in, but probably only during July and August when the temperatures are suitable!

There is a range of important historic fortresses to explore from any of the self catering Orne villas, especially Domfront and Carrouges Castles. The Orne countryside is steeped in the legends of Camalot and King Arthur, and there is even an Arthurian hiking route.

In France we've found a huge variation in the comfort and quality of holiday rental accommodation. We've come to the conclusion that English-owned properties are often better (or at least better suited to us). This is particularly the case when the owner uses the property themselves So it proved with Les Challonnières. This place is brilliantly well furnished and equipped with nothing left wanting. There are super comfy and large sofas in a spacious lounge with a glorious fireplace. The kitchen has every pot, pan and gadget you can think of. The pictures on this site are a fair representation of how the property looks. The bedrooms are smallish (they have been created in the roof space with dormer windows) and the main is unusually accessed through a very low doorway over 3 steps to get over the roof beams. There is an ensuite shower room which is small but nice. There are two sofabeds on the mezzanine outside the main bedroom, The other proper bedroom is access by its own staircase from behind the kitchen. Kids will probably love the idea of benig in their own space. There is a 2nd large bathroom on the ground floor with bath. The front gardens are shown in the pictures and we spent quite a lot of time relaxing there. The gardens front on to a small single track lane, but there is hardly any traffic and only one neighbour. The main road 1/4 miles away can be heard a little but it doesn't spoil relaxation. There is also a large back garden which I don't think is shown in the pictures. This is surrounded by woods and is again very peaceful. We couldn't have been happier with the cottage and hope to return. The area does not have much on the doorstep in terms of towns to visit/things to do unless you make your own fun with walking/bikes. But one can travel a little further and find enough to enjoy. This worked for us as ours was a short trip and we did not want to travel further from the port on this occasion (atypical of our French trips). Lonlay-l'Abbaye is very close, small but pretty. Domfront is worth a short wander. The church in the centre of the old town is a real surprise. Also consider Lassay-les-Châteaux (a bit further) if going that way. We also visited Bagnoles-de-l'Orne on market day which was not really our cup of tea, but check it out on Streetview if interested to get an idea.

June met us at the property and showed us round. We had taken our Bassett hound with us and he had treats provided, towels, bowls and even poo bags. June had provided baguettes, pate, cheese, milk the list goes on and even a lovely bottle of wine,what a way to start a holiday. The gite was extremely comfortable and very well equipped, absolutely nothing needed. The BBQ area was excellent as were the sun loungers and peaceful surroundings. Lots to do nearby with or without your four legged friend. Our Bassett hound had a wonderful time with June's two dogs, Molly & Henry. An outside area where you could play table tennis, enjoy a beer and listen to music was an added extra. The hospitality of both June, her husband Andy & not forgetting Molly & Henry was five star. We most definitely will be returning.

We were travelling with our Australian nephew & neice and their 3 young children and we wanted to introduce them to rural France. We were very late arriving but Tina had ensured that there was shopping and supper waiting for us which really was going the extra mile with customer service and we were so very grateful for it. Fabulous location with stunning views, large garden, heated pool and dining terrace make the outdoor space perfect for a family holiday. Tina is a talented cook and we really enjoyed her delicious meals in the grand dining room, and Boe the resident historian was kind enought to take us on a tour of the historic grande maison! We felt very priviledged. Plenty to do in the area, great cycling with the loaned bikes, forest hikes, Normandy beaches, Castles aplenty and glorious food, all washed down with local cider and lashings of wine. We loved every moment, thank you so much Tina and Boe!
