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.

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.

Those looking to pamper themselves whilst on holiday in a gite in Orne after a hard days walking or sight seeing, or even just for a days pampering should certainly head towards the resort of Bagnoles-de-l’Orne. Idyllically located on the shores of a forested lake, it is a great way to fully relax.

There were 16 of us (3 families) and we couldn't have been made more welcome. Nothing was to much for Jeanette and Andrew! The house was lovely and warm when we arrived with a roaring fire going in the sitting room. Nearly all of the rooms have en-suites which was such a blessing and the heated towel rails were an extra bonus. The grounds are fantastic and the house is well equipped for out door activities: even bicycles were provided! Jeanette and Andrew cooked us all a meal worthy of a top restaurant, and they arranged for a fantastic treasure hunt in the grounds for the 2 children in our group. We wholeheartedly recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a fantastic time in a larger group. The kitchen is well equipped and there is lots to do in the house for those days when the weather isn't as nice as we would like it to be! We are hoping to return next year!

It is situated in an ideal position for the town and spa ( walking possible ) but away from "tourist" hussle and bussle. Superb bakers on the doorstep with other shops near by and a beauiful little church which is lit up at night. Great selection of restaurents within walking distance. Private parking. Lovely quiet garden with picnic tables and BBQ - was ideal for relaxing after a days touring. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean with all amenities I needed - washing machine, freezer and UK TV particularily useful! Tastefully furnished to keep the character of a french cottage. The owners Lyn and Mike, could not have been more helpful. They were very welcoming and recommended good restaurants and places to visit. This is a quality property, idealy situated. Thank you Lyn and Mike for making my stay so fantastic!
