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.

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.

It would be a great shame to miss the fair if you are staying in a gite or villa in Orne during August.

Rustic Charm

4 of 5
We stayed with our labra doodle, Wilson at The Mill House over the New Year period, we were given a warm welcome by Jenny and her husband on arrival. Due to Storm Dylan and Eleanor, the weather was pretty appalling but fortunately the Mill House has two wood burners, one in the lounge and one in the kitchen, plus radiators in all the rooms, so we were as warm as toast. Again due to the weather, rain or wind is fine, but both together, horizontally, not conducive to being outside, even Wilson did not want to go out! We were not able to sight see as much as we had hoped, lots of reading and TV, catching up on Christmas/holiday films. There was a dog walk right beside the house, which was great, other than being quite a steep up hill drag initially, great on the way back though. This sadly very quickly got too wet for us to use, so we drove 7mins down the road to a lovely town called Bagnoles-de-I'Orne, which is a very pretty town that has a tarmac walk along the river, a god send. There are several good super markets close by to buy food. We really enjoyed our break, despite the howling gales, the house has all you want with plenty of cut wood for the burners. We found the bed a little hard for us and because we were pretty much house bound a bigger TV would have been nice but other than that it was great. We left Normandy mainly under water, it and the Mill House must be a lovely place in the sunshine.

Pretty, very comfortable and well equipped

5 of 5
Beautiful home in delightful surroundings - we loved the cosy logburner. The property had everything we needed with great decorative touches. Domfront was a lovely and very interesting town, with plenty to see and do in the area. We were very grateful for the walking maps and enjoyed many of the local walks, especially the one finishing at the biscuit factory.
