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.

It is in a small hamlet in a quiet, but interesting part of Normandy. We found lots to be without having to travel far. The only downside was the the WiFi. Yes, there is some, but only outside on a bench in front of the owners house. Not great when raining. Maybe an issue with teenagers ! If you are not worried by the Wifi issue then a great gite. I would stay again.
