Discover our bocage by following the small windy roads. If you let go and allow yourself to be swept away by the roads, there is always something pretty as a reward, whether you love old stones or nature.

Our countryside is full of little gems that you have to know to stop off and visit by taking a detour down a path or through a forest. Whether it is a manor, Roman church, abbey or just a really unique viewpoint, welcome to the charming countryside of our typical Norman bocage !
