Locally are miles of old railway tracks to walk and cycle on, forests, day trout and carp fishing. Visit medieval castles and fabulous beaches. Visit the Calvados and cider farms. If you fancy a day in Paris, you can leave your car in Flers 18 miles away and take a train to the centre of the capitol. The famous Le Mont-Saint-Michel is only 34 miles away, enjoy the sophistication of the walled town of Saint-Malo with its street performers just 62 miles from the cottage and the famous Le-Mans 24 hour race track 90 miles from your holiday base. There are many more WWII sites around the Normandy area and these can be easily taken in on day trips. Information pamphlets for where to go and what to see are available at the cottage.
