About the neighbourhood
Situated in the Mortainais region of Normandy, this is an ideal base for walking/cycling holidays, with miles of unspoilt bridleways to explore.
There are fabulous restaurants ranging from the very exclusive at 75 euros a head, to the great value 4 courses for around 12 euros, usually including wine!
Horse riding and karting are both available locally.
Heated swimming pool at Mortain.
The waterfalls and Abbey at Mortain are both worth a visit, as is the Fosse Arthour - allegedly the resting place of King Arthur!
