Prices include all bed and bathroom linen, English/French TV and internet access. We can also accommodate 1 well behaved dog in the gite. We have a Jack Russell terrier who is very happy to have friends to play with. Our garden is fenced and the dogs are free to run and play. We are situated around 5k from the pretty village of Lonlay l'Abbaye and mid-way between the towns of Domfront and Flers. Lonlay has an abbey (circa 1071), town square and is surrounded by the Normandy countryside. Lonlay has a mini-supermarket, Deli, boulangerie, hairdresser, cash machine, post office, doctor, vet, pharmacy, bar, restaurant and a self-service petrol station. You can buy delicious locally made ice cream, cider and beer direct from the farm and biscuits from the Biscuiterrie both in Lonlay. You can of course visit cider and calvados producers in the local area if that is your particular tipple.There are historical sites in the area and we are within easy driving distances of the D Day beaches, walking and cycling tracks and the famous UNESCO world heritage site of Le Mont St Michel.More

About the neighbourhood
Lonlay-l'Abbaye is a commune in the Orne department in north-western France, situated mid-way between the towns of Domfront and Flers. It has an abbey and town square and there are walks accessible from Lonlay where you can see the surrounding scenery including the local viewpoint Fosse Arthur. If you want night life and shopping then this is not the area for you but if you want to relax and unwind come and join us.
Getting around
This area of Normany is very rural and public transport is not readily available. You really need a car to be able to get around. Cyclists have stayed with us and they commented on how easy it was to cycle on the roads as traffic is very light.
