Cottage near Lonlay L'Abbaye, Orne, Normandy, - Views over Countryside and Close to Pretty Village and Amenities
La Petite Maison De Pommier is a traditional stone cottage with exposed beams, wooden floors and large fireplace.

There is a large south facing patio area with outside furniture and Bar-B-Q leading onto a large garden. The property is in a small hamlet of 5 properties and is at the end of a lane with uninterrupted views across the countryside. An ideal position to explore the many places of interest or just relax and watch the wildlife and local buzzards.

The property is near one of the National Parks and there are plenty of walks and cycle routes to discover. The lakes at Larchamp, 2 miles, and Champsecret, 10 miles, offer fishing chargeable at half day or full day rates.
Fosse Arthur, 5 miles, has rock climbing and horse riding as well as forest walks, fishing and cycling.

For any motorsport fan, the cottage is 1.5 hour drive from Le Mans. If the racing isn't on the motor museum is well worth a look and the city is great for shopping and eating. Within 1 to 1.5 hours drive, the many Normandy Landing Beaches, museums and War Cemetries can be reached.
Bayeaux and Mont St Michel are each within 1 hours drive and worth a vist.
Locally, there are alot of town markets to visit offering locally grown produce, cheeses, fish, meats and hot food takeaways - we like St Hilaire du Harcourt about 25 miles from the cottage held each Wednesday morning. There are plenty of bars serving excellent "plat de jours" in the local area and good restaurants for something a bit special. If you like castles/chateaux there are plenty in the local area - Bagnoles ad Lassay le Chateau - and further afield at Falaise and Fougere are also worth a a visit.
