Is a town steeped in history dating back to the 11th Century. Domfront has several close connections with England going back centuries. There have been many military campaigns conducted from this once fortified stronghold from as far back as 1010 with many illustrious names who have lived or fought here.
The medieval town itself retains its cobbled streets, secret courtyards and half timbered houses with worn steps which sit well alongside the grandeur of the Mairies and other manor houses. If relaxing is your thing, there are many cafes and restaurants where you can try the local poiré (a cider made from fermented pear juice and traditionally drunk from a deep cup and saucer) or a galette (buckwheat pancake served with a sweet or savoury filling).
Only 1 hour from the famous D Day landing beaches and the world heritage site of Mont st Michel. Or simply explore on horse-back, on foot or on bikes, the countryside and forests for which Normandy is renowned. We have a bookshelf stocked with local information in our breakfast room. So you can plan your day over your leisurely continental breakfast.
The Normandy beaches.
Follow the history of the D-Day landings and the 'battle of Normandy'. At Arromanches you will find the 360° cinema and war museum. Visit the English, American and German cemeteries. Norman soil is the final resting place for almost 20,000 young soldiers who never returned.
Le Mont St Michel.
The long history of Mont St Michel is thought to date back to 708, when Aubert, bishop of Avranches had a sanctuary built on Mont Tombe in honour of the archangel Michael. The Benedictines settled in the abbey in the 10th century, while a village grew up below its' walls. Classified as a historic monument in 1874, it underwent major restoration work. Visitors can now experience the splendour of the abbey that people of the middle ages regarded as a representation of the heavenly Jerusalem on earth, an image of paradise. Mont St Michel has been listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO since 1979.
Home of the world famous tapestry, the Général de Gaulle museum, the battle of Normandy museum, the cathedral, the Baron Gerard lace & porcelain museum, the museum of religious art, the clock workshop, the Bayeux lace conservatory and the British cemetery. A charming old fashioned town, fortunate not to have been bombed during the war.
