On the way to Mont Saint-Michel, in the heart of the Domfrontais bocage
By staying at the Hotel de France in Domfront en Poiraie, you are in the heart of a small 12th century medieval town character with its castle and religious buildings, classified as the most beautiful detours in France, as well as a remarkable site of the Taste, thanks to its AOC Poiré Domfront and its AOC Calvados Domfrontais. An essential stopover on the road between Paris and Mont-Saint-Michel, Brittany, Calvados, the Pays de Loire, you are in the Domfrontais bocage, in the heart of the Orne. Pretty countryside which offers many possibilities to the amateurs of excursions with, among others the GR22, and superb strolls on a bicycle or VTT with hundreds of maintained tracks. Our hotel benefits, in fact, from a privileged location with the proximity of the greenway 100 m away (junction to the Vélo Francette, the Véloscénie and GR22). You will be able to admire, during your walks, magnificent testimonies of the past: megaliths, Roman remains. As well as these famous Norman manors which made the reputation of the region, architectural marvels convey a certain art of living.
As you move away from Domfront, you will find many remarkable sites and towns: Gorron, Ambrières-les-Vallées, Tinchebray, Vire, Flers, Mortain, Mayenne, Bagnoles de l'Orne, Falaise and of course Mont Saint-Michel !
