Bagnoles de l’Orne – best place to spend autumn in Normandy

Hello! I’ve already told you about Orne during my walk at La Roche d’Oëtre in summer, and I can tell you again that the nature in Orne is incredible! So I wanted to go back during autumn, and this time I went, further south, to Bagnoles de l’Orne!

What to do in Bagnoles de l’Orne?

First of all, its city center: I invite you to stroll down the main street and its few shops. Please to make a detour to the Sacré Coeur church, just to warm up. The main street will take you to the lake where a splendid viewpoint awaits you. Indeed, against low, you will discover a park with flamboyant colors, and the casino of Bagnoles de l’Orne. The park is relatively large, so you can walk there for a while, but I only stayed near the casino.
Its town hall: it is indeed beautiful, because it’s a castle! Moreover, it’s located in the heights of the city, so you can enjoy a nice panorama of the surroundings at the same time! To reach it, you must go past the baths, and turn right at the first roundabout!
The baths, let’s talk about them: Bagnoles de l’Orne is indeed famous for its thermal spa which is the only one on the French west coast. I didn’t have time to try a treatment, but the Hotel des Thermes is worth the detour for its architecture.

Have you been to Bagnoles de l’Orne or would you like to visit it soon! Please tell me your thoughts or questions in the comment.
