Hiking at La Roche d’Oëtre, Orne !

Hello, for the first time on the blog, I’m going to show you a part of Normandy I’ve never talked about before … the Orne! Let’s go to La Roche D’Oëtre for an 8km hike in the Norman countryside!

Don’t panic there are different hikes, so if you don’t feel like doing the 8km (Le sentier du Granite, about 2:30-3:00 walk) you have smaller circuits! For the one I did, you begin at first to go down into the valley and run along the river for several kilometers. Then you go up, passing by the cute villages with their very typical houses with thatched roof, make new friends on the way (like these 2 donkeys), discover fields as far as the eye can see, and finish with an incredible panorama on the valley and the forest, and the sense of being small compared to this green immensity.

I strongly advise you to do this walking when you are looking for a shaded area while having a nice weather.

What do you think about the place?
