Normandy / Maine
Welcome to the heart of the 250 000 hectare Normandy Maine park, the largest of the four natural parks of Normandy. The discovery of the territory of the Monts de Normandie and Maine gives a hint of adventure. It is situated in two regions (Normandy and Pays de la Loire) and four departments (Orne, Manche, Mayenne and Sarthe). Along the water and the paths, between groves and forests, is revealed a very wide diversity of landscapes that shelter unique fauna and flora ... Emblematic and rare species like the white footed crayfish or the pearl mussel...
On foot, by cycle, on horseback or in carriages, the hedgerow countryside where the owl nestles and the majestic forests of the Andaines, Ecouves, Perseigne and Sillé, where deer, wild boars and other black peaks or the Saint- Martin buzzard can be limitlessly appreciated
Here, the ancient stones never cease to evoke the particularly fertile history, stamped by figures such as William the Conqueror. Witness to the feudal rivalries between Normandy and Maine, many castles dot the territory from east to west. At Domfront, Lassay-les-Châteaux or Sillé-le-Guillaume, the fortresses continue proudly to defy time.
