Discover Bagnoles de l'Orne Normandie

Just two and a half hours from Paris, yet light years from the noise and bustle of the city, Bagnoles de l'Orne is an oasis of calm and greenery. The road wanders through the forest, up to the Grand Domaine, which appears as a genuine surprise — your eyes fall simultaneously on the lake, the gardens, the casino, and the wonderful Belle Époque architecture as you come round a bend in the road.

In the Normandie-Maine Regional Natural Park in Normandy, the Andaines Forest surrounds the Grand Domaine. In the Middle Ages, it stretched from Domfront to Alençon and even today, it is still very large (over 14,000 acres). Here, hikers meet autumn mushroom pickers, and according to ancient legends, you might even meet fairies...
