Perrou is situated between the medieval town of Domfront and the spa town of Bagnoles de L'Orne.

Domfront's fascinating old quarter stands high above the surrounding countryside giving the most wonderful views of the bocage. The cobbled streets and the little shops and restaurants together with the ruins of the castle and the 'donjon' make it well worth a visit.

By contrast Bagnoles de L'Orne, is a spa town of 'La Belle Époque'. Its elegant houses are built on the slopes surrounding the lovely lake on which it is centred. The spa here is famous for its thermal treatments, which are said to aid conditions such as rheumatism. Here also you will find many restaurants and bars, as well as a racecourse, golf course and casino.

Keen walkers will be delighted by the endless possibilities for walks in this area, in particular, immediately behind the village is the enormous Foret d'Andaine. This is not only a walker's paradise but is also a splendid area for those keen on wildlife, as the forest is home to red deer, fallow and roe, as well as wild boar. Red squirrels and a huge variety of birds can be observed both in the forest and in the garden. In the autumn the forest is famous for its mushrooms.

If you have an interest in plants and gardens Roderick will be happy to chat to you about the different species of trees flowers and shrubs in the garden. We also have an open field for your own family games.
