The Abbaye visit proved disappointing as there were signs up saying ‘Properté Privat’, so I could only snatch a couple of photos from the entrance. Hey ho!
It’s basically disused now, and was originally a convent I think.
From there we drove to ‘La Fosse Arthour’, which was a little punctuation really and opportunity for another walk.
We parked on the hill with this view and had our lunch, then walked down the adjacent path to the village.
See our van in the background – parked up on the hill for that lovely view in the first photo
We would have peeped inside the abbey, but there was a funeral!
We had briefly called in at Domfront a few years ago, but were really pleased to get a proper visit in there today, and with lovely weather! It’s a town well worth visiting. An old ruined castle on a hill and characterful town adjacent.
There’s designated parking for motorhomes behind the Mairie, and it’s free, but without facilities, but a good stop had we needed it.
This we passed and had to turn around and go back for a closer look. Quite surreal!
The town nearby was clearly built to serve it for worker accommodation and facilities.
Was built just before the Second World War.
I could not get any closer for more photos as it was sealed off by a locked gate and the wire netting.
Tonight’s Stop – Motorhome Aire at La Ferriere aux Etangs, Orne, Normandy, Orne, Normandy
Free and quiet! We had filled up with free water at Mortain, so won’t need to buy any here at 2 Euros.
We had a pleasant walk around the lake earlier. There are only 3 other vans here and no annoying telly noise! Hoorah! That really is the only one ever annoyance regarding neighbour motorhomers, but sadly all too common a problem! At worst one takes a view and moves on!
