It owes this unity to the beautiful Andaines and Ecouves forests with their occasionally rugged terrain. The bocage, pear orchards and fertile plains around Argentan, Sées and Alençon form a landscape with character, generously watered by marshes, rivers and lakes. Sport, leisure and exploring along hiking trails, are available at centres in the countryside and at the Maison des Métiers. Find out more at the Maison du Parc de Carrouges. Don't miss the Normandy-Maine Regional Natural Park museum at Carrouges.
