Sourdeval and surrounding areas

Sourdeval is a pretty medium-sized town in the Manche region that is full of colourful flowers in the warmer seasons.  The surrounding area has a wooded landscape in the heart of a plain crossed by the course of the See of coastal river that flows into the sea at Mont-Saint-Michel.

Historically, the town was badly affected during Warld War II but nowadays, besides handicrafts, trade, agricultural production, the town highlights its environment and its associative and cultural dynamism. With its heritage, Sourdeval provides a pleasant stopover for lovers of green tourism, staying close to major attractions such as Mont Saint-Michel, an hour drive. Vire is 20 minutes drive away with its usual city stores and facilities.

At least 2 excellent boulangeries/patisseries who bake fresh bread and the most delightful pastries daily.  A market on Tuesdays in the town square with fresh produce and flowers, and also a livestock market.  There are several supermarkets and stores to buy food, and essentials during your stay, two banks and a fuel station.

The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
