Villedieu-les-Poêles, experience living heritage

In Spring, the countryside is mainly a canvas of browns from freshly ploughed earth and bright yellows of rapeseed flowers, adorned with cherry blossom from the trees lining the fields. In Autumn, meanwhile, the trees take over and are in full splendour. This is the heart of Normandy, with its woods and rolling hills, where a combination of Black and Normande Cattle roam and graze, producing milk of the highest quality; Villedieu-les-Poêles is brimming with history, like a precious stone enveloped by the twists and turns of the meandering Sienne River.

Villedieu itself has a bustling and diverse atmosphere. Around the town there is an abundance of workshops working with metals and other more modern materials, perpetuating and transcending their rich history and offering a rich blend of the different arts and crafts practised in the 21st Century. This is an area with a promising future, combining heritage, authenticity and a creative and industrious way of life.
