With Norman Switzerland to the north and the Alpes Mancelles to the south, Orne is a green department where you can live well and recharge your batteries. Abbeys and priories, including the famous Belleme Abbey, a lot of riding centres, golf courses and the spa town of Bagnolles de l'Orne enable everyone to find something they like. Despite the relative proximity to Paris and the journey time of 3 hours, property in Orne is very affordable. You can choose between a maisonette on the banks of the river, in Domfront, land in Alençon, or an apartment in Bagnoles de l'Orne for your well being. If you are keen on horses and your budget will allow it, why not a ranch on the outskirts of Argentan?
