The busy market town of Vire has ancient roots, but it was heavily reconstructed after Allied bombing in 1944. Look beyond the present day and you’ll find remains of the 12th century fortifications built by Henry I, ruler of England and Normandy. And do try Vire’s culinary speciality – the Andouille smoked sausage.

Not to be missed

Lake Dathée is an ornithological reserve located several kilometres from the Vire, which also offers water sports (sailing, catamaran, kayaking, etc.) as well as an 18-hole golf course.

The Porte Horloge de Vire (gate house), the main entrance to the city, was constructed in the 13th century.

The "Norman Bocage"
 
The ‘Norman Bocage’, is a vast wooded area in the Calvados region, located halfway between Caen and Le Mont-Saint-Michel. A rural idyll, it blends rich pastures, rolling green hills and valleys bordered by country hedges teeming with wildlife, where you cycle through sunken lanes past farms selling local delicacies.
