Tourism and leisure
In the heart of nature, La Haute Berterie will be the starting point for the many activities offered by the region.
Here, the hikes are done, by foot, by bike or horseback through the small paths and marked trails.
The circuits of the Suisse Normande and the Gorges de la Vire, close to the house, will lead you to discover the valleys, dug in the shiste, and the wooded hills of the confines of the Armorican Massif, one of the oldest mountains in Europe.
