There's so much to like about orchards – the spring blossom, the summer shade, the tasty fruit in the autumn. So whatever time of year you're after a rural retreat, take a look at La Toutinière, part of an orchard in northern France’s Orne department.
Sitting pretty at the southern edge of Lower Normandy, this peaceful spot is just off the D22 road between Domfront and the village of Sept-Forges. It's about a 20-minute stroll to the latter spot, where you can admire the church, have a bite at the restaurant or set out for riverside walks along the banks of the Mayenne. Bits for the barbecue and other snacks can be picked up in Domfront, where there are several supermarkets.
The facilities back at base are on the simpler side, with just the one eco toilet and no showers. In return, though, you get plenty of room to run around or play games, use of the site's hammocks, uninterrupted rural views and, if you fancy it, daily breakfasts at the owners' cottage. In the evening, folk fond of an outdoor firepit can pile up the logs and watch them burn, while teens who aren't too impressed by such old-school ents can make use of La Toutinière's free wifi and amuse themselves on their gadgets instead.

Shopping around for châteaux to visit? Start off at Domfront (15 minutes' drive), where there's a fine medieval offering that comes with fab views over the Varenne river. There's also much to be said for the Château de Lassay (10 minutes), an impressive edifice indeed whose eight pointed towers overlook a pasture grazed by sheep.
Taking your time to explore the Orne on two wheels? For a slightly different take on the area by bike, check out Vélorail Bagnole de l’Orne (20 minutes), a five-kilometre route that runs through the pretty Andaines forest. Pedalling these bike-like contraptions along an old railway line is certainly an ingenious way to burn off some of those holiday calories…
Making La Toutinière your base while in Lower Normandy also opens up a whole range of day trips slightly further afield. Mont Saint-Michel (an hour and 15 minutes) is a must-see if you're out this way, but you might also amble around Alençon basilica (45 minutes), take in the medieval walled town of Fougères (an hour) or catch a race at Le Mans (an hour and 20 minutes).
