Visitez la Normandie avec l'A28 Rouen-Alenšon

The Ecouves forest: benefit from the charms of Mother Nature


Within the Normandy-Maine Regional Park, this magnificent forest extends over 15,000 hectares, in a varied and hilly landscape. The forest culminates at 417 m above sea level, the highest point in Normandy which can be appreciated by a visit to the Ecouves viewing tower. The variety of tree species, the presence of red deer stags and hinds and roe deers - that you may have luck in seeing - the abundance of mushrooms during the season, will incite nature lovers to stop a while and relax amongst the tall forest trees.

When visiting the Ecouves Forest, be sure to go to the Croix MÚdavy crossroads to discover the Valois tank of the 2nd Tank Division of General Leclerc. It is a monument to the liberation of Alenšon and of the Orne Department by French troops during World War II.
