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.
