Life in the Orne

Soundsnaps is based in The Orne, in Lower Normandy, and some of the regular local attractions are featured here. 

Carrouges, famous for its chateau, is the home to the annual fête de la Chasse et de la Peche, ( hunting and fishing festival) and a small selection of images reflecting the colourful atmosphere of this major event are also included.

At Sainte Marguerite de Carrouges, the annual visit each summer of Epouvantails (straw people in many guises) occurs, and some of these can be seen by clicking on the group in front of the church

At the end of the year, the Christmas market at La Ferté Macé is typical of the region, and these atmospheric winter images are a reminder of the seasonal celebrations.
