Itinerary

St. Lô is easily crossed along the quays on the banks of the Vire.  There is a clear connection with the SNCF train station, very close by.  The towpath links up with the even greenway upon leaving the town and snakes its way down the length of the Vire with no challenges up to the outskirts of Condé-s/Vire.  You will need to connect with the road if you wish to go into the centre of Condé.  Numerous stopping points along the greenway.

The ‘Bocage normand’
 
Just south of the marshes the landscape has a character all of its own: lush meadows, sometimes planted with pear and apple trees, and woodlands, divided by thick, high hedges, all intersected by deep, quiet lanes. The area is rightly famous for its dairy products – particularly its cream, butter and cheeses.

 

 

 

 

 

La Vallee de Vire
 
As it winds its way seaward, the River Vire carves through the underlying siliceous rocks: towpaths border most of the river between Vire and St-Lôits, providing easy access to a dramatic landscape of rolling hills and spectacular gorges. At Torigni-sur-Vire, the Château de Matignon displays a fine collection of tapestries.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gastronomy of Vire
 
The Vire valley is not alone in France in boasting a stupendous selection of speciality foods, but no one should pass through without sampling some of the local gastronomic delights on offer in the roadside cafes and restaurants - notably dairy and beef – while ‘andouille’ is a traditional beechwood-smoked pork delicacy.
