Ger is a small village in the centre of Basse Normandie (Lower Normandy). It is situated in scenic countryside with many areas suitable for walking, cycling, riding, fishing or just strolling and taking in the views. We are within easy reach of good beaches (about an hour away), many historical sites and local attractions.
The village has a small supermarket, pharmacy, bakers and two restaurants one of which is attached to an English pub, The Jug & Jazz (www.jugandjazz.fr)
Ger is also home to the Regional Museum of Pottery.
This is a very pretty town with a 12th century abbey and a biscuit factory. There are guided tours of the biscuit factory and a shop where they sell their products.
La Fosse Arthour
According to the legend Arthur and Guinevere had caves on opposite sides of the river. Arthur was allowed to visit Guinevere only after sunset. One day he broke the rule whereupon a pit opened in the river and Arthur disappeared into it and, in desperation, was followed by Guinevere.
The area is a great place in which to walk, cycle or go riding. The rocks are good for climbing for both amateurs and more experienced climbers and there is a restaurant with a balcony overlooking the river and woods.
