In Normandy, in the Orne, embark on a gourmet cruise

aboard the cruise boat VAL D'ORNE and experience an exceptional moment

What could be more romantic than a candle-lit dinner aboard a houseboat sailing silently over the dark waters of a moonlit lake with its silver reflection and whose shores are illuminated by spotlights?

And what about a pleasant day with family or friends around a tasty lunch admiring the surprising fauna and flora.

During a 2h30 cruise, the VAL D'ORNE proposes an experience full of exceptional moments of exception.

Set in Swiss Normandy on the Rabodanges lake, not far from Caen, between Flers, Argentan and Falaise, we propose an original outing on the Orne river, between cruising and discovery, a gourmet cruise, landscapes and local gastronomy.

Embark at noon for lunch or at 8 pm for dinner

and be lulled by the soft purring of our houseboat on the water.

You will appreciate the comfort of our panoramic air-conditioned restaurant and taste with pleasure the cooking of our chef who draws his inspiration in the Normandy soil. On your plates, a meticulous selection of quality products transformed into tasty dishes which oscillate between land and sea.

During your lunch cruise you will benefit from the commentry of the Commander in order to get to know the history of this reservoir r, the fauna and the flora that inhabits it as well as the technical details of the dam.

In order to reply best to your taste buds, we invite you to consult our menus and make your choice before boarding.
