In c? Heart of the Grove, just steps from the Suisse Normande, Flers is a city that claims more than ever its place as the second attraction of the department. Quality accommodation in a quality environment: this is probably the main asset of a city that combines cultural vibrancy and economic vitality in c? Ur 3rd employment area of Lower Normandy. In all areas expressed the dynamism of the city, a martyred city that has suffered many bombings in 1944, but has managed to rebuild and modernize maintaining a beautiful architectural heritage.

And lively trading town, located at the intersection of the axes Paris-Caen and Granville-Laval, Flers is known by the importance of the events taking place.
