Located in the heart of the largest beech forest in France, Lyons-la-Forêt is a Norman village of charm, ranked among the most beautiful in France. It has 4 Flowers in the classification of the Towns and Villages and it is also classified Station Green.

Lyons-la-Forêt works to preserve the charm of its Norman heritage.

Built on the site of a castle built in the 12th century, the center of Lyons adopted the plan, around the old feudal clod.

The eighteenth-century halls (ISMH) are located in the center of a very lively place where alternate old houses in pink bricks or half-timbered Norman.

The Town Hall (ISMH) has preserved intact the room of "bailliage" with its decoration of court of the eighteenth and an exceptional tapestry fleurdelysée.

The ground floor with the Office of Tourism shelters witnesses of old dungeons.

Bordered by houses of which the majority has two centuries, a long street leads, near the Lieure, to the church Saint Denis (XIIe - XVIe ISMH).

Many artists have stayed at Lyons, particularly Isaac Benserade who was born there and Maurice Ravel who composed it.

In 1932, the market halls served as the setting for the comedy scene in Jean Renoir's film, and also in 1990 in that of Claude Chabrol, both entitled "Madame Bovary".

Today, Lyons-la-Forêt is a charming resort where it is good to rest, quietly in a bosky bower where hide historic and cultural sites remarkable.
