Amblie - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Calvados

Nestled in the middle of two valleys, the Thue and Seulles, this county is located halfway between Bayeux and Caen.

A little history...

The presence of man is old as evidenced by human traces back to antiquity. For several centuries, the territory is attached to the French nobility. The textile activity is developed in the nineteenth century. Water mills established along the Thue, who still operate until 1945 and treat textiles but also the grain son. After World War II, Belgian farmers settled in the territory. Spared during the Second World War, although very close to the landing beaches, Amblie assists in Caen hosting a refugee center and injured thousands of victims.
