Chapelle du Petit Saint Ceneri is a commune in the Orne department next to the River Sarthe and boasts itself as one of France’s most beautiful villages. You will love taking a stroll and exploring this tranquil area of France, dotted with traditional housing, farms, and green fields.

Chapelle du Petit Saint Ceneri is named after an Italian hermit who lived here during the 8th century. When he died, a monastery was built and later destroyed by the Vikings in 903. A castle was also built here in 1044, of which only parts of the walls remain today. Be sure to ask for the way to these fascinating ruins, some of the greatest pieces of history around.

    Pretty chapel with beautiful inlays on the walls, the way of the cross is remarkable! Great place if you are in the area.

    Chapel aside, this wonderful resort is to signal to the whole, to l'Auberge des Peintres where were going to eat the painters of past centuries, for that great bridge, built into valletta between trees and houses hidden. We see well from the back of the Chapel, up high. Also the beautiful secluded Chapel in the Meadow, over the main Chapel. We would not have gone. We went in the morning, we returned in the afternoon before dinner.
