Ger - a potter's village

The little market village of Ger, in the Manche department of Lower Normandy, is noted for its pottery. It is also a market village, and has good facilities for its small size. Ger lies in beautiful countryside, typical of the Manche, with lush green meadows, apple orchards and forests. The ferry ports that link northern France to the UK are within comfortable driving distance making it a great location for a weekend cottage.

See the Pottery Museum and don't miss the Potter's Market

The village is small, peaceful and typically Norman, with quaint old houses and lots of green country around. The most intriguing feature of Ger is its Pottery Museum, a superb collection of old artefacts connected with the trade and a wonderful evocation of an old art. The museum showcases many locally produced pots and their uses in the past, with butter and milk churns, kitchen utensils and much more. It also traces the history of pottery way back to Neolithic times! The village, in keeping with its pottery interests, hosts a Potter's Market in the museum each August, an event that is well worth trying to catch.

Amenities available in the village

The general market happens every Thursday, with fresh local produce on sale. In addition, Ger has good shops and services and a primary school for the younger children.

Visit the island town of Mont St Michel

Lower Normandy is a treasure trove of things to do and see, with the Manche being a wonderful area for all who love the great outdoors. Its gentle, picturesque countryside of meadows, orchard and forests are perfect for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Places to be sure to see include the amazing Mont St Michel, an island town that rises up out of the sea and the mist like something utterly magical, the World War Sites, monuments and museums, and the Bayeaux Tapestry. Then there are also the beautiful abbeys and churches.

Enjoy days at the seaside or rounds of golf

Speaking of abbeys, almost on the doorstep of Ger is Mortain, a fabulous abbey town which also boasts some lovely waterfalls. The seaside too is a treat in store, with clean, sandy beaches and lively resorts to make sure that all the family can enjoy their days out. Golfers meanwhile will find themselves well catered for, with some really good courses to choose from.

How to get there

Airports to head for if you want to fly, are Dinard or Rennes. Dinard is served by Ryanair and Aurigny, while Rennes is served by Flybe. Ferry travel is a good idea, as Caen is within a short distance of your destination and the ports of St Malo, Cherbourg and Le Havre are also accessible. If you are driving you will find the village on the D36/D157 roads, with the nearest major road being the A84 auto route.
