Flers is a French commune situated in the northwest of the department of Orne, in the region of Basse-Normandie. It used to be a hub for linen before it turned to imported cotton and is today a lively market centre for the neighbouring rural population. This place is also a ville fleurie' (flower town) and has obtained two flowers in the nationwide competition of flower towns and villages.
Flers presents visitors with a castle that dates from the 16th and 18th centuries which contains a museum displaying ancient and 19th century paintings and sculptures, as well as arts and crafts including furniture and objets d'art. The castle is presently also the seat of the municipality.
Further points of interest accessible by rental car are the neo-Romanesque Saint-Jean Church, which constructed between 1858 and 1865, and the neo-Gothic Saint-Germain Church, built in 1910. The covered market dates from 1851 and was a granary in earlier times.
The surrounding countryside is also well-worth exploring, particularly if you have a hire car. To the east of Flers lies Vimoutier, which may be small but is world-famous as the hometown of Camembert cheese. Alenon is renowned for lace-making and its Muse des Beaux Arts et de la Dentelle showcases everything you ever wished to learn about it. Domfront is located south of Flers, with the remnants of an 11th century keep offering stunning panoramas of the valley.
Public transport in and outside of town is limited making it complicated for tourists to get around. Travellers should arrange car hire online before leaving home to make their vacation in Flers as enjoyable as possible.
