Remalard does have a small tourist information office located just off of the village square.
I discovered these signs as I was wandering around the village - they offer walking tours and I guess that you get the information from the tourist office.
As I said this village is located in the Perche and the scenery is stunning.
Remalard really is one of those places where you just relax, take in the scenery and enjoy good company.
There is plenty of opportunity for hiking and cycling as this is a national park!
The area is relativley flat - reminded me a lot of my home county in England - Kent.
This is the small local church in the village of Remalard, it dates from the 12th century and is still very much a working church, holding weddings, baptism and services throughout the year.
Its well worth a look around and inside - the bell tower is pretty impressive.
The crucifix is quite a common scene in this part of France, almost every little village has one and not always within the church grounds...this one for instance was set along the road between a few houses.
France is predominatly Catholic...although as always there are other religions and places to worship.
Remalard is located in the Commune Du Parc Du Perche - translated this is a National Park - called The Perche.
The Perche is a beautiful region, lots of forest and very strict regulations to keep it this way.
For instance, on one road in The Perche...you are allowed to build on one side of the road and not on the other. Personally I think that these regulations are fantastic...it means that the area will always stay stunning.
Locals can however, buy for a few thousand Euros a piece of land and use the timber - this is under the condition though that it is all replanted and kept as it was beforehand.
The Perche is an ideal area to explore, there are so many beautiful French villages located within the national park - not just Remalard. They do all follow the same kind of theme though - village square, butchers, bakery, tabac, bank and church! Lol...
Remalard is a very small French Village, there is nothing particular that would bring you here as such...there arent any Cathedrals or famous museums. Its a small place, a good place to practise your French, eat traditional food and brush shoulders with the locals.
As we were here just after Christmas all of the lights and decorations were still up, people who live in this village go in for Christmas house lights in a big way! Apparantly its like a competition!!
This is the Christmas Tree which is located in the centre of the Village square, it has small presents attatched to it! As do all the other Christmas trees that are located around the village.....unfortunatley though there arent any presents in them! Its Oasis wrapped in christmas paper! Lol
The main square in the village of Remalard is very pretty, theres not really anything to see here though, its the kind of place where you can just wander and relax taking in your surroundings.
The main square is home to a Bakery, butchers, bank, a small bar/tabac and a few estate agents!
