Tennis, golf, kayaking, horse-riding, swimming, etc are all available in the area.

The Normandy landing beaches, the Bayeux tapestry, and even Mont St Michel all make a pleasant full day excursion. Monet's House and Gardens at Giverny, and even Paris are easily accessible for full day excursions.
Horse racing at Deauville La Touques and Clairefontaine are always popular in the summer months, with free pony rides and candy floss for children as well as a play area, all within a short distance of the paddock and finishing post !There is even a child-minding service.
The Cerza zoo and wildlife park at Moyaux / Lisieux is an enjoyable day out for both adults and children, as is the eco park, Eeana.
Adults may prefer a calvados tasting at the oldest distillery, Busnel, in Cormeilles, or the more well known Père Magloire in Pont l'Evêque.
