A green vacation resort, Val-de-Saâne welcomes you with its range of hiking trails, leisure activities and the charm of its rural heritage!


A new commune before its time

The first traces of the village date back to the Gallo-Roman era.

The Saâne valley was then developed by a road linking Brittany to the maritime areas of northern Gaul.

During the Renaissance, the small village and its surroundings had to face some tragedies: an epidemic of the Black Death, and then a fire in 1740 that destroyed a large part of the village.

It was in the early 1960s that the commune of Val-de-Saâne as we know it came into being, with the decision to unite 4 communes of the Saâne valley (Anglesqueville sur Saâne, Eurville, Thiédeville and Varvannes) due to the depopulation of the villages. A new commune before its time! It is the historian Jehan le Povremoyne who will find the name Val-de-Saâne.

Green Station

Since this merger the village has continued to develop, until it was awarded the label Station Verte de Vacances in 1999 thanks to its commitment to ecotourism and the development of its leisure facilities such as the swimming pool and hiking trails.
