Gorron is a peaceful and pretty little market town that lies in the unspoiled and traditional Mayenne department. Technically, according to modern boundaries, the town is situated within the Pays de la Loire region, but in many respects Gorron considers itself Norman, and certainly the atmosphere and character of the town is typical of Normandy.
Gorron is a pretty town with a very traditional air. The stone cottages that make up most of Gorron are attractive, and, in summer, bedecked with spectacular arrays of flowers, so that all around there is a glorious blaze of colour. Gorron is made even prettier by the River Colmont and the lake that is formed from this, which makes a very picturesque addition to the town and adds to the feeling of being in a peaceful natural environment.
