If you are travelling for business or pleasure please choose from our selection of self catering accommodation in Argentan. Argentan is located in the Orne department in northwestern France, in Lower Normandy. Argentan is an old Roman town built along the Orne River, that continued to grow during the Middle Ages. It was the site of the Battle of Argentan in 1944 during the Second World War. This battle was a level in the popular WWII video game Call of Duty 3. Lace has been made in Argentan from the 17th century, when Louis XIV’s minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert founded the lace industry. Characteristic of this lace is a net background consisting of a large hexagonal mesh, the six sides of which are worked over with buttonhole stitching. Flower patterns are similar to those of Alençon, 25 miles away, but are more solid-looking than their Alençon counterparts. Argentan lace making declined after the Revolution but was revived briefly in the 1870s. The town is 180 km northeast of Rennes, 133 km southwest of Rouen and 100 km north of Le Mans.
