The Charentonne is a 63 km long river in Normandy, left tributary of the Risle. The river begins in pays d'Ouche , in the forest of Saint-Évroult, in the south of the Saint-Évroult-Notre-Dame-du-bois village and the ruins of the abbey where lived and died Orderic Vitalis .
The Charentonne valley, which separates the Lieuvin plateau and the Ouche plateau has stiff and wooded slopes. The bottom of the valley is covered with clayed alluvions ; it is flat and wet, flooded in winter, with beautiful natural meadows, characteristic of Normandy.
