    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    La Bergerie, a 'shepherd's cottage' is a lovingly restored farm cottage nestled in a pretty valley in several hectares of grounds and gardens next to the Lac de Rille, a large lake famous for its bird life and a popular site for fishing. The River Lathan flows through the grounds of our garden before it flows on to the Loire and the Atlantic Ocean.

    This is a small sheltered paradise for wildlife and the perfect get-away in a rural isolation.

    The cottage comprises a large sitting/dining room on the ground floor with a log stove, brand new double bed settee, dining table and chairs, and an ancient 'petrain'. There is also a separate fully equipped modern kitchen with a second log stove, washing machine, microwave and cooker. Hot water in summer is supplied f...

    How to get there
    Airport: Tours: 18.6 mi
    Railway: Saumur: 15.5 mi
    Ferry: Caen, Ouisterham: 124.3 mi
    Only three hours from Caen, you can take top quality uncrowded motorway almost all the way and although there are tolls they are not expensive.

    Alternatively take the Route Nationale which is almost as quick and gives you the opportunity to stop in numerous Norman towns and villages for a leisurely meal on your way, or to take a good cup of coffee at one of the many road side cafes and bars.

    From Calais or other northern French ports, the journey is a little longer, nearer four or five hours, but again there are excellent motorways which take you to Rouen and then the rest of the way.

    Look out for the signs for many attractive villages and ruins well worth visiting on the way. If you aren't in a hurry to get here, it is a far better way to journey and arrive refreshed.

despite the difficult start - don't follow the google maps directions, get to Breil & phone! Adrian & Sally couldn't be more helpful - even drove out to us so we could follow to the cottage. Once there, the cottage definately fit the bill for what we were after - a week of chilling out.,Having been to the area before... more

This was a perfect place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. It was so peaceful and tranquil and our family were very comfortably accommodated in the spotlessly clean newly renovated cottage and converted barn. There was plenty to do with wandering around and exploring the extensive grounds and easy walks around the beautiful lake, the younger members of the group... more
