L'Echerbaudière is situated in Northern Mayenne on the outskirts of St Denis de Gastines and close to the towns of Ernée and Mayenne. Set in over 3 acres of private gardens, surrounded by the beautiful Mayenne countryside, it is the perfect rural retreat, offering a peaceful relaxing holiday.

L'Ancienne Maison has been tastefully renovated to offer modern, comfortable, accommodation that is suitable for families or groups. It is the perfect location for those wishing to explore the interesting Mayenne region or some of the relatively nearer French tourist attractions and for those seeking leisure facilities: horse-riding, cycling, walking, fishing, golf and swimming etc, are all close by.

We stayed in the two bedroom gite and it was excellent. Spotlessly clean with all the equipment needed to make our stay comfortable.

Having stayed in a number of gites in France, this was undoubtedly the best presented property we have stayed in. There are many activities on site including games room, swimming pool, badminton and table tennis to name a few. Plenty of cycles as well, so that you can venture further afield. In the car we went to a number of... more

The pool, games room and badminton were excellent along with the well stocked DVD and book library. The owners live on site and were extremely informative about the area and only... more
