We stayed at La Maillerie with our two young children, during our Christmas break. La Maillerie is a magical place- from it's thick, green forest to it's running spring and yes, even the chickens! Our girls still talk about feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs. The proprietor, Lisa Carney was very informative, warm and welcoming. There is plenty to do, long walks, bike rides, local open markets, go-carting, great restaurants- even a bowling alley. The many memories that we have gathered during our stay, will last a lifetime. This is what France is all about to us. Once you stay at La Maillerie, you will be sure to return again. Definitely worth the trek from CDG!
