Reviewed September 21, 2012

What can I say about this beautiful place the house was delightful and the owners were lovely we were welcomed into their home and I can say without a doubt to call it a B&B is an understatement it was truly home from home. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone also the food was delicious all home cooked. I am already looking forward to going again. I must just say this is the first time I have ever felt the need to write a review as it was quite exceptional.

Should you wonder where to stay if you are visiting northern France, you couldn't find a more charming place than La Louviere in st.Denis sur Sarthon just 10 kilometres from Alencon.My husband and I had the most relaxing week in this beautiful, elegant country House.The Owners are Isabelle and Alain Groult,they love their House with a passion and work tirelessly to help their guests enjoy the house, the delicious food, and the surrounding countryside.
Isabelle produces daily miracles in the kitchen. The breakfast is a delight with marvellous croissants, home made cakes, and wonderful coffee. We will definitely go again.

We ended a two week holiday around France with three nights here and although the other places were great, La Louviere was the icing on the cake.

Alain gave us a very warm and charming welcome. We had a lovely big room, with an adjoining room for our three boys. We shared a toilet and bathroom just outside the rooms, so not ensuite, but this worked very well and we felt it was certainly private enough. The grounds are very beautiful, romantic, well maintained and the pool area is lovely. The boys enjoyed the tennis court and fishing in the lake with a net.

Breakfast was wonderful - everything very fresh and delicious and the boys never mentioned that kelloggs cereals didn't feature, they were too busy enjoying the homemade cakes, jams etc. Isabelle cooked the boys a nice three course dinner one night and we had a fantastic table d'hote dinner with another couple we made good friends with.

The house is beautiful, elegant, imaginative and stylish. The sort of place that makes you plan improvements you could make to your own home! Alain and Isabelle are lovely, interesting people, they take the time to chat and have a joke and clearly enjoy being hosts. Shadow the cat and Venus the dog were a big hit with our boys - very gentle and nice natured.
Thank you so much for opening up your home and letting us in! We are already planning when we might be able to come back.

Room Tip: For families the family suite is perfect. Given the location all rooms are very quiet. You don't...

I first stayed at the beautiful La Louviere in the spring of 2010 and then again this summer August 2012. As I said La Louviere is not an hotel but to call it a bed a breakfast is underestimating this seriously beautiful house and its wonderful owners. 5 large elegant and very comfortable rooms with luxurious bathrooms en suite. Surrounded by a delightful garden that is more like a small park with a gorgeous warm swimming pool. Clean fluffy towels in abundence to wrap up in after your swim.

If you, like us, do not want to spend your evening searching for a local restaurant, you will discover that Isobelle and Alain can and will provide dinner prefixed by a delicious aperative in the stunning drawing room. Oh what a treat. Wonderful meals, everything home cooked with great style and taste. Almost everything is home made with perhaps the bread that arrives in the morning. Isobelle and Alain are the most charming and warm hosts you could hope to meet - for them nothing is too much trouble. I am so looking forward to my next visit. Jacquie

Room Tip: They are all gorgeos just let them know if you prefer 'period' or more #minimalist.

We traveled to Normandy in July 2012 and stayed at La Louvière for three nights. We wished we could stay longer at this very peaceful place. The house is beautiful, the decor is very elegant and the grounds are gorgeous. The rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable. The pool area is lovely with plenty of lounge chairs. We found it to be a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The hosts are charming and very helpful. The delicious breakfast is served either on the patio or in the beautiful dining room. We would definitely recommend this upscale bed & breakfast.

I have stayed in many luxury hotels all round the world and never before felt the need to write a tripadvisor review.

La Louviere is truly excellent, it is not really a hotel, it is more like a lovely private house, into which you are invited by charming hosts. It is a very rare combination, something I've not found anywhere else.

Lovely rooms, great grounds + pool, delicious food and fantastic hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble.

My wife & I will definitely return here.

A very special place.
A beautiful house and gardens, great location,fresh local food, great service and a genial host.
My son and I used this country house hotel as a base for the Le Mans Classic event; it proved to be the perfect choice: From massed crowds and roaring V8s to peace and tranqility in under an hour!

Room Tip: They are all good!
