The very kind and generous owners, Debra and...

Merci pour vos gentils commentaires. Le chalet n'a jamais été décrit comme un «Hobbit maison» avant, mais il a quelques poutres basses - les gens étaient évidemment plus courte en 1534 qui était quand il a été construit. Debra. Thank you for your kind comments. The house has never been described as a 'Hobbit house' before but it is true...

About the neighborhood
The house is 1km outside the village of Thorigne en Charnie, the area is quiet and the cottage has open views of the local countryside. The garden is completely fenced with ample parking for 4 cars.
We have some fabulous local attractions - all details are in the cottage separated into things to see within half an hour and further afield. Most people that come to stay for 1 week wish they had come for longer - maybe that is why so many of our guests return year after year.
Getting around
The roads in France are great, the motorways are very well maintained and easy to use. Your definitely need a car though.
