Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2014

We had the most fantastic week here. The property is stunningly beautiful. The attention to detail in every room is second to none. It's very peaceful without being isolated. The kitchen is very well equipped and spotlessly clean as was the whole property. There is a washing machine which was a great bonus. The owners are at hand if you need them for anything but if you don't then you won't see them as their garden is tucked away so you have the privacy of your own beautiful garden to yourselves. The location is ideal too as its within reach of so many lovely places to visit. Lassay les Chateaux is stunning and Bagnoles de l'Orne is a short drive away and has a beautiful lake and also many restaurants. Vitre is highly recommended. It has a Chateaux/castle and the streets reminded me of the best parts of York but without the crowds. I really can't say anything negative as its as close to perfect as a holiday home can be. The owners Sandra and Paul are truly lovely people. I...

We had a wonderful week! We cycled all week on lovely roads with amazing scenery, then came back to the most peaceful relaxing place we have ever been. The house is a pleasure to be in, such a peaceful location. You are chilled out the moment you park in the barn. Sandra and Paul have made this even better than home from home, there really are no negatives! We can't wait to come back!

Getting around
A car is essential for travelling around this area but the roads are so quiet and traffic free that it actually makes driving a real pleasure. If you stay off the main roads you can find some wonderful places to stop for lunch, beautiful villages and as the Mayenne department has the highest number of privately owned Chateaux some magnificent buildings tucked in the most unlikely places!

How to get there
Airport: Rennes 1 hr 30 mins hours drive. Dinard, Nantes, Tours 2 hour drive.: 75.8 mi
Railway: Laval : 32.9 mi
Ferry: Ouistreham: 82.6 mi
If travelling from Calais or Dieppe a stop-over at Honfleur is a real treat - harbour town with pretty houses, quirky shops and a lovely place to enjoy lunch in the many top quality restaurants. The added benefit is you can avoid the motorway and enjoy the beautiful countryside before you even arrive on your holiday.
Travelling from Caen is a much shorter journey once arriving in France so you can make time to explore the Normandy beaches and WW2 museums or explore the UNESCO designated town of Bayeux and visit the world renown tapestry.
