Message From The Seller

We have thoroughly enjoyed living in this idyllic, peaceful, countryside location.  The gardens and house are extremely spacious and have allowed us to live very comfortably whilst having enough rooms to include our hobbies.  Having the business attached to the house, has enabled us to enjoy a great relationship with our numerous guests – many of whom have now become friends.  This property has provided us with the relaxed French lifestyle we had dreamed of.

House and 3 gîtes with over 3 acres and swimming pool in the Mayenne

This 19th Century detached farmhouse has been completely renovated and divided into Owners’ accommodation (with B&B potential) and 3 attached gîtes sleeping 7, 6 and 2 people.   The current owners open for July and August and the property can be sold with its website.  The Owners’ accommodation and gîtes have all been renovated to retain character features such as exposed stone walls and beams.  They are double glazed and the accommodation is well laid out and appealing.  An extensive programme of maintenance and upgrades and redecoration has taken place over the last 3 years.  The  in-ground swimming pool and the spacious, enclosed garden are a particularly appealing feature of this property.  It is believed that the paddocks could be used for camping (subject to official agreement with the Mairie).  Viewing is highly recommended for those looking for a home and income.

The property is situated near the Normandy and Loire Valley border in the Mayenne department.  It is 53 km from Laval with its mainline train station which gives easy access to Paris and 318 km from Calais.  The renowned thermal Spa town of Bagnoles-de-l’Orne is just 9 km away and the larger town of La Ferté-Macé is 12 km.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont-Saint-Michel is about an hour and a half’s drive.  It is 105 km from the ferry Port at Caen Ouistreham and 187 km from Cherbourg.
