Message From The Seller

This house is perfect for create and expansive living. There have been so many joyful moments living here. Mainly because it has so much character – and because there are so many windows ,the light – thoughout the house is beautiful. The house is on three levels which not only brings charm and fascination to friends and visitors, but also makes BnB hosting easy and practical in every way. The house being situated opposite a church brings further character as the bells chime – my guests have always been amazed at how one never hears them at night. On a practical level – the house is opposite the postoffice/council office which sells bread and croissants, a (currently being resurfaced) boules pitch and – at the other end corner of the village an award winning butcher. When guests require dining or touristic experiences, legendary spa town Bagnoles de l’orne is a 15 mins away drive away and sits on the edge of regional national parklands and forests. One can also catch a bus at the tourist information centre and arrive at Paris Montparnasse with just one change!…

Large village house currently used as a B&B in the Mayenne

This renovated village house was formerly a hotel and café.  It has been completely renovated and now offers spacious, light and versatile accommodation over several levels.  There are 3 letting rooms for B&B and an increasing business.  The property would also be suitable for a large family, lock up and leave holiday home or for someone wishing to work from home.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near the Normandy and Loire Valley border in the Mayenne department in a sleepy village with a Post office, Dépôt de Pain and Butchers.  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 12 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 78km from the airport at Caen-Carpiquet, 105 km from the ferry Port at Caen Ouistreham and 187 km from Cherbourg.
