The Pays de la Loire region
We are located in the North West of France, a very direct 10 minutes of the A28 motorway. We are 20mins south of the world famous city of Le Mans, synonymous for it's Motor Racing (home of the 24hr Endurance Race). 40 mins north of Tours, from where you will find yourself at the centre of the' Valley of kings' with 57 UNESCO Châteaux to be visited.
We are in a lovely quiet country spot, surrounded by hectares of national park, dappled shaded networks of pleasant woodland trails for walking, cycling & trekking. Just 2km from the local town. Amongst hillsides of vineyards & sunflowers, picturesque villages along the banks of the rivers, so quintessential of the region, many locally classified 'France's Most Beautiful Villages'. We are only accessed via a long private drive with no neighbours to disturb the tranquillity.
Our local town of Le Grand-Lucé is a charming château town. It has a lovely cobbled square in front of the château gates with several coffee shops, bars, boulangeries and a charcuterie. There is a supermarket in the town also, a Post Office, pharmacy, doctors, banks, butchers and a weekly market. A few km's down the road are the lovely villages and towns along the banks of the River Loir itself, La Chartre sur Loir for example. Wine tasting, brocantes and vide-greniers (car boots) most weeks. Only 12km away from the lakes at Marcon, for the beach & water sports, plus literally on the doorstep are the 280km of cycling and walking trails in the Forest of Bercé.

"Dans un coeur de verdure, un endroit incontournable"
Un accueil chaleureux des propriétaires, un gite agréable, très bien équipé et ouvert sur un petit espace privatif pour les repas et les siestes en plein air.
Très bien situé pour satisfaire les goüts et les envies de tout le monde.Entouré de charmants villages et à quelques kilomètres du Mans où se côtoient les amoureux des vieilles pierres, les gourmets en quête de bonnes tables et les joyeux qui aiment faire la fête.
Un grand Merci à Lise et Cyrille sans oublier leur grand garçon Lucas, pour leur simplicité, leur gentillesse et leur dévouement pour nous satisfaire.
C'est avec plaisir que nous reviendrons!!!!!!!

"What an amazing place!!!"
This was my first time in France and I loved it. The owners made me and my family very welcome and the barn was so homely and comfortable. The views were breathtaking and we had everything to hand. The owners recommended some great places for us to visit which was very helpful. It was home from home but with much better weather!! Loved it and would definately go back again
