as is Le Mans and it's stunning cathedral and cobbled streets. Sit outside one of the many bar/restaurants and take in atmosphere

of being in this beautiful, friendly area of France.

Nearby are open air swimming pools, historical villages, museums, mini golf, golf and the zoo at Le Fleche.There is a wonderful golf course at nearby Sarge-les-le-Mans, situated in the countryside just minutes away from the Plantagenet city (Le Mans).

This 18 hole golf course is a picture of nature and although relatively flat it is varied with challenging fairways. After your game, sit on the terrace or visit the restaurant for lunch. Open all year round.

For the motor enthusiasts there is the famous Karting track, motor museum and race track.

Further information can be obtained on the web site

Le Mans

Le Mans where they hold the 24hour race each year usually June, and the 'classic' which is held every other year usually July.. There is also the adjoining

motor museum which is well worth a visit. The 'old city' with it's cobbled streets and stunning cathedral are also a must. Take the 'park and ride' tram which takes you directly to the 'old city' and visit the shops and markets.

The Loire Valley sometimes known as the valley of the kings was a special place for France's kings and nobles who came to the

area for hunting. They made it their foremost pleasure garden, where they lined it with stunning palaces and chateaux of great


The Loir of which the Sarthe is a region, is a much more intimate, green valley with 1000 year old churches, cave-villages and

stunning panoramas.

Take a day away and visit Paris or the beautiful Chartres where you can gaze in wonder at the dazzling glass and the

intricate carvings of the most complete of all medieval cathedrals.

Enjoy some of France's finest wines on a tour of the restaurants and vineyards of the Loire.

In short, this is one of the most beautiful unspoilt areas in France.

"A rural gem with history"

When we found Le Chateau on the Holiday Lettings website we thought we might have found a gem, when we got there we knew we had. We were welcomed by the owners Jill and Ivan who showed us round and left us to it having answered all our questions about practical matters. Another reviewer who said that the house is like a Tardis was absolutely right. One room seems to lead to another and most of the rooms are huge. The kitchen has everything you need with a gas hob and electric oven; the dining-room is oak-beamed with a refectory-style table; the two first-floor bedrooms are huge with one having a 'walk in' fireplace more oak beams and a rug-covered undulating stone floor. The three top floor bedrooms are light and spacious and for us provided a perfect 'home' for three teenage boys. The three floors are accessed by a medieval oak staircase. If you are looking for a house with a sense of history this is it and it was no surprise to learn that it was built as a home by an early bishop of Le Mans. (Now, however, it boasts two bathrooms and four inside loos!) Outside to the back and side is a lovely large private garden which overlooks fields. It makes a perfect place to play boule (provided) or enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a patio table where we ate almost every evening and enjoyed the bottles of wine left as a generous welcoming gift.

Chemire-en-Charnie is a quiet rural village but lies within easy access of Loue (about four miles) where there are shops and three supermarkets. To the north, just beyond Sile de Guillaume (spelling?) is 'La Plage' a wood-surrounded lake with a sandy beach, safe swimming, kayaking and bicycle trails (bikes to hire, though not always in the best condition) which provides more than enough to do for the most energetic youngsters. There is also good off-road walking for those with less energy. Slightly further afield is the fortress village of Sainte Suzanne which deserves its reputation as one of the most beautiful villages in France and 30 Km to the east is Le Mans which is easily accessed via the city's park & ride tram system. The medieval town is spectacular and for those with a shorter sense of history the motor museum at the Le Mans racetrack is fascinating. There is a go-cart racing track close by (Alain Proust circuit) which is very well supervised (and expensive).

As the owners say, the house isn't suitable for children or those who cannot manage stairs easily but with that caveat, we would recommend it unreservedly.

We were so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at 'Le Chateau'and we appreciate you taking the time to send a review. We thank you for your
comments and hope to welcome you and your family again sometime.

"I would like to say it was home from home ,but my home is not as a patch on The Chateau"

The Chateau just got better and better as we discovered the rooms and the gardens . I must say it was not how I imagined a chateau and was a little disappointed from my first impression of the front … More
