Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Les Parillers is a longere - a long farmhouse.
It has all the conveniences of modern living and is ideal for a family who enjoy country life. It is also a heaven of peace and tranquility for those who just want to get away from city life to relax by the pool, take a walk in the park or just watch the birds and squirels.
The property in parts dates back to the tenth century, when it was part of a much larger farming estate. There is still a large section of the moat which once surrounded the castle. Saint Menele was born on this estate in the 6th Century. There is a small church just across the fields built in his honour.

|Further details outdoors||
Set in over four acres of private parkland, teaming with wild life. This is heaven for the country lover who can watch the birds all day. There is a wide range of plant life and trees to be enjoyed all year round, including a selection of fruit trees and vines. Some of the wild life we have encountered include; squirrels, frogs, deer, hedgehog, rabbits, owls, wren, woodpecker, cuckoo, ducks, buzzards and much more. But you need to be quick or very patient to catch them on camera.
Far enough from the regular tourist trails, yet within a short drive of the many attractions of the famed Loire Valley. The Loire - Sarthe region offers endless possibilities for family fun visits.
We provide bed linen and towels and electricity free of charge. We also provide some basics in the kitchen that you might not think of when your doing your shopping like salt and pepper, kitchen roll etc.
The Loire Valley region
The Loire Valley was once the playground of French royalty.
There are five cities within two hours drive of Precigne. Le Mans for the racing is only 35mins up the road, whilst Angers, Saumer, Tours and Paris are all within easy access.
For the sports enthusiast - Fishing, Horse Riding & Racing, Motor sports racing at Le Mans & Golf.
There are 32 golf courses in the Pays de la Loire, ten of which are less than an hours drive and the nearest 15 minutes.
Follow along the hundreds of kilometres of well maintained walking trails some of which are right on the doorstep.
For the wine connoisseur - tour the many famous vineyards and chateaux along the river Loire within 45 minutes drive.
And of course many opportunities to absorb the culture of "old" France through the medieval towns and centuries old Chateau.
Precigne is a sleepy village but don't be deceived it has all the essentials and much more too and the locals are very friendly and helpful.
The area is ideal for walking holidays even for the novice walker with good access to marked trails from 30 minute ramble to a full day adventure making this a destination that is good for short breaks or holidays all year round.
Be sure and visit La Fleche. There is a Zoo, the Military Academy, a small airfield or just for the market on Wednesdays.
Sable for a cruise on the Sarthe or a ramble through the cobbled streets.
The Abbey at Solemes, just beside Sable, still celebrates high mass on Sundays with the Gregorian Chant. This is worth a visit even for the not so religious.
Anger and Laval for the shopaholic have a collection of big stores and elegent boutiques.
All through the summer there are festivals happening in every town and village in the area, too numerous to list.
