Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
La Bellaziere is our brand new gite. starting with a 200 year-old farmhouse it now comprises a house for six (with three bedrooms upstairs in the former hay loft) and the former barn which houses a swimming-pool and a separate apartment for two, complete with its bathroom and kitchenette. A couple occupying the apartment will be very close, but independent.
We have made it into a warm and cozy place where families and friends will have a good time together around the solid farm table in the kitchen or on the terraces outside
The octagonal swimming-pool with secure access has views to the countryside and is heated from May to September to a minimum temperature of 24°C (75°F), but the gite is open year-round and we have installed solar panels and heat pumps to make it energy neutral.
We are a little over two hours from Paris, but La Bellaziere is in the countryside ! No close neighbors, only some local cows may show some curiosity … 50 meters from the gate starts a local walking path “Le sentier du Bel Air” which will lead you past superb views changing according to the seasons.
The Sille lake and its man-made beach (swimming, nautical activities) is very close, so is the beautiful site of "Les Alpes Mancelles" (rock-climbing, canoeing, and St Céneri-le-Gerei, one of the most beautiful villages in France). Bagnoles de l'Orne (spa) is only an hour from us as is Le Mans and its 24-hour race. But even closer, you'll enjoy the superb new museum in the Chateau of Mayenne, the Gallo-Roman ruins of Jublains, the medieval fortified town of Ste Suzanne or the caves in Saulges. Whether you wish to enjoy a quiet retreat, or explore and burn your energy, La Mayenne has secret charms. Come discover it !

The Pays de la Loire region
The Sille lake and its man-made beach (swimming, nautical activities) is very close; it has restaurants and all kinds of things to do; very popular on week-ends, much quieter during the week. Also close is the beautiful site of "Les Alpes Mancelles" (rock-climbing, canoeing, many walking and cycling routes), and St Céneri-le-Gerei, one of the most beautiful villages in France, where the church sits overlooking the village and a short walk will enable you to watch the local artist at work. Nice bar and restaurant.
Le Gasseau - (10 minutes) situated near St Leonard des Bois, has tree adventure climbing (at different levels of ability) which will suit children from age about 7 to adults (also has a cafe, restaurant area)°.
Bagnoles de l'Orne (spa, beautiful lake and architecture, and casino) is only an hour from us as is Le Mans and its world-famous 24-hour race. But even closer, you'll enjoy the superb new museum in the Chateau of Mayenne, the Gallo-Roman ruins of Jublains, the medieval fortified town of Ste Suzanne or the caves in Saulges (and their Neolithic treasures). Lots of well-maintained walking-paths, beautiful villages, superb local food to be sampled in a preserved environment..
La Bellaziere is in the countryside, but amenities are not too far... It will take you less than 5 minutes by car to go the village of St Germain, with its bakery and bar restaurant.; or you can take a shortcut and use the walking path .
Villaines-La-Juhel (10 minutes by car ) has a good supermarket which sells local produce, a pharmacy, bars, restaurants etc., so does Sille-Le-Guillaume, in the opposite direction, with a nice restaurant which we recommend!
