La Tournerie was once a small dairy farm and in recent years we have converted an old apple store into a very comfortable two bedroomed self catering gite. The accomodation is split level with the main living area , the twin room and bathroom on the first level .Very comfortably furnished with French and English antiques it will sleep 4 adults having one double bedroom and one twin bedded room. We also have a small child's bed and a cot . The light airy and very spacious living area has stairs down to the large double bedroom which has french doors on to the private south facing garden. ..Three kilometres from the small market town of Gace which has good food shops and restaurants.. Alphonsine du Plessis aka La Dame aux Camellias , was born in a nearby village and in the Chateau of Gace is a very good museum dedicated to this tragic young woman who was the muse of several musicians artists and authors....There are many historic visits linked to WW11 such as the Memorial at Montormel where the historic battle of the Falaise Gap was fought.....We are just 15 minutes by car to the magnificent 18th century National Stud of HARAS DU PIN where in August 2014 some of the events of WORLD EQUESTRIAN GAMES will be held. A favourite visit of our guests is a trip to l'Aigle which has one of the largest street markets in France...L'Aigle is also our nearest train station with an excellent fast train service to Paris so a day trip to Paris is another of the favourite visits...
