Reviewed 13 Jul 2018

Stayed at the house for Classic Le Mans, could not have wished for a better place to stay. House and grounds are amazing, peaceful, everything you need will be there.

“A rural gem with history”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

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.

Owner's reply: 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.
