Description

A newly refurbished gite in a quiet, undiscovered, beautiful area of France. The converted farmhouse has a large private quiet garden and three double bedrooms each with new double beds. There are generous spaces downstairs with large kitchen dining room and sitting room with comfy sofas and TV, DVD player and games for the odd wet days. A large first floor landing provides a quiet escape for a read of one of the many books on hand in the gite.

The property is close to a number of very pretty villages and less than five minutes away in Les Alpes Mancelles are many outdoors activities such as, rock climbing, canoeing, horse riding, mountain bike trails to name a few.

The countryside abounds with trails for walking and biking some alongside the small and larger rivers in the area.

The gite lies between the villages of St. Leonard des Bois and Gesvres which between them offer bakery, beer cave, creperie, pizza restaurant, various bars and an auberge.

Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

An unexplored but beautiful area of France. Close to the coast for ease of travel. A region renowned for rugged landscapes full of rivers and craggy rocks. Great for canoeing and rock climbing but also full,of wonderful walks and mountain bike trails through forests and also side the rivers. Pretty villages with weekly markets abound and the historic towns of Alencon and Mayenne are in easy reach.
There are swimming lakes with sandy beaches and restaurants nearby.

Saint-Leonard-des-Bois

The gite is between two villages which are less than a mile away. They have bakers, bars and restaurants and a small shop. Larger supermarkets are in the next town about a fifteen minute drive. The gite is very quiet being surrounded by farms and fields. There is a footpath from thrive down to the small rocky river and a delightful walk along the river, which is wonderfully cool if a hot summer's day.

“Saint-Leonard-des-Bois”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2016

Lovely property snuggled away (yet not actually that far from all the stuff you could need to stock up for an idyllic rural French hideaway) in gently rolling countryside - about hour and half drive from Le Havre port. We're keen cyclists and had any number of great routes - including the highest point in north west France - in easy striking distance. Our mates are walkers and they said likewise. The hosts managed to strike the perfect balance of attentiveness to our requests, yet never overly so. We stayed just after Christmas and would recommend to anyone looking for the ideal full rustic/wood-smokey/spacious yet cosy/red winey rural France start to the New Year.

Thank you for the positive review. I'm really glad you all had a great time and enjoyed the marvellous walking and cycling in the beautiful countryside around the gite. Maybe we will see you again in the summer !
