From the owner

Guimondiere is a 2 storey spacious family holiday home with 3 double bedrooms and a shower room/toilet on each floor. There is the potential to sleep up to 8 people with additional bed space in the form of a double sofa bed in the comfortable tv lounge, room for a cot/single bed in the dressing area attached to one of the upstairs bedrooms and a small french bed/sofa in the downstairs bedroom.

The kitchen/diner is a large country kitchen with a vaulted ceiling, wood burning range cooker and fully equipped modern units with all the usual appliances. French doors lead out into the garden for easy outdoor dining and a short walk up the garden path leads to an above ground pool with its own terrace overlooking the countryside. The solar heated pool measures 7.30 x 4 x 1.20m. It is set down behind enclosing stone walls leaving it completely private and sheltered.

The owners live in an adjacent property and are on hand should they be required however Guimondiere has been landscaped to offer everyone maximum privacy and tranquility. There is a large barn next to the gite which offers indoor games such as table tennis, pool, darts and skittles and there is a range of indoor board games, books, jigsaws etc. in the gite. There is a covered barbeque area in the garden with a gas barbeque. There is enough space on the lawns for badminton and short tennis. Well behaved dogs are welcome as there is livestock on the property along the owners' friendly dog. If the chickens are laying guests can collect their own eggs for breakfast.

Guimondiere is a perfect country holiday retreat in an area of outstanding natural beauty set on the border between Mayenne and Sarthe. It is an excellent base for day trips as well as being somewhere to just rest, relax and take time out over meals with friends/family.
