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.

Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

Guimondiere sits on the boundary of the counties of the Mayenne and the Sarthe in region of the Pays de Loire. It is near to Alencon (20 minute drive - famous for its lace making history) and the pretty villages of the Sarthe. It also borders the Orne region in Normandy - beautiful and historic with world war 2 heritage sites, medieval plantagenet towns and churches. Le Mans (home to motor racing and an incredible summer Son et Lumiere in the old quarter of the town) is 40 mins. away with all the amenities of a busy city and a great Sunday morning food market.

Saint Aubin du Desert

WHAT THERE IS LOCALLY - practically every village and small town at the weekend have annual summer fetes/ vide greniers (similar to a car boot sale) which means there are all kinds of events within striking distance that are genuinely rural. We stock comprehensive tourist information on local events, gardens, zoos, roman ruins, theme parks etc. and also walking and biking trails. Villaines La Juhel itself is the nearest small town (6k) with a large supermarket and pharmacie. A few minutes drive from the doorstep of Guimondiere are hundreds of kilometers of forests and woods to hike, cycle, ride through.

The Alpes Mancelles is an area of outstanding natural beauty and just a few minutes away with St Leonard du Bois, a famous pretty village carved out of the rock on a river with Tree Climbing (Accrobranches), river canoeing, pony trekking and bike hire available. St Ceneri le Gerei listed as one of the prettiest villages in France with beautiful riverside houses, an arts and craft event during the summer when local artists display their work and beautiful gardens to visit. Sille le Guillaume is a 15 minute drive and boasts a huge lake and beach with cycle trails through the forest, amenities for small children like pony rides, pedaloes, crazy golf, tennis courts, tree course, fishing, boat hire, bars and restaurants. Averton, a village 5 minutes away, has a big leisure lake with fitness trails, fishing and bbq facilities. Fresnay sur Sarthe (15 min drive) is a lovely medieval 'petit cite de caractere' with a typical square, views over the river, ancient buildings and a traditional little market every Saturday morning after which you can take coffee at a bar in the square, sit outside and watch the world go by. There is a larger market every thursday morning at Evron, a 30 minute drive away.

The summer holidays here in the heart of the Mayenne/Orne/Sarthe countryside are all about simple pursuits like long lunches, leisurely picnics, meals in the garden around the BBQ or pool perhaps with a game of boules or skittles. There are half a dozen local pizzerias and restaurants nearby within a few minutes driving distance. There are local places of interest to visit and many attractive villages and small towns. (What you will not find locally;- night life, traffic noise, light pollution or large shopping malls.
