About this listing
Charming rural fermette Gite with character on the outskirts of the village of Bais near Evron, Mayenne and Le Mans. Ideal for walking, angling, mountain biking and relaxation. Close to forests and family friendly lakes with inland beaches at Sille Plage or Gue de Selle.
Old farm house, no traffic apart from the odd tractor. Walking routes pass by the back garden. Really cosy with wood stoves, a paraffin stove or electric radiators for heating. Please note that there is a narrow spiral staircase between floors. Lots of local activities for families, particularly in the summer.
Whole house, back garden, small field behind garden
Interaction with guests
Contactable by phone or SMS. Two local families help me out with cleaning, gardening and maintenance.
Bais is a lively little town with supermarkets, bakeries, chemist, cafe, barbers, campsite, swimming pool and more. For more lively bars, restaurants and shopping I recommend 15 min drive to Evron or 20 odd minutes driving to the town of Mayenne.
Car is essential, but lovely off road cycling, footpaths and bridleways pass by the garden.
