The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The neighbourhood

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.

Getting around

Car is essential, but lovely off road cycling, footpaths and bridleways pass by the garden.

Other things to note

You can arrive at any time as there is a key locker on site.

Really nice gite with lots of effort put in to making guests feel welcome. Very good house book with lots of tips from previous guests on things to do in the local area. The master bedroom very impressive with exposed beams etc. The building must be a few hundred years old, and the renovation job on it is impressive. It's the good life in rural France, empty roads, inquisitive farmers, lakes, bread, wine, the whole thing.

A beautiful and quaint little cottage, the setting is idyllic and quiet but for the singing of birds and odd moo of a cow. Perfect. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Daniel is very helpful and his contact throughout is very good.

We enjoyed a lot our stay at Daniel s place, it is lovely, peaceful and the inside is really well designed. We didn't miss anything and in case we did the neighbour were really friendly and ready to help. We ll probably come back!

This place is a little gem, bit out of the way but has easy access to local towns and villages. Just turn up and relax.

Rustic French house with all the comforts of home, a large kitchen well equipped and a cozy living room both with wood burners that threw out lots of heat it was the end of October we thought we may be cold but were pleasantly surprised. Tranquil with great walks yet Bais 5 minutes away with a small Carrefour with petrol and a good range of provisions in the town some restaurants.

Great location, really quiet and peaceful. Although the house is only basically furnished, the beds are really comfortable and we had an excellent night's sleep. Daniel was very helpful.
