About this property

Newly Renovated Gite with Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Bellaziere is our brand new gite. We have just finished renovating it, starting with a 200 year-old old farmhouse which had been uninhabited for 50 years. It now comprises of a house for 6, with 3 bedrooms upstairs in the former hay loft, and the former barn which has been turned into a separate apartment for 2, complete with bathroom, kitchenette and swimming pool.
 
Couples occupying the apartment will be very close, but still have their independence.
 
We have decorated it with French furniture, to make it a warm and cosy place where families and friends can have a good time together. You can share a meal on the solid farm table in the kitchen or on the south-facing terrace outside or enjoy sitting in the lounge chairs with parasol on the west side of the terrace.  The octagonal swimming pool with secure access has views to the countryside and is heated from May to September 
 
The gite is open all year round and we have installed solar panels and heat pumps to make it energy efficient.
  
We are a little over 2 hours from Paris, but La Bellaziere is immersed in the countryside! No close neighbours, only some local cows that may show some curiosity and 50 metres from the gate starts a local walking trail “Le Sentier du Bel Air” which will lead you past superb views which change according to the seasons.

The Owner Recommends

Sille Plage... and more!

The Sille lake and its man-made beach (swimming, nautical activities) is very close, so is the beautiful site of "Les Alpes Mancelles" (rock-climbing, canoeing, and St Céneri-le-Gerei (one of the most beautiful villages in France). Bagnoles de l'Orne (spa) is only an hour from us as is Le Mans and its 24-hour race. But even closer, you'll enjoy the superb new museum in the Chateau of Mayenne, the Gallo-Roman ruins of Jublains, the medieval fortified town of Ste Suzanne or the caves in Saulges (and their Neolithic treasures). La Mayenne has secret charms. Come discover it !

Maison très agréable, facile à vivre.

We were a mixed family group ranging in age from nine to 86 but everyone enjoyed the lovely pool. The separate ground floor bedroom/kitchenette was ideal for the more mature members of our group. We visit the area regularly so we know how quiet and peaceful it is, the surrounding countryside is beautiful. It was very relaxing to sit out on the terrace eating breakfast in the sunshine.

The owners live nearby and were very helpful and attentive, very good customer service.

This property is ideal for family groups who would like a relaxing break in the French countryside. All the bedrooms were nicely decorated and comfortable and there was plenty of space both inside and out for dining.

Highly recommended.
