About this property

Beautiful Stone House with a Touch of Luxury. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

La Grange House has been fully renovated, mixing characterful stone walls, beams, terracotta flooring and logburner with modern luxuries such as a Jacuzzi and pool. You can sip wine on the terrace and watch your children playing in the water as a way of relaxation or why not venture to one of the region's many chateaux and parks. Whatever your choice you will find yourself fully immersed in a pretty, friendly village and enjoy all La Grange can offer.
 
There is plenty of space for larger groups, our beautiful master bedroom with Jacuzzi in the en suite is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic break. For those with older children needing exam revision, French tuition can be organised upon request.  One bedroom is downstairs, suiting families wishing to travel with elderly grandparents.
 
La Grange is within 200 metres of the River Mayenne which borders the Loire Valley. The River Mayenne offers ample cycle rides along the towpath, canoeing and for keen fishers, there is night carp fishing along this stretch of water.
