The Owner Recommends

Chateau Gontier

Nearby, nestled on the banks of the River Mayenne is the beautiful, floral town of Chateau Gontier. A bustling market town which offers many cafes, restaurants and shops. The 100km of tow paths from Daon to Mayenne town are ideal for cycling, walking, horse riding, fishing and watersports.

Le Swin Golf Meslay

A lovely day out spent at Le Swin Golf at Meslay, which is around 20 minutes away. You can take a leisurely stroll along the lake or through the village. Picnic around the lake while the children play on the beach, or hire a pedal boat, canoe or bicycle. If you like to fish the lake covers 11 hectares, but you will need a licence which is available on the internet.

Refuge de l'Arche

Fantastic day out at Chateau Gontier's very own animal refuge for sick injured or ill-treated animals. This fabulous charity takes in many species of animals from exotic and wild animals from zoos, laboratories or circuses, or seized by the authorities: lions, tigers, wolves, bears, monkeys, reptiles, exotic birds. There is also a menagerie of goats, sheep, cows, ponies, horses, and donkeys, geese ... to local wildlife animals found sick or wounded by motorists or pedestrians: hawks, falcons, owls, and herons.

Golfers will be blown away with this stunning golf club, which is known as the Pays de la Loire’s “most beautiful” course. Only a 30 minute drive to a course of the highest quality!

Theme Parks

Not forgetting the kids, take a 40 minute drive to Terra Botanica, a weird and wonderful theme park that will arouse your senses. Further afield, a 1hr 40 minutes’ drive and you will find Puy du Fou. Here you can travel back to medieval times with chariot races, jousting tournaments by the knights of the round table, swashbuckling musketeers and magnificent firework displays.
