The Owner Recommends

Highlights of the area to mention a few

Le Lude is one of the last remaining important historical castles in France, which is still lived in by the same family, and has been for the past 260 years. Four centuries in one place! The château is an example of four centuries of French architecture.
There are 2 Lakes, La Monnerie – La Fleche (30km), Lac des Varennes beach – Marcon (23km). Here there are free activities, walking and cycling trails, water sports and BBQ and picnic areas.
There are 2 zoos - Beauval Zoo and La Fleche zoo.
We are 40 minutes from Le Mans north with all the races for bikes cars and classic cars including the famous 24 hour race.
It is 35 minutes to Tours east and 45 minutes to Angers East. My guests have had some awesome cycle tours in Saumur. There is loads of fantastic stuff to do within an hour drive and i have many brochures at the property for you to look at. Le Lude is 12km west of me with a couple of grocery stores, a chateau and coffee shops as well as an english pub the rose and crown. La fleche is much larger (west) and Chateau de la loir is quite large and is east of us 14km. All these places have reasturants and shops for all your needs.
