The Owner Recommends

Haras du Pin

One of the French National Studs - set up by King Louis 14 in 1665.
Open for guided tours and hosts frequent shows and spectacles.
A wonderful day out for all the family

Le Chateau de Vendeuvre

This pretty privately owned chateau is 20 minutes from our property, and is a fabulous destination for the whole family. Children will be enchanted by the garden of surprises, and a visit to the chateau itself is a must. There is also a maze, and a museum of miniature furniture, and also a dog kennel museum! A trip here can be tied in with a visit to the classic country market in St Pierre sur Dives on Monday mornings - do lunch in town and then head off for an afternoon at the Chateau....Parfait!
