Where you’ll be

Fontaine Daniel, France

The Gîte is in the centre of Fontaine-Daniel which has an organic epicerie/bar (which also hosts concerts, talks and exhibitions), a bakery, creperie and restaurant.

This village is also the home of Toiles de Mayenne fabric. It has been inhabited for 800 years, originally by Cistercian Monks and still home to an Orthodox Monastary (which you can visit) whose nuns produce beautiful candles and tisanes.

Set in the forest of Bois-Salaire this vibrant village has much to offer around it with beautiful walks, miles of cycle paths and activities on the river, as well as being an area especially of interest to artists.
