The Space

A beautiful farmhouse B&B on the border of Lower Normandy and Pays de la Loire, we offer three non-smoking "chambres d'hôtes" (guest rooms) in our traditional 18th century stone-and-timber home.

The house has been renovated to provide modern comforts while maintaining all its period charm, situated in a quiet village and surrounded by extensive private gardens and grounds.

The landscaped gardens with secluded niches and terraces are generously furnished with tables and chairs to provide plenty of private, quiet places to sit and continue to be developed each passing year.

The guest rooms have been comfortably furnished, tastefully and individually decorated, with adjoining private bathrooms. Each has original exposed beams and views over the surrounding countryside and gardens. Free Wi-Fi Internet is provided throughout the house.

A well equipped sitting room with library, refreshments and tourist information is at guests' disposal.

A wooded fishing lake, tennis courts, boules, mountain bike rental and walking routes are on hand.
