Le Vieux Fournil still has the original bread oven opening into the living space in this wonderfully quirky building. The kitchen and bathroom are housed in the original woodstore and pig sty and the bedroom is converted in the hayloft. The house is 2 km’s from the historic town of Lassay-les-Châteaux with its fortified medieval chateau., winding streets and gardens.

The space
This is an ideal base for those seeking walking or cycling holidays in wonderful countryside or as a base for day tripping to Mont St Michel and Normandy Beaches to the North or to the vineyards of Vouvray and Chateaux's of the Loire in the South. Alternatively you may just want to sit and relax in the garden with a glass of wine and enjoy a break away from hectic city life!

Guest access
Le Vieux Fournil has it's own private garden for the use by guests staying at the cottage, all set within 1.8 acres of land surrounding the property, which in itself is surrounded by fields. A BBQ is provided with outdoor furniture - two sun loungers, sun parasol, dining table and chairs. There are two picnic rugs and cushions in the cottage which can be used in the garden or taken out for the day. A picnic bag and freezer blocks are also provided.

The cottage is set on a hill overlooking the beautiful Mayenne Valley. Tennis, horse riding, golf, fishing and kayaking are a few of the sports facilities that are available within a short drive from the cottage. For a slower pace, a stroll by the river with lunch in our village restaurant - €12.50 for 5 courses inc. wine and coffee followed by an afternoon in the peace and quiet of the garden - what more could you want!

Paul and I both had busy careers in London, too much stress and unhealthy lifestyles. We would longingly watch all those TV programs about changing your life, moving to the country, renovating a barn into a designer palace - if only that could be us! In 2007, just as my son left home for University I found myself redundant however always one to look on the bright side that gave us an opportunity to have some 'us' time. That quickly turned into 'seize the day' mentality so Paul quit his job, we put our furniture in storage, packed our car to the roof and set off for France with a map and a gite booked for 7 weeks. Twelve years later we are still here and loving the french life! Now we can speak reasonable french, Paul has been a member of our village council and we have taught English to the children in the local school (although to be honest I think we learnt more French from them than they learnt English from us!) We have a lovely laid back dog called Barnabé and one big barn still to renovate!
