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!

Where you’ll be

Chantrigné, Pays de la Loire, France

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, have lunch in one of the local village restaurants followed by an afternoon of relaxing peace and quiet in the cottage 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!

During your stay

As we live in the house at the bottom of the driveway Paul and I are always available to answer any questions that guests may have and although we have put together a comprehensive book of places to visit, restaurants and practical information we are more than happy to give extra advice, book vets/restaurants/taxi's and recommend places to visit that suit your holiday requirements.
