“The essence of France”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015
person found this review helpful

After a busy year, a week in the French countryside is ideal. With a car full of wine and food from the local town, La Grange du Guepier is the perfect place to relax. The house is stunning. High ceilings and a wonderful design makes everything easy, the kitchen, dining area, lounge, games room and barbecue patio are all spacious enough for groups of 8+ to relax together without getting under each others feet. There is plenty of outdoor space for younger ones to run around and a pool for when it gets too hot. If you are missing a bit of Blighty, the mezzanine area has English TV and a chance to relax with a book in the shade.

All four bedrooms are large ensuites - better than you would expect from a good english master bedroom - and the three upstairs rooms have wonderful views of the French countryside and black out shutters to ensure a good nights sleep.

Chatres la Foret is an ideal base to explore The Mayenne and beyond. Locally there is the lake at Mezanger, the historic Saint Suzanne and innumerable hidden restaurants and days out to discover. A little further is the lovely Sille Guillaume, the towns of Laval, Renne and Mayenne and of course Le Mans which is only a short drive away.

If you want a weekend in London or Rome, this isn't that kind of holiday, but if you want a place where a family can be a family together - enjoying a sense of time and space - La Grange du Guesser is ideal.
