About the neighbourhood
The Mayenne area is an area of gently undulating countryside with long quiet country lanes which are ideal for walking, biking and fishing. There are many chateaux to visit locally at Levare, Fougeres, Laval, Mayenne, Chateau du Goue. The village has a little shop adjoining the bar/shop/restaurant where you can get everything.

The Jardins des Renaudies is situated five minutes down the road at Colombiers du Plessis and have a full itinerary of activities for the summer organised through the Mayenne tourist board. Fishing is a big activity in this area with matches being organised regularly locally. There is a fet... more
