MAISON KATE, 16th Century Barn in Mayenne, a cottage in Loire: MAISON KATE, 16th Century Barn exterior

Two Unique Cottages sleeping 2 or up to 6 with 4m x 6m Outdoor Pool

La Cretouffiere is a secluded picturesque rural hamlet built in stone set in the tranquil Mayenne department (southern Normandy / eastern Brittany) known as Pays de la Loire. 2 imaginatively restored cottages share an outdoor pool (available June/mid-Sept) contained within its own enclosure.
Maison Kayte is detached with its own garden area and unique artistic flavour - mosaics, stained glass panels and gable end spire.
Maison Clem, on the other side of the hamlet, sleeps 4 and is decorated in a simple vintage French style, with seating area outside. A 2 person annex is available with Clems.
The site can accommodate 12 people in total, please inquire for further info or special requests (pets/ check in days etc)

Maison Kate has a large open-plan ground floor kitchen, dining and living area. A winding staircase leads to the extraordinary upper level. Two characterful double bedrooms are accessed by short flights of stairs from the landing . The bathroom has a corner bath, shower over, toilet, mosaic basin, and stained glass panel. The third twin-bedroom is light and bright with en-suite shower room/toilet.
All cottages have exposed beams, wood-burners, English satellite TV, well-equipped kitchens, and shared washing machine area. For practical reasons, Clement is the only cottage available all year. There is a communal children“s' play area, swing and charming BBQ building.
This is an excellent base from which to explore the medieval towns, castles and markets of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire. Ideal for cycling, rambling, riding, bird-watching, fleamarkets, but mostly just relaxing. Less than 3 hrs drive from Cherbourg & Le Havre, 3.5 hrs from Dieppe. Helpful resident British owners. Wireless Broadband is available from pool area.

Places of Interest:
The stunning Mont St Michel - one of the most visited places in the world, and for good reason. An unforgettable day trip an easy 1 hour drive from site. You'll find medieval architecture in the spectacular castle towns of Fougeres (30 mins) or Vitre (45 mins) The interesting coastal fortress town of St Malo (one+ hour) is located on the beautiful Emerald Coast with clean sandy beaches and sparkling water, and just inland is the bustling historic town of Dinan with cobbled streets & timbered houses. Another favourite is Bayeux, a pretty cathedral town with its famous tapestry, and not far beyond are the WWII Landing Beaches of Normandy. Les Jardins des Renaudies Parc Floral is an exceptional garden within walking distance of us. There are many attractions for children including animal and climbing parks, kayaking etc.

Many people find our site so charming they don't leave it much, but locally Gorron has all the facilities you need: restaurants, bars, supermarkets, post office, doctors' surgery, pharmacy etc.

Arrivals: After 4.00 pm please, to allow us to prepare the cottage
Departures: By 10.00 am
Arrival day normally Saturday but flexibility is sometimes possible.
