Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Montguillon
La Pairiere 6 bedrooms, sleeps Maximum 14. Trespassers W 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4

Located within nearly 1 hectare of gardens are the 19th century stone buildings, La Pairiere and Trespassers W. Each beautifully renovated to include today's modern luxuries, but conserving their old world charm. The buildings sit close together on the site, yet careful planning ans orientation gives them their own sense of individual privacy.

Spend the long summer evenings enjoying a glass of wine in the cobbled and stoned courtyards, take bike rides along the Mayenne stopping to re-fuel on the wonderful crepes in Grez Neuville or simply take time to relax in the tranquil surrounds of the property taking in some of the most beautiful scenery the French countryside has to offer.

La Pairiere and Trespassers W are located in the broad valley of the Mayenne River, shortly before it flows into the Loire. It is the area the French call 'la douce France.' The nearby countryside rolls gently from forested slopes dotted with châteaux to fields ablaze in season with sunflower, rapeseed and grains; from rich riverside pastures and the occasional orchard to quaint villages roofed in the region's distinguishing slate tiles.

A particular local delight is the riverside drive (or cycle or walk - the slopes are not daunting) along the picturesque routes des écluses, which connect the lock villages. One of our favorite meals out is here - simple crêpes and local cider on a river terrace at nearby Grez-Neuville, a lock village that also serves as a base for tourist boats, some of which are available for hire by the half-day and day. An array of local markets allows you to treat you taste buds to wonderful fresh produce, and there is no end to the list of places to visit, whether it be château, museums, medieval towns or even the mystical sounds of the Gregorian monks chanting in the abbey at soles mes.

Lovely farmhouse with a beautiful garden

We had a lovely time at La Pairiere and I can wholly recommend it.

We stayed in the main farmhouse (the smaller converted barn was being renovated at the time), which is wonderful and spacious -- very traditional downstairs, with a big kitchen and living room, plus several bedrooms, and with a converted second floor/loft which has a lovely main bedroom with en-suite bathroom, plus two other bedrooms (one of which of daughter slept in) and loads of toys and books for kids, so great for families.

One of the best features of the place is the big garden -- loads of space for kids to run around, play football etc, cows in the neighboring field which was also a big thrill for our four-year old, plus a nice little copse of trees in the middle of the garden providing a bit of shade and great for having outdoor lunches -- it really is idyllic, my partner and I were reminiscing about this just the other day!

In terms of area, you're at the western edge of the Loire Valley, which means some of the more popular chateaus are a bit of a trek for a day trip. But there are still plenty like Langeais within easy reach, plus the very nice town of Angers, which is worth a visit. And to be honest, you will probably want to spend a fair bit of time simply relaxing at La Pairiere.

Quasi totalité des couchages HS !

nous avons été bien accueillis
malheureusement,nous avons choisit de faire demi-tour car les couchages étaient de très mauvaise qualité.
L'endroit pourtant spacieux ,propre et chauffé ne nous a pas convaincu.
Un rafraîchissement s'impose .
Owner's Response: Nous avons bien pris en compte l'appreciation du 5 janvier 2012. J'ai ete tres surpris par cette appreciation car les personnes n'ont meme pas passe de sejour dans notre gite. A peine arrive qu'ils ont fait demi-tour. Nous avons eu des personnes l'ete passe et a Noel qui n'ont pas fait de remarques au niveau des lits. Pour satisfaire leurs demandes et eviter d'autres reaction de la sorte nous avons decide de changer une grande partie des lits dans les deux gites. nous venons de debuter la saison avec des personnes qui ont passe un excellent sejour. C'est ce que nous esperons a chaque fois. Nous voulons que les personnes profitent pleinement du sejour et qu'ils gardent de tres bons souvenirs. Aux personnes qui apprecient la campagne, le calme et l'espace le gite de la Pairiere est fait pour vous. ce gite se trouve dans une superbe region ou il y a beaucoup a faire.
