Cycling from town to town is a highly enjoyable way to explore from a Mayenne property, but you can also choose to go by car or boat is you do not feel you have the energy to cycle!

The rivers which cross the park and the Mayenne River which crosses the department are teeming with fish, and throughout the fishing season, anglers and fisherman can be seen trying their luck along the banks or wading in the shallows of the many rivers which gently meander through the countryside.

There is a strong sense of history throughout Mayenne, with frequent reminders of the department’s rough past throughout both town and country.
