Make a holiday rental gite or property in Mayenne, France your home away from home

The quiet, rural department of Mayenne lies between the Loire Valley and southern Normandy, in the Western Loire, which has been declared as a ‘cultural landscape of exceptional beauty’ by UNESCO. It is a peaceful department where eating well, enjoying the countryside and unwinding slowly are the favoured pastimes for holiday makers staying in self catering Mayenne properties or gites.

Things to do on holiday in Mayenne, France

The northern part of Mayenne, France, is protected by the boundaries of the Parc Naturel Regional de Normandie et Maine, which is a huge area of unspoilt forested hills, which draw tourists to Mayenne properties from across Europe to walk, ride and cycle through the hugely attractive scenery. 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. The Roman town of Les Jublains is the best place to visit from a Mayenne gite to see remnants of the past. There are Roman temples, baths and a huge theatre on view in Les Jublains, and are well worth visiting.

Ce fut des retrouvailles dans d'excellentes conditions. Une grande maison ancienne chaleureuse avec 2 cheminées. Une deuxième petite maison en complément qui ont permis de séparer les ados des parents. Une piscine couverte avec jacuzzi. On s'y sent bien, nous avons tous adoré. Merci!
