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.

The children loved the pool, and the adults were able to unwind using the fantastic facilities provided on site. The property was immaculately maintained both inside and out - and despite the time of year, the grounds and gardens were in stunning condition ... the children became very fond of the robotic grass cutter, who was on duty 24/7 to keep the lawns looking perfect. This is a great place to relax, unwind and to use as a base for exploring the surrounding historical area. I would definitely recommend this property to others who are looking for a holiday with some unique added value features.
