Things to do in Sarthe, France

The landscapes of Sarthe are a nature lover’s dream. The gently sloping Sarthe Valley gives way to the imposing mountain slopes in the Haute Sarthe region, providing all the natural facilities for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and hiking that you could possibly think of. The countryside is wonderfully natural and unspoilt, covered in lush forests and carved by the channels of many rivers, streams and lakes. These lakes provide visitors with endless opportunities for fun, whether you are simply pottering around in a boat, fishing or enjoying one of the many water sports on offer, from water skiing to windsurfing.

Throughout Sarthe are perfectly preserved monuments to the region’s turbulent past. The stunningly picturesque villages of Sarthe are filled with medieval charm, where elegant chateaux, imposing castles and awe inspiring abbeys dominate the skyline.

Visitors can enjoy anything from rambling to bungee jumping, sailing to cycling, flying to rock climbing. Keeping your family happy and active has never been so easy as it is from a self catering Sarthe holiday rental property.

Ophelie and Jim could not do enough for their guests, from homemade jam, aperitif and eggs to the offer of bikes to borrow. Plenty of books, mags and DVDs if you want to stay in along with a fully equipped kitchen. La Chartre is close by, which is a lovely town. Hens visit the garden daily, which is a delight. Highly recommend.

Anita and Richard were the perfect hosts and really did look after us for the whole stay. The gite was very clean and comfortable and had all of the amenities and facilities that we needed. It accommodated seven very easily with enough space for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed although the bbq was used more than anything. The morning croissants and baguettes were a perfect start to the day with the local supermarket only 8km away.The pool was superb and such a bonus as we had two very hot weeks. The local area is ideal for cycling although undulating country side makes it challenging on occasion and perfect for relaxing walks in the nearby forest. The bars and restaurant at the local lake in the forest, only 5km away, provides some night life if you need it.The local villages and country side are very pretty and well worth a trip out if you need to do more than relax by the pool. If you are looking for the perfect relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings then I would thoroughly recommend a stay here. I am booking two more weeks for next year!

With three generations the games room and table tennis had plenty of use and the pool was a great hit with all ages. There is a small supermarket a 5 minute walk away, the village, restaurants and bigger supermarket 10 minutes away. In the village we enjoyed some delicious meals at Il Calcio, the owners restaurant. We found the owner to be very friendly and helpful. The surrounding countryside is beautiful dotted with pretty, often medieval, villages. 20 minutes away is a lake with a small beach, pedalos etc, at Sille' Le Guillaume. Le Mans is 40 minutes away where we found a theme park for the youngsters. We all enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend this property.
