Lovely house with excellent pool
First impressions were great, electric gates open up onto a private drive and gardens, the owner is polite and accommodating.
The heated pool and gardens are really excellent, 5*.
General living areas are all fine, large dining tables inside and out, large TV, WifFi, sauna, games room with pool table, table tennis, tennis etc. 5*
UK visitors should note that their are only 2 toilets for the whole house and these are separate from the bathrooms, no windows, by UK standards the toilets need to be revised.
This is a very quiet area of Sarthe/ Loire, and we found that many of the shops and bars were closed during August. Mainly a non English speaking area. We enjoyed the village centre, touring around local villages, and a trip down to busy Le Mans (40 mins), and Coco Lake (10 mins).
A good place to relax.
Amazing house in a wonderful small town
The house is superb. It is even better than in the photographs. It is very large and well looked after. It has everything you need for a lovely stay. The cellar games room has full sized football table, pool table and air hockey table and was brilliant for the kids. There is also a table tennis table in the double garage. The house is in a quiet street on the edge of town. The pool was a great help as we visited during a heat wave. The cover of the pool can be locked for safety if you have small children. It has a curved bottom and is over 6 foot deep in the middle. The garden is lovely with a very nice wood hidden behind the hedge. We enjoyed a visit at night from a hedgehog! The town itself is a small, charming rural town. The old castle has been turned into a delightful small park with great views over the river. We felt welcome by the local residents who put up with our poor French! The local Super U supermarket was modern with a large range of goods and also had a pharmacy.
Alencon is fairly close and was a nice town. They are relaying all the cobble streets so it wasn't at its best, but well worth a visit.
The city of Le Mans is about 40 mins drive away and from there you can get a fast train to Paris. We had children 6 children ranging from 7 - 16 with us and would recommend a trip to Papea Park in Les Mans. A fantastic theme park with rides for all ages. Clean and spacious with plenty of shade and lots of drink stands available.
We will definitely be going back. We arrived by Ferry at Caen and it was about an hour and a half drive to Fresnay. The inland lake with sandy beach is also very good at Coco Plage near Sille de Guilliame.
The hosts were very welcoming and helpful.
A brilliant holiday had by all!
Lovely place with amazing space and facilities!
We had a fantastic time! 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 toddler. Had fun using the pool, table tennis, the pool table. Lovely walks in nature. Very quiet and relaxing! Not really ensuites though, just the one shower. Apart from that would go back if visiting the area again!
Fantastic house with everything you need for a great holiday.
Lovely well equipped house and grounds all in excellent condition. The pool is a real bonus and the sleepy town is only a short walk. Highly recommended.
This house is extremely comfortable. it has everything you need and more. The rooms are spacious and the surrounding gardens are filled with trees and flowers attracting local wildlife. The heated pool is covered which is very useful if the weather is cooler than expected in summer. I would recommend this property to anyone with a large family as there are 4 bedrooms each with a double bed and one room also has bunk beds. The furnishings are very high specification.
Fresnay-sur-Sarthe is a pretty town and the property is on a quiet housing estate although it is ideally situated to visit the pretty village of St Ceneri-le-Gerei, the cities of Le Mans, and Alencon, and the towns of Bagnoles-del-l'Orne and Domfront.
Thank you for letting us visit your house. Merci beaucoup.
Nice house, slightly strange layout
The house is modern, very well equipped and comfortable. The pool is great and games room kept the kids occupied, as did the fantastic big screen Samsung smart TV. The owners were very nice, although I think the security deposit is a bit high. The only strange thing is that none of the three bathrooms have toilets, there are two in the property but both are separate and individual.
In the heart of the Alpes Mancelles, you will be able to relax in a hilly and wooded setting with nice walks in the horizon: Saint-Léonard-des-Bois, Saint Céneri, Sillé-Le-Guillaume Lake and let's not forget Saint-Suzanne, one of the most beautiful French villages, only 30 km away. Twenty minutes from Le Mans, the city centre, an automobile museum and a 24-hour race.
