You are looking for a place to relax and rest. You are looking for somewhere that is close to the sites of north-west France without being in the congested tourist areas. You want to get to the real France where life is slower, gourmands are satisfied and where memorable holidays are made. Le Haut Malaisé is for you.
A fully self-contained gîte, this converted barn has two bedrooms sleeping four, full kitchen, bathroom with shower and a large sitting area with a log burning fire. It is located on the borders of Brittany, Normandy and the Loire Valley and is easily reached from the cross-channel ferry ports at Caen, St. Malo and Cherbourg, the airports at Rennes (RNS), Nantes (NTE) and Dinard (DNR) and is less than 4hrs driving from Paris.
It is ideally located for the tourist attractions of north-west France with the world famous Le Mont Saint-Michel only an hour away. The D-Day landing beaches are close by and Le Haut Malaisé was used by Allied forces during the liberation of France. The beautiful Loire Valley views and wines are easily accessible.
The surrounding area is known for the quality and variety of its food which is easily obtained in the weekly markets. There are many beaches in Normandy and Brittany and the local rural countryside is excellent for walking, running and cycling. Motorsport fans are two hours from the Mulsanne straight for the 24 Heures du Mans and the Tour de France often passes through the area.
A quintessentially French building, Le Haut Malaisé is furnished with French furniture enhanced with pieces from our travels around the globe. We have lived for many years in Asia and our adventures as international travellers have influenced how we set up and run the gîte. We know what relaxing holidays are like and we want our guests to have that same experience.
