Why The Owner chose Aron

Absolutely love the history of the watermill and the thought of who has been walking up the steps and using the machinery here in the 15th century and through the war times with evidence of Germans here. Amazing

Also love being amongst the French farming community but close to so much , beautiful scenery and great restaurants .

What makes this cottage unique

Trout filled rivers for seasonal fishing. Cycle paths very close to property. In the grounds of a 15th century water mill. Many historic towns within 30minutes drive. Rivers and pond views over countryside. New community swimming pool in town only 5 minutes away.

GIte très bien rénové avec beaucoup de goût. Environnement calme, reposant, très bien situé à quelques km de Mayenne. Rebecca est une personne très serviable, attentionnée, mais discrète. Le gîte est très fonctionnel (ustensiles cuisine, produits de première nécessité, bois pour cheminée, lits faits à l arrivée, torchons et serviettes fournis). La terrasse exposée plein sud avec ses deux chaises longues est un plus qui doit être bien agréable lors des beaux jours. Merci à Rebecca pour avoir permis aux enfants de s occuper des chevaux, pour son panier de bienvenue et pour nous avoir fait réviser notre anglais avec la tv uniquement disponible en chaînes anglaises.
