About Debra Worboys
We are artists living in the West of England and Les Ecoubleres is our home. After many years of searching for a French retreat we stumbled across this beautiful property that we have lovingly restored. We hope that all who visit Les Ecoubleres will enjoy it as much as we do and will be inspired to return.
Debra Worboys purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Debra Worboys chose Thorigné-en-Charnie
After visiting the area for several years my partner and I eventually discovered this rambling, rustic, property and fell in live with it instantly. Originally an ancient settlement dating back to the 15th Century, the property is set in 6 acres of open land, attracting a rich and diverse variety of wildlife. Conveniently located within easy reach of the local amenities, les Ecoubleres is the perfect retreat, offering peace and tranquility without being isolated. Since purchasing the property we have carried out extensive renovation work and the house now offers comfortable, modern accommodation.
What makes this Cottage unique

Charming peaceful cottage
The cottage is wonderfully isolated with stunning views all around.
It is gated for total safety and privacy as you drive down a short lane to get to the cottage.
The cottage is very clean and is equipped with everything you will need. I would advise this is suitable for couples as it's very romantic and quiet.
We took our German shepherd and it was wonderful watching him run everywhere in perfect safety.
We are so glad you enjoyed staying at the cottage, thank you for the very positive review, we look forward to seeing you again later in the year.
