La Grande Salle Verte
Carelles, Western Loire, France
Additional Location Information
La Petite Maison is a cottage in the 1 acre grounds of La Grande Salle Verte, our renovated farmhouse, where we also welcome guests for bed and breakfast.It overlooks hayfields and oak and sweet chestnut trees.
Our village of Carelles is small and quiet, the way of life here is mostly farming, cows, maize, apples, and cider and Calvados (apple brandy) are the local specialities!
There is a bar/restaurant/shop and church, all about 200 yards away, and you can have a 4 or 5 course lunch, cider and red wine included for about 11 euros.
The local towns of Gorron and Ernee are about 10 minutes by car.
As well as the usual shops and supermarkets, they have swimming pools, parks for the children, canoeing, tree-top walks and picnic/barbeque areas.
Close at hand, are the historic towns of Mayenne, Domfront, Vire, Laval and Fougeres, (about 30 mins drive) which has a lovely Saturday market, a Land-train, Aquatis centre (flumes, fountains, indoor and outdoor pools) 10pin bowling and a man-made sandy beach where you can swim or lead your children round the woods on a Shetland pony.
Of course, if this is too much activity, relax by our pool with a glass of wine, or feed the animals, collect the eggs or have a leisurely game of Petanque (bowls).
You really need a car to get around here, but we can collect you from Rennes airport, about an hour away, and you can hire a car locally for 5 euros a day, plus deposit.
Parking is easy, we have lots of room, and there are 2 disabled scooters available to borrow, free of charge, if wanted.
