Petit Houx, a Lovely French Escape

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Le Ham, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire
Sleeps 4. 2 bedroom traditional renovated cottage. A great couples/family escape. Petit Houx is within a short distance from the towns of Lassay les Chateaux, Villaines La Juhel and Javron les Chapelles. Petit Houx is attached to the main house, Grand Houx, which is an 18th century stone longere. The gite is set in peaceful rolling countryside just a stone's throw from the peaceful village of Le Ham. The area is excellent for walking, fishing and for visiting some of the region's many local sights. A real hideaway with accessibility to all that the region has to offer. A comfortable gite to return to after a day exploring this laid back area of France. The big attraction near here, just a twenty minute drive on quiet country back roads, is the beautiful Alpes Mancelles, an outdoor escape offering kayaking, endless walks and bike t... Read more

About the neighbourhood
Le Ham is very close to the' Alpes Mancelles ' via the pretty village of St Leonard des Bois. This region can best be described as a little Switzerland with its valleys, rivers, rolling hills and pretty chalets. Restaurants abound. Great for kayaking, abseiling, walking, swimming and cycling. Half an hour's drive from our door. Highly recommended and well signposted. Outstanding area for walking with trails from our front door. Mayenne is unspoilt and far from the madding crowd whilst still within easy reach of the Loire Valley, Brittany and the Western Loire coast.
