Things To Do

If you fancy a day away from the fishing or you are a non-angler there is plenty to see and do. The Mayenne region is famous for its equestrian pursuits and the town of Hambers is no exception. There are countless horse trails allowing you to enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the area.

Another site of interest is the village of Jublains which is home to the archaeological remains of a very important Roman fortress. This site is just a 10 minute drive from the property and is believed to be the most complete Roman fortress in Europe.

One trail in particular takes you past the Chapelle de Montaigu, a local landmark which has the most breath taking views of the surrounding area. On a clear day you can see all the way to the

How to get there
What’s the best route to take from UK to La Bourgonniere?

If you are travelling with young children or you just fancy less time in the car you may decide to travel with Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth to Le Harve or Caen. Caen being the closest port to La Bourgonniere just over 1.5 hrs drive. The overnight ferries often being a favourite, you can book an overnight cabin (also a decent bar on the ferry for those who fancy a few beers to get the holiday started) and arrive well rested with only 1.5 hours drive or so until you get to La Bourgonniere. Usually these ferries dock at around 6.30am/7.00am in France. This is a great way to start your holiday and a real adventure for the kids!
