About the property

A charming renovated farmhouse with countryside views. Quiet and relaxing.

'Vinviers' is a 19th Century longere with fabulous history and stunning views of the Charnie Forest and surrounding countryside.

Our B&B offers 2 rooms with private bathrooms, and prices quoted are based on 2 people sharing a room.

This traditional French farmhouse has seen many developments, and now after much renovation it offers quality Bed and Breakfast in a peaceful and tranquil environment.

Our spacious bedrooms have private bathrooms, with shower, WC and shaver point, as well as free wireless internet access.

We have a terrace for eating and drinking outside, a summerhouse next to our lake, and stylish lounge and dining areas if you want to sit inside.

We are well located for those visiting Le Mans in the Sarthe, and also the Mayenne and Loire regions, or a perfect stopover for those travelling down through France.

We make every effort to ensure your B&B stay in France is as comfortable and relaxing as possible, and whether you are here for a Le Mans racing event or a visit to the beauty of rural France we will be pleased to help and advise you where we can.

Golf and motorsport are great passions of ours and we are happy to offer help and advice if you need it.

Please note, we do not offer a gite, and our minimum stay is 2 nights. Thank you.

About The Owner

We moved to France permanently in 2009 from the South-West of the UK after having the house as a holiday home for 4 years. After much renovation and tasteful changes (done 99% by ourselves) we now offer relaxed B&B and enjoy the chance to help visitors get the most from their stay with us and their visit to the Mayenne and Sarthe regions of France.

We love golf, cars, bikes, motorsport and the surrounding wildlife, and have much experience and knowledge of Le Mans and the events in and around the circuit as well as the beautiful old part of the city which is often overlooked.

There are 4 golf courses all within 40 minutes, so we can advise you in this area if you are interested in playing nearby.

The Owner purchased this bed and breakfast in 2005

Comfortable, luxurious, restful, with two fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing countryside, idyllic location, and two warm, friendly and interesting hosts in David and Monica. They were ever ready to provide tips for places to visit, along with some local insight into why you would want to go there! They were more helpful than I could ever have expected!

The rooms were very clean and well appointed, but also comfortable with a homely feel, definitely better than any stale and sterile hotel. Breakfast was a mix of fresh fruit, yogurt and local breads (croissants were my particular favorite).

Absolute must stay if you are anywhere in the area. You will not be disappointed.

Probably the most famous is Le Mans, the beautiful old city, the museum and circuit of the 24 hour race.
