HAZEL BAILEY purchased this barn in 2004
Why HAZEL BAILEY chose Maine-et-Loire

We are surrounded by large towns from 45 minutes to 1 hour away, and about 3½ hours to Paris, and in open countryside. We are close to St Malo so that day trip are possible to Jersey .
Lovely local villages weekly markets.
What makes this barn unique
We think that it is very important having a large play area for the children. This gives the children time to play and explore leaving the parents to relax and not worry. They can also fish, whether an experienced fisherman or amateur its all good fun.
And guaranteed to catch a fish , Mostly Carp
