About the property

Barn in Loupfougeres, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire, France - Peaceful Village Location, Short Drive To Stunning Beaches At Man Made Lakes

Just off quiet village square, recently renovated and extended. With sun terrace/patio. 3 main bedrooms and two bathrooms. Original living room with large ax cut beams and a modern galleried room with stunning views over the countryside. The house is over several levels. 100 yards behind the house is a ex railway track now turned into cycle track and goes for many kilometers through stunning countryside and a stop of at cafes for a refreshing drink is a bonus. There a number of bikes at the property that can be used (5 i think) free of charge.

We bought the house 8 years ago and have loved doing it up and creating the new living room from a shell .Kids now wanting a different holidays. We hope to retire here in years to come (its getting closer) The speed of life is so peaceful and locals so friendly we spend holidays and long weekends there.

A lovely house. Thoughfully equiped and provides spacious, comfortable accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to spend a holiday, suitable for large or small groups. Nice outside space in which to relax and enjoy the peace, with the property in a great location to explore this beautiful and historic part of France.

Prior to our arrival we communicated several times with owner Simon, and always found this a pleasant experience. Simon has been very helpful and swift to answer any queries.

This property is great value for money and we look forward to returning to Loupfougere for more happy holidays.

We stayed in this beautiful house for two weeks and fell in love with it. The photos on the ad and, particulalry, the bargain price do not do this house justice.

In an extremely quiet hamlet, it is the perfect base for exploring the local area. Great outside patio for long evenings watching the sun go down.
