About Debra Worboys

We are artists living in the West of England and Les Ecoubleres is our home. After many years of searching for a French retreat we stumbled across this beautiful property that we have lovingly restored. We hope that all who visit Les Ecoubleres will enjoy it as much as we do and will be inspired to return.

Debra Worboys purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Debra Worboys chose Mayenne

After visiting the area for several years my partner and I eventually discovered this rambling, rustic, property and fell in live with it instantly. Originally an ancient settlement dating back to the 15th Century, the property is set in 6 acres of open land, attracting a rich and diverse variety of wildlife.

Conveniently located within easy reach of the local amenities, les Ecoubleres is the perfect retreat, offering peace and tranquility without being isolated.

Since purchasing the property we have carried out extensive renovation work and the house now offers comfortable, modern accommodation.

What makes this cottage unique

Les Ecoubleres has all the charm and character you would expect from a traditional French Farmhouse. The tranquility of the surroundings makes it the ideal place for creative inspiration and the perfect rural escape for anyone seeking time out from a busy life.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bradshaw family: August 2014: We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage with such a gorgeous view. We had a very peaceful relaxing time, we definitely will be back.

Mr & Mrs Jacobs, July 2014: Lovely, lovely place, quiet and so relaxing. The cottage is really nicely appointed - we like it so much we hope to revisit in the New Year.
