About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Original stone walls, original beams and antique tiled floors combine with a 21st century kitchen and bathroom plus roomy bedrooms to make this an authentic and comfortable home away-from-home.
Downstairs offers a large kitchen/dining room and salon. Upstairs you will find one queen-bedded room, one twin-bedded room and one bathroom with shower. Luxurious sheets and towels provided.
The farm is not a working property. Our neighbor grazes his prize charolet cows on 5 fenced acres. The animals do not have access to our courtyard nor the private garden area. There is an apple and pear orchard behind the guest house. Garden furniture and barbeque provided for you to enjoy the long, warm summer evenings.
Our area: Le Perche is truly the unsung gem of Orne, birthplace of the majestic Percheron horse breed and second home to many savvy Parisians, artists and writers. In fact, the New York Times calls Le Perche, 'The Last Terroir.' If you Google ''Le Perche'' you will see an article from the New York Times Magazine dated March 2007 which fully describes the charms of this region.
Things to do: Nearby you'll find a challenging 18-hole golf course in Belleme, well-kept tennis courts, trout fishing, the National Stud Farm, famed forests with mushrooming expeditions in the autumn months, untold numbers of country manor houses and castles to explore, reasonably-priced antiques, fine dining, organic cheese makers, chocolate makers, organic farmers, even an organic snail farm.
Where you'll be staying: Our farm is in the tiny hamlet of Le Gue de la Chaine, 3 kilometers from Belleme and 6 kilometers from the regional capital of Mortagne au Perche. Traveling by car, you are 2.5 hours from Paris, 3 hours from the channel coastal resorts and landing beaches and 2 hours from the Loire Valley. There is good train service to all parts of France from the neighboring town of Nogent le Rotrou.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
