About the Property
Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Located 220 kilometers (140 miles) southwest of Paris, about halfway between Sablé sur Sarthe and Loué in the department of the SARTHE (72) and two miles from the small village of Chevillé. For a precise geographic location, one can consult a detailed map by going to the website: via Michelin (road map) or Google.
The area is quaint and charming, agricultural, and rural farmland dotted with old and charming small villages. The city of Le Mans is located 30 kilometers (18 miles) to the East. Easy access by highway from Le Mans or Paris (five miles from the A 81 highway exit) and by the TGV (high-speed train) to Sablé: One hour from Paris. The SNCF train station of Sablé is nine miles away from the house.
The property (three hectares or seven and a half acres) includes four buildings (the main house, a smaller, older house not renovated, a barn, and a stable) and stands in the center of many acres of rural farmland, surrounded by lawn and hedges at the end of a 300-yard private access road.

Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: We used to live and work in Paris. Strong urges to get out on week ends and short holidays. We found the property through a friend who already had one in that area. Spent a fortune fixing it up. And then we got relocated to California in 1998. We have done all we could to keep the house and go there as often as possible. Renting it certainly helped!
Why the Owner Chose Chevillé, France:
It has lots of charm, very quiet and peaceful. Sleeping is a delight. The locals are kind and welcoming. We have good friends there that we could not have the same relationship with if we only got together in Paris. Access from Paris is fast and easy. Tours to the sea are convenient.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Every visitor will have a different perspective on the benefits of the visit. Be it the house, the area, the weather, people they meet, restaurants, museums, walking in the rain, watching birds, floating down the river, doing nothing... As they say over there: 'Il y en a pour tous les gouts'.
