Sightseeing

We have been to all of these places ourselves and tried them out, so ask us if you'd like to know more. They represent the places most commonly visited by our guests and visitors while they are in the area.

We can also recommend visiting the town of Mayenne whose castle now houses an excellent archaeology museum, the old town areas of Laval and Le Mans which combine excellent examples of medieval architecture with a selection of charming restaurants and interesting shops.

The caves at the Canyon Distance 200m; 5 minutes on foot. Allow a couple of hours for the visit. These caves were inhabited in paleolithic times and are open to the public by means of guided tours. A museum of prehistory is opening in 2017.
The mill at Thévalles Distance 5Km; 8 minutes by car or an hour on foot. The water mill at Thévalles still works to produce flour. It also has several models of mills on display.
The medieval city of St Suzanne Distance 17Km; 20 minutes by car. This medieval castle and town is perched high on a promontory next to the river Erve. Rich in history and offering spectacular views, it offers a window into the history of the area via the museum in the chataeu, and two excellent shops with artworks and souvenirs for sale.
The Roman settlement at Jublains Distance 40Km; 40 minutes by car. Jublains was the site of a major Roman settlement, and the museum and excavated buildings together offer a superb presentation of the history of both the town and the surrounding Mayenne area, including models.
