Interaction with guests
Price shown is for 2 people sharing a room. Pleas enquire for price of booking for 1 person only.
Guests have their own access to the house and garden.
Janet is English and Didier is French. We are both available at most times. We love to talk to visitors that stay with us, but also respect their privacy if required.
The owners use the main entrance and their living area is separate to the guests. However, they will be on hand should they be needed.
Their dogs do not use the garden when there are guests, as there is plenty of land for them to run elsewhere.

Looking for a B & B within easy reach of Le Mans this is the one,charming hosts Janet and Didier so friendly and welcoming nothing too much trouble for them. Clean comfortable beds, felt at home in this rural cottage, would highly recommend staying there. Convenient to local amenities,supermarkets,petrol station,restaurants.

Management response:

It is a delight to cater for visitors as friendly and considerate as Keith and Janet. I hope they decide to make a return visit - I will look forward to that!
