Rental description

Welcome to Jean Luc and Maryvonne’s spacious lodge (self catering) on their organic farm in Pays de la Loire! Once serving as the barn, the lodge has been restored and comprises of four pleasant bedrooms, each with its own bath. In addition, there is a bigger room with four beds, which can also be rented individually. Guests have access to a big shared kitchen and a common room to get to know other visitors. Most of them will probably be on the terrace, bathing in the sun.

Bring along your children. Your hosts wish to give guests a great family holiday to remember. Maryvone and Jean Luc love tending to their cattle, and would gladly teach young visitors to milk the cows and show them some fun activities around the farm. Mom and dad should also just be able to switch off, enjoy the scenic landscape that Normandy has to offer, all while supporting the local community and the environment!

Sustainability criteria

Renovations were undertaken using environment-friendly material such as lime, hemp and wood, the latter of which they have tried to buy from the local region as far as they could. Furthermore, the building materials have also been chosen for brightness to save on light and large heating requirement. Photovoltaics heat the water on the estate and a wood chip oven provides the heating. The wood comes from the groves. Electricity on the estate, including the quarters of the owners, is generated entirely by solar panels.

Sustainability, as the title suggests, also extends to the farming practices. All the livestock is allowed to roam free on the property. Guests have a good chance of spotting cows with their calves while out on the grass or the terrace. Your hosts also host a farmer’s market of local producers on their farm.

Situation and surroundings

Country: France
Region: Pays de la Loire
Location: 53500 Montenay

The organic farm is a great starting point for hikes and biking in Pays de L’Ernée. It is an absolute joy to tour Normandy’s hilly landscape. Horse riders are also close to an equestrian farm.

In terms of cultural attractions, art-lovers can enjoy the studio of Louis Derbré, a sculptor. You should also look up the opening hours for the open-air museum, where he displays his oversized sculptures to the public. Of course, the banks of the Ernée are also a verz pleasant sight, we can also recommend the picturesque village of Chailland.

A little further out, there is an attraction dating back to the middle ages, Chateau Fougères, the oldest preserved castle in Europe, comprising the oldest bell tower in Brittany. That is about 20 km away. The coastal attractions of Mont Saint Michel and Saint Malo are roughly an hour away by car.
