The TV has access to both English and French channels and has a DVD player. Fresh eggs can be collected from the nesting boxes of our free range chickens. There are plenty of places to explore throughout the area, whether it be by car, bike, or walking. Bikes can be hired from a nearby town or bring your own. Warning: it is a hilly area. Our aim is to ensure our guests have an enjoyable and relaxing stay. We are close enough to give you any assistance you may need but far enough away for you to enjoy your privacy. We are situated less than two miles from the village of Bais (prono. Bay) This typical French village is complete with Tabacs/ Bars, Bakers, General Stores, Garage, Pharmacy, Bank (with ATM), and a Post Office. A small local market takes place outside the church every Wednesday. The Mayenne area of France has much to offer. It is farming country and most of the villages and towns hold events throughout the summer, including village fetes, exhibitions, fishing competitions and live music, most of them free. The famous historic town of Mayenne, perched either side of the river, has it's own Chateau, now a museum and the Basilica de Notre Dame. It has plenty of quality boutique shopping as well as it's twice weekly market. A favourite pastime is sitting in the square, sipping a coffee or wine whilst enjoying the local Plat-du-Jour, in the sunshine. In addition to our local swimming pool: at Sillé-le-Guillaume, just 20 minutes away. there is a wonderful lake with a sandy man-made beach. The area offers horse and donkey rides, boat trips, bike hire, bars and restaurants. For the bargain hunter or the curious, there are also many weekend 'vide greniers' (literally 'empty attic'), the French equivalent of a car-boot sale, but where a whole village is usually involved, with locals selling off the items they've had stored since last year's Vide Grenier at their village. Generally there are refreshments available and sometimes, street entertainment. Within a 30 minute car journey there are lots of small medieval towns that retain their charm and history for you to discover and explore. Sainte-Suzanne with its 1000 year old walled town with an ancient fortress and château. Jublains with its extensive Gallo-Roman remains. Lassay-les-Châteaux, with one of the best examples of a fortified medieval château in France, complete with a working drawbridge and barbican. There are plenty of activities and the area is particularly noted for walking/rambling, cycling, fishing, horse riding, exploring ancient woodland or just driving through the beautiful countryside and forests. The Alpes Mancelles are a short drive away with the beautiful villages of St Leonard de Bois and St Ceneri on the banks of the River Sarthe and there's plenty of scope for peaceful picnics - or try your hand at kayaking down the river. 40 minutes away is Le Mans, the home of the famous racetrack and it's 24 hour race, amongst many others. The town has some amazing contrasts between the medieval town with it's wall and cobbled streets, it's post war rebuild and it's new modern buildings. There are regular markets taking place throughout the city, but a favourite is the Sunday morning one, with the colours and smells of the food market and the array of brocante and flower stalls. This area has much to offer everyone. Locally it is referred to as the 'France like it's supposed to be, The French secret'. We look forward to meeting you and sharing the secrets.More

Arriving at La Ronciniere we were pleasantly surprised that this wonderfully beautiful gite looked better than it does on the pictures on the site, and that is saying something. It is away from it all and so peaceful in it's own small grounds. The building...More

La Ronciniere is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting. We enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine in the courtyard and listening to the relaxing sounds of rural life. Absolute bliss to get away from the hustle and bustle, but still have all the...More

La Ronciniere was just what we needed for a chill spot after a hectic two month tour of Europe. Quiet (except for the quaint sounds of farmland), peaceful, charming, all those pleasant adjectives that describe bucolic surroundings. The village was less than 2 miles away...More
