La Rivere description

This 19th-century French barn has been converted into a modern, bright holiday home, refurbished using many original features such as exposed beams and timber framework. There are basic supplies in the villages of Souday and Valennes. You have a choice of shops, restaurants, tennis, riding and market in Vibraye, 7km, or for a wider choice, the town of St-Calais, 15km. For the active there’s a swimming lake, mountain bike circuit and children’s games at Lavaré, a 25-minute drive, and an 18-hole golf course at Bellême, 50km. The forest of Vibraye has 6000 hectares of oak with extensive trails and cycle paths. Le Mans with its Gothic cathedral and famous 24 hour race circuit, is approximately an hour’s drive. A holiday in this area would not be complete without visiting the Loire Valley, approximately 90 minutes’ drive, famous for its châteaux (Chambord, Cheverny, Blois and Amboise), and wines (Chinon and Saumur). Chartres is an hour’s drive and Paris is 2 hours by train or car.Laundry room. Double bedroom with adjacent room for cot, patio doors, en-suite bathroom/WC. Two twin bedrooms, one with patio doors.
