Set in 1¼ acres of rural landscape, at the top of a quiet lane above Le Port de Juigné, on the Sarthe River, this charming cottage opens to a well-kept garden and lawn, leading to a sunny and secure pool and patio, nestling into the tree-topped cliffs of an old marble quarry. To the south and west, the house enjoys views through trees to sloping fields, where sheep graze in the summer months, and to the west over island treetops to the haunting Abbaye de Solesmes, whose Benedictine celebrations such as plainsong Vespers are open to the public. A baker and café lie within 1km and further shops and restaurants may be found in Sablé sur Sarthe, 3km to the west. 45km to the east lies Le Mans, famous for the 24 hour motor racing event in late June, and the baroque music festival in late August. Other nearby attractions include a golf course and watersports at Sablé sur Sarthe, and the handsome medieval village of Sainte Suzanne at 30km. The ferry port of Caen is just a 2¼ hour drive away.
