CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE FRENCH COUNTRY PROPERTY!

Cosse-en-Champagne Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'HARDANGE' is a charming and comfortable French country property. Some of the construction dates back to the 15th Century. The name means 'House on the Butte' in Celtic. Nicely renovated in the mid 1990's, it combines modern convenience with old world charm.

Located 220 kilometers (140 miles) southwest of Paris, about halfway between Sablé sur Sarthe and Loué in the department of the SARTHE (72) and two miles from the small village of Chevillé. For a precise geographic location, one can consult a detailed map by going to the website: viamichelin (road map) or Google.

The area is quaint and charming, agricultural, and rural farmland dotted with old and charming small villages. The city of Le Mans is located 30 kilometers (18 miles) to the East. Easy access by highway from Le Mans or Paris (five miles from the A 81 highway exit) and by the TGV (high-speed train) to Sablé: One hour from Paris. The SNCF train station of Sablé is nine miles away from the house.

The property (three hectares or seven and a half acres) includes four buildings (the main house, a smaller, older house not renovated, a barn, and a stable) and stands in the center of many acres of grazing farmland and cereal fields, surrounded by lawn and hedges at the end of a 300-yard private access road. The environment is charming, very quiet and safe for children (no ponds and nearby roads). The local people are very welcoming and hospitable.

· Large living-room with fireplace

We used to live and work in Paris. Strong urges to get out on week ends and short holidays. We found the property through a friend who already had one in that area. Spent a fortune fixing it up. And then we got relocated to California in 1998. We have done all we could to keep the house and go there as often as possible. Renting it certainly helped!

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1988

It has lots of charm, very quiet and peaceful. Sleeping is a delight. The locals are kind and welcoming. We have good friends there that we could not have the same relationship with if we only got together in Paris. Access from Paris is fast and easy. Tours to the sea are convenient.

Every visitor will have a different perspective on the benefits of the visit. Be it the house, the area, the weather, people they meet, restaurants, museums, walking in the rain, watching birds, floating down the river, doing nothing... As they say over there: 'il y en a pour tous les gouts'
