Our gite's are located in the peaceful village of Asnieres sur Vegre. The village has been voted one of the most beautiful villages in the Sarthe region. In the heart of the village you will find the River Vegre spanned by a medieval bridge complete with shaded banks. Asnieres is nestled with 15th to 17th century houses all adding to the charm of this pretty little village. We also run the local cafe 'Le Pavillion' serving lunch daily and evening meals via reservation. We offer afternoon drinks throughout the day and a selection of tempting Desserts, or simply a pot of tea or perhaps a cocktail.

About Laura Dewsnap
We are a family run business which consists of myself Mark, my wife Nina, my mother in-law Liesa, brother in-law Ross & his wife Laura. We want our guests to have the best possible holiday experience in Asnières and for our guests to experience the laid back easy going lifestyle Asnières has to offer. We moved to France in 2006 and have never looked back. Asnières is a small peace of heaven and after a day of moving here we felt like it was home. We have been accepted by all the locals and help is always at hand. Our daily routine is always different and we wouldn't change it for the world. As well as running our gite business we also run the local cafe and provide food and drinks for locals and tourists.
Laura Dewsnap purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Laura Dewsnap chose Fontenay-sur-Vègre
While we were living in the UK we decided to combine Nina's birthday and looking for a property in France. We looked all over France from small holiday homes to chateaux but when we came to Asnieres the pure beauty and charm of the village won us all over instantly. We all enjoy being out in the countryside and also we know we don't have to go to far for life's everyday essentials.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Our gites are on the same grounds as a 15th century Manoir house with superb gardens, stunning views across the river Vegre and most of all privacy. There is also nothing better than at the end of the day to sit in the garden or at the pool with a nice glass of wine and a BBQ.

Everything about our holiday was fantastic. The accommodation had everything that we could have needed and was a brilliant lay out for our group. The grounds were really lovely, in particular the beautiful wisteria right outside the door over the outdoor table. So many lovely touches it is difficult to list them all! The pool area and gardens are perfect for young children and being able to use the inflatables and other toys was so handy.
Our hosts were incredibly welcoming and could not have been more helpful. The cafe in the village that is owned by the hosts is excellent, lovely food and ambience. Really hope we get the opportunity to come to this beautiful, peaceful village again. Thank you
The gites are perfect they have all the space you need if the weather is inclement
The weather was variable during our stay but we had more than enough space for 4 adults. When we could be outside the pool & BBQ area where perfect and as we had friends staying in the other gites we could all get together easily. We are looking forward to seeing you all in September and again next July with all our cars! Mark & Nina looked after us brilliantly and nothing was too much. It's a complete gem of a place and we will be back regularly 😀�
Great property for a family of 5. Beautiful setting. Very peaceful
The gités are set in a beautiful quiet location. Our three kids loved the pool and we enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. The old city of Le Mans is 40 mins away and well worth a visit.
A fantastic location, peaceful and tranquil. Mark and all were fabulous with their service.
A perfect location for our first overseas family holiday. The accommodation and facilities were excellent. The pool was clean and well maintained. Food at the Pavilon was great value for money. If you are looking for a family friendly quiet location this ticks all the right boxes.
Fabulous place, Fab pool and Fab owners.
We had a fantastic stay in the Wisteria gîte and would highly recommend it to anyone.
We thought Asnières-sur-Vègre and the surrounding villages were beautiful, some of the most well kept places we have seen in France. The gîte was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The showers were powerful and the beds were comfy. Lots of areas to eat and drink around the gîte - some in the shade, which is great in the blazing heat. The swimming pool and the whole pool area was wonderfully clean and there were comfy sun lounges and huge umbrellas to shade you when needed. We played boules, ping pong and plenty of card games in the shade of the pool house.
There is a huge supermarket just 15 minutes away which was really useful and had everything we needed. We spent one day away from the pool and took a trip into Le Mans. We visited the 24 hour museum and then headed into the city to go shopping. We were really surprised at how lovely Le Mans was - such a beautiful old town and lots of boutique shops as well as many large high street shops.
On our last night we visited La Pavillon and had a superb meal with some lovely wine which was a great way to end the holiday. Mark and his family are wonderful hosts and they provided us with everything we needed for our stay.
A beautiful place to stay very peaceful Mark, Nina and family were lovely very accommodating x
We had a wonderful time at Mark and Nina's home in asneries-sur-vegre it is a beautiful and peaceful place very relaxing enjoyed many walks around the village, kids loved the pool and the pool house with barbecue was a great place for everyone to get together. Our gite was lovely had everything we needed, lots of space inside the gite and outside for the kids to explore we will defiantly be returning to this beautiful little place in the world x
