We have just returned from staying in this property in St-Fraimbault and found it was a great base for our week long holiday. I stayed there with my husband and 5 year old son. It has a large kitchen well-stocked with appliances and utensils, spacious bedrooms and a lovely terrace to sit out on, overlooking a beautiful garden.
The village itself is exceptionally pretty, and we all enjoyed walking to and around the lake, and my son loved the play area. It is a peaceful village, and was a good base for us as we went off in the car most days to explore the area (we to le Mont St Michel/Alligator Bay, Domfront, the zoo at Jurques, Mayenne - all fantastic), however it is quite quiet so may not be for someone who wants lots happening on their doorstep. The roads are easy to navigate and drive on, and we enjoy seeing different places and the area, so this was good for us and we found the property and it's location interesting and friendly.
Great property, and great owners - they answered my questions before booking very quickly and were very friendly. Thank you!
