Overview

About the property

Well appointed Gite within easy reach of many touring spots

Nestling in the rolling rural bliss of Mayenne, the 5 acres of Les Gages has many secluded areas in which parents can relax and unwind, while their children play in the fields, the heated swimming pool, on the trampolines and in the games room, knowing that they are enjoying themselves and are totally secure. At Les Gages there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

And on those occasional wet days the children can chill out in the games room.

Out of season the tranquility of Les Gages will suit those who want a superb dawn chorus and some quiet and rest during the day.

About Janice Davies

After working and living overseas from 1969 to 1998, Graham, a Telecomms Engineer and Janice, in PR, decided that retirement at 55 was not for us. Both with family backgrounds in Hospitality, we set off in 2000 for France with two cars, two dogs, two cats, a parrot - and a dream.

When we saw Les Gages we fell in love with it. Some trials and tribulations later, we have turned it from the proverbial pig's ear we found into the silk purse we dreamed of.

Janice Davies purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Janice Davies chose Brecé

We love Les Gages and the surrounding area too - Mayenne - rural France at its best, very much like Devon was 40 years ago.

Within a year we were on first name terms with all of our neighbours – even the Brecé Maire, Msr Goussin. We found that when visiting French friends and neighbours "aperos" need not just be before a meal and can be at anytime and lasts as long as you want it to !
