Bagnoles de L'Orne: This is a glamorous little spa town with fabulous thermal baths and beauty treatments galore. The town has a lakeside casino and is brim full of cafes and wonderful restaurants. For the sportsperson there are tennis courts, boats, pedalos, mini-golf and horse riding. Or, if that is a little too energetic, take a relaxing walk around the lake or through the surrounding forest and drink in the atmosphere. You will fall in love with this town.
Domfront: Visit this glorious medieval town and be transported back in time. Wander through the narrow, winding, cobbled streets flanked by curiously quaint medieval houses and restaurants. Wind your way up the hill and you will discover the most spectacular views over the entire valley. A photo-opportunity not to be missed.
Sille le Guillaume: The kids will love this. A beautiful lake set in the midst of spectacular woodland. A beach, adventure playground and plenty of eateries and cafes. Need we say more..
Well, choosing a holiday cottage is a really difficult thing when they all look the same, are about the same price and promise the same "friendly welcome". We stayed at La Provotiere in 2004 under it's previous ownership, and when looking for somewhere for a family break featuring 3 families in 2008 we chose La Provotiere again; taking all the accomodation!
The location is great - about an hour from Caan, so easy to get to, and the accomodation is a few minutes drive from local towns and supermarkets. There is quite a lot to do in the vicinity - markets, chateaus with moats, great reastaurants etc and enough to keep any family going for a week or so.
The accomodation is clean and practical, and well equipped for any use - for example enough pots and pans if you want to eat in, and the owners are really accomodating and great at finding anything that isn't included.
Overall, we will return every few years as La Provotiere offers a great value not too far from home!
We really enjoyed our stay here and would go again.
Very clean and tidy, Trevor was very welcoming and gave lots of advice without imposing on our holiday.
The gite is situated in a very nice part of France, with very friendly people and places to visit.
The web site description was accurate and yes we would definitely recommend this gite to friends.
Dear Trevor and Julia,
We had such a wonderfull time again! The garden was even more beautiful than three years ago. The children loved the swimmingpool, the garden, the chickens and of course your enthusiasm and kindness! It was great that we had time to chat and to have a drink. ;-)
We even discovered more nice, interesting and beautiful spots to visit! So it was a whole different vacation than three years ago, but with the same hospitality.
It's a great place to discover and maybe an even better place to return to. As well for adults and children.
Thank you for all!
Henrike, Wouter, Hannah (5) and Niek (3)
We thoroughly enjoyed our week with Trevor and Julia.
Nothing was too much trouble. They listened to our expectations of our break with our two ten year olds and offered lots of ideas of where to go, what to see and suggestions for places to eat. The arrangement encourages other guests to share the facilities, play and relax together, once the children have retired for the evening.
The regular egg collection( or egg expectation runs) from the chickens, kept the children running back and forth, and there was a lot of excitement when there was an egg!
The pool was warm and clean, the children made full use of the facility and having the ability to dry the costumes and towels on the line, meant we were ready to indulge at every opportunity.
The gite was well equipped, it was nice to find a hair dryer had been supplied.
We had a very good holiday, our hosts were genuinely nice people who appreciate, that this is your break and do their best to make sure you get the most from your time with them.

We have just returned from our 3rd holiday here - and are looking forward to our return visit! It is just a perfect 'get away from it all' holiday destination for our family of 2 adults and 3 children aged between 3-9 years - the houses, the wonderful hosts Trevor & Julia, the location and the surrounding area & places to visit - we could not recommend it highly enough as the ideal relaxing family break.
We have been holidaying in France now for several years, and we decided to travel less this year and chose La Provotiere for three families that holiday together. Its about a 90 minute drive from the ferry at Caen, which is very convenient, and I have to say we had the most fantastic time. Its quite rural, which we like, so very quiet and ideal for cycling and walking. The nearest town is Madre, however there isn't much happening there, but about 8km is a lovely town called Lasse la Chateau which is lovely, has lots of bars, restaurants and a mini mart. There is also an Intermarche supermarket there. Trevor and Julia made us feel very welcome and looked after us really well, and all of the children had an amazing time in the pool or playing cricket in the big back garden. I would highly recommend staying here.
The local village of Javron les Chapelles has a boulangerie for your breakfast bread and croissants. Madré has an Eco-Museum depicting rural life in the 19th century, and sign-posted country walks. You will love exploring Mayenne (allegedly France’s best-kept secret), with its streams, rivers, and forests. There are wild flowers in abundance, and you may see a red squirrel or a kingfisher. This region has some of the clearest skies in France. The starry nights here will take your breath away! Not forgetting the many churches, castles and Roman remains. Fifteen minutes away is the spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne with its excellent restaurants, traditional shops, golf course, lake, casino, sporting facilities and a large supermarket.
And for the car enthusiasts, Le Mans is only 65 minutes away and the Classic Car Convention at Javron Les Chapelles, which is held every August, is 5 minutes down the road.
