La Locherie

The Mayenne Region

ChateauLa Locherie is in the Mayenne department of France, in the Pays de la Loire. This region is just South of Normandy and East of Brittany. Like these bordering departments, the Mayenne is an area of dairy farmers and cider makers. It is a region of patchwork fields across gentle rolling hills with stunning views over the wide horizons. On clear nights the sky is ablaze with stars in a display that is simply breathtaking. Peaceful and relaxing, Mayenne is an ideal base for walking, cycling, riding, angling and sightseeing holidays. La Locherie is only half a dozen miles from both the Normandy and Britanny borders and there are fine beaches within an hour's drive. The spectacular Mont St Michel is also easily accessible and the property is just 4 miles from Pontmain, which is the second most visited religious site in France.

The Normandy landing beaches and other sites significant to World War II history are within reach, as is the western edge of the Loire valley. For those who just have to visit the capital, Paris is 1 hr 30 mins by TGV from Laval station but there are enough shops in Rennes to keep even the most hardened shopper busy for a day.
