Location

Situated in beautiful rural countryside La Petite Martiniere can be found in North West France in the Pays de la Loire, region 53 Mayenne, close to the borders of Brittany and Normandy. There is easy access from / to all the major ports via the excellent road network both toll or free (you choose), you’ll find the driving far more relaxed and pleasurable than the cut and thrust of the UK. Calais is a 5hr motorway journey, whilst the nearest port of Caen is less than a 2 hr trip with various others in between. With your booking confirmation we will include comprehensive directions including sat-nav codes to ensure a stress free journey to us.

The area surrounding us is agricultural, with cows, sheep and horses grazing in nearby fields, and in season crops of Maize, Barley etc. an interesting fact of our area is that there are more cows than people; we have no immediate neighbours, no noisy main road close by, the gently rolling landscape is perfect for walking or cycling with our local village only 2 kms away, there you will find 2 boulangeries, a small supermarket, 2 banks, a bar / tabac, doctors, pharmacy, and hairdressers.

The nearest town is Ernee (8kms.) which has large supermarkets, garages and a wide variety of other shops and services including a chocolate factory (with shop). Mayenne town is only 13Km boasting chateau, masses of shops and restaurants providing all you may need.

As with most French towns and villages they have weekly markets where you can find a variety of goods including locally grown produce. Further away (20 mins) you will find the city of Fougères home to the largest medieval castle in France, with the famous Mont St Michel, Normandy beaches etc. only a short distance further, or in the opposite direction Le Mans, Vitre, Saumur etc. are all within easy reach. There are many commune (public) lakes and rivers in the area the largest of which is the river Mayenne, there is the opportunity to fish any of these should you wish to, however you will be required to obtain licences and or permits, all of which will be available (at a cost) at the local tourist office or tackle shops and more often than not also in the bar tabac.
