Interaction with guests
We will be on hand to meet you as you arrive, give you the keys, and then meet up with you on the lawn for a glass or two of wine and answer questions, give advice, show you round etc. For the rest of your holiday, its up to you whether you 'do your own thing' or come and chat, help feed the animals, walk the goats, or just relax in the garden or round the pool or jacuzzi. Help yourself to lettuce, herbs, pears, plums, nuts, apples and grapes from the garden.

Thanks for the lovely comments. At the park in Gorron there is also rafting and swin-golf. Horse riding is also nearby. Fougeres has a land train and 10 pin bowling and of course the Chateau. So lots more to see and do next time!

About the neighbourhood
Our region of France is usually a few degrees warmer than the South of England, and early Spring and late Autumn are often very mild, making it ideal for off-season breaks.We live in the countryside on the edge of Carelles village. About 200 yards away is the village itself and the Bar/Restaurant that also acts as the village shop, where you can buy essentials and locally made bread, or have a mid-day meal or just a hot chocolate or a Pastis. Farming, cider and Calvados make up the way of life around here, and as a result, there are lots of restaurants in the area serving good food (with wine and cider usually included in the price) for around 12 eurosThe slow pace of life is what makes a holiday here so relaxing. Walking and cycling is easy because the back roads are so quiet, and fishing... more
