1 story house in LE GENEST SAINT ISLE, France

We live in a house of 150m2 , in the criss-crossed by hedges and trees countryside, near Laval, a town of 60 000 inhabitants with the quality label of "Arts and History".
You can go around to discover nice villages and nice small towns.
From home, it's easy to visit very famous sight-seeings because we are at the croosroads of the Brittany, the Normandy and "L'anjou" and "La Touraine". So, you can drive with an hour and half to Le Mont-Saint-Michel or Saint-Malo, with two hours and half to les Châteaux de la Loire or The Normandy Landing Beaches. With an hour driving, you are on a sand beach. You can go to Paris by train in an hour and half or by car in three hours.
Our countryside is a very good place if you like hiking on the foot paths or riding by bike or horse (there are a lot of ranches).
In our village, you can find smalls shops or services like the butcher's, the baker's, the minimarket, the pharmacy, the medical house the hairsalon... You can find big stores at ten minutes drive from home.
During the summer, a lot of free street shows and concerts are offered in Laval and in the other towns.
Our neighbourhood is very kind and welcome you warmly if you want to know better the locals.
We already swapped our home six times and it was always nice for us and our visitors. We like meeting new people in the country where we go. Now, we travel without our kids.
