In the countryside near RENNES (Brittany) LE GENEST SAINT ISLE, France.For Easterholidays, we would like to go to Belgium . In summer, we would like to go to Canada.

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.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Rennes - 70 km

Notre maison se trouve à 2,5 km d'un village de 2000 habitants où vous pourrez trouver les services de premières nécessités ( pharmacie, médecin, boucherie, salons de coiffure, supérette, boulangerie, cafés).
Nous habitons en pleine campagne au milieu d'un paysage bocager encore bien préservé. Les habitants de notre chemin sont joviaux et agréables.
Les amateurs de petites randonnées, ou sorties VTT profiteront des nombreux chemins creux aux alentours de notre maison.
Les promenades sur le chemin de Halage au bord de la Mayenne, entre la ville de Mayenne et Chateau Gontier en passant par Laval, sont aussi très agréables.
Une autre voie verte qui part de Saint Berthevin (à 10km) emmène les promeneurs sur une ancienne voie ferrée à travers la campagne mayennaise.
La ville de Laval (60 000 habitants environ) située à 10 km de chez nous, est une ville d'Arts et Histoire, avec un musée des Arts Singuliers situé dans un château datant du Moyen-Age, des vieilles rues où il est agréable de se promener. Une programmation culturelle assez riche y est proposée.
Ceux qui sont intéressés par le tourisme fluvial trouveront aussi leur bonheur sur la Mayenne qui est navigable.
Pour les amateurs d'équitation, de nombreux centres équestres se situent aux alentours de Laval.
La visite d'un musée insolite " Le musée Tatin" est possible à peine à 30 km. (on adore!)
Dans un rayon de 50 km, de nombreux petits villages et villes sont à visiter: Vitré, Fougères, Sainte-Suzanne, Chailland...
Rennes, plus grande ville, est à 45 minutes de la maison.
Pour les escapades un peu plus longues:
- le Mont-Saint-Michel à 1H30 en voiture
- Saint-Malo (ville fortifiée au bord de la Manche): 1h30 en voiture
- la plage la plus proche: 1H30
De nombreuses autres possibilités sont offertes. Si notre région vous intéresse, n'hésitez pas à nous contacter , nous nous ferons un plaisir de vous renseigner car nous aimons notre région.
