Property Description

The beautiful Chateau de La Manay comfortably sleeps 18: 16 in

the château and an additional two in the guest house. During your

stay you will enjoy relaxing around the large swimming pool and

exploring the numerous castles of the Loire Valley. Chateau Chateau

de La Manay is decorated with a combination of contemporary and

antique-style furnishings, and each bedroom has its own en-suite

bathroom. The castle is situated on 36 acres of secluded grounds in

Sarthe, adjacent to Lombron, a small and enchanting village of just

1,800 inhabitants, near Le Mans in the Loire Valley. Chateau de La

Manay includes beautiful tree-lined paths, apple and pear orchards

and a one and a half-acre lake. The chateau is even surrounded by a

moat. Pastoral views of the moat and pond can be enjoyed from the

dining terrace that overlooks the grounds. The lake teems with fish

the whole year round and hosts an interesting variety of birds and

fowl. The grounds also include well-kept boulevards and paths

bordered by weeping trees and an extensive orchard. Walks on the

property cross grassy fields and wooded areas, and join other

well-marked lanes and trails in the surrounding countryside. The

Château de La Manay was initially a 15th century building with

18th century additions and has been lovingly restored. Its

renaissance architecture is found in many châteaux of the Loire

region. The nearest international airports are Paris

(180km) and Rennes (170km) whereas the nearest port is Caen

(170km). The chateau is located in the Pays de la Loire region,

which is within easy walking distance of a quaint village that has

its own bakery, butcher cafe and pharmacy. The Pays de la Loire is

the perfect escape, whether you’re looking for adventure or a

relaxing break. The local waterways lend themselves to leisurely

stops along the river and there are river cruises that offer lunch

and dinner. Echoes of history abound in the castles, abbeys,

churches and the bustling market towns which continue ancient

traditions. A visit to the world renowned 11th century Solesmes

Abbey, where monks still sing Gregorian chant, will transport you

back to the middle ages. The property is ideally located for

numerous interesting day excursions. Paris is less than a 2-hour

drive by car or just 55 minutes on the famous TGV (high-speed

train) from Le Mans. Brittany and Normandy are both within easy

reach of the castle. You will be able to explore the many castles

of the Loire Valley and return to the castle each night. The

Château is also just a short 20-minute drive from the famous

motoring city of Le Mans. The old town and its beautiful medieval

historic quarter is one of the preferred medieval and renaissance

locations. It is also one of the most filmed, appearing in many

French movies, including Cyrano de Bergerac. A beautiful 18 hole

golf course with a château setting is approximately 10 kilometres

away. Exciting hot air balloon or helicopter rides above the Loire

castles with photos shoots are available nearby. There is a very

nice swimming lake about a 10 km away and even some small sailing

possible there. Bicycles are at your disposal and the ride to the

lake is through beautiful small country roads. There is horse

riding in the village as well as 3 nice tennis courts. At
