The property is on a very quiet country lane, just under 1km from the village of La Chapelle au Riboul which is itself equidistant ( approx. 12km )between the market towns of Mayenne and Villaines la Juhel. The channel port of Caen ( Ouistreham ) is 1hr. 45mts. away, and there are the main line railway stations of Le Mans and Laval, both less than an hour's drive.
The village has a junior school, a doctor's surgery, a garage, a popular restaurant/ depot de pain, and a very useful agricultural store that stocks a range of hardware, tools, ironmongery, paint, and gardening items.
The Mayenne department has golf courses ( 45 minutes drive ), canoeing and boating facilities on the river Mayenne and on lakes, horse riding, tennis, and countless opportunities for walking on well sign-posted paths in the country and along the banks of the river.
