This charming, ready-to-move-into stone longère has been sympathetically restored throughout providing comfortable and spacious family accommodation, ideal for a permanent home or as a holiday get-away. Good sized but manageable gardens, with a large enclosed barn and terrace provide plenty of opportunity to relax or enjoy the outdoors in the heart of rural Mayenne. Set within a small, quiet hamlet on a no-through road, it is conveniently located for the local village with bio bakery, or just 15 minutes drive to the market town of Sillé le Guillaume, which includes a 15th century chateau, a nearby forest and 32-hectare lake with beach, offering numerous outdoor activities for the summer or winter months. Sillé le Guillaume provides excellent train links to Paris (1.5hr) and Le Mans (20 mins), making this a popular tourist area. Cross Channel ferries at Caen, just 1h 50m drive away. Read more ...

This house’s story began in the early 18th century and continually evolved to become a working farm, hence the multiple additions. The bread oven as well as the traditional granite window frames remind us of the long history this building holds.
A full restoration and many upgrades have been carried out in order to meet both regulations and current domestic & comfort requirements :
- Roof
- Timber Frame
- Tiles
- insulation
- Electricity
- General & sanitary plumbing

The thick stone walls will keep your home (and yourself) cool during summer heat waves (i.e July 2019 - 40c Outside / 23c Inside) without air conditioning.

A full energy report is available.but here are the main headers:
Energy consumption: D 153 KH ep/m2 / year
Carbon foot print : B (6)

The main room fireplace is equipped with an insert providing and distributing heat to the upstair’s rooms as well as the ground level of course. Should the weather turn very cold, a simple yet economical electric heating could efficiently complement the fireplace. Please note that wood is widely available in the region.

The Barn:

The closed area is large enough to park two vehicles. Hidden behind is where we currently park our car. A porch could easily be built to keep your car off the weather. This would free up the barn space for a recreational space such as a gym or playground….
Thank to the overall height of the barn, extra space can be explored with a mezzanine.


The land is split with an unpaved road shared by the local farmer, one of the quirks of living in a agricultural environment. The farming traffic is rare enough to be part of the overall charm.
This track leads to many trails allowing to enjoy the nearby forest, its many natural treasures and historical heritage.


Despite the remote location, all services are easily available by mainstream providers.

Evolution & Potential :

The current fully functional and autonomous studio could be extended to create a second home of its own. The current workshop could be turned into a lounge, and a walk laundry & Bathroom, while upstairs space could easily be converted into three bedrooms.

The total living area would be around 90m2 (+ 1,300 m2 land ) which at the current market rate could turn it into a rental accommodation ranging around 500 to 600 Euros monthly revenues. This would suit vacationers as well as permanent residents.
