In the glorious Sarthe valley, surrounded by rivers and wonderful countryside, is the elegant Manoir Les Deux Fonds. With eight bedrooms sleeping up to 14 guests, a heated swimming pool and vast gardens, this is a picture perfect place to relax and explore this charming region of the Loire valley.

As soon as you walk in the elegant entrance hall you will be taken aback by the beautifully tiled floors and the exquisite spiral staircase. This is the owner’s home, dating back to the nineteenth century and they have decorated and styled it with refined taste and charm. There is an elegant yet warm ambience and throughout the manor house you can see the owner’s passion for hunting, with many trophies and paintings on display.

You will feel instantly at home with the sumptuous living room, the classic and comfortable library and the light and airy billiard room. Keen cooks are given plenty of space in the welcoming French kitchen whilst the five doubles, single and master bedroom have pretty furnishings and lovely features, some with glorious garden views through the traditional French windows. Roll-top baths and immaculate shower rooms add to the refinement and sophistication of this unique and lovely manor house.

Long leisurely lunches can be spent under the shade of the century old trees eating fine local food with friends and family, with the sounds of the river flowing at the end of the garden. A wonderful place to relax, read a book, bathe in the sun and swim in the stunning heated swimming pool.

The Sarthe valley is full of charming villages, characterful towns, wonderful markets and beautiful countryside as well as the idyllic Sarthe river. There are some lovely nature walks near the small local village of Avoise, just over 2km away, or head a little further to the bakery, shops and cafes in the riverside town of Parcé-sur-Sarthe. Hear the old community of monks chant in the world famous Abbey Saint-Pierre of Solesmes, just 10km by car, or take a boat ride along the river in lovely Sablé-sur-Sarthe. Activity lovers will appreciate the golf, horse-riding and tennis nearby whilst there are some brilliant hikes and cycle routes in the region.

This is a remarkable area to explore, whether you head north to nearby Le Mans with its beautiful old town or south to the thriving University city of Angers. The magnificent castles of the Loire Valley can be explored or hop on a train in nearby Sablé-sur-Sarthe to the amazing city of Paris in just over an hour by TGV. If you are feeling adventurous then you could even head to Normandy in a day to visit the D-Day beaches or Mont-Saint-Michel.

In this brilliant location, not so far from Paris and north-western France, you also surrounded by rolling countryside, charming towns and picturesque rivers. Yet there’s no doubt that when you are residing in your 19th century manoir you will feel a million miles from anywhere in its sophisticated and calming surroundings.

The region of Sarthe is brilliantly located in the eastern Loire, not so far from both Paris and the ferry ports towards the north-west. It is full of charming villages, characterful towns, wonderful markets and beautiful countryside as well as the idyllic Sarthe river.

The manoir is just 2km away from the little village of Avoise on the river Sarthe.  There are some pretty nature trails and gentle walks around the village and surrounding countryside and you can also visit the village’s old lavoir.

Your nearest shops, bakery, cafes and restaurants are in Parcé-sur-Sarthe (6km), a characterful village just a short drive away, following the river eastwards. Nearby, just to the north of Avoise, is Asnières-sur-Vegre, a small ‘village of character’ on the river Vegre with some beautiful buildings, old churches and the lovely Jardin Mosaïque. Sablé-sur-Sarthe (14km) is another lovely town where you have a greater choice of facilities and restaurants and you can take a river boat on the Sarthe. Here is there is also a train station where you can get the TGV to Paris in just over an hour.

Solesmes (10km) is a pretty place to explore yet the main attraction is the Abbey Saint-Pierre of Solesmes, one of the most substantial Benedictine abbeys in the world. Originally dating back to 1010, the current community of monks has been established there since the early 20th century and the abbey church is open to visitors where you can hear the Gregorian chants.

One of the best michelin starred restaurants in the area is located in la Fleche, just 30mins away.

There is plenty in terms of activity with horse-riding within a short drive, golf and tennis within fifteen minutes and lots of wonderful walks and hikes in the region. Kids will love La Fleche zoo (33km) or the nearby Manoir de la Cour (4km), a child friendly history museum in Asnières. Those looking to explore the great chateaux of the Loire Valley shouldn’t miss Le Château du Lude (50km) or the magnificent Château de Villandry (102km) amongst many more.

Famous Le Mans (40km) is the most famous highlight of this area. It is of course well known for hosting the annual racing event, yet the city has so much more to offer. The old town has cobbled streets and 15th century timbered houses and has a wonderful museum which showcases its archaeological history. There are some beautiful parks to explore and some amazing restaurants to visit.

Further afield there are some stunning parts of France to discover. Head south to the heart of the Loire Valley to Angers (67km), the lively University city with a great café culture, or further down to Saumur (85km) on the Loire with its 10th century chateau and equestrian heritage, not forgetting some incredible wine tasting. To the north, a day trip to Mont Saint-Michel (155km) is possible or a little further to Bayeux (230km) and the amazing D-Day beaches or Normandy. Not forgetting the remarkable city of Paris, only just over one hour by TGV train from nearby Sablé-sur-Sarthe or Le Mans.
