Local area information


The French Manoir is located in a quaint small village in Mayenne Department 53 in Pays de la Loire. The area is a wonder for history lovers with opportunities to visit local castles (châteaux) and medieval villages such as Lassay-les-Châteaux, Domfront, Sainte-Suzanne, where historical stories of kings and queens, scholars and saviours echo through the streets. The most visited Le-Mont-Saint-Michel, Saint-Malo, Avranches and Granville (where you can find the house and museum of world famous fashion designer Christian Dior) are easily accessible from the French Manoir. 

The area also offers many nearby activities such as fishing, cycling, horse riding, hiking, and golf. The popular spa town of Bagnoles de l'Orne is only 15km away and, for the motorsport enthusiast, Le Mans just over an hour drive away.
