La Basse Cour B&B is a Normandy farmhouse providing Bed & Breakfast accommodation near Alençon on Normandy's southernmost border with Pays de la Loire, with the bonus of beautiful gardens and forest views.
Since 2005 our B&B accommodation has offered a characterful alternative to Alençon's hotels: a stone-and-timber farmhouse dating from 1780 with three fresh and airy en-suite guest rooms (chambres d'hôtes) in the village of Ancinnes on the edge of the Perseigne Forest, handily placed for the A28 between Rouen and Le Mans.
La Basse Cour B&B is in an ideal location for a relaxing cross-channel holiday or long weekend break in France, while for those wishing to visit famous sights we are centrally located for day trips to Chartres, Mont St Michel, Monet's Gardens at Giverny and the D-Day Beaches.
Near to home you can explore gardens and chateaux; the lovely villages and scenic walks of the Alpes Mancelles; the rich countryside and forests of Lower Normandy; the manor houses of the Perche; medieval towns of Le Mans, Alençon, Sées and Mayenne ...
La Basse Cour B&B is just 10 minutes from the A28 motorway at Alençon, between Le Mans and Rouen. We have secure off road parking for cars and motorbikes - we're a biker-friendly B&B.
"We holidayed in France for twenty years, visiting guest houses and hotels in virtually every region - eventually we decided to take the plunge and open our own bed and breakfast in Normandy, between Alençon and Le Mans, where we can share with guests our passion for gardens, wildlife and the countryside."
