La Basse Cour B&B is ideal for couples seeking a relaxing holiday or a weekend break in the Normandy countryside, being close to forest walks, with châteaux and gardens to visit, and centrally located for day trips to famous sights like Chartres, Mont St Michel, Monet's Gardens at Giverny and the D-Day Beaches.
Although we're close to the autoroute at Alençon and handy for stopovers, we also offer reduced rates if you can stay longer: so why not take a few days to unwind and explore the nearby 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 ...
If the area is new to you, our "Gardens" page gives details of gardens in Normandy and Pays de la Loire, or for days out visit our "Sightseeing" page.
La Basse Cour B&B is just 10 minutes from the A28 motorway at Alençon between Le Mans and Rouen, so we get a lot of requests for stopovers; but stay longer and you'll better appreciate what this location offers, enjoy the garden and grounds, see something of this wonderful region of Normandy-Maine, and benefit from a lower room rate and choice of room.
"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, to share with guests our passion for gardens and wildlife."
