The beautiful Chateau de La Manay comfortably sleeps 15 guests. During your stay you will enjoy relaxing around the large swimming pool and exploring the numerous castles of the Loire Valley. Chateau de La Manay is decorated with a combination of contemporary and antique-style furnishings, and each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom.
The castle is situated on 36 acres of secluded grounds in Sarthe, adjacent to Lombron, a small and enchanting village of just 1,800 inhabitants, near Le Mans in the Loire Valley.  Chateau de La Manay includes beautiful tree-lined paths, apple and pear orchards and a one and a half-acre lake. The chateau is even surrounded by a moat. Pastoral views of the moat and pond can be enjoyed from the dining terrace that overlooks the grounds. The lake teems with fish the whole year round and hosts an interesting variety of birds and fowl. The grounds also include well-kept boulevards and paths bordered by weeping trees and an extensive orchard. Walks on the property cross grassy fields and wooded areas, and join other well-marked lanes and trails in the surrounding countryside. 
The Château de La Manay was initially a 15th century building with 18th century additions and has been lovingly restored. Its renaissance architecture is found in many châteaux of the Loire region.

Location

Lombron, Pays de la Loire, France

The nearest international airports are Paris (180km) and Rennes (170km) whereas the nearest port is Caen (170km).
The chateau is located in the Pays de la Loire region, which is within easy walking distance of a quaint village that has its own bakery, butcher cafe and pharmacy. The Pays de la Loire is the perfect escape, whether you’re looking for adventure or a relaxing break. The local waterways lend themselves to leisurely stops along the river and there are river cruises that offer lunch and dinner.
Echoes of history abound in the castles, abbeys, churches and the bustling market towns which continue ancient traditions. A visit to the world renowned 11th century Solesmes Abbey, where monks still sing Gregorian chant, will transport you back to the middle ages.
The property is ideally located for numerous interesting day excursions. Paris is less than a 2-hour drive by car or just 55 minutes on the famous TGV (high-speed train) from Le Mans. Brittany and Normandy are both within easy reach of the castle. You will be able to explore the many castles of the Loire Valley and return to the castle each night. The Château is also just a short 20-minute drive from the famous motoring city of Le Mans. The old town and its beautiful medieval historic quarter is one of the preferred medieval and renaissance locations. It is also one of the most filmed, appearing in many French movies, including Cyrano de Bergerac.
A beautiful 18 hole golf course with a château setting is approximately 10 kilometres away. Exciting hot air balloon or helicopter rides above the Loire castles with photos shoots are available nearby.
There is a very nice swimming lake about a 10 km away and even some small sailing possible there. Bicycles are at your disposal and the ride to the lake is through beautiful small country roads. There is horse riding in the village as well as 3 nice tennis courts.
The nearest international airports are Paris (180km) and Rennes (170km) whereas the nearest port is Caen (170km).
