Turning into the long drive your first glimpse of La Ruche, in the peaceful isolation of its pretty park will gladden weary travellers. You’re treated to restored 18th-century elegance along with luxurious beds and bathrooms, quirky vintage finds (Tim’s a keen ‘up-cycler’….) and drawing rooms to repair to.
Rebecca loves to cook so do dine in – on the best local and seasonal food; French-inspired with English twists; preceded by a friendly cocktail. Breakfasts are generous too with great pastries and preserves.
Arrange a special celebration here, or a Le Mans group visit and every detail will be seen to. Take the path to the Sarthe river or hop in the car to visit local villages and châteaux. Swim in the lake at Sille-le-Guillaume; head for the Alpes Mancelles for kayaking, hiking, biking.
