"La Basse Cour of Ancinnes" is a picture-perfect B&B on the border of Lower Normandy and Pays de la Loire: a traditional 18th century farmhouse surrounded by exceptional gardens (including a wildlife pond of 2500m²) and with views over the countryside to the forest. We are in a quiet, secluded setting thanks to our extensive grounds, yet the village centre and shops are just 200m away. We're also just 8km from the medieval town of Alençon and 40km from Le Mans - see below for sightseeing tips. We offer you 3 immaculate en-suite guest rooms with large, modern showers. All bedrooms have their own character, with exposed beams and individual decoration. Radio, hair-dryer, toiletries, free Wi-Fi included. Guest sitting room with tea, coffee, TV, tourist info and library. Outside you have terraces and gazebos for your relaxation where you can take in the gardens and wildlife. Near to home you can explore the lovely villages and valleys of the Alpes Mancelles and the Perche; the medieval towns and antique shops of Le Mans, Alençon, Sées and Mayenne; dozens of delightful gardens and châteaux. We are also centrally located for day trips to beautiful Chartres Cathedral, Mont St Michel, Monet's Gardens at Giverny and the D-Day Beaches.
