Gite in Normandy - La Guépinière
Our Gite in Normandy is situated in the hamlet of Condé sur Sarthe (Department 61 - L'Orne) on the outskirts of the historic town of Alençon and at the base of the Foret d'Ecouves. La Guépinière dates to the 15th century and was once a hunting lodge serving the local gentry at the nearby châteaux.

Alençon which is famous for its lace, offers weekly markets, stunning architecture, a number of restaurants, bars and cafes. Lower Normandy is also famous for its horse breeding and the Haras du Pin National Stud Farm (which is open to the public) is well worth a visit. In the gite we have a wealth of information on activities and places to visit and the Alençon Tourist Office is extremely helpful and they speak extremely good English.
The Gite at La Guépinière is a mere 3 km from the centre of Alençon and equally close to the most beautiful forests where you can see deer, wild boar and an amazing variety of birds.
Drive into the surrounding countryside and aquaint yourself with beautiful villages and châteaux.
The Gite is ideally situated for those wanting accommodation for the Le Mans 24 hour motor race (or the 24 hour motor bike race) as we are only just over half an hour from Le Mans by car.
