Peaceful country B&B

5 on July 24, 2017

There aren't enough praises I can say about this beautiful B&B and its wonderful helpful owners. The place is in the open fresh country air and its absolutely silent at night, no light pollution and no noise, I finally could sleep. The bed was comfy, the balcony was a pure delight and the breakfast was 10/10! I cannot recommend this hotel high enough and suggest everyone stay here.

A beautiful gem of a B&B in the heart of the countryside

5 on May 26, 2017

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 3 days whilst we visited the Sarthe region of France. The host were so welcoming and considerate, the old farmhouse is simply stunning and outside dinning was simply divine, good honest home-country-cooking. The location is set right at the heart of nature, surrounded by forest with many walking trails, yet at the B&B itself there is wealth of animals to keep even the most die-hard animal lovers amused including dogs, cats, Horses, foals, hens , etc. Overall I would rate this B&B highly, close to the city and the famous racetrack yet at the heart of the countryside, perfect !! we look forward to returning one day and feeding the hens there daily breakfast!!1

Best stay ever

5 on April 05, 2014

we were on a tour of France and this was the best stay ever. We were greeted with red wine on arrival by Mark and Tina. They have a beautiful home with gardens and country views to die for. After a delicious evening meal we retired to our comfortable room with its own patio with table and chairs. This was the only B and B to give us a kettle for a proper cup of tea and eggs for breakfast which Mark expertly scrambled, we were treated like old friends and you couldn't have asked for anything more. We will definitely be returning but next time for longer. Highly recommended.

A heavenly Retreat

This is a most delightful Bed and Breakfast with Paul and Tina being very welcoming. The place is set in peaceful and beautiful countryside. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable, we had the room with the balcony. To arrive after a long drive and be given a complimentary glass of wine, to sit and contemplate the view from the balcony was heaven. The breakfast the next day was substantial, certainly didn't need any lunch!!

Really nice atmosphere.!

We stayed at this lovely B & B in July 2012, Mark & Tina looked after my wife and I so well, it really was a nice atmosphere.! when we arrived we were surprised by so much open countryside and gardens full of flowers. Our room was clean with wooded beams and a jacuzzi bath.. our bed was huge and extremely comfy, we had a kettle with english teabags in our room which was a godsend. The food was a good standard and for breakfast we had plenty of choice and great scrambled eggs with ham & cheese! We fell in love with all their little hens and their fluffy heads. Highly recommended for a relaxing weekend break.

A beautiful place to stay !

5 on May 30, 2012

My friend and I stayed at Les Cheres Meres on our way to the south of france, we were greeted by Mark and Tina with smiles and they sat us down in the garden with a glass of wine, their house is stunning, I dont know how they keep it so clean and tidy with all their animals as well to cope with... our bedroom was more like 5 star it had a massif balcony wow.! we watched the edge of the forest with binoculars that were supplied to us by Mark. the bed was comfortable and we both slept really well, I live in the country so am used to the quiet, but their place is absolutely silent... we loved the chickens and fed them our left over toast in the morning.. Im actually investigating buying a couple of hens now, our eggs were so good. Highly recommended, it is a beautiful place to stay and we will definately come back !
