Mary & Paul would like to thank all the people who came and stayed with us at La Croix au Vanneur last year, Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we are back in the UK and no longer running the bed and breakfast.

Come and spend some
time in our lovely bed and breakfast. The house is situated near a small
village called La Brulatte, 15 minutes from Laval, 40 minutes from
Rennes; Paris is 2 hours and Le Mans is an hour. Ferry ports are St Malo
74 miles and Cherbourg 130 miles. La Croix is very easy to find, close
to a motorway and on a national route. No winding gravel roads for you
to negotiate at the end of a long journey, and straight out en route to
another new area the next day.
Easy to explore the
triangle of Normandy, Brittany and the top of the Loire Valley. We are
in the department of Mayenne and from here you can visit such places as
the Normandy landing beaches, Mont St Michel, Cancale for oysters or the
rugged pink granite coast of northern Brittany, the Loire Valley running
from Nantes all the way to Orleans where you will find all the chateaux
and castles that you've dreamed of. Using either country lanes, national
roads or the fast motorways system it is easy to get around, you can see
why Mayenne is such a great place to visit . What about a day or two in
the fast lane of Le Mans or shopping in Paris, the train station is only
3 miles away at Port Brillet.
We have 3 double/twin or triple bedded rooms, 2 family rooms which will sleep 4 and more beds and cots if required. We like to think ourselves as a good base for touring holidays. We are very biker friendly with a Yamaha FJ1200 and a Fazer 600 parked in the garage. We have enough space for another 15 or more bikes or 6 Lotus Sevens under cover, and a drying room for wet clothes. Large indoor heated swimming pool, 36’ x 18’ and nearly 10’ deep, heated to a constant 28°c, which is wonderful to dive into after an enjoyable ride or drive.
Prices start at 50 Euros per room with 2 sharing which includes Continental breakfast, or start your day with a Full English breakfast for 5 Euros extra. Special prices for groups.
Evening meal by prior arrangement, we also have a petit restaurant licence, which means we can serve drinks beer and wine with food.
Or hire one of our electric Bar-B-Q's and do your own thing.
As you go through the pages of this site you may notice that it has a lot of reference to bikers, we are both keen bikers but gone is the stigma that use to surround bikers, most bikes are used as a second form of transport and the bikes can cost as much as a car and bikers like clean comfortable accommodation too. So we are not just a biker friendly Bed and Breakfast, but one that any one can use as a fantastic base for a great touring holiday for all the family young and old.
We also have wireless internet connection for those who bring laptops.
