Further Details: Fougerolles Du Plessis is blessed with an assortment of facilities. There is a small but well stocked Intermarche complete with a fuel station.

It's good too! It is open for lunch Tue to Sat, and in the evening only by prior appointment for large groups.There is also a bar in the village that serves excellent pizzas. We have a butcher, a baker (recently awarded a prize for the best Brioche in the whole of France), a Post Office, a Credit Agricole bank with a cash dispenser, and a brocante type shop. There are many cider presses in the vicinity that offer free tastings of both cider and Calvados. In the nearby town of Desertines (5 miles away) there is an English style pub called the "Red Lion" that serves fish and chips and curry. Just around the corner there is a French style cafe called "Chez Martine" that is not quite as good as the Lion d'Or but is worth a try nevertheless as it is also superb value at 12 Euro per head. The towns of Gorron, Ernee and Mayenne are close by where there are many more places to eat and drink. In the town of St Hilaire du Harcouet, approx 15 minutes away, you will find a superb Italian restaurant called "Le Soleil d'Italie. There are plenty of opportunities to indulge in your favourite activities. Fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, walking, and cycling are all available locally. If you are into military history you are a hop, skip and jump from the Normandy beaches and there is plenty of it up there.


Home from home cottage

By Kitty W on 31-Aug-2017

We wanted a relaxing break with all the home comforts, which we found here. The cottage is spacious with lots of storage. A well equipt kitchen with everything from an orange squeezer to a roasting tin, along with a dishwasher, washing machine and iron.. The cottage has lots of DVD's, CD's, books and Sky TV... Though no internet which was perfect for us. The garden has a secluded dining area where we ate all our meals and enjoyed late into the evening. The village is only a 10 minute walk away which includes all amenities except on a Monday, like most of France! There are lots of pretty villages to explore but if you are looking for a chilled getaway with the ability to some home cooking, drink lots of local wine and enjoy peace and quiet, then this is a great place to stay

Very well set out and well equipped cottage

By John V on 28-Jun-2017

We found the cottage very comfortable and well equipped. We were lucky to have very warm dry weather and so were able to eat most of our meals on the pleasant patio. The village of Fougerolles was a little sleepy and the Friday market was very small and a bit of a disappointment. However the Boulangerie was excellent and the Intermarche adequate for everyday needs including some good fish and wine. Lunch at the Lion d'Or was a highlight - but go early to make sure of a table and be hungry! Amazing value at 13.5euro for 4 courses with coffee and drink. Wifi does not seem to be available in the village, but at Desertines some 8km down the road is an English run pub (The Red Lion) which has wifi (and a good menu, though we didn't try it). A very good centre for the area. We very much liked Fougeres with its old castle and Vitre with its mediaeval centre. Mayenne, Domfront and Mont St Michel are within fairly easy driving distance and the countryside locally is delightful. Within a few km of Fougerolles is the ruined abbey of Savigny which is a lovely peaceful spot. The Forest of Fougeres was also pleasantly shady on an extremely hot day. Beware though some of the smaller towns on a Monday when many shops and cafes are closed

Lovely house with private patio in great location

The house was easy to find from the great directions we received from Shuna. We were victims of the Dover queue (where we sat in the traffic for over 19 hours) so when we eventually arrived the welcome pack waiting for us was extremely welcome indeed!!!! A very nice touch. The house is lovely. All of the rooms are spacious and there is a lot of rustic charm about the place. We had everything we needed. I must also mention that the beds are extremely comfortable. The weather was kind to us so we enjoyed many BBQs on the very private (& sunny) patio. The village is a very short & easy walk away. Even the Intermarche supermarket is easy to walk to (which is really useful when you've drunk all the wine and need to go back for some more!) It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the supermarket - which is on the far edge of the village. The supermarket is excellent. A very good range of stock - you can get everything (don't forget your own bags). There is a huge range of wines to try at very reasonable prices - and we did our best to get through them all. The supermarket also has petrol, which is cheapest we saw in France. We travelled a lot during our 2 week stay. Some lovely days out not far away. Mont St Michel was about 1 hour away - a very nice day out. Vitre and Fougeres are also good for a visit. Slightly further afield we travelled down to St Suzanne - a lovely medieval village which was about 90 minutes drive. The WWII beaches are about 2 hours drive, as is St Malo - which is a lovely town with lots to do. Driving is easy - the roads were very quiet, and we passed through many beautiful villages on our journeys. We have already recommended this house to friends & family. Shuna is so very helpful - all of our emails have been answered without delay. So glad we found "Le Petit Coin De Paradis" - we had a perfect stay. Thanks Shuna.

We visit France frequently and found this cottage to be of a high standard and well equipped with a large garden. About a 10 minute walk to the village where there is everything you need, can particularly recommend the butcher and baker. Shuna always responded to emails promptly. We will be returning next year

Quiet and private, with good facilities on hand

By Daniel L on 18-Aug-2015

The cottage is at the end of the village, which has a baker, butcher, newsagent/bar/tabac, and a restaurant. The baker has excellent bread and is known for its brioche. There is a small Intermarché (open daily, including Sunday mornings) at the other end of the village, with a petrol station. In the house itself, three good-sized bedrooms and a bath/shower room sit above a large sitting-room, a dining-room and a well-equipped kitchen with a range (gas hobs, electric oven), fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing-machine. Outside, there is a sizeable patio with a table and chairs, and a barbecue. The patio isn't at all overlooked, and is great for sitting out, eating, and relaxing. Above is a large, raised lawn area, perfect for games or sunbathing. Though the restaurant in Fougerolles was closed for annual holidays during our stay, we found a lovely place near the shrine church in nearby Pontmain (the Saint-Amour, usually lunchtime only). Nearby attractions include Mont St-Michel and the town of Fougeres, with its beautiful gardens, handsome castle, and large weekly market. There are also the abbey ruins at Savigny le Vieux, and the quiet beach at le Bec d'Andaine is only an hour away. Do take note of the description and bring your own bedding and towels! The house is well-maintained, and we found everything very much to our satisfaction.

Lovely, well equipped cottage with plenty of space and big garden. Ideally situated to explore all the Normandy landmarks as well as the historic Mont St. Michel, which is simply amazing. Beautiful villages nestle alongside historic medieval cities. It is a region that has everything and this gate is an ideal place to stay when visiting. Highly recommended.

Super cottage very well equipped & comfortable. The double bed was very comfy. Nice sunny outside space with table & chairs. The location is rural & there is a lake near the village.nice. Village is in walking distance with everything you need & friendly people. A good place to eat in the evening is La Table Normande in Ernee. The Red Lion in Desertines has internet access & very friendly owners. We are 4 mature adults & really enjoyed our stay, we would definitely recommend. Excellent value & the owners offer very good customer service.

This house is exceptionally well-appointed and very tastefully decorated. It's extremely spacious and has a lovely homely feel to it. We would have liked to stay much longer. There's a large well-kept garden and a terrace, which look perfect for summertime. The local village and surrounding countryside is pleasant. This would be ideal for a family.
