La Cretouffière is an exceptionally charming and picturesque hamlet in a secluded and self-contained setting. It consists of a number of houses, barns, porcheries and bread ovens, built of local multi-coloured granite, which we have been actively and imaginatively restoring to provide a variety of accommodation. There is evidence that there have been buildings on this site for at least eight hundred years. Located in the quiet rural department of Mayenne (Southern Normandy/Eastern Brittany) known as Pays de la Loire, we are within easy driving distance of Caen, Cherbourg, Le Havre or St. Malo. We have three cottages available; one is at the opposite end of the long-barn in which we live, and two are detached. There is also a shared 4m x 6m x 1m outdoor swimming pool generally available from late June to early September.
