Village holiday in Languedoc | Farm cottage in Mayenne

Farm cottage in Mayenne

Rent a farm cottage somewhere in Normandy, Brittany or the Loire, then spend the next week exploring towns and villages harking back to William the Conqueror. That was the plan, but it was never quite clear from the concertina-style Michelin map exactly which part of France we were supposed to be in (Le Bocage Mayennais came fairly close). After the second calvados it didn't seem to matter very much.
