  • Badminton rackets and shuttlecocks
  • Tennis rackets & tennis balls
  • Swingball


There is a bike hire shop in Villaines-la-Juhel (but we have not used it ourselves so do not have any further details). There is also bike hire available in places such as the town of Mayenne, where you can cycle along the towpaths, and the Adventure Park near Saint-Léonard-des-Bois for mountain biking.

For insurance reasons, we do not rent out bikes but we do have a two men's and one ladies bikes that you may use locally subject to doing so entirely at the rider's own risk. You will need to provide your own safety helmets and any other necessary clothing so please bring these with you if you think you might need them.

Also, please note that these are for your casual enjoyment only and will not be maintained during your stay, e.g. if you have a puncture or other issues you will have to rectify these yourself. Any damage must be paid for by you.

Splash Pool

Mayenne can have long periods of fantastic weather in summer but it is not in the South of France!

Weather permitting, the pool is available between the middle of June and the middle of September. It is a 3 metre round "splash pool" intended for cooling off in hot weather and although it is an amenity we hope you will enjoy if it is available, we do not promote the provision of a swimming pool and no charge is made for it in our rental rates.

Please, therefore, view this as a bonus if it is available, not something you specifically book.
