Nearby Food and Drink Shopping


There are local street markets in Villaines-la-Juhel and Evron and much bigger ones in Mayenne, Alençon, Fresnay-sur-Sarthe and Le Mans. Most boulangeries are open Sunday mornings but close another day of the week instead. During the holiday season it is not unusual for boulangeries to close for their own holidays but you will always find that another nearby boulangerie is covering their patch or another local shop or bar is acting as a "depot de pain".


Supermarkets


The nearest are in Bais. The directions to both are basically the same. Coccimarket is privately owned (a bit like e.g. a Spar) with a good range and is known for its high quality but sometimes pricey goods. Carrefour Contact is a privately owned franchise of the huge Carrefour group and although not cheap compared to the big supermarkets it has an excellent range and is very convenient, especially with its long hours and ideal for guests arriving later on Saturdays, after the shops have closed.

Boulangeries, Convenience Stores & Other Facilities

There are boulangeries and convenience stores everywhere but those below are the nearest to La Goupillère and we encourage you to use them! We see part of the price of you enjoying this area as making a contribution to the local economy, i.e. the nearest village shops. Put bluntly, "use it or lose it"! Many of the buildings housing these businesses are owned by the commune but are run by individuals. Without what is effectively a commune subsidy they would not be viable and many, particularly old people, would suffer and the area would lose a lot of its attraction. As tourists, as it is with us residents, it is your duty to spend at least a little in these shops. But, certainly as far as the boulangeries are concerned, would you really rather buy supermarket bread and desserts.....
