  Come and stay in this magical place. Enjoy its natural setting, fascinating history and dreamy country house atmosphere …

Half way between Paris and the Atlantic, near the westbound motorways, the Domaine de CHATENAY is ideally located for holidays or business, deep in the rolling Manceau countryside, a stone’s throw from Le Mans, city of artistic and historical interest.

Be a guest in a French château…

This charming hotel, steeped in history – an 18th century residence built on the foundations of a 12th century country house, standing in its large, hundred year old park – offers a warm and friendly welcome to individuals, couples or families, for holiday stop-overs, family gatherings or … weddings.

The two suites and six rooms, all tastefully decorated, are named after some of the often colourful characters who have lived at CHATENAY during the 750 years of its history. Your hosts, Bogusia et Benoit DESBANS, will be happy to tell you about them and the part they played in the history of the Maine region.

(Mediaeval lords, Knights or Officers of the King’s bedchamber, Imperial officers or diplomats who all played a part in the history of the Maine region, sometimes in the history of France itself.)

All the facilities of a business hotel

Just 55 minutes from Paris by TGV, the hotel at CHATENAY is equally well suited to host residential conferences or day seminars, for small and medium sized businesses just as much as for big-name companies, and to organise prestigious events and functions.

Room and car park with wheelchair access. Private estate of around forty hectares with weekend hunting, fishing in the moat or horse riding available if booked ahead.
