One of France’s most beautiful villages, constructed on a rocky promontory, Sainte-Suzanne, is 250 km from Paris westwards on the way to Brittany. 35 km from Laval (TGV train station with 70-minute links to Paris), 48 km from Le-Mans (TGV train station with 55-minute links to Paris), then Évron via the TER train line in respectively 15 and 30 minutes. A slip road on to the A81 Paris-Brittany motorway is about 15 km away. 7 km from the village of Évron with all amenities, a market, shops, primary and secondary schools, cultural and sports centres as well as a TER train station.
The lively town of Sainte-Suzanne has all local shops, unusual restaurants, bohemian boutiques and numerous events including medieval fetes as well as theatre and classical music festivals. A superb plain, composed of irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches, extends between the Charnie forests and the Coëvrons hills. A must for history and hiking enthusiasts!
This L-shaped residence spans three levels, constructed over cellars with stone pillars. The foundations are laid on rock. The slate roof was recently redone on the south and west sides. The walls are built of sandstone and the stone has been left exposed both outside and inside. The wooden door and window frames contain double glazing on the castle square side.
The attic, which could be converted, has skylights, old terracotta floor tiles as in most of the rooms and exposed beams.
The paved courtyards, including the inner courtyard with its wooden terrace
This property is reached via a first paved courtyard, set behind gates that face the castle. A stone archway on the west side leads to a second courtyard with an exit out into a narrow street. This same planted courtyard is enclosed by high walls and features a wooden terrace with lighting.
The outbuildings are topped with local roof tiles and used for miscellaneous purposes. They are all in a good general state of repair. One, standing in the first courtyard and facing the entrance, is laid out as a bedroom. The other outbuildings, in the rear courtyard, include a boiler room, a storage area and a garage. An outside stairway leads to the cellar.
Stone, wood and terracotta take pride of place here as does the peace and quiet guaranteed by two successive courtyards, the second of which creating a wonderfully private area. Not forgetting the garden-orchard, nestling next to the ramparts, which provides a superb spot just a short distance from the house for contemplating the countryside. The numerous vestiges of its ancient origin inside the residence in no way diminish the modern-day home comforts that could, if so desired, be extended to the attic. The village could be seen as the epitome of the region’s wealth. Its heritage, together with cultural events, has earned it a much-deserved reputation without any of the disadvantages of the crowds as cars are prohibited in the town.
