between heaven and earth
SPORTING EXPERIENCES IN THE HEART OF THE COUNTRYSIDE
Besides the hiking activities, which restore your energy levels and gently reconnect you with the present time, there are lots of other sports activities to enjoy!
In search of energetic activities to do with family or friends, why not experience something unusual in a hot-air balloon, test your sense of balance, climbing the rock faces or glide smoothly over the water of the lake of Gué de Selle in a canoe! Groups of friends, students looking for motivational challenges, clubs and sports associations will find this gîte offers group accommodation on the doorstep of their activity.
GENTLE ACTIVITIES IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Want to enjoy the great outdoors?At the activity centres of Fenderie, Gué de Selle or Saulges, take part in a fun session with friends or teenage kids who want to have fun and exert themselves a little (but not too much)!
On land, refine your swing at swin-golf. On the water, enjoy the tranquillity of the lake of Gué de Selle to have a go atwindsurfing or canoeing. Volleyball and tennis courts along with football pitches are available for some competitive matches for those who can't sit still!
Take out your bait and your boots, because this is a place for fishing enthusiasts! Expanses of water and rivers (the Erve, La Jouanne, La Vaudelle) of category 1 or 2 are rich in fish. Sit at the edge of the water and test the fly-fishing technique: the river Erve towards the caves of Saulges will be a great place to try this out!
For a 100% fishing trip, rent a cottage specially dedicated to this activity, with a lake or river nearby and premises for the equipment. A peaceful holiday is guaranteed!
CLIMBING AND POTHOLING IN THE VALLÉE DES GROTTES DE SAULGES
Test your agility and work your muscles by climbing the rock faces that surround the caves of Saulges! On this site managed by the Departmental Federation of climbing,160 climbing routes can be explored, both for beginners and improvers. There are initiation sessions that are open to anyone every summer.
The more adventurous will be able to practice potholing, supervised by a specialised instructor! Prerequisites: not being scared of sliding down into the bowels of the rock and coming out again smeared with dirt!
The best thing for a climbing or caving holiday in the heart of the vallée des Grottes de Saulges: book the Gîte des Falaises. You will be in the heart of this Natura 2000 site ... and you only have to go a few meters after all that effort for your richly-deserved shower!
TREAT YOURSELF TO A UNIQUE FLIGHT!
This is not a flight of lyricism, but you can sing your heart out from the top of your propane-inflated balloon! Opt for another view of the valleys of Mayenne andclimb aboard a hot air balloon, departing from the Coëvrons and in particular from the medieval city of Sainte-Suzanne.
A gentle breeze that takes you above the woodland and no car noise at all... so make the most of this unique experience. Oh! Aaah! You will be amazed at the views: cows and longhouses seen from above, a Mayenne region that you never knew was so hilly, pretty colours in the fields ... in short, everything!
