Enjoy a romantic weekend away in Sarthe in a château

Whether you are travelling as a family, a couple or alone, the hotel de la Groirie offers you a breath of fresh air and lush green surroundings in Sarthe (72). Enjoy a well-earned weekend break to unwind away from the hurly-burly of daily life in our delightful hotel. Do you fancy a relaxing bike ride? Now is your chance! Or perhaps an opportunity to read what you don’t have time for in your daily routine; the owner is an avid reader of detective novels and other fiction, and has a stock of these at the hotel for you to use. And if you feel like a game of croquet, bowls or molkky, we can cater for this too! Board games to while away the hours in rainy weather or when the temperature soars... A long, romantic stroll for two in the Groirie park to discover the majestic trees planted here many years ago... A yearning for a swimming pool and the chance to sunbathe... Or perhaps a massage or a course in barefoot nature walks (“feet nature”)? This is also possible (subject to availability). In short, if not moving from la Groirie (and moving around la Groirie) is what you fancy, there are no shortage of ideas. And, of course, there is always the possibility of visiting the château (reserved exclusively for our guests).
