The estate is in a quiet location with no immediate neighbours. Around forty kilometres from Nantes, it is close to a charming commune with a population of 2,800, where you'll find all the local shops you need.
The town, on the banks of the River Erdre, is known as "The Little Canada of the Loire Atlantique". The Erdre is considered to be one of the most beautiful rivers in France. It also boasts a 445 acres lake, the largest navigable inland body of water in the Loire Atlantique. A protected natural area, it is an ideal stopover for many migratory birds and has become a popular spot for water sports and swimming. It is also a great place for walking and mountain biking. There is also a lush 1853 acres forest nearby.
The nearest town (population 10,000) is eight kilometres from Le Manoir. It has a lively, pleasant town centre with many shops, schools, a market, cultural activities and a small river port.

The manor house faces south and dominates the right bank of the Erdre, which flows below. The opposite slope is wooded.

It is a two-storey manor house with an adjoining pavilion, a large outbuilding and a pretty little chapel.

The manor house has undergone extensive restoration work by the current owner, using state-of-the-art materials and carefully selected decorations to achieve a remarkable result.

The ground floor comprises a south-facing living room (35m2) with light colours, a floor of fine old terracotta tiles and a fireplace with wood-burning stove, followed by a very cosy winter lounge (30m2) with old terracotta tiles, wood panelling and an impressive tufa fireplace, and a ceiling with exposed oak beams. Beautiful oak cupboards flank the fireplace. A WC.
A beautiful blue shale spiral staircase leads to the 1st floor and the attic.
On the 1st floor, a first bedroom in light tones with parquet flooring, offering a view over the river. A second large bedroom with parquet flooring, old wood panelling concealing large cupboards and a tufa fireplace. A beautiful, recently restored bathroom, with Burgundy stone giving it a warm, natural feel. A WC.
On the second floor is a large attic (60m2) with insulated roof and exposed roof timbers.
The pavillion could be brought up to date.
On the ground floor, a large dining room communicates with the kitchen, which has a fireplace and leads to a boiler room and a storeroom. A shower room and toilet complete the ground floor. WC.

The outbuildings:
-400 m² farmhouse with former stables, 3-car garage and various sheds. Structure in good condition.
-A pretty renovated chapel.

A tree-lined driveway leads to the 35 acres estate. The meadows are open and bordered by the river.
In front of the manor house, an esplanade bordered by a stone wall allows you to contemplate the landscape. A shale staircase leads up to the meadow.
Around 700 trees were planted fifteen years ago, mainly oaks, maples, beeches and cedars.
