What is les Petites landes?

This amazing place was discovered and bought by my Swedish grandfather and my Norwegian grandmother in 1949, who met in Paris in the late '30s and started a family. They were designers and artists both and almost never traveled home to Scandinavia. Les Petites landes has a large park-like garden with a vegetable garden and is located on a hill 20 km south of Angers. The house´s oldest part is the existing kitchen, which was built during the 1600s. The rest has been built over the centuries. All furniture is bought at flea markets over the years. It is so nice!

You travel to Angers (train from Paris, 1H20 approx) on your own and at your own expense. Accommodations are provided on our farm les Petites landes, where the living is simple and pleasant in this artist's country house, which has been in the family for three generations. Of course we can also help with other housing proposals if desired, la Ferme Auberge Montrivet (rural hostel) is nearby.
