Lassay Les Châteaux











Lassay les Châteaux is a small village that stands in the north of the Pays de la Loire.  It is within the Mayenne department of France (53) and has an interesting and proud history.  However, today it is a vibrant market village, that has retained much of it's original charm and character.

With a population of just under 3,000 inhabitants, the village boasts not one, but three Châteaux within the Canton.  Two of these Châteaux are now ruins but the third, situated in the heart of the village, is a stunning example of traditional French 15th century architecture.  It's vast, imposing turrets overlook the village lake providing one of the most beautiful views in the region.

Lassay les Châteaux is surrounded by five other villages that make up the 'Canton'.  In addition, there are also smaller hamlets within the Canton, many with their own church and certainly with their own charm, that add to the overall ambiance of the area.

Local life continues at an agreeable slow pace.  However. Lassay village centre has a good selection of small cafés, shops and banks.  Everything you may want is here.  Larger superstores are only 15 kilometres away at both Mayenne and Le Ferté Macé.

Lassay Les Chateaux is easily accessible by road, standing on the D34 which runs between Mayenne and Couterne in Normandy.   It is just 90 minutes drive from the ferry ports of Caen and St Malo and two hours from the airport at Dinard.

There is a good selection of gites and other local holiday accommodation available for rent, as well as hotels in nearby larger towns.

This web site is designed for those living or working in and round Lassay Les Chateaux, as well as those people with an interest, whether that be that their holiday home is located nearby, or even if they have just stumbled across this little jewel that lies in the midst of rural Mayenne.
