Competition Description

The winner and up to three guests will stay for a week, self-catering, at Maurice’s House, in the grounds of the 18th-century Château de la Ruche north of Le Mans. A former outbuilding of the château, the two-bedroom house has been restored in a pretty, pared-back style, with exposed beams on the upper floor and a big rustic kitchen.

Beyond the grounds of the château lies la France profonde — deeply rural and full of delicious things to eat and drink. St Céneri le Gérei, listed among the country’s most beautiful villages, is only 30 minutes away by car.
