Driving to St Germain de Coulamer

The fastest way to reach us is to go to Le Mans, by the A10, then A11 motorway, (Exit "Le Mans Nord, Sille-le-Guillaume"). After the toll, you will come to a rotary and take the first exit to "Alençon". Follow the road; after a minute or two, there will be a second rotary, where you bear right (still direction Alençon) and, finally, after about 3/4 km, a third rotary, where you will take the third exit to "Sillé-le-Guillaume". Follow the road to Sille-le-Guillaume (28 km, about 30'). In Sille, take the direction "Villaines-la-Juhel" and follow the road for about 9km, (past "La Boissiere") and turn right to "St Germain de Coulamer" which you'll find after another 2½ km.

The Last Mile

In St Germain de Coulamer, at the church, take the D222 towards St Aubin-du-Desert. At 2 km, just after a little bridge, the mill will appear on the left.
If you get to the manor, you've gone too far. If you need more information, call us, we speak fluent English. Remember to call the week before you come.
