"A listed historic monument lying in 100 hectares of grounds at the gateway to Le Mans"

Located at the gateway to the pretty city of Le Mans and its famous 24-hour races, with its period physiocratic design, the Château de la Groirie is a typical mid-17th century country mansion. Its construction reflects the ambivalence of a style oriented both towards simplicity and refinement, while remaining a productive agricultural estate.
The chateau is made up of a central building flanked by two wings and topped with a mansard roof. The Groirie has been listed as a historic monument for both its interior and exterior, since 1974, as have all the buildings surrounding it.
The park has a fascinating history: at times a classical French formal garden, at others a traditional English or Anglo-Chinese garden, it has always reflected the era and French fashions.

"At the heart of a one-hundred-hectare park, the Domaine de la Groirie offers peace and escapism while lying close to the heart of the city of Le Mans. The Groirie stole our hearts ten years ago, and so began a family adventure to awaken this sleeping beauty which continues to this day..."

Gaëtane et Jean-Louis Durand Lépine welcome you to their haven of peace.
