Welcome to Gîte-Milvain, in the heart of the countryside between Gorron and Fougerolles du Plessis in North West France. Milvain is a tiny hamlet, noted on maps dating back to the 17th Century. It lies in a peaceful farming region with arable crops and dairy pasture. The area is also the setting for the novel “La Bête de Milvain” by Jean Grangeot, 1853 but the only “beasts” these days are the wildlife, including buzzards, kites, swifts, deer, hares and many butterflies.
