Saint Pierre des Landes
Saint Pierre des Landes is a small village in the Ernee Commaunite des Communes. Ernee is just 7 km away to the East. The village lies just within the boundaries of Ille et Vilaine, Brittany. Fougeres is a 15 minute drive to the West. Saint Berthevin and Laval are an hour to the South and Pontmain is a shorter drive North. Saint Pierre is typical of many French villages, pretty and surrounded by gorgeous open countryside with numerous attractive towns and villages nearby. The village itself has a small but well-stocked friendly supermarche, a fishing lake, Church, War Memorial, garage, Mairie with an attached Pompiers and a very good Boulangerie – run by a most charming and friendly lady.
Luitre Dompierre is the main village of the Dompierre Community, about 7 km West of Saint Pierre des Landes and correspondingly closer to Fougeres. A short drive South takes you to the delightful and huge Lake complex at Chatillon en Vendelais (another pretty village in its own right!) The village is raised above the surrounding countryside so has fine views in every direction.
Luitre has a large Pharmacy and a Doctor, imposing Church and Sunday School, fishing lake, automat and carwash, La Poste attached to La Mairie and a surprisingly large (and most helpful) Renault Garage (the new tyres are excellent). There is also another good boulangerie, also run by a lovely and energetic lady., as well as a charcuterie and bar. There is a small Elan petrol station and repair garage in the village centre. Basically, everything you need.
