What to Do When Visiting

Maison Conti is open throughout the year. Each season brings its particular pleasures. Autumn walks among the colorful trees, cozy winter evenings by the fire, the blazing safflower fields of spring, long summer evenings on the terrace, listening to the swifts playing among the roof tops.

The castle of Montmirail is open to visit during summer months. The church is active and offers two services on Sundays. The village also has a restaurant, bakery, grocery store, pharmacy, post office, two banks, a bar and even a hair dresser.

We are well located as a stop-over for people traveling from the north towards the south of France, or from the east towards the Brittany coast. We are a very short escape from Paris for a quiet weekend. And our area, one of the less known in France, is well worth an extended stay. If you're looking for a relaxing, authentic French country experience, away from the crowds, you'll find it in Montmirail.

If you just want to stay put, we have lots of games and a lending library, as well as an extended network of trails just outside the door. You can play badminton or croquet in our garden. In addition, we offer a range of guided activities and special events to enrich your visit. Our area boasts some of the most pleasant green tourist sites in France. There are many back roads to poke around, horseback riding and other sports activities are readily available. La Ferté-Bernard has an exquisite church with one of the best examples of carved stone lettering in the world, beautiful half-timbered buildings and wooden carvings from the Middle Ages, as well as an intricate system of canals, which can be explored in rented boats. You won't have to fight the crowds, there are seldom huge busloads of tourists and the weather is generally mild.
