Out and about in the village


Fontaine-Daniel is a friendly village with a tranquil atmosphere. 

 

It has a wonderful organic co-operative épicerie (see photo above!) which has a bar, library and bookshop, food shop and bistro. You will regularly find music and cultural events there. Fontaine-Daniel also has a cozy cafe in the friendly village bakery which regularly holds art exhibitions. Take coffee in its secret garden around the back, or enjoy a galette in the friendly creperie or indulge yourself at the excellent restaurant.

 

After you can relax with a wander around through the allotments, see the cabanas or walk around the lake and see the chapel.

 

Alternatively, if you wish to visit the convent of Bois-Salaire which nestles in the woods within walking distance of the village, (whose nuns makes beautiful candles and tissanes), it can be visited by appointment.

 

No trip here is complete without a visit to the Toiles-de-Mayenne shop to touch the beautiful fabric which is made right here in Fontaine-Daniel.
