Mayenne is a peaceful rural department sandwiched between Normandy and the Loire valley. In the north Mayenne, like the department, is named after the river which meanders through the countryside. At 'Softies' we consider the region one of France’s hidden gems. It is a wonderfully understated region full of old-world charm. With riverside towpaths galore, Mayenne is perfect territory for people looking for sublimely easy traffic free cycling.
