The Cottage - Manche - Sleeps 4

Beautiful 17th century cottage in a lovely quiet countryside location 

The Cottage in Manche, a gite in Normandy

2 Bedroom Cottage in Normandy in a peaceful location, close to a pretty village

La Mancellière is a beautiful 17th century hamlet in the picturesque Manche region of Lower Normandy, close to the Brittany and Loire borders. The Cottage has been lovingly restored into a comfortable, self-contained gite with private gardens. The property can accommodate up to 4 people, over two levels, in two beautiful bedrooms, each full of character and charm. There is a large master bedroom with a king-size bed and a lovely twin room with two single beds. There is also a shower room on the first floor. All rooms are made up with comfortable, high quality cotton bedding and have central heating and alcove windows with fantastic views across the gardens to the farmland beyond.

The stone fireplace is the heart and soul of the Cottage and putting your feet up by the wood-burning fire is the perfect way to end a long day sightseeing. The kitchen and utility room is fully fitted and well-appointed with a range cooker, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining area has a table for 4 people and the cosy lounge area has big squashy sofas, perfect for relaxing by the fire.

The gite has lots of original features including chestnut floors and exposed oak beams throughout. La Mancellière is surrounded by rolling countryside and has lovely gardens for you to enjoy. There is TV and DVD player with a well-stocked DVD library. WiFi internet is available free of charge.

The large, secluded, child-friendly grounds are well away from any roads. From time to time there are also sheep and chickens (in fenced off areas). We also have BBQs and outdoor games to keep kids entertained such as boules, frisbees, bats and balls, footballs etc.

Five minutes from the village where you can buy fresh bread and pastries from the excellent bakery. There is also a bar/brasserie/tabac, hair salon and a beautiful church.

No trip would be complete without a visit to the world famous and magnificent Mont-St-Michel, which is around 30 minutes from the property. The ancient rock formation, with abbey and fascinating architecture along with shops, bars and restaurants. The views are awesome and a visit is truly worthwhile.

There is an activity park with waterslides and a host of other great attractions just 20 minutes away. A swimming complex with slides and jacuzzi in St Hilaire 10 minutes away. Beaches, waterfalls, karting, aquariums and a reptilarium all nearby.

The beautiful towns of St Malo, Dinard, and Dinan in Brittany and Granville in Normandy make great days out, boasting beautiful beaches, walled towns and are steeped in history. There are also wonderful shops, marinas, and plenty to do for the kids.
