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 (and adults) entertained.

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.

TOP price-performance

By Guido H. on 03-Sep-2023

The house is on the edge of the small town of Buais. This includes a very large, well-kept garden area, which is also ideal for small children. The interior was also clean and tidy, and there was nothing missing in terms of furnishings. There is a bakery in town, which can also be reached on foot. About ten minutes away by car is the small town of Saint Hilaire with Aldi, Lidl and a large supermarket. The tourist information there will be happy to help you. The very large market, which takes place every Wednesday morning, is highly recommended. Buais is the ideal starting point for hikes or bike tours. It takes about half an hour to drive to Mont Saint Michel and there are also many beautiful beaches. Ged is the perfect host. The contact before booking was always very quick and uncomplicated. The welcome was extremely friendly. Thank you!

The host was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The communication in advance was very uncomplicated and the large garden that was available to us was very nice.
