Studio Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Mantilly, Orne, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
A delightful cottage set in 2 acres of natural gardens with duck pond and ducks. Croquet lawn and boules court. Cycles available. Excellent walking and cycling country. Plenty of country bars where a 3 course lunch costs on average 10 euros.
One bedroom plus a mezzanine with three single beds dividable by railed curtains. Extensive range of books.
This is a medieval property converted to be a comfortable holiday stay, with lots of light and space. Not a perfectionists dream but more a romantics nest. It has a very relaxing atmosphere.

Horse riding in woodland countryside nearby. Many fishing lakes and golf courses nearby. 2 open air swimming pools and 2 indoor ones. Rock climbing 10 minutes away. Both the Normandy landing beaches and Mont St Michel Bay are an hour - 2 hours away.
Acrobranch, canoeing paintballing and swingolf about 2...

Sorry about the pool but we only put it out on request and you did not ask us whilst visiting! Not all parants want a poll for safety reason. Best wishes Ann Davis
