Beautiful Studio Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This lovely holiday cottage, dating from the beginning of the 18th Century, has been restored to a high standard and will provide a cosy and tranquil base for your holiday. Situated just outside the charming village of Mantilly, about 9 km from Domfront, 'The Studio House' is within easy reach of Cherbourg, the Normandy landing beaches especially Utah and Omaha, and ferries to the Channel Islands. Mont St Michel is a 1 hour drive away, and Bayeux, to the North, is about an hour and a half. It is in an excellent position to serve as a base for trips to Brittany or the Loire Valley.

The studio is in the grounds of a Napoleonic Manor House, previously owned by a famous historian and now owned and lived in by a sculptor.

The port of Caen is only an hour and a half away and Dinard airport, which has daily flights to the UK, is a similar distance.

The area where the cottage is located is traditional Normandy and extremely rural, quiet and peaceful. It's a safe environment for children, and the lane, which passes the cottage, serves only five other houses.
