About the property


La Mancellière is a beautiful 17th century hamlet in the picturesque Manche region of Lower Normandy, close to the Brittany and Loire borders. The properties have been lovingly restored into 2 comfortable, self-contained gites with private gardens. The gites have lots of original features including a lovely wood-burning fireplace in the Cottage, chestnut floors and exposed oak beams throughout. La Mancellière is surrounded by rolling countryside and has lovely gardens for you to enjoy. We are open all year round for self-catering holidays and short breaks. We can accommodate up to 4 people in the Cottage, 8 people in the Old Dairy or for larger groups of up to 12 people, both properties can be rented for a discounted price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for your hospitality. La Mancelliere is a lovely place, nicely located to explore the surrounding area. Very nice accommodation and very comfy beds! Peace and quiet - just what we needed. Thanks again and maybe, au revoir.

Amazing holiday, lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty setting, so clean and what a joy to be presented with such a lovely place to call home for a week. The owners are welcoming and friendly, but never intrusive. We just loved it here. Very close to some great beaches and places of interest. In the evenings we relaxed and ate Al fresco in the charming gardens.

Highly recommend
