Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

An idyllic vacation in rural Normandy!

La Faverie is a pretty two-bedroomed gîte situated near Mantilly, a charming and traditional village and «La Capitale du Poiré»! The gîte is located in the heart of the countryside, in a small, rural hamlet – the perfect place for a calm and relaxing stay.

Enjoy breakfast on the patio overlooking the spectacular countryside; spend the day exploring the historical delights of the region or lazing on one of the many nearby beaches; then indulge in a relaxing BBQ in the garden, or experience fine French cuisine in one of the area’s many excellent restaurants.

The gîte has everything you’ll need for up to 4 people:

* 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed, double wardrobe, night tables, etc.

* a WC / bathroom (with shower)

* a utility room, with a washing machine and space to store your luggage

* a lounge/diner with a fully-equipped, modern kitchen (oven, fridge-freezer, microwave, crockery, etc.)

* free, unlimited WiFi access

Outside, there’s a spacious patio (with a BBQ and patio dining set provided), and the view over the surrounding countryside is really magnificent – you’re not overlooked at all! There’s also a small, landscaped rockery, a garage and private parking for several cars.

The gîte is single-storey, so it’s ideal for people with limited mobility. There are just two small steps outside leading up to the entrance.

It’s a perfect place to spend your holidays in both summer and winter, and there are lots of things to do in the area! The Normandy coast is famous for its D-Day landing beaches (Omaha, Juno, etc.); you can pay a visit to Domfront with its beautiful, medieval castle; spend the day at Mont St. Michel (60km) browsing through the shops and touring the abbey; or visit Bagnoles de l’Orne (30km) with the thermal spa, casino, castle, beautiful lake and the free, open-air concerts in summer. If you prefer to spend the day closer to home, relaxing in the gîte, it’s incredibly well-equipped… with a BBQ, television, 4 bicycles, jigsaw puzzles, games and books, etc., so you will never be bored!

Fully refurbished in 2013, with even more improvements made during 2014, La Faverie is the ideal place for your stay in the beautiful French countryside, close to the beaches, towns and tourist sites.

We have lived in this beautiful area for almost three decades, so we’re happy to help you with suggestions and ideas for your stay, or any help you may need with the French language. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any information or for a quote… we’re ready to welcome you to our charming little gîte in the heart of rural Normandy!

On en oublierait le béton de la ville !

  • 4 of 5

Propriétaires charmants et très à l'écoute de notre confort.

Des petites attentions nous attendaient à l'arrivée. Notre fille avait elle aussi un petit cadeau.

La vue est vraiment campagnarde depuis la terrasse, exit le béton et la civilisation, calme assuré.

Merci à Joan et Malcolm.

Joan Thanks for your attention. The house is well located and the owners are very attentive. It has everything you need and is close to magnificent places to visit. Highly recommended. Joan must improve internet connection. I think we will return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family, and thank you too for leaving the house in a lovely clean condition. I'm sorry that the Internet connection was not too good for you. Unfortunately in the countryside it's not always possible to have the very fast connection that you can get in a city. We really hope to see you again at La Faverie and thank you again for choosing us this year.
