Summer is here!

Summer is now with us, as the hot sun beats down on the French countryside nearby. We are very excited that we have now been able to provide a larger property ‘Husson Gite’ to help those who have visited the Mantilly Cottage website, but had been after a slightly larger property. Husson Gite will also provide extra availability for people looking to get away in the ‘high season’ months that can often be booked up during School Holidays etc.
