18 Rooms in the old farmhouse
Just outside Villedieu les Poêles, part of the St. Cecile district but in the midst of greenery, the Hotel Manoir de l'Archerie with 18 rooms offers a special and peaceful atmosphere - with all the advantages and disadvantages.
This small hotel is situated in an old mansion with a very nice courtyard and a beautiful garden: the rooms are located in the Hautphaus, the side house and the old chapel.
There is also a shop with organic products and biocosmetics eg from donkey milk. At all, the owners attach particular importance to ecological and regional products.
Diese stammen von örtlichen Bauern. Salat, Kartoffeln und Tomaten kommen aus dem eigenen Garten und auch sonst ist das Essen ausgesprochen Empfehlenswert.
Work in the garden
Due to its secluded location, the hotel is particularly suitable for quiet work and strategy meetings. Everywhere, also in the rooms and garden, is very good WLAN available.
In contrast to the Hotel Le Fruitier, the Manoir is not a seminar-green hotel, however, it is also suitable for groups with certain restrictions:
As a seminar room one of the two dining rooms can be used for a maximum of 15 people, there is even an atmopshärisch beautiful fireplace. About three to four meetings take place every year.
A screen is available, a beamer can be rented in the city or, as well as other technical equipment, must be brought by the group itself.
However, it is important to note that the hotel has been awarded a very quiet house: this means that it is closed in the summer between 23.30 and 7 in the morning and in the winter even an hour earlier.
From this regulation the owners also for groups do not make an exception, so if you are planning evening activities, you should look for another hotel.
UNESCO world cultural heritage
In fact, the region, despite its seclusion, has a lot to offer: it is only about half an hour from the coast, one hour from the famous Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel: The church built since the 10 century UNESCO world cultural heritage.
In fact, one of the visitors' turmoils can quickly become too much, especially in the summer months, but the grandiose crypts and halls of the Monuments, built over several centuries, are compensated for. Not for nothing, it was one of the most extensive, difficult and expensive construction projects of the entire Middle Ages.
On the way to Mont St.Michel you can visit the historic harbor town of Granville, as well as a visit to the Ecomusee de la Baie Du Mont-Saint-Michel in Vans, where groups can also book numerous activities.
One of them is, for example, a walk through the Bay of Mont St.Michel at low tide, another a fishing trip on which you can collect mussels, oysters and shellfish, and finally you can learn the salt production under the guidance of a guide.
Excursions and arrival
Recommendable and around a lot cheaper than the Mont St. Michel itself are also the surrounding restaurants. Even the beaches of the bay, which in contrast to Mont St.Michel are almost menless in July, are worth a visit, but they offer a magnificent view of the building. Villedieu les Poeles is finally considered a city of copper and dates back to 12. Century. It is also home to the last bell foundry in France.
The journey is quite simple: with Air France it goes to Paris or Rennes, from there by train to Villedieu les Poeles.
