Website Maintenance

Well what a busy week we have had at Mantilly Cottage. We headed over to the Cottage last weekend to enjoy the Bank Holiday and make sure everything was perfect for our next guests. While in France, we were contacted by the web designer to say the new website had been very busy, with lots of people viewing what we have to offer.

The new website must be good, as it had also attracted a so called ‘hacker’. As a result, they had taken down the Mantilly website for a few hours. “Not to worry” said the web designer. The site was back up and running in a very short time, and now with some beefed up security, hopefully  the same person will not return.

If you do love the website, please feel free to send us an email to pass on your comments. 😉


Is it value for money to holiday in France? Yes!!

Fantastic news if you are planning to book a gite in Normandy, France!! It is actually at this moment substantially cheaper for you to do so, owing to the pound has reached its greatest price against the euro in 36 months, or since July 2012, at 1.2867.


This simply means that when you exchange your current pounds sterling to visit France, you are going to get more euros. As an example, if you exchange £1,250 to spend a fortnight in our holiday cottage in Mantilly, you’ll now get +€180 over and above a year and a half ago, at the time the (£) pound was at merely 1.1371.


Which means that’s +€180 extra in your wallet, at absolutely no additional cost to you! With that money, you may choose to lengthen your holiday break in Orne, Basse-Normandie an extra day or two, or take advantage of some exquisite French cuisine, buy some (a lot!) of the lovely local french pear cider or simply just pocket the saving.


Sterling seems to have risen, due to the fact the United Kingdom overall economy is doing so significantly better than the Eurozone’s. That is definitely raising the strength of the pound!


Considering this positive news, it really is an excellent time for you to rent a cottage or a gite in France, because the strong british pound provides you with much more spending money.
