Esprit du Bocage is a very special place, situated in the small hamlet "Launay" close to the village of St. Clément-Rancoudray, with two charming and comfortable self-catering holiday cottages (gîtes in French). Both cottages are independent, in a quiet rural setting, and each has its own spacious garden.

The holiday homes are situated on adjacent plots, each with private access and a large parking space. At approximately 7 km you will find two small towns with all amenities. Mortain is famous for its waterfall, that is the largest in Western France, and also has an outdoor swimming pool with a spectacular view.  Sourdeval has a lovely market every Tuesday, with a traditional livestock market.

This charming romantic holiday cottage is suitable for 2-4 people.

Prices from 490 euro per week.


Gîte Le Cerisier

This charming vintage holiday cottage is suitable for 2-6 people.

Prices from 550 euro per week.


Both holiday homes have been renovated with natural materials, thereby retaining the authentic character of the original farmhouses. The cottages are well equipped and comfortable and both have wood burning stoves; both romantic and comfortable for chilly evenings and the cosy autumn and winter season.

The interior decoration of both cottages is full of personality and an inviting mix of old and new, combining rustic charm with vintage and brocante. The warm atmosphere makes you feel instantly at home.

Both houses are now equipped with Wifi. We had to think long and hard about this, as many guess love to completely relax and disconnect from work and  social media. Of course we can always turn of the Wifi on request...
