Superb Château with lake, outbuildings and 27 hectares
The Château was built in the 15th Century but in part is believed to date further back to the barons of Coulonces (the barony was established in 1336 and its seat was the Château), several of whom were governors of Vire and one of whom, Jean de La Haye, distinguished himself at the battle of Gravelle during the Hundred Years War. There are beautiful original features in the basement, with its vaulted ceilings, the mouldings over the entrance doors, the balconies and seating areas overlooking the lake. The Château is surrounding by its own land and is in a truly magical setting. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is situated about 5 kms from the town of Vire with all amenities including mainline train station to Granville and Paris (approx. 2 hours 40 mins), Supermarkets, Schools, Bowling, 18 hole Golf Course, Lake, Swimming Pool, Skate Park, Gym, Riding School, Hospitals, shops, etc. Market day is Friday. The beach at Granville is approximately 50 minutes away. The ferry ports of Caen (1 hour), Cherbourg, St Malo and Le Havre are within easy driving distances and Calais for the Tunnel is about 4 hours away. The nearest airports are at Deauville (Cityjet), Rennes (Flybe) and Dinard.
