10th and 11th century Monastry with nearly 15 acres in a hamlet in Normandy near the forest of Saint-Sever-Calvados and the town of Vire-Normandie.

There are many original features in this beautiful renovated house but one of the must stunning has to be the Hall/Dining Room with stone floor which is reminiscent of a medieval banqueting hall.  The house offers a wealth of exposed stone walls and beams combined with all modern amenities.  There is room to extend into the second floor (one bedroom remains to be finished at the moment).  There is also an attached Studio which could finish being renovated into a one bedroom gîte.  The house stands in a quiet rural hamlet.  For equestrian enthusiasts most of the fields have water and there is good outriding.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated within  10 minutes drive to the market 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.
