3 bedroom cottage with magnificent gardens and river on the boundary

The property has been renovated and upgraded by the present owners who have created a stunning environment around the property.  There is a recently fitted bathroom, a dormer window has been added to the rear elevation within the last 10 years.  It has been run as a successful 1 room Bed & Breakfast in the past at 53€ per night.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 2.6 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
