Message From The Seller

“Sit at the garden table, pour yourself a glass of cold chardonnay and admire the endless view over the valley, as you listen to the birds singing and watch deer playing on your own slice of rural French countryside. Enjoyed by a young family for more than 15 years, this house has been loved and cared for and will be hugely missed as we move on to our next project.”

5 bedroom stone house with nearly 7 acres

The property is in a quiet rural hamlet.  It is well presented throughout and offers family accommodation with plenty of land surrounding it, part of which is woodland.  The gas fired central heating can be operated remotely.  The windows and doors were all replaced in 2018 and a new log burner was fitted in 2020.  The land is used as a garden and cut 4 times a year but it could be divided into paddocks.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively medieval market town of Villedieu les Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights.   The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The nearest  village has a bar/restaurant and small store for essentials and amenities at Saint Pois or Saint Sever Calvados are slightly further away.  The closest town, being some 10 minute drive away, is Brécey.  Here you will find the local supermarket – Super U which also offers Petrol/Diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries & banks schools and doctors’ surgery.  It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day landing beaches.  The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
