Message From The Seller

“If you like the outdoor active lifestyle you will love its location at the end of a quiet no through road with a track leading directly into the Forest D’Andaine which covers an area over 14,000 hectares. There are extensive hiking/dog walking, running and mountain bike/cycling trails to explore where you will find an abundance of wildlife including deer, wild boar, red squirrels, buzzards etc. Nearby lakes and rivers offer the opportunity for kayaking and wild swimming. The large rear garden is peaceful and private with views over the adjoining field. The nearest shops are found at Champsecret and La Ferriére aux Etangs. A larger range of shops and supermarkets etc can be found in La Ferté Macé, Flers and Domfront.”

Attractive cottage in a rural hamlet with garden and barn

This pretty cottage has a garden of over quarter of an acre and benefits from having a new roof in 2019. It is positioned in a quiet rural hamlet and has access to the Forest D’Andaine.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is found in Orne in the Normandy region of France.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is about 70 km away.  Local shopping facilities are in the village including a bakery, butchers, hairdressers, bar/tabac, post office and an infant school.  There is a school bus which stops near the house and goes to Flers and Domfront.  The house is in a lovely village, between Domfront and Bagnoles De L’Orne. It is located on the edge of La Foret D’Andaines.  More extensive facilities can be found in the medieval town of Domfront (7 km) and in the tourist town of Bagnoles de l’Orne (12 km).  It is 52 km from the department capital, Alençon.  The nearest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham which is about 1 hour’s drive.
