Message From The Seller

Just a few things you may want to include :
1. If you walk 30 seconds from the back of the house you will find yourself in undulating countryside with nice walks.
2. Opposite to the back garden is the village tennis court which the house has been given permission for use of guests.
3. The house has a interesting history. 3 French resistance fighters were killed  while supporting Pattons army from the top windows. The German Army were retreating along Rue de Rennes. There is a plaque on the front of the house which commemorates this.

Property Video Tour

Beautiful character stone property with 7 ensuite bedrooms – ideal B&B.

This recently renovated property has been run as a B&B by the current owners – it is in an ideal position close to the Baie of Mont Saint Michel and the beach.  It now offers an excellent, ready to run, B&B property or would be suitable for use as a gîte.  Currently the double room rate starts at 85€ per night.  It benefits from double glazed windows with wood frames, new kitchen and bathrooms and re-decoration.  The enclosed courtyard and garden offer lovely outside space with different seating areas, etc. The old stone house is suitable for renovation, subject to planning.  It is ideal for someone wishing to start a business in Normandy immediately after arriving.  Viewing is highly recommended.

This property is situated in the south of the department of Manche in Normandy, 11 km from the UNESCO heritage site of the Baie of Mont Saint Michel. It is surrounded by Normandy countryside yet only a short distance from main road networks and local amenities.  Perfect for visiting Mont Saint-Michel, historic towns and coastal areas. There are several regional airports in the Manche region, most notably the Dinard and Rennes airports, which has links to Paris.  Driving from either of these airports will take about 1 hour to reach St James.  The nearest main arterial road to St James is the A84, which spans between Caen and Rennes.  The ferry ports of Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo are the most convenient for travel to St James, Dieppe offers a good alternative, although Calais being larger may provide cheaper fares.  Driving from Calais to St James is 354km and takes about 4 hours.  Caen to St James is 120km and takes a little over 1 hour.  St Malo to St James is about 60km and will take just under 1 hour.
