Beautiful gîte complex in quiet rural setting in Normandy – Owner’s accommodation and 2 gîtes in excellent condition throughout.  Ready for next Season’s letting.

The property has been renovated by the present owners to include a 5 bedroom main house with attached 2 bedroom gîte and separate detached renovated bakery with 3 bedrooms, standing in grounds of over 1 1/4 acres at the end of a no through road to ensure perfect peace and quiet!  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the charm and income potential of this property.

The house is situated near a village with a shop and 2 minutes drive from the small town of Saint Pois with every day amenities and school.  It is 15 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 15 minutes drive to Vire. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and it is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg.
