Message From The Seller

Built to our specifications by local French architect and workmen, it is our dream open plan home. We love sitting under the trees in the dappled sunlight when eating lunch, and watching the sunset from the garden. Our recent addition of the verandah allowed us to appreciate the views for longer hours and is a wonderful space for entertaining in all seasons. We love sitting in front of our ‘living fire’ on chilly evenings. We have made many French friends in this Commune and our immediate neighbours are helpful and accommodating.

Property Video Tour

Beautifully renovated detached village house with garden and garage within walking distance of schools and with a bus service to Vire (7 km) with all amenities including mainline train station.

The property is detached and situated in the village centre.    It has been completely renovated by the present owners under the supervision of an Architect and with French Artisans since 1996 and offers comfortable split level living accommodation.  More recently the Conservatory has been added and creates an additional light and airy living space.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is about an hour and a half from the ferry port and ideally located for many of the tourist sites that Normandie offers –  The D-day beaches, Bayeux, Mont St Michel, ViIledieu-les-Pôeles, etc. More locally, the area provides two large nearby supermarkets, a newly updated school, a Michelin Guide restaurant within 5 minutes drive, trout fishing, a golf course. It is close to Vire, a thriving town with a Friday market (7 km) and Vassy in the Calvados department (Normandy region) in the north of France  43 km from Caen, the department capital. Vassy is 221 km from Paris (mainline train station at Vire – 15 minutes away) and 295 km from the port at Calais.  Rennes – Saint-Jacques Airport (RNS) is approximately two hours and 10 minute’s drive from Vassy. Flights arrive here from Southampton year round as well as seasonally from Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Exeter and Manchester.   Many activities are available for those staying in Vassy with lots of glorious countryside to be explored making this ideal for hiking, horse riding and cycling. There are public tennis courts nearby in the area as well as several golf courses including one a Clécy, which is 20 kilometers from Vassy and the 18 hole Golf de Vire.
