Characterful cottage with super views and nearly an acre of garden

This lovely property is in an elevated position and offers attractive accommodation.  The property offers a ground floor bedroom and shower room and could be used as a bungalow although there are a couple of steps down from the kitchen to the lounge area and the bedroom has one step.  The bedroom has a toilet and hand basin and plumbing is in place to install a bath.  The garden around the property is pretty and offers different seating areas and outside storage.  The remaining garden is on a higher level.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 5 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The property is within a 2 minute walk of a well known local restaurant. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.  The nearest Ferry Ports are at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
