Delightful 2 bedroom detached cottage within walking distance of a lake with just under 1/2 acre garden.

The property is built of stone and cob under a slate and synthetic slate roof and is partially double glazed with wooden shutters.  It is in a quiet rural hamlet.

The property is approximately 5 minutes away from a small town with amenities including a bank, supermarkets, restaurants, newsagents, doctor’s surgery, vet’s surgery and a school.  The larger towns of St Hilaire du Harcouët and Avranches (11 km) are within easy reach for weekly markets.  It is situated approximately 30 minutes drive away from the coast, 1 hour from Dinard airport and 1 hour and 15 minutes from the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham.  The nearest mainline train station is at Avranches.  It is perfectly positioned to explore all that Normandy has to offer, from visiting the UNESCO heritage site of  Mont St Michel in the South up to the Normandy beaches and Bayeux to the North.  The house is within walking distance of the Barrage de Vezins where the lake stretches all the way to St. Hilaire du Harcouët.
