Beautiful family house with huge potential to expand to gîte/chambre d’hôte/ small holding.  Exceptional grounds.


Delightful family house with superb gardens in Normandy with potential to create a self-contained gîte.

The property has been completely modernised by the present owners in about 2005  and benefits from uPvc windows, a recent kitchen and re-wiring. The flexible accommodation would lend itself to dividing the house into home and gîte or for extended family use. There is a level paddock and access nearby to bridleways.  The outbuildings are well maintained and spacious. The garden at this property is a particular feature with various seating areas and beautiful well-stocked flower and shrub borders.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated between a village with a  bar/shop and bakery and the small town of Saint Pois. 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,  15 minutes from Sourdeval or 2 minutes drive to Saint Pois the nearest town.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and the property is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes drive from the port of Caen and within easy reach of  Cherbourg, Le Havre and Saint-Malo.
