Delightful house and gîte with nearly an acre garden in Brittany

The farmhouse is believed to be over 300 years old and stands in a quiet rural hamlet with 2 other houses.  It benefits from double glazed windows, exposed stone walls and beams and is immaculately presented.   The garden and seating areas are a particularly attractive feature of the house and gîte and there are open views over the surrounding countryside. The gîte will be sold fully furnished with website and booking platforms.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this property and its surroundings.

The property is situated in Ille-et-Vilaine department near the Brittany/Normandy border.  It is in a quiet rural hamlet near Louvigné-du-Desert (8km) and Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët (12km).  The ferry ports of Caen Ouistreham and Saint Malo are within a one and a half hour drive.
