Delightful thatched house with stunning views in Normandy

The property comprises a lovely detached thatched house with a blend of modern and traditional accommodation offering light, versatile living space over 2 floors.  The thatched roof was replaced with water reed about 20 years ago and is regularly maintained.  It stands in a quiet position with one neighbour. 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 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 thirty 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.
