Message From The Seller

“I like the location of the house – very private!  I only see the neighbours rarely on leaving the house and never from the front, so private but not isolated.”

Detached country house with room to extend in quiet rural Normandy hamlet

The property currently has two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom but the kitchen leads to the Inner Hall and Utility Room which are part renovated to be used as additional living space.  There is also a loft over.  There is a small paddock with this property and a garden to the the south side.  The roof is tiled at the front (south) and part tiled and part corrugated iron on the rear.  Viewing is recommended.

The property is situated between two quiet villages, whilst Vire and Villedieu-Les-Poeles are both pleasant historic towns approx 10-15 minutes drive away.  Granville, with its excellent beaches, sailing marina and fishing port is only a 30-minute drive west from St Sever, with Mont St. Michel, Bayeux with its famous tapestry, Avranches, Coutances, St Lo and the D-Day landing sites in easy reach.  The village of St Sever has a good variety of local shops including a pharmacy, dry-cleaners as well as all the essential food and delicacies for which the region is famous. Saint Sever is a farming/market town with a substantial range of local shops and facilities.  The property is easily accessible with airports  at  Caen Carpiquet (1 hour), Rennes, Dinard and Deauville offering direct flights from the UK.  The Channel Ports of Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and both Le Havre and Cherbourg (90 minutes)are easily accessible  and it will take 4 hours to drive to the Channel tunnel at Calais.  There is a mainline train station at Vire which is on the Paris/Granville line and connects with Paris in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
