Message From The Seller

We have owned this wonderful house for nearly 20 years. Regrettably now is the time to pass it on to someone who will love it as much as we and our family and friends have done.


Detached country house with spacious accommodation and character features

This super family house offers versatile accommodation with two staircases giving a separation of bedrooms and offering the possibility of running a B&B, altering the accommodation to incorporate a self-contained gîte or for extended family.  There are plenty of character features including a fabulous stone fireplace with exposed stone wall and full height lounge with mezzanine library/seating area on half of the first floor area.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is between  Le Teilleul (6 km) – it has 2 banks, 2 boulangeries, butcher, supermarket, restaurants and bars, and a good, although small, weekly market and Notre-Dame-du-Touchet with bar/restaurant, hairdresser, bakery and grocery store.

The property is situated on the boundary of the ‘Parc Naturel Regional Normandie Maine’, amidst rolling countryside in a small rural hamlet.   Nearest main facilities are to be found in the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 10 minutes drive).  This delightful town also offers a selection of Bars and Restaurants to suit all tastes and a wide range of shops together with a large supermarket. The medieval town of Domfront, with is narrow streets and ruined castle, also offers the same facilities within a 20 minute drive.  Also St. Hilaire du Harcouët is only 12kms with a big weekly market.  The UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel is 46 km away.  The Voie Verte which forms part of the Paris to Mont St Michel cycleway and provides links into a further network of routes throughout Manche, into Calvados and Bretagne is nearby.  Located at the southern tip of Manche the property is served by the ports of Caen Ouistreham ( 1 hr 15 min.), Cherbourg (2 hr 15 min.), Le Havre (2 hrs) and Calais (5 hrs). The closest airports are at Rennes (apprx.1hr 15 min.) and Dinard (1 hr 15 min.).
