Message From The Seller

This property has the most amazing views across Valle De La See and has lovely friendly neighbours.
There is a mobile bread van that arrives every morning selling bread and cakes and at the bottom of the hill is an award winning restaurant in an old mill.
During our time at these properties we experienced incredibly high demand for our gite in both Summer months and out of season.
We advertised out of season for bikers as the roads in Normandy are perfect for motorbikes.
We offered the cottage as a B&B basis rather than as a Gite with both breakfasts and home cooked meals which suited those that would be out all day.
It’s definitely worth a visit!!

Detached family house with gîte in Normandy in need of some TLC to return it to it’s former glory!

The property comprises a detached stone house with 3 bedrooms including the master suite on the second floor and a semi-detached (to a neighbouring property) 3 bedroom gîte.  Both properties enjoy superb views.  They are situated on the outskirts of a small village at the end of a no through road and have over half an acre of gardens. There is a superb view from both houses.  The main house is predominantly double glazed with pvc windows and shutters.  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.
