To me it is a magical escape from the rat race but still within reach of the UK and nearby towns.

Detached stone house with small gîte and over 3.5 acres in Normandy

This detached house has been renovated and enjoys superb views over the surrounding countryside.  It stands on the edge of a quiet rural hamlet in its grounds which extend to over 2.5 acres.  The property has been completely renovated from a barn in the last 6 years including re-wiring, a new septic tank, new roof, new hardwood framed double glazed windows, new floors, etc. The property is hard-wired for electric heating and there is also all the pipework in place for underfloor central heating on the ground floor – this could be run of a woodburner with back boiler.  There is the additional benefit of a small guest cottage or gîte (former bread oven built on a stone basewith timber clad walls) which requires some modernising and part of the roof to be overhauled or replaced.   Viewing is highly recommended.

St Martin De Landelles is in the Manche area of Normandy. The closest airport  to St Martin De Landelles is  Dinard Airport (66 km) and Rennes Airport (67 km).  Around St Martin De Landelles attractions such as as  Mont St Michel (26 km) and the Ange Michel Leisure and Water Park, and the river at Vézins are about 1km away.    The town of Saint Martin de Landelles is about 3kms from the house and has facilities including a bakery, post office, supermarket, butchers, school, newsagents, hairdresser, petrol station and a garden centre, 2 bars and a restaurant.  The nearest main town is Saint Hilaire du Harcouët, which is just over 1 hour from Saint Malo and the ferry port, with one of the biggest markets in the area on a Wednesday morning which takes over most of the town centre. The town has all amenities including some great restaurants, bars, and cafes. It also has a park with two adjoining lakes and a childrens’ playground. There is an indoor pool with a spa and a water slide. Crazy golf is available with clubs and balls for hire from a nearby bar. The town of Mortain 20 minutes away offers a great outdoor pool, stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls.  It is 3 minutes away  from the Normandy/Brittany border and is set in the countryside.  It is within easy access of the main ferry ports, Cherbourg, Ouistreham (Caen), and St Malo (at most 1.5 hours drive) and Le Havre (about 2.5 hours).  The nearest mainline train station is at Vire (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.
