Detached Townhouse with enclosed garden and outbuildings

The property is situated in the centre of the small town of Sourdeval, in the Manche department and Normandy region. This vibrant community is situated mid-way between the major cities of Caen and Rennes, and 13km from the larger town of Vire-Calvados. Sourdeval is just over an hour from the car ferry port at Caen-Ouistreham and trains from Vire will arrive in Paris in 2.5 hours.

Popular places to visit nearby include Domfront 25 km , Mortain 11km with Mont Saint Michel 57km and the popular coastal resort of Granville being 60km away. Sourdeval has been ‘three flower’rated by Le Conseil National des Villes et Villages Fleuris (The National Council of Cities and Villages in Bloom), based on the welcome and care afforded to residents and tourists, and the standard of its public areas. The town has new young peoples multi-sports and childrens play areas, along with a camp site and a newly installed overnight motorhome parking area. Each year the technical services department of the commune pay particular attention to the magnificent flower and landscape displays throughout the town.

Sourdeval has a wide range of shops and amenities such as schools, banks, dentist, doctor, post office, garages, two supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, a cinema and several excellent patisseries with a lively, weekly, Tuesday morning market, held near the historic church, in and around the central town square. Many of these amenities are within easy walking distance from the house.
