Message From The Seller

“We have very much enjoyed living in this property for nearly nineteen years and we love the location and the friendly village that we are part of. I wanted a plot that was easy to maintain, yet this edge of village property also overlooks the countryside so we get the benefit of the open land but none of the hard work of maintaining it! We will miss it.”

Detached village house with garden and double garage

The property is ready to move into and benefits from manageable, level garden and is on the edge of village with wonderful views overlooking open countryside. The village has a bar/tabac/shop, hairdresser, petrol pumps, car mechanic, post office, function hall, and schools (Maternelle & Elementaire).  The accommodation is well-presented and offers potential to create a B&B, comfortable family house or holiday home. Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is in a quiet, convenient position near the villages of Bény-Bocage and Monthchamp on the Vire/Aunay sur Odon road in the Calvados district of Normandy. The area largely consists of small villages dotted among rolling hills, pasture and woodland. It is a short drive from the D-Day beaches in the north, Falaise to the south-east and Mont St. Michel to the south-west.  The lovely old town of Bayeux with its famous tapestry is 50 minutes drive away and Omaha beach is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes drive. The nearest beaches are in the direction of Caen (Ouistreham), Deauville or Granville approximately 45 minutes to 1 1/4 hours drive.  To the South and just 10 minutes drive away is the lovely area of Suisse Normande, with it’s gorges, rivers and forests.  The nearest airport and ferry port are near Caen (25 miles).  A mainline train service to Paris and all other amenities can be found at Vire which is a 10 minute drive from the property.
