This fantastic house sits on the edge of a small, peaceful village in the Manche (50) area of Normandy within a short stroll to the local shop/bar.  It would be ideal as a B & B or it would divide into 3 separate units to provide owners’ accommodation and 2 gîtes or a large family house. The house is in immaculate condition throughout and has light, spacious rooms with glorious views of the surrounding countryside.  The house has been extensively restored and benefits from double glazing, insulation, rewiring and  new plumbing whilst retaining the character of the property.

The farmhouse is situated on the Manche/Calvados border and is only 1 hour away from the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham and 3 hours from Paris.  Calais is about 4 hours away.  The beach at Granville is approximately 30 minutes drive, as is the UNESCO heritage site of the Mont Saint Michel.  The nearest main town is Villedieu-les-Poêles about 10 minutes drive away and Vire is approximately 15 minutes distant.  The property is also well placed to pick up the A84 motorway at Pont-Farcy or Villedieu-les-Poêles.
