Gîte complex in stunning environment with just under 5 acres and 2 ponds

This established (since 2005)  gîte complex is situated in a stunning environment and comprises the main family house which is split level with 2 self contained studios on the lower ground floor, an en-suite bed & breakfast room and a detached chalet.  The renovations were all done between 1992 and 1996 and all that remains of the original house are the 4 walls.  The main house, studios and B&B room benefit from gas fired central heating, and double and triple glazed upvc tilt and turn windows with oak shutters on the ground floor and roller shutters on the first floor.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is near a village with a bar/restaurant.  It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  a few kilometers 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 forty 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.
