House and gîte in idyllic position for sale in Normandy. Ideal home and income in a quiet rural hamlet.
The main house is built of stone under a slate roof and has recently been completely renovated including a new roof. It is ready to move into and the gîte is up and running, having been successfully let for 17 weeks in 2015 for £295 per week. Viewing of this property is highly recommended to appreciate the charm and character. It is in a quiet rural position with gently sloping garden and orchard.
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.
