Right on the edge of town but rural and peaceful and we have a lovely patio with fabulous views over the valley

Property Video Tour

House and gîte on the outskirts of a bustling market town in Normandy.  Ideal home and income.

The property has been divided into owners’ accommodation and a gîte for friends and family to use.  Both have accommodation arranged over 3 floors.  There is a pretty garden and two separate driveways.  Water and electricity are separately metered which would make a “buy-to-let” purchase viable. The patio and garage have brand new beams and floors and this continues over the mower store, store and garden store.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 1 km from Sourdeval, the nearest town. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The property is within a 5 minute drive of a well known local restaurant. 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.  The nearest Airport is at Dinard (70 miles), Ferry Ports at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
