House with attached gîte to renovate with views over Medieval castle and large garden

The house was built in the shadow of the castle of King Henry II and Queen Eleanor of Acquitaine.  It requires complete renovation, more especially to the small attached gîte to the right of the main house which has not been lived in for a considerable length of time.  It would be an ideal holiday or permanent home. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential of this property.

The property is situated in the north west of France,  in the department of Orne in Normandy. The property is in a quiet residential position on the outskirts of the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities.  Also nearby, you will find Lassay-les-Chateaux (13km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 22km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.  La-Ferté-Macé (15km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The larger town of Mayenne is 27 km away.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 80km and the D-Day landing beaches are 112km.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (30km) with the TGV at Laval (52km)  and the ferry is at Caen Carpiquet (76km).
