This detached stone house is built in a traditional French style over a basement. The accommodation has been renovated, but there is further potential to extend into the adjoining barn if required (and subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).  One of the main benefits of this property is the land that comes with it which extends to over 2 1/2 acres and has a small stream running through it.  The house itself has oil fired central heating and a balcony leading out from the living room.

 The house is situated near a village with a  bar/shop and bakery.  10 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 15 minutes drive to Vire.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest.  It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  10 minutes from Sourdeval or Saint Pois the nearest towns.  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.
