Ideal lock up and leave holiday home in Normandy

This surprisingly spacious semi-detached house is in a quiet rural hamlet and has accommodation over three floors.  The roof was overhauled with new slates about 3 years ago and the flue for the woodburner has been brought up to current regulations.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is located in Orne in the Normandy region of France. The closest airport  is Deauville Airport (99 km) also within reach are Dinard Airport (100 km), Rennes Airport (101 km), or Angers Airport (128 km). The UNESCO Heritage site of Mont St Michel is 58 km away and the coast at Granville is about 1 1/2 hours’ drive.  It is about 25 minutes to a 9 hole golf course Golf De Bagnoles – Route de Domfront at Bagnoles sur Orne.  The ferry ports are within easy reach – 1 hour to Caen Ouistreham, 4 1/2 hours to Calais, 2 1/2 hours to Le Harvre port or Cherbourg. It is about 2 hours 15 mins to Paris by train.  The pretty village of Lonlay l’Abbaye is about 6 km away.  More extensive facilities can be found in the historic town of Domfront, which is a 15 minute drive and the town of Flers with a swimming pool, bowling, restaurants, shops and schools (about 10 minutes drive) or Vire (15 minutes drive).
