Message From The Seller

Our favourite things would be: living in a friendly and authentic French village and having the beautiful town of DOMFRONT just a few minutes away.


Lock and leave Village House in Normandy

The house benefits from partial double glazing and a synthetic slate roof which was done in 2014.  There is one bedroom in the main house but to the rear of the house there is an outbuilding which has been renovated to create a small bedroom on the ground floor with a sleeping platform.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the Orne department (Normandy region) in the north of France at 62 km from Alencon, the department capital.  Local services can be found within easy walking distance at Saint Mars d’Egrenne, with butchers, bakers and general store.  The village is 229 km from Paris (or 2 hours 15 minutes by train) and 324 km from the port at Calais or about 1 hour 30 minutes to the port at Caen Ouistreham.  Local facilities can be found at Domfront (8 km) and Bagnoles de l’Orne at 22 km. The nearest large town is Flers (23km). The coast at Granville is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes away.
