The property has been completely renovated and extended over the last 9 years including new windows and doors, a new woodburner and a new regulation all water septic tank.  The house has also been extended to offer versatile family accommodation.  There are several outbuildings, one of which is suitable to over-winter a camping car.

Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  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.
