Pretty barn conversion with gîte and separate bungalow in rural hamlet.

This house is a beautifully presented barn conversion which has been renovated over the last 9 years by the present owners.  It comprises a three bedroom house with an attached one-bedroom gîte which can be accessed via the main house or independently.  There is a separate detached bungalow which is used for storage, which will require some modernisation.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is in Calvados in the Normandy region of France. Local facilities can be found at the small town of Saint Pois (5 minutes’ drive). It is 15 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. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive and the UNESCO Heritage Site of Mont Saint Michel is about 56 km.
