Message From The Seller

I think the things we love most about our home are a) the absolute, restorative peace of the place, and b) the light in the winter when the trees are bare and the sun streams in through every window. (I could go on but I won’t!)


Pretty detached country house with over 3/4 acre garden in quiet rural hamlet.

The property has been sympathetically renovated by the present owners of the last 20 years and features exposed stone walls and beams and a granite fireplace – the roof was overhauled, the property was re-wired, new bathrooms and kitchen were fitted and double glazed windows were installed.    There is a ground floor bedroom and and shower room which makes living on one floor a possibility if required.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The village is located in the north west of France in the department of Manche of the French region Basse-Normandie. There is a popular cafe in the village which is extremely good value.  Close to the property tourist attractions include Mont St Michel (38 km), Coutances Cathedral (61 km), The Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) (72 km). The nearest large town is Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët (50) at 6.39 km which offers a wide range of shops, schools, doctors’ surgeries etc. and a busy market. The closest airport is Rennes Airport (78 km), slightly further afield are Dinard Airport (79 km), Deauville Airport (121 km), or Angers Airport (124 km). The property is 2 hours from the Ferry Port at Cherbourg, about 1 1/2 from Ouistreham and 1 1/4 from St Malo.
