Pretty riverside cottage near Medieval Town

The property would benefit from further modernisation and finishing.  It is situated at the end of a no through road in a small hamlet and would have been part of a Mill complex in the past.  It would be an ideal holiday home.   Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the north west of France,  in the department of Orne in Normandy.  The property is in a quiet residential position on the outskirts of the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities.  Also nearby, you will find Lassay -les-Chateaux (13km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 22km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.  La-Ferté-Macé (15km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The larger town of Mayenne is 27 km away.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 80km and the D-Day landing beaches are 112km.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (30km) with the TGV at Laval (52km) and airport and ferry are at Caen Carpiquet (76km).  Rennes airport is also within easy reach (98km).
