Renovated country house in a hamlet in Brittany

The house is believed to have been built in the 1770’s and has been renovated by the present owners.  There are many character features including exposed beams and a granite fireplace and the accommodation is spacious.  It stands in a quiet rural hamlet and has a garden and barn which serves for storage and workshop.  Viewing is recommended.

The property  is in Ille-et-Vilaine in the Brittany region of France,  in a quiet location, yet only five minutes from shops (including a supermarket) and restaurants in the village of Louvigné-du-Désert.  The ancient town of Fougères is a 15 minute drive from the house and the Fougères Forest is just a 10 minute drive for forest walks, horse riding, mountain bike tracks and lakeside swimming.  The Brittany American War Cemetery and Memorial is 15 minutes from the property.  The closest airport to the house is at Rennes (64 km) and slightly further afield are Dinard Airport (70 km), Angers Airport (119 km), or St. Brieuc Airport (127 km).  Within an hour’s drive are the towns of Laval, Granville, Villedieu-les-Poêles, the small fishing port of Cancale and Rennes, the capital of Brittany with its medieval streets and half timbered houses.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is within very easy reach (32 km) as are the beaches on the North Brittany coast.  The closest ferry port is at Saint Malo which is about 1 hour away.
