Property Video Tour

We fell in love with this property nearly 20 years and have spent all our holidays/free time renovating it to the highest standard, but it still has loads of potential to explore. We have always felt safe and welcomed, by the house and the community, and it has been very hard to make the decision to sell.
There are plenty of walks and cycle rides to enjoy, with a trip to the Abbey ruins ‘a must’. Even though there is no longer a shop/bar in the village, we recommend La Verte Campagne in St Hilaire for fabulous food and fantastic value.
We hope that whoever is fortunate enough to buy our house will love it as much as we do!

Renovated detached house with old house and barn attached and an enclosed garden

The house has been renovated by the present owners over the last 20 years and offers comfortable family accommodation, with exposed stone walls, beams and a granite fireplace, with the potential to create further living space or a gîte if required.  There is a pretty, manageable sized garden.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property  is located in Manche in the Normandy region of France. The closest airport  is Rennes Airport (71 km) also within reach are Dinard Airport (76 km), Angers Airport (119 km), or Deauville Airport (129 km).  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 36km away from the property and the Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) 64km away.   The property is situated about 7 kms from the town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët  which has one of the biggest markets in the area on a Wednesday morning which takes over most of the town centre. The town has all amenities including some great restaurants, bars, and cafes. It also has a park with two adjoining lakes and a childrens’ playground. There is an indoor pool with a spa and a water slide. Crazy golf is available with clubs and balls for hire from a nearby bar. Fishing and horse-riding are within easy reach.  The town of Mortain 20 minutes away offers a great outdoor pool, stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls.  It is 3 minutes away  from the Normandy/Brittany border and is set in the countryside.  It is within easy access of the main ferry ports, Cherbourg, Ouistreham (Caen), and St Malo (at most 1.5 hours drive) and Le Havre (about 2.5 hours).  The nearest mainline train station is at Vire or Avranches (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.
