Message From The Seller

We love the peaceful but not isolated location.  Super location near forest tracks and quiet lanes but close to amenities in a pleasant small town.

Spacious country house next to a Forest in Normandy

This spacious property has 4 reception rooms (one of which could be used as a bedroom) and potential to create a self-contained annexe in the garden room with bedroom over, if required.  It is on the border of the National Park and offers plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, etc. on the doorstep.  The gardens are enclosed by mature hedging and are laid to lawn with useful outbuildings, including a cat run and bedroom.  Viewing is highly recommended.

This  property is ideally situated within a 10 minute drive  of two village centres with amenities including shops, restaurant and bar, supermarket and school, but in a quiet position.  It is about 1 1/4 hours drive from the ferry port at Caen and 15 minutes from Vire.  The nearest beach is at Granville which is about 50 minutes drive to the west and Mont St Michel, Bayeux and the landing beaches are within easy driving distance.  It is adjacent to the  forest of Saint-Sever and is about a 10 minute drive to Lac de la Dathée and an 18 hole golf course.
