Message From The Seller

“Living here has been a very special time for us … lots of work but so much peace and tranquillity.
We’re on a no-through lane so the only passing traffic is the tractor of Michel, the farmer, once or twice a day – he always gives us a wave or sometimes stops for a little chat (good for practising our French!)   And, of course, we never tire of that view – just lovely whatever the season.
Even though it feels a million miles away from it all, Sourdeval is just on the doorstep for shopping and socialising if you want it”.


Super family house with stunning views in Normandy

This large detached family home has been renovated by the present owners over the last 6 years.  It stands in a quiet rural hamlet with stunning views.  There is room to extend the living accommodation in to the attached utility room/workshop if required and there are a few finishing details for a new owner and the “Jack and Jill” bathroom to fit.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, a few kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
