Suprisingly spacious detached village house in Normandy with 3/4 bedrooms and enclosed garden.  Ideal “lock and leave” holiday home or for full time occupation.

This substantial detached house offers spacious family accommodation and could be used as house and annexe or gîte without too many alterations.  It is in the heart of a small village with bakery and restaurant within an easy walking distance.  The property benefits from wood framed double glazed windows and an efficient eco-friendly heating system.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is in the centre of a village with bakery and bar/restaurant.  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.
