Message From The Seller

We love the area with beautiful views and house and garden are surrounded by open fields
The property is in a quiet area and looks like a Haven with a touch of France , very well finished buildings, renovated to a high standard, by local French artisans that’s why we fell in love with it.

Well appointed house and gîte with over half an acre garden and outbuildings

This superb stone Normandy longère has been completely renovated by French Artisans in about 2008 and has a high quality finish.  It has spacious family accommodation in the main house and an attached two bedroom gîte, both offering all the comforts of modern day living including double glazed windows, oil fired central heating, recent electrics with data wiring for the internet.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is outside in a quiet rural hamlet, outside a village which offers a bakery and hairdresser.  It is close to the Normandy/Brittany border in the Manche area of Normandy. The closest airport is at Rennes (75 km) and slightly further afield are Dinard Airport (82 km), Angers Airport (117 km), or Deauville Airport (125 km).  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 42 km.  The ferry port at Dinard is just over 1 hour’s drive and Caen Ouistreham is 70 km.  The property is a 10 minute drive from either Fougerolles-du-Plessis with local amenities or the bustling market town of St. Hilaire du Harcouet with Normandy’s largest farmer’s market. Brittany’s Emerald Coast offering beautiful beaches is just 40 minutes away.
