House and 3 gîtes with over 3 acres and swimming pool in the Mayenne

This 19th Century detached farmhouse has been completely renovated and divided into Owners’ accommodation (with B&B potential) and 3 attached gîtes sleeping 7, 6 and 2 people.  The two larger gîtes are priced at £700 per week in peak season and the smaller one is £310 in peak season.  The current owners open from Easter until September and the property can be sold with its website.  The Owners’ accommodation and gîtes have all been renovated to retain character features such as exposed stone walls and beams.  They are pre-dominantly double glazed and the accommodation is well laid out and appealing.  The recent replacement of the in-ground swimming pool and the spacious, enclosed garden are a particularly appealing feature of this property.  It is believed that the paddocks could be used for camping (subject to official agreement with the Mairie).  Viewing is highly recommended for those looking for a home and income.

The property is situated near the Normandy and Loire Valley border in the Mayenne department.  It is 53 km from Laval with its mainline train station which gives easy access to Paris and 318 km from Calais.  The renowned thermal Spa town of Bagnoles-de-l’Orne is just 9 km away and the larger town of La Ferté-Macé is 12 km.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont-Saint-Michel is about an hour and a half’s drive.  It is 105 km from the ferry Port at Caen Ouistreham and 187 km from Cherbourg.
