Fortified Château with gatehouse, outbuildings and nearly 7 acres

The property is one of an exclusive courtyard development of 5 properties. Some parts of this stunning property are believed to date back 1,000 years, with a large part re-built in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was surrounded by a moat and accessed by a bridge over the moat – you can still see the grooves of the drawbridge and a pedestrian gate entrance with the gatehouse above. The moat was probably filled in in the 1950’s and the only remaining section is now a pond.  It has been lovingly and sympathetically renovated by the present owners over the 12 years to offer superb modern living amenities with character features.  The bedrooms have been renovated to offer stylish en-suite facilities for each room.  The property has massive potential to create further living accommodation and be run as a luxury B&B or a fabulous family home.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a quiet  position within walking distance of the village and close to Périers (5.5km) and Saint-Lô (25km) .  It has easy access to Bayeux and the D-Day Landing Beaches.   The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel, a must see for anyone visiting Normandy and is just a short distance along the coast (about 85km).  Within a short distance is a 9 hole golf course.  It is almost equidistant from the ferry ports at Cherbourg and Caen Ouistreham.  It is a 4 hour drive from Calais.
