Delightful village house with plenty of character and attractive garden
This detached farmhouse is believed to have been built in 1629 and it is situated in a quiet position on the outskirts of a pretty Market Town.  It benefits from wood framed double glazed windows with shutters and it was re-wired and had a new central heating system with a gas combi boiler installed about 6 years ago.  It is quirky and interesting with many character features.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The local town of Gavray, which is just a couple of minutes by car, has a supermarket as well as a choice of restaurants, banks, shops etc. A very popular market is held in the town every Saturday morning. The pristine sandy beaches of the west coast are a mere 20 minutes drive away. The port of Granville, the famous 'copper' town of Villedieu-les-Poêles, and Countances with its Cathedral, are all within 20 minutes or so, and the UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and the D-Day beaches are all within easy reach.  Airports at Cherbourg, Dinard and Rennes all around 1 hour and 15 minutes. The Ports of Caen Ouistreham and Cherbourg  are about 1 1/4 hours drive and the Port of Le Havre 2 hours. The Channel Tunnel is approximately 4 hours. The Port of Granville and the coast is  25 minutes. In the summer there is a daily ferry crossing to Jersey. Direct rail link to Paris from Villedieu-les-Poêles which is 20 minutes drive.
