Superb detached house with B&B potential and gîte in Normandy

The property offers excellent family accommodation but would also lend itself to use as a B&B with 3 rooms which could be let, each with en-suite shower rooms or bathrooms.  The well appointed gîte is ideal for letting to 2 couples with almost identical bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms and spacious, well equipped, open plan living accommodation.  It sits in a quiet rural hamlet, within easy reach of amenities. It is ready to move in to.  The gîte is completely separate from the main house  - ideal for privacy and rents for £135 a night in peak season.  It boasts a 5 star Trip Advisor rating and a Premier Partner with Home Away.  The main house enjoys a large stone terrace, outbuildings and about half an acre of garden.  The overall plot is just under 3/4 acres.  Viewing highly recommended.

The property is situated in a peaceful position near the small town of Ger (with all everyday amenities) and with easy access to the historic market town of Mortain. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the Southwest of Normandy, near the border of Manche and Calvados.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour's drive away and the property  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 and the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 20 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
