Attractive cottage in a rural hamlet with garden and barn

This pretty cottage has a garden of over quarter of an acre and benefits from having a new roof in 2019. It is positioned in a quiet rural hamlet and has access to the Forest D'Andaine.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is found in Orne in the Normandy region of France. The closest airport is Deauville Airport (97 km).   Also nearby are Rennes Airport (106 km), Dinard Airport(112 km), or Angers Airport (118 km). The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is about 70 km away.  Local shopping facilities are in the village including a bakery, butchers, hairdressers, bar/tabac, post office and an infant school.  There is a school bus which stops near the house and goes to Flers and Domfront.  The house is in a lovely village, between Domfront and Bagnoles De L'Orne. It is located on the edge of La Foret D'Andaines.  More extensive facilities can be found in the medieval town of Domfront (7 km) and in the tourist town of Bagnoles de l'Orne (12 km).  It is 52 km from the department capital, Alençon.  The nearest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham which is about 1 hour's drive.
