Bijoux Townhouse with a garden in a Medieval Town in Normandy

This beautiful house was built over 300 years ago and  has been completely renovated over the last 14 years by the present owners, with works overseen by an Architect.  It was taken back to bare walls and a staircase inside and then put back together again to create a light, well-appointed, pleasing environment in which to holiday or live.  The owners let the property when they are not using it, although it is only ever let to a couple and they do not have access to the owners' bedroom.  It has a proven holiday rental potential and website.  It would be an ideal holiday home.   Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the north west of France,  in the department of Orne in Normandy.  The property is in a quiet residential position on the outskirts of the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities.  Also nearby, you will find Lassay -les-Chateaux (13km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l'Orne, about 22km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.  La-Ferté-Macé (15km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The larger town of Mayenne is 27 km away.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 80km and the D-Day landing beaches are 112km.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (30km) with the TGV at Laval (52km) and airport and ferry are at Caen Carpiquet (76km).  Rennes airport is also within easy reach (98km).
