Medieval house with character features in Normandy

Walking into this house is like stepping back in time but with modern day comforts.  There is a small but charming interior courtyard which gives access to a separate lounge and two bedrooms and bathroom - ideal for someone wishing to do Air B&B.  There are plenty of exposed beams, wood panelling and exposed stone walls and the layout is versatile and a bit quirky! Ideal lock and leave holiday home or full time home within a short walk of all amenities.  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).
