This delightful character cottage is ready for immediate use. It just ticks so many boxes. With a new roof, re-wiring, new windows, floors, kitchen and bathroom as well as a good sized but not overwhelming garden. Easy to reach from the UK. This will be a popular choice at a little over £100,000.
The charming market town of Brécey is in the south-west of Lower Normandy. It is surrounded by gentle and idyllic countryside and is within easy reach of the coast and the many attractions of the region. The property is about 10 minutes by car from the town centre, where there are supermarkets, banks, bakers, bars and restaurants. It also has good access to horse-riding and swimming. Market day is on a Friday. The nearby towns of Villediue-les-Poêles and Avranches offer a slightly wider choice.
Brécey enjoys a fantastic location in this very popular region. You can spend time on the beautiful beaches of France’s north-western coast and visit the remarkable heritage site of Mont St Michel. The “copper” town of Villedieu (famed for its copper pots and pans) and the stunning medieval town of Avranches are all within very each reach.
The nearest airports are at Rennes and Dinard. Nearby ferry ports include St.Malo, Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre. The nearest major road is the A84.
