It’s pretty surprising what you can get for your money in NW France, even in this area which is popular with Parisians for weekends. Holiday homes in the region are a great way to enjoy the French experience, without the need to travel by air. Access from the UK is so easy by ferry or Le Tunnel.  

This classic stone farmhouse is situated close to the small village of Chanu, which has a friendly bar, grocer’s shop and restaurant.  If markets are your thing then head for your weekly shop in either Flers (10 minutes by car) or Vire (15 minutes).  Views from all the windows in the house show the gentle rolling countryside around.  You don’t need to be of Tour de France standard to cycle these quiet roads which are at the gentler end of the spectrum.  There is plenty of fine walking, fishing, kayaking and golf at Flers.  Beaches are about an hour away.
