With views over the River Sée, standing in glorious mature grounds and offering total peace and quiet, this character cottage is a perfect example of Normandy at its very best. The property is about 5kms from the cheerful little market town of Sourdeval, which has shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Market day is on a Tuesday when you will find many stalls selling local soft cheeses and of course, cider. Normandy is known for its apple trees, Calvados (apple brandy) and dairy cattle.
The region is loved by walkers, horse riders, cyclists and fisherman. There is an 18-hole golf course just 15 minutes away. Visitors to the area will want to see Mont St Michel or perhaps if the weather is warm, make a trip to the seaside at Granville. The nearest ferry port is at Caen (80 minutes), but Cherbourg and St Malo are only a little further. Fancy a day trip to Paris? …then take the fast train from Vire (12kms).
