This spacious longère is comfortable and cosy with both central heating and a wood-burning stove. It is easily accessible from the UK for long weekends, being within easy reach of three cross-Channel ferry ports. There is a great conservatory overlooking the lovely, large garden.
The small village of Jublains has a restaurant, bar and bakery and is just 2 kms from the cottage - perfect for a morning stroll. The good-sized town of Mayenne (11kms) offers a much wider choice and has all the usual shops, supermarkets and health services that you would expect from a vibrant, dynamic economy. Market day is on a Monday and is the meeting place for all the locals. The shops range from intriguing little arts and crafts establishments, to super modern hypermarkets. The town also boasts a number of excellent restaurants, where you can sample the local cider.
The longère is tucked away down a country lane, with just a couple of neighbours for company. The front door opens into the generous sitting room (32m²) which has a stone fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and exposed ceiling beams. The fitted kitchen (27m²) has exposed stone walls, tiled floor and a range cooker. The ground floor accommodation includes a dining room, games room, WC and conservatory.
Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor which is light and bright. Four double bedrooms lead off the hallway and there is a bathroom with WC, and a shower room.
Attached to the property is a generous sized garage which houses the oil tank and the central heating boiler. In the pretty garden (over ¼ acre) are a couple of stone sheds for tools. There is some double glazing and all the ground floor windows have external shutters. The septic tank was replaced in 2018. We should mention that there are some minor maintenance and finishing jobs that any new owner should anticipate.
The ferry port of Caen is probably the closest and most convenient for reaching this property. It is an easy 2 hours drive. However, St Malo and Le Havre are only a little further. The temperate climate of the area, charming countryside villages dotted with picture-perfect cottages and the laid back pace of life appeals to holidaymakers and those looking for a second home. The region prides itself on rich greenery and delightful scenery, and is steeped in history.
