The cottage is close to a village where you can find the basic daily essentials but there is the market town of Sourdeval in one direction and Vire in the other where a wider range of services and amenities can be found. Each town is around a 15min drive.
The Lac de la Dathée is also nearby - its an ideal spot for walking, fishing and boating. There is also an 18 hole golf course 10 mins away in the Saint Sever Forest. The lovely beaches on the west coast of the Normandy peninsula are an hour’s drive and the ferry port of Cherbourg is a 40mins drive while Caen is an 80min drive.
