This pretty 3-bed farmhouse and 2-bed gite is surrounded by 8 acres of lovely gardens with paddocks, woodland and a stream. Situated just a short drive from the centre of a lively market town with schools, restaurants & shops, yet the house is tucked away in a lovely quiet spot. Just 25 mins from the beach, 1hr from the ferry port, this is a great home-and-income property.
The farmhouse has been renovated retaining many of the character features, there's no shortage of woodburning stoves, lovely stone walls and beams here! The ground are a particular highlight. 8 acres of gardens, woods and paddocks and there's even a stream meandering through, offering lots of potential for equestrian or small holding use.
Villedieu-les-Poeles is a very pretty market town and a popular place for tourists. The old streets and houses are builtt in the traditional Norman style with local grey stone and slate. There is a a good selection of shops, restaurants and services including schools and a hospital. Tuesday is market day when the town is particularly buzzy - a great time to sit back with a coffee in one of the market square cafes and watch the world go by.
The nearest beach is at Granville which is 25 minutes to the west and Unesco heritage site of Mont St. Michel, Bayeux and Avranches are all within an hour's drive. The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is the closest and can be reached in less than 1 hour, with Cherbourg Octeville, Saint Malo and Le Havre within easy reach. It is also well placed for other transport links with the airports at Caen Carpiquet and Deauville, Dinard and Rennes.
