The property is situated in a beautiful river valley untouched by the modern world for over 200 years, in the heart of the Normandy bocage. It is 75 minutes from the ferry port at Ouistreham, and 20 minutes from the fast rail link to Paris at Vire, making day trips to the capital a reality. All modern conveniences are to be found in Vire, including several major supermarkets, shops and good quality restaurants. The world famous Mont-Saint-Michel is 45 minutes away, as are the beautiful sandy Atlantic beaches between the Mont and Granville to the north. The river, which is famous for its salmon fishing, runs close by, and the nearest access point to the long distance footpath, bridleway and cycle track linking Vire to the Mont-Saint-Michel is a 5-minute drive away. An 18-hole golf course is 15 minutes away, alongside Lake Dathée, with its nature reserve, footpaths and water sports centre. Fibre optic cables will deliver a super-fast internet connection from September 2016.
