The property is situated in a beautiful river valley, in the heart of the Normandy bocage. Despite its calm, out of the way setting, the house is in fact no more than a 5-minute drive from the quaint market town of Sourdeval. 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 Sée, 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 to the property from early 2017.
The cottage is approached either at the rear from a single track lane which climbs up the valley side, or directly from the adjacent country road. The land is divided into a garden area, with two further enclosures used by the current owner to raise poultry. Natural spring water is piped down to the house and collected in a large stone trough in the courtyard.
The main house is constructed of stone, with a natural slate roof which was completely renewed just three years ago. There is an attached conservatory, a two vehicle wooden car port and a detached garage built of concrete blocks.
The property is fully double glazed, with electrically operated shutters on all windows. Heating is by electricity. It consists of a living room, a modern, fully fitted kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms, a shower room, two W.C.s, a laundry room and two large basement rooms which require some finishing work.
Ground floor: laundry room (4.3m x 4.4m), W.C., corridor (0.9 m x 4.1m), bedroom 1 (3.3m x 3.4m), basement room 1 (4.6m x 6.2m), basement room 2 (4.0m x 4.5m).
First floor: living room (4.3m x 4.4m), kitchen/diner (4.4m x 5.4m) modern, fully fitted kitchen with kitchen island, corridor (0.9m x 3.3m), W.C., bedroom 2 (3.4m x 4.6m), shower room (1.5m x 3.8m), bedroom 3 (3.4m x 4.0m).

The cottage was completely modernised just three years ago, and successfully combines the old with the new.
