Villedieu-les-Poeles, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
The house is in a quiet side road close to the center of this lovely old market town. It has very spacious and well furnished accommodation over two floor and is primarily used as the owners second home. A very sunny back garden ideal for relaxing, Villedieu is famous for the copper trade and has one of the few existing Bell Foundries left in France. The town is well equipped with boulangeries, charcuteries restaurants and cafes - Tuesday is market day and not to be missed.

This house is ideally situated just yards from the centre of one of the most attractive and vibrant small towns in the area.

This connection goes back to the crusades when they started to make the copper pots in the town. Obviously this has progressed as apart from the copper pots and pans there is also...

A very pleasant, well-maintained house in a very agreeable small market town, celebrated for its foundries (‘-les-Poêles’ are the ‘frying pans’ but the town’s fame nowadays is more about its bell foundry). The street is quiet – a little music from the Music School across the road, but it doesn’t become a nuisance – and the house is very comfortable,...
