Has everything you need for memorable French rural adventure. Great location for exploring Normandy. Cosy and more than enough space if you just want to put your feet up in front of the log burning stove aswell. Lovely helpful owners. Highly recommend.

About the neighbourhood
The pretty market town of Vire is a 15 minute drive away where you will find supermarkets, boulangerie, patisserie, cafe and bars surrounding the beautiful historic castle remains. Market day is Friday and the cafes are a great place to sit and watch the world go by. There is a swimming pool in Vire with water slides and family pool which is very well priced. There is a municipal golf course and the stunning Lac Dathee just outside of Vire too. The D day landing beaches and coastal resorts such as Granville, Houlgate and Carrolles (great rock pooling for kids!) are all about an hours drive away. The Bayeux Tapestry, Mont Saint Michel, Le Mans, Caen and the British War Cemetery are all within an hour’s drive.
Getting around
In rural France a car is a must!
There is a train station in Vire where you can catch a train to Paris in 2.5 hours.
If you want to explore beautiful scenery then the area of Suisse Normand and Bagnoles de Lorne are within an hours drive. Mont Cerissy Belle Etoille is 15 minutes away and a great day out with a picnic and the kids. This beautiful park is set around an old castle ruin and there are stunning view points with woodland walks. You can have lunch on the river in Pont D'ouilly which is only 20 minutes away.
