You have a private garden with apple and cherry trees. And a lovely view on the surrounding landscape. The cottage has a very cosey living area with...

About the neighbourhood
Suggestions for things to do:

- Fish for your own tea at the local trout farm and cook it in the open on the stone barbecue when you get home.

- Wander around Ducey, Avranches, or St Hilaire (great market Wednesday mornings).

- Cancale is around an hours' drive, this lovely fishing village is the home to some of the best seafood restaurants in France.

- Visit the medieval hilltop town of Mortain and wander around the waterfalls, take in the panoramic scenery up by the chapel, where one of the significant events of WWI occurred in August 1944; for six nights the Americans of the 30th Infantry Division fought valiantly (with one radio with dying batteries) against the G...
