Domfront, Orne, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
This cosy 300yr old colombage cottage is situated in the verdant green countryside of Lower Normandy almost at the border with the Loire Valley, just 65 miles (1.5 hours) from the port of Oustreham/Caen. Located within the Parc Naturel Regionale de Normandie Maine, it is one of only four cottages in the tiny hamlet of La Pépinière, yet still has a shop for daily provisions within a short walk of less than 1 km. All other amenities can be found just 5 mile away in Domfront with its weekly market and medieval centre.

Oozing with character, the cottage has a huge open log fire, exposed stonework, and huge oak beams . The internal decoration is sympathetic to the ambience of the property, with a well equipped country style kitchen with range cooker and a multi-function shower and double handbasin in the shower room.
