Brief Description - Lovely village home

Ideal lock up and leave holiday home in Lower Normandy. Low maintenance rear garden.  Walkng distance to the bar in the village.

Brief description of the lovely village house

The property is situated in a small village about 12 kilometres from the large town of Vire in the department of Calvados in Basse Normandie. The village is lucky in having a bar resturant general store – ideal to help integrate into the local Normandy culture – and no need to drive home after a drink or a meal.

The house itself has been maintained and renovated to a high standard by its present owners who have lived locally for several years.

The property could be a main residence but to be honest its an ideal lock and leave holiday home – low maintenance garden, bar restaurant in walking distance, well placed for ferries and easy access to the coast. The large town of Vire is only a few kilometres away with good range of shops and amenities and mainline train station.
