Property Description

This fine, double-fronted house is hidden away in a rural, farming hamlet just a few minutes drive from the town of Vire.  The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, with plenty of light and high ceilings.  The outbuilding, which is in excellent condition, would be ideal for conversion into a gîte.

Overlooking the vast forests of Lower Normandy, Vire is an historic town with a population of about 14,000.  In the 17th and 18th centuries it flourished as a centre for agriculture and trade.  However, its strategic position also meant that in 1944 it suffered badly, when much was destroyed to hamper allied advancements.  Nowadays there are a number of fine restaurants in the town, supermarkets, bowling, a golf course, lake, swimming pool, hospital, riding school and a wide range of shops.  There is a mainline station with trains both to Paris and Granville.  Market day is on a Friday.  

Easy to reach from the UK, this region is extremely popular with buyers looking for a second home.  The ferry ports of Caen (one hour), Cherbourg, St Malo and Le Havre are all within easy easy driving distances.  Calais and the Channel Tunnel are about 4 hours away.  The attractive  beach at Granville is less than an hour by car.
