Plenty of space indoors and out in this beautifully restored old farmhouse in the French countryside. Big sitting room, spacious kitchen/diner/TV room, study and big bedrooms. UK and French TV plus broadband. Relax on the paved terrace with a barbecue or wander through the extensive grounds and lovely gardens. 2km to the nearest village with all the services you need, and charming towns, chateaux and villages to visit near by. 1.5 hours from the Normandy beaches or Le Mont St Michel. Wheelchair access available. Cots and high chairs available.
Perfect for multiple or extended families. There are seven bedrooms each with a double bed, and an eighth very large bedroom which has six single beds - ideal for children. Four bathrooms, a large kitchen diner and two sitting rooms mean there is plenty of room inside as well as outside.
Outside, the terrace runs along the length of the back of the house, and provides plenty of space for outdoor eating and cooking. Outdoor tables, sunshades and chairs are provided. A gas barbecue is available, together with a firepit on a stand for the cooler evenings (wood available in the barn). There is a further paved area at the gable end, with table and chairs.
There are three outdoor buildings accessible from the terrace. The Bread Oven building is used for storing outside furniture and also houses a further fridge for larger stocks of cold drinks. The Glasshouse is used for overwintering plants and for potting and growing. The Wood Barn contains wood for fires and the firepit.
There is parking for around 6 cars, including two undercover spaces in the open barn. The open barn also has some swings for children and plenty of clothes lines.
The gardens are large, with mature trees and shrubs as well as herbaceous borders and large areas of lawn. There are garden benches at various places throughout the gardens. There is a very small stream running through the property, as well as extensive lawns, paths and woods. There is a wildlife pond (fenced) with an adjoining deck where you can sit and watch the dragonflies and other wildlife. There is plenty of space for children to play, and swings and other play equipment are provided.
Normandy is a beautiful county full of picturesque towns, chateaux and gardens. The coast at either the Normandy Beaches to the north or St Malo and Le Mont St Michel to the west is around 1.5 hours drive. The nearby village of Ambrières-les-Vallées provides a swimming pool, kayaking, mini golf, horse riding and other activities during the summer months, and slightly further afield are leisure parks such as Ange Michel and Festyland, zoos such as Champrepus, water parks such as Centre Aquatique at Condé-sur-Noireau and much more.
