A relaxing holiday destination, this pretty, centrally-heated house is high on the slopes of a south-facing hill. Offering breathtaking views across a wide valley to the forests of St Sever 10 miles away, it is perfect for walkers, golfers, cyclists and canoeists, and is close to the sandy beaches of the Bay of Mont St Michel. Ideal accommodation with fully private bedrooms for one or two families, 2 couples, or a romantic holiday.
Plenty to do
Nearest beaches face the bay of the iconic Mont St Michel, and are about a 45-minute drive away. The best one is probably at Granville, which has spectacular cliffs, rocks to climb on, rockpools, and a seawater swimming pool.
Granville itself is a very interesting old fortified town with upmarket shops and restaurants, plus Christian Dior's house, which has a beautiful clifftop garden overlooking the sea.
Lingreville, also popular with children because of huge sand dunes.
In addition, within a 15 minute drive of the house you will find adventure parks with toboggan runs and aerial slides as well as tree walks, local markets, cider presses and wonderful markets of every kind.
The city of Bayeux with its eponymous tapestry is under an hour away and is perfect for a day trip with a visit of the D Day beaches included.
For golf fans, the fantastic Scottish-style coastal golf links of Granville, designed by Harry Colt in 1912 is less than an hour's drive away. The Granville centre also offers a further nine-hole seaside course, and there is another nine-hole golf course about 15 minutes drive from the house.
