Cottage overview - owner's description

Ancient Norman stone and timber detached "colombage" cottage believed to date back to the 14th century in a sleepy village in a national park. Over the centuries, the cottage has been a prison during the French Revolution, a customs post and a guard-house. Now converted into a spacious but cosy gite, full of historical character, but with all modern conveniences.

The property offers two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom, and a tiny but atmospheric "monk's cell" with a single bedroom.

The stairs to the main bedroom are very steep and may be unsuitable for young children and the elderly.

There is a large, fully equipped kitchen-diner with a dishwasher, oven and hob, microwave and washer-dryer.
The sitting room is large, but cosy with two well-loved sofas where the largest of dogs can find comfort.

The village, which is situated in a national park, is a few kilometres from the medieval city of Domfront which boasts a well-preserved Norman keep and an ancient heart with narrow winding streets.

The town of Flers, which is about a thirty minute drive away, has an excellent market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Also nearby is the fashionable spa town of Bagnoles de L'Orne, with excellent restaurants and interesting shops.

Mont St Michel and the D-day beaches are well within reach for a day trip.
