Two delightful cottages in enclosed grounds with swimmimg pool. Located in a small hamlet, peaceful and rural area. Only two km from the village of St Georges De Reintembault.
Located in a small hamlet on the borders of the Departments of Ille-et-Vilaine (Brittany) and Manche (Normandy) these two traditional Breton cottages are set in peaceful rural surroundings with open undulating countryside yet are close to all amenities. South facing, they enjoy delightful views across meadowland and nestle alongside a beautiful copse. To the front of the properties is an enclosed courtyard and landscaped grounds with barbecues, dining areas and a solar heated swimming pool - to the rear our own field. Within easy reach is the Normandy town of St James (approximately 4 kms) which is famous for "Tricot St James", a celebrated manufacturer of high quality leisurewear. St James will accommodate your everyday needs with its well-stocked supermarket and out of town hypermarket with petrol station, street market (Mondays), post office, banks, bakers/patisseries, bistro, bars and good restaurants.
