The Basse-Normandie region
The Normandy / Manche region is a fantastic area of France, offering a mix of traditional countryside, historic medieval towns and a wonderful coast with famous beaches.
Unrivalled cuisine such as the famous butter, fruits de mer, Calvados and regional cheeses would make a day trip here worthwhile in itself, but a holiday offers the chance to scratch beneath the surface and properly sample the huge range of sights.
The house is 20 minutes from the pretty town of Domfront, with its medieval walls. Domfront town originally dates back to the 11th century. Today Domfront offers great exploring, through the winding cobbled streets, the castle ruins, the two historical churches dating back to 1020, many historically buildings, and its half timbered houses. Critically, Domfront has two very good supermarkets with petrol stations!
About 30 minutes away is Bagnoles-de-l'Orne - a legendary spa town. Long established as a thermal resort, it is typical of all French spas, having an atmosphere of elegance and tranquillity and being sparkling clean and cared for in appearance. Bagnoles-de-l'Orne is nestled in 7,000 acres of forest (Parc Naturel Regional Normandie-Maine) which provides ample opportunity for walks, hikes and bikes!
Thirty minutes in the opposite direction is the market town of St Hilaire du Harcouet. The weekly Wednesday market provides a typically French atmosphere with a variety of stalls selling locally produced food and goods. A great opportunity to sample some of the local delights (farm produced cheese, chocolate and wax products).

"Great space, needs the electics "tidied""
Fab big house with space for all of us ( we were 3 adults & 4 Kids),
As the blurb says it is a personal space,(pictures,photos, nick knacks) fab if you like that sort of thing.
On the main road to Mont St Michel - road is busy with lorries day & night - but double glazing works well - glad it wasn't hot so we needed the windows open though.
Bedrooms configured a bit odd - one double off another, 2 doubles in one (large) room.
Lighting- our biggest bugbear - sorry light switches that did nothing, others miles from the room they operate, maybe labels would be a good idea, lighting in the kitchen was terrible.
Kitchen is nice & large but not well laid out.
Water - warning it is VERY hot, might be an issue if you have small children a bath would be a lovely addition.
Small garden overlooking an orchard - didn't get to use often - dam northern France Weather.
Good base to explore, most things are about an hour away.
