Full Description

The combination of majestic views while being sheltered in the lee of a hillside sets the theme of this authentic 19thC farmhouse with a gite.

From the elegant hall and original staircase to the airy well-proportioned rooms, the overall effect is relaxed, not contrived. The wealth of authentic period detail (chandeliers, door-fittings, floor tiles etc.) provides subtle charm but never overwhelms this family home. At the top of the house is a large loft, already insulated, which offers the exciting prospect of a modern open-plan counterpoint to the traditional rooms below. A pretty cottage garden frames the house and beyond it a hectare of meadow with walnut and fruit trees with ample vantage points to enjoy views of what feels like all of Normandy!

The house is accompanied by a very spacious two bedroomed gite, and a large barn with open hangar which offers scope for parking, storage and workshop. The property is approached down its own private lane which traverses the meadow to the entrance of what was once a small farm complex of buildings.


Located pleasantly between the Pays D’Auge and Percheron regions of France. The region is noted for it’s pleasant open countryside, with wide valleys, rivers and forested areas. Outdoor activities feature prominently. Hunting, fishing and horse riding. Main towns of Argentan and Alencon within about 40 minutes. Within 90 minutes of fashionable Deauville and Honfleur. Paris is accessible by road in about two hours and a regular train service is available from Argentan.
