Equestrian Property France Ltd
Location: Near Domfront, Département of Orne, Normandy.
Price: €475,000
Status: For Sale
ID: 746

A figure of approximately 6.5% should be added to the purchase price to cover Tax, Registration and Notary Fees.

Ideal for those wishing to find a home and income. The 2 gites have been successfully let by the present owners.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the spacious, airy accommodation.

The two gites were originally a large cider barn that has been sympathetically converted into 2 completely separate properties with separate water and electricity meters, and separate “all-water” septic tanks.  The renovation works were completed by French artisans in 2007 and both properties benefit from electric heating and double-glazed hardwood windows.
The property is situated in the north west of France, in the department of Orne in Normandy.  3km away is the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities.  Also nearby, you will find Lassay -les-Chateaux (13km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 10km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.  La-Ferté-Macé (15km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 75km and the D-Day landing beaches are 112km.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (25km) with the TGV at Laval (52km) and airport and ferry are at Caen Carpiquet (100km).  Rennes airport is also within easy reach (98km).
