Set in the heart of the French countryside and approached by a small no-through lane, this property is located in 2.5Ha of attractive, rolling land with amazing views. The land also boasts a small wooded area and a lake, which is believed to have been part of Julius Caesar’s land defences when he was based in the area. The streams on the land are fed from natural springs.

There are two decent sized villages nearby (11 km and 13 km) with a good range of local shops, supermarket, bars, cafés restaurants, banks, hairdressers, beauticians, opticians, pharmacies etc. Both villages also have primary and secondary schools. The local small village (3 km) has a primary school. About 15 minutes away is a public lake with a beach, canoeing, bars and restaurants.

Le Mans and Alençon offer all the amenities one would expect to find in a town. As well as a modern city centre with a tram system, Le Mans has a splendid example of a roman wall that wraps around the restored Plantagenet Old City; a maze of narrow cobbled ways, overhung with 14th Century timber-framed houses. Alençon is a delightful market town with many medieval buildings, plus modern shops and services.


Nearest feed suppliers is 3 km. Numerous equestrian centres within 15 km, as well as in Alençon. Unrivalled, world-class facilities in La Mans. Many farriers locally, vets in both the local villages mentioned above. Lots of open space for hacking, Le Trec events held regularly in the area.
