Lovely rural setting in own grounds with a pretty lake down the hill and through the woods. Only caught a few small fish in the lake but enjoyed the wildlife all around. The house is in the middle of the countryside but Gorron with a supermarket and typical small town shops was only ten minutes by car so very convenient. The house was clean and well equipped and the friendly cows in the field next to the track acknowledged us each day! A lovely area to explore.

A lovely typical country style house in the most beautiful setting with spacious grounds, woods and a lake. This is the ideal location for touring many parts of Normandy and Brittany, situated near to Gorron which has small shops and restaurants and a large supermarket which sells everything you need.

The house itself is very comfortable and homely, with a very well equipped new kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, bath and two showers, English TV and DVD player and lovely views over the surrounding fields and countryside.

It is a lovely place to relax & unwind with an abundance of birds and wildlife within the grounds, yet within fairly easy reach of the coast (Mont St Michael is worth a visit) and also the numerous small villages and larger towns (Mayeinne etc).

The owner was very informative and provided answers to all my queries prior to our visit and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and indeed hopefully will return at some time in the future.
