About this property

Informal 18th Century Chateau in 3 Acres of Grounds. This chateau is in a rural setting.

Wonderful, informal Chateau, built in 1751 with a safe, secluded garden in 3 acres of grounds. Ideal location for several families to holiday, reunions or house parties - large rooms, 3 lounges and halls suitable for banquets. It is ideally situated in lovely countryside, 10km from Cherbourg and only 30 minutes from superb gulf stream beaches opposite Jersey. Just 3km from a great boulangerie and 8km from a huge hypermarket.
Local markets every day of the week.

The building dates from 1751 and has many unusual features and plenty of space - giant oak beams, Douglas redwood floors, stone fireplaces, an unusual dome shaped kitchen and 5 sets of french windows.
