Year property purchased 2016
Why this location? We first visited Normandy in 2015 and fell in love with the location. The countryside is stunning and it is such a peaceful area.
We have been made to feel so welcome in this area and have made some fantastic friends.
The local town of Trun is a vibrant lively place with several shops, bars and a music club. We are close to Falaise where William the conquerers castle is located and also the location of the famous Falaise pocket movement in the second world war.
The region of Normandy also boasts the origin of Calvados and cheeses such as Pont L'Eveque and Camembert
The house is an hours drive from the ferry port at Caen making it an easy location to get to from the UK.
Unique benefits of property The property has been recently renovated to a high standard and has 4 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are ensuite.
The bedrooms are all double bedrooms and there are 2 family size rooms which have a double bed and 2 single beds.
There is a large dining room and living room so it is suitable for families.
The property is located on an organic farm which has been owned by the same family since the house was built in the 1800's.
There is a large garden with views across the one valley and it is close to walking and cycling routes.
