Set in the heart of the village of Desertines, this 200 year old stone house provides an ideal base from which to visit the many local attractions including Mont Saint-Michel, the medieval town of Domfront and the Normandy beaches. The village boasts an English run pub which serves locally brewed "English style" bitter and serves lunch and evening meals. Themed meals are offered on Friday nights (e.g. fish & chips, curry and Chinese food) and Sunday lunch is also available. There is also a French run bar/restaurant for the more authentic French cuisine and lunch time Plat de Jour and this is also the local Post Office. Freshly baked bread and cakes can be purchased from the village bakery and there is the convenience of a village mini mart. All are within walking distance.
The property is well equipped and ideal for families; DVD's and videos provided as well as a selection of toys and games. There is an outdoor activity centre nearby with canoeing, archery, crazy golf and outdoor swimming pool. An amazing aquarium, a zoo and castle are all within approx an hour's drive as well as unspoilt beaches for sun worshippers and sandcastle builders! This is an ideal retreat for those seeking a relaxing break - alfresco dining in the private terraced garden with both sun-trap and shaded areas. For garden lovers the nearby Jardin de Renauds is a must as well as the award winning flower filled village of St Frambault. History fans can visit the fascinating medieval town of Domfront and look down on the area from the castle ramparts. The racetrack and museum at Le Mans makes a fabulous day out for petrol-heads. It is only a 10 minute drive to nearest town of Gorron, with large supermarkets, shops, restaurants, cafe bars, doctors, pharmacy and petrol stations.
