It is set in beautiful countryside but is not isolated and has rural views in abundance.

Just 30 mins drive takes you to the BAY OF MONT ST MICHEL - where a visit to the Mont is a must for all the family - where flat shoes though! It is open 363 days a year and there are shops, bars, cafes and restaurants to tempt you all the way to top where the views over the bay are second to none.

There are beautiful beaches at JULLOUVILLE and CAROLLES ideal for children for swimming and sunbathing and some water sports.

There are many cycle routes. Horse-riding is available and it is possible to ride across the sands at ST JEAN LE THOMAS - about 30 mins drive away

There is a watersports within easy reach at St MARTIN DES LANDELLES - about 15 mins drive. There is a great zoo at CHAMPREPUS and an aquarium at GRANVILLE. Near Mont st Michel is the REPTILARIUM with lots of crocodiles, alligators and tortoises to mention just a few.

Lots of golf courses within 1 hours drive at GRANVILLE, BREHALl and DINAN.

The war museums and the cemetaries at UTAH and OMAHA beach are all within an easy 1 hour drive. The American War Cemetary at St James can be seen nearby the house.

The medieval towns of AVANCHES, FOUGERES and VITRE all have quint cobbled streets with wooden clad buildings, castle ramparts and lots of cafes, bars and restaurants to relax in. The famous ILLUMINATED 1000 year old MANUSCRIPTS from Mont St Michel are now housed in a purpose built museum in AVRANCHES and should not be missed.

CANCALE is a beautiful fishing port in Brittany about 1 hour drive and is renowed for oysters and dishes of fresh Fruits de Mer. DINAN and DINARD are easy to get to and offer beaches, medieval streets and ramparts and river boat trips plus shops, cafes and restaurants a plenty.

There is so much to do in this area of Normandy and Brittany that it is impossible to put it all down, you need to come and visit to experience it yourself.!
