The Cottage in Calvados, a cottage in Normandy: The Cottage exterior

A delightful stone cottage in a peaceful location with private drive and garden

Nestled in the quiet of the Normandy countryside, this delightful stone cottage is accessed by a private, gated drive, off a single track road, and sits in its own grounds with wonderful views across the rolling hills and valleys of the Bocage. The cottage is on the Calvados/Manche border about a 45-minute drive from Caen or 1 hour 15 min drive from Cherbourg.

Situated about 10 minutes’ drive from the charming market towns of Torigni-sur-Vire and Beny Bocage it is a superb base for exploring historic Normandy, its beaches and wonderful town. The Normandy D Day Beaches, Arromanches, Bayeux, Swiss Normandy and Le Mont St Michel are all within a 50-minute drive, as are many chateaux and interesting towns. Nearby villages have small stores, boulangeries and cafes and there are many restaurants within 20 minutes’ drive.
Alternatively, there is plenty of walking to be had from the cottage and for those who have tired of life; there is the famous Viaduct de Souleuvre with its Bungee-jumping centre!

The cottage has 3 bedrooms; a double bedroom on the ground floor and 2 separate twin bedrooms on the first floor reached by a typical "cottage" staircase.

On the ground floor there is:-
• A living room with cast iron stove and stone fireplace, two seater sofa, two armchairs, side tables and a bookcase full of books. Also,a radio/CD/iPod player, a DVD player and a digital TV ( French channels only).
• A separate fully fitted kitchen with electric oven, hob and extractor fan, fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster and a dishwasher together with a table and 6 chairs.
• A bathroom with a loo, washbasin, full sized bath and a separate shower cubical off the main bathroom. The washing machine is also in the bathroom.
• A large double bedroom (double bed) with wardrobe, chest of drawers, tables and a chair.
The water heating is a standard French electric system. There are also electric background heaters if needed.

The first floor is reached by an open tread cottage staircase and has:-
Two twin bedrooms and a small landing. A "child gate" is ready to be put in place at the top of the stairs if needed.

Duvets and pillows are provided but not bed linen or towels.

The cottage is within a 4G service area and the reception for mobile phones and tablets is generally good.

An idyllic, peaceful and safe place for children and adults alike.
