Outbuildings and Garden

Accessed from either the road or the kitchen. These were once the stables and could possibly be adapted to make a car port, or a wonderful seating area from just outside the kitchen. Plenty of storage room.
The garden is currently overgrown but could be easily returned to its former glory.


This beautiful village, which has the oldest tree in France in the local church yard, also has a restaurant, hairdressers and 2 shops for your everyday things.
It is surrounded by the beautiful Mayenne countryside with larger towns such as Gorron, Ernee, and Fougeres just 10 kms away and also the lovely market town of Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouet.
It is 40 min from the coast, 1.5hrs from Caen and Cherbourg and 30 min from Dinard and Rennes.
If this property is developed into a bed and breakfast it will have lots to offer, especially due to its central location. Alternatively, if it is kept a large house, the family will have a very beautiful property.
