This is a rare opportunity to purchase a quaint 1 bedroomed cottage set in its own grounds on the edge of a quiet village 5 minutes from St.Mere Eglise.
The cottage dates from the 18th century and is a former bakery for the local Chateau and retains many original features.
The accommodation comprises of a living room with an open fire and has a small fitted kitchen. There is a seperate WC and wash basin on the ground floor.
Upstairs there is a cosy bedroom with an en suite facility (Bath with shower over).
The area is steeped in history from the liberation of France in 1944 and is only 5 minutes from St.Mere Eglise which was liberated by American paratroopers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions on the 6 June 1944.
The East and West coast of the Cherbourg peninsula is less than 15 minutes away with its range of Pretty village harbours and sandy beaches (including Utah Beach).
The other major tourist attractions of Normandy are within an hour including Le Mont St.Michel / Bayeux / D-Day landing beaches etc etc.
The property is only ten minutes from the N13 which will take you to Cherbourg which has regular ferries to the UK and Ireland. There is a main line railway station 15 minutes away in Carentan (which also has a popular harbour) with regular trains to Paris. The ferry por of Ouistreham is also within an hour with regular ferries to Portsmouth.
