At the far end of the garden another raised terrace is shaded by an oak tree and is a lovely place to sit in peace, surrounded by fields and enjoying a glass of wine.

It is a straightforward day trip to reach firther into Brittany, or the Bayeaux tapestry and the D Day landing beaches. If you need a larger property please look at listings 163472 and 6625329..
