Converted in 2006/07. A comfortable, well equipped and spacious rural retreat idealy suited to families and set in four acres of beautiful french countryside.It is in a quiet location but within easy access to local amenities and outdoor pursuits. The surrounding area is ideal for walking, cycling and fishing.

This is a superb base for touring this interesting area and getting a taste for the real France.The beautiful fortressed town of Fougeres with its excellent shops, restaurants and cafes is only 20 minutes away. Local shops, bars and restaurants are only 5 minutes away.Many of the local towns have weekly markets which are definitely worth a visit.

Why not barbecue on arrival and relax with a complimentary bottle of wine or a few beers.
