About the property

Your very own woodland retreat, this fantastic property is set in 200 acres of private woodland with stunning views and a river and lake for private fishing.

Set in 200 acres of stunning woodland with panoramic views, La Grande Roche is named after the large rocks which provide a perfect backdrop to the two properties within its grounds. The private grounds provide a perfect place to explore the extensive woodland with a river and lake for private fishing (must be requested at time of booking, €70pw including licence). There is a large games room and a swimming pool with a terrace for relaxing with a glass of wine. La Grande Roche is located in a small hamlet only 3km from Mortain with its historic abbey. Vire, with its shops and market, is a 20-minute drive; further afield (one hour’s drive) are the Normandy beaches. For sandy beaches, both Granville and Carolles are within easy driving distance and offer a typical French seaside resort atmosphere. From Granville, boat trips to beautiful Mont St Michel can be taken. A trip not be missed is Bayeux - famous for its tapestry as well as many interesting shops and museums. A perfect holiday location.

Was für ein fantastischer Urlaub!!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Zeit in La Grande Roche ist wie im Fluge vergangen!

Sogar bei unseren vier Wochen, auch wenn das Wetter nicht immer so sommerlich war.

Es ist so wunderbar ruhig, das Grundstück so schön, das Angeln so kurzweilig, der Pool so gepflegt, der Bach so abenteuerlich, das Haus so schön und der Besitzer Mark so sympathisch.

Alle, zwei Familien mit insgesamt sechs Kindern, konnten in diesem Urlaub richtig entspannen und/oder viel Spaß haben.

Die Ortschaften in der Nähe bieten alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Vom Supermarkt bis Wochenmarkt. Aber auch tolle Bäckereien, Schlachter und Weinläden!

Ein bisschen weiter sollte man sich Avranches (jardin des plantes), Mont Saint Michel, St. Malo, Cancale, das Dorf Domfront mit seiner genialen Bäckerei (in der Nähe der Post) und den nächsten Sandstrand (ca. 35 Minuten Fahrtzeit) nicht entgehen lassen.

Durch die Spielscheune, das riesen (echt riesig) Grundstück, das große Haus und den Pool kommt aber auch keine Langeweile auf, wenn man einfach nicht wegfährt und evtl. die Wanderwege in Anspruch nimmt.

Wirklich zu empfehlen!
