Farmhouse in Landelles-et-Coupigny, Calvados, Normandy, France - Breathtaking Views from South Facing Hillside

Ideal accommodation with fully private bedrooms for one or two families, 2 couples, or a romantic holiday for 2 people.
About the Owner
Activity and Interests
Nearest beaches face the bay of Mont St Michel, and are about a 45-minute drive away. The best one is probably at Granville, which has spectacular cliffs, rocks to climb on, rockpools, and a seawater swimming pool.
Granville itself is a very interesting old fortified town with upmarket shops and restaurants, plus Christian Dior's house, which has a beautiful clifftop garden overlooking the sea.
Lingreville, also popular with children because of huge sand dunes.
The house is about 8km from J39 of the new A84 autotroute, midway between Caen and Rennes. The journey from the Brittany Ferries terminal at Caen-Ouistreham takes 1hr, or it is 1hr 15mins via new dual carriageway from the Cherbourg ferry terminal, and a similar time from the ferry terminal at St Malo.
In addition, it can be accessed via cut-price Ryanair flights from Stansted to Dinard or the equally cheap Flybe service from Southampton to Rennes. Car hire is available at both airports.
Nearest towns, Vire or Villedieu-les-Poeles, 20-30 mins, beaches 40 mins to 1hr. Mont St Michel is 1hr. Brilliant 'sons et lumieres' in summer. Canoeing, or swimming in the Vire river gorge, is about 4km away, riding, tennis and mountain bike hire also nearby. There is lots of additional information on restaurants, shops and attractions in the house.
The pretty village of Landelles has excellent bakers, butchers and grocers, plus small selection of market stalls once a week. St Sever, 8km away, is a larger village with seven day supermarket, banks, cash machines and a lively open air market.
