About the property

Farmhouse in Hambye, Manche, Normandy, France - Peaceful Location In Pretty Normandy Countryside, Only 20 Minutes To Amazing Sandy Beaches

Le Mesnil Gonfroy is a very special old stone farmhouse set in rural Normandy 20 minutes from quiet sandy beaches. The house is really beautifully furnished and equipped with 6 bedrooms, well fitted kitchen, spacious breakfast room, large beamed living room with magnificent Normandy fireplace, dining room with table seating for 14 and a games room with table tennis. French doors lead to the beautiful mature gardens and superb private heated 10 x 5m swimming pool on the lower lawn. The sun terrace is a real suntrap and has pretty views over the surrounding countryside. Sun loungers, poolside furniture and BBQ are provided. Nearby, the pretty village of Hambye offers bars, restaurants and a market in addition to other shops where you can buy fresh food. The spacious, centrally heated farmhouse has been renovated to a very high standard and the house and pool are both wheelchair accessible. The house is close to Mont St Michel, D-Day Beaches, Bayeux Tapestry and interesting chateaus and abbey ruins.
