About the property

Farmhouse in Canflais, Cahagnes, nr. Vire, Calvados, Normandy, France - rural location with a garden, orchard and field.

Stone built artisan farmhouse with views from the front door across own orchard and fields. Situated in a small hamlet on the outskirts of the village of Cahagnes in the historic Normandy Bocage near the Loterot chateau, the house has been in the family as a second home for over 12 years. This is a great house for children to get to know the countryside, with a walled south-facing garden laid to lawn at the side, an orchard and a field to the front.

The hamlet is five minutes drive from the villages of Cahagnes or Caumont L’Evente. Both have bakers and a supermarket. The house has electric heaters in each of the rooms as well as a log burner in the main lounge and is equipped with all you will need for a great holiday.

About Richard Fox

We live in England with our two children and our dog, Leka.

We both work but try to spend long weekends at the house when we can and a week there during the summer.

Richard Fox purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Richard Fox chose Vire area

We were looking for a family holiday home in France that was a real get-away for us but close enough to get to for long weekends. We fell in love with Le Marronnier, which was in need of some TLC and ended up spending holidays there working on it and enjoyed days out when we could!

We met our lovely neighbours Pascal and Sandrine who are now good friends and look after the house for us when we're not there.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the fact that it's peaceful and in the countryside but we don't feel isolated, where we are.

And yet there are so many different things to do within a half hour drive; from the Normandy beaches, zoos, Bayeux with its tapestry and some great shopping to Caen with its great market and pretty port.

There are two equestrian centres locally for horse-riding and mini-golf a short walk up the lane from the house too!

Feel free to use our bikes when you're there, to explore the local countryside and villages.

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a lovely week in this cottage, its in a beautiful spot, so peaceful but stil within half an hour of some great places to visit, Normandy Beaches and Bayeux with some wonderful restersunts. St Michael's Mount is a bit further away but well worth a visit.

The cottage is very well equipped, everything you could possibly need for your stay is provided, beds are made up for you arrival which is very welcome if you have had a long journey. As is the tea, coffee etc. Loads of towels as well are provided.

Alison is a pleasure to deal with, answering emails promptly, and providing loads of useful information.

Would happily reccomend the cottage to anyone.
