Snuggle up in front of the antique woodburning stove or enjoy a glass of wine on the private terrace as the sun goes down. Stroll around the 17 hectares of beautiful grounds, pet the resident animals or wander to the local town across the fields for easy shopping and eating.

The property is situated on the outskirts of Trun in Orne, Lower Normandy - a typical small French town with a range of shops, restaurants and banks and a weekly market every Thursday. Ten minutes by car will get you to a large hypermarket in Argentan. If you can tear yourself away from the property then there’s lots to do in the surrounding area from historic World War II sites to farmer's markets and gastronomic restaurants.
Deirdre made us feel very welcome during our stay, and was very helpful providing us with some great tips on the local area. The cottage is lovely with a huge bedroom, great kitchen and a snug sofa with a wood burning stove. Hope to make it back soon!
