Le Portail is a strongly built barn conversion having lots of character and charm. Originally built in 1793 and then renovated by the current English owners who have lived in the property for 23 very, very happy years. Situated on the outskirts of a small village and 5 minutes from the Normandy border. For a number of years the owners ran a hugely successful bed and breakfast business although not now, but we are sure if you so wished could be used for this purpose again. Our much loved house could be yours in no time, once the legal side is dealt with as no chain is involved.
