The Perfect Location and a beautiful bijoux 'jewel' of a house, a gem. A well-formed mignon 'cottage', a fabulous ‘pied à terre’ oozing authentic French charm situated in the protected conservation area in the historic elevated and unspoilt medieval town of Domfront-en-Poirae. Contact the owners for exclusive drone footage and a film of the interior to really appreciate the beauty.
‘Le joli pré’ (the pretty meadow) is located 1.5 - 2 hours to the major coastal Normandy/Brittany ports. 45 minutes to the world heritage site of Le Mont St. Michel and 2.5 - 3 hours to Paris.
‘le joli pré’ is a peaceful retreat with a stunning garden and meadow with spectacular views to the castle and far distant views across the ‘bocage’ landscape. It has all the benefits of being on the edge of a town (with utilities and shops) but yet with a truly rural atmosphere/location.
In an area steeped with history and atmosphere, ‘le joli pré’- fully renovated 14 years ago is located in a quiet lane in the shadows of the 11th century Domfront Castle, home to King Henry 2nd and Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine.
‘Le joli pré’ is a 2-3 bedroom cottage/house with three floor levels, an open plan fully equipped kitchen/diner and sitting room spread over the entire ground floor - and a wonderful loft/studio space on level 3, useful as a second leisure space or large bedroom as required. A gravel courtyard, a designed garden with two sheds are included with this attractive and endearing fully-modernised 300-year-old property. There is generous free on-street parking on our quiet lane - that is used only by the lane dwellers.
Le joli pré’ is only a short walk to the shops, cafés, bars, and the bakery for your morning croissant, and the Voie Verte - the former railway line - an excellent choice for walking and cycling on the flat. The church of Notre Dame Sur L’Eau is a few minutes walk away down the lane where St Thomas the Beckett was said to have ministered his priestly offices in the Middle Ages.
‘Le joli pré’ has an outstanding established holiday rental history including over 50 glowing 5-star reviews on HomeAway and also serves as a cherished second home for the current British/French speaking owners.
N.B. The floor area is larger than stated because we can only give the area above a certain ceiling height. The house is therefore larger than stated in the floor area.
