Wooden house in the bay of Mont St Michel
Our bright little wooden environment-friendly wooden house is located in a village with all amenities between sea and countruside, 15 minutes from the beach, 15 minutes from the seaside resort of Granville and 40 minutes from the Mont Saint Michel, one of the seven World Wonders.
Our house is ideal for a family : a terrace, a garden with outdoor games, in a quiet neighborhood.
In our village, all shops at a walking distance: 2 bakeries, a corner shop, a butcher's, a caterer, a small supermarket, a pizzeria and a post office. On each Friday morning, there is a small marker. On Thursday evening, there is an organic farm 3 minutes away by car.
Parking space on our driveway. Our home is not on the side of the road, which is very safe and also quiet!
In the garden there is a swing+slide, a football goal and a hut full of outdoor games, including 2 landing nets for fishing and a bodyboard. On the terrace, there is a large picnic table, a small one for the little ones, a pergola (recently installed) and 2 deckchairs for the grown-ups! A shelter for the wood for the stove and the bicycles. The house being new, the whole garden is not yet landscaped... but raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants... are starting to grow to delight the taste buds and some flowers for the pleasure of the eyes.
Covered entrance to put down the flip-flops full of sand and the hiking shoes...then in the entrance of the house, dressing room to put down coats and shoes.
On the ground floor: a fitted kitchen, a 6-8 seat table and a small living room with a sofa bed and an armchair. In the living room: a keyboard, a stereo system, board games, a lot of books and drawing materials for the children on a small table. Storeroom with washing machine and dryer. Toilet.
On the first floor: a bathroom with bathtub, 1 bedroom for adults with a double bed, a TV and a booksheld; 2 bedrooms for children (one with an extra bed) with games and many books; toilet. Possibility to add an umbrella bed in one of the bedrooms or one or two mattresses on the floor!
IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY: It is possible to walk from our house or cycle in the Norman countryside called "bocage". After 15 minutes by car, many walks on the coast are possible with varied landscapes: view on the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, cliffs and large beaches. A crossing of the Bay is an unforgettable experience, it is essential to do it with a guide for safety reasons (see https://www.gambettes-enbaie.fr/)
