This is an ideal holiday home (or main home for a couple or small family) with character, a few minutes from the lovely west coast of the Cotentin peninsula and the towns of Barneville-Carteret and Portbail - about 30 minutes south of Cherbourg.
The house is built of stone with a slate roof and has three rooms: downstairs there is a typically French "multi-purpose" room with kitchen/living room, toilet, separate shower, and a lovely fireplace with a wood burner; on the first floor is another living room or bedroom, and there is a bedroom in the converted attic. Each floor measures about 5 metres by 5 metres.
It has been recently renovated, with new wiring, electric central heating, shower and water heater. It has a special aerial which means you can receive English TV channels via Jersey, as well as French TV.
There is no garden but along the front of the house you have a concrete area suitable for a bar-b-q with table and chairs: no need to spend your holiday mowing the grass and weeding the drive!
The house was built in 1786 (3 years before the French Revolution) and retains many old features such as the massive beams and the fireplace which has been renovated to take a modern wood burner. It has been rewired and has an English-style shower and water heater in the kitchen: i.e. they run cheaply off cold water rather than heated water from a tank - the hot water tank can still be used, though. This room has a lovely feel about it which the photo cannot fully capture.
