An exceptional, detached, spacious 2/3 bedroom 17th century TIMBER FRAMED COLUMBAGE LONGERE with original features and IMMENSE CHARACTER and charm that is presented in excellent condition. Ideal family home or a 'maison secondaire'. Situated IN A SMALL HAMLET at the end of a Roman 'chemin' and overlooking a prime Pays D'Auge valley with UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS.
