' A modernised, traditional French farm house with outside pool, in the Normandy Countryside, only 15 minute drive from sandy beaches. Less than 90 minutes drive from each of the ferry ports: Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo It has the perfect balance of feeling as if you are in your own world, away from the stresses of city life, but it is only a 5 minute drive from your local village Trelly, which while small contains most of the essentials. The house is also a 15 minute drive from the lovely, larger town of Coutances with its beautiful Gothic Cathedral and well keep gardens.'
