About the property

6 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Barn Conversion in Peaceful Rural Location

Conillet is a beautiful barn conversion with spacious accommodation and 'home from home' comforts. The large lounge area, with central woodburner, has a double height ceiling, plenty of comfy sofas and steps up to the dining room with 12 seater dining table and archway to the well appointed modern kitchen. There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor (sharing a shower room and toilet) - one with doors opening out to the garden. Stairs from the lounge lead to a galleried landing with 2 bedrooms on one side of the barn sharing a bathroom/toilet and a bridge across to 2 further bedrooms that share a bathroom with spa bath, separate shower and toilet.

The property is in a peaceful rural location with a south facing garden overlooking acres of countryside. Just 2km from Ceauce which provides for all of your everyday needs but also within convenient reach of the medieval town of Domfront or Mayenne with its bustling town on the river. Ideal central location for touring the historical sights of Normandy.

Conillet has been our home for the last 15 years and is full of memories - we hope you decide to visit and add your own.

Kitchen and dining

Large and bright modern kitchen lots of cupboards and granite work surfaces. Range style cooker with electric oven and hobs, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, wine fridge, microwave and coffee-maker. There is a central island with extra prep sink. Just off the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine, tumbledryer, iron, ironing board, vacuum cleaner and all cleaning materials as well as an extra toilet with hand basin.

Living rooms

The lounge is in the centre of the barn with floor to ceiling glass where the old barn door used to be. Plenty of comfy sofas/armchairs, a large wood burning stove and bookcases stacked high with books, puzzles and games when you tire of watching the TV with English satellite. The lounge opens up into the dining room which has a dining table with ample seating for 12, created from a sweatshop work bench.

Quiet clean Spacious. Lovely shower and master bedroom. Beautiful kitchen and dining area. Great location for a rural setting. Easy drive to the forests near domfront and the Mont st Michael on the coast, apart from food and drink everything you need is at the barn. Very enjoyable and relaxing.

orne/basse normandie

gîte sans doute très agréable l'été, bien agencé, bien équipé

  • 2 of 5

un énorme manque au niveau de l'accueil, pas de chauffage pendant trois jours en plein hiver,

problème dû vraisemblablement à la négligence des personnes chargées en France du suivi de la location ; pas d'état des lieux ; une somme retenue sur la caution supplémentaire versée pour la présence d'un chien, sans explication, et alors qu'il n'y a eu aucune dégradation ; donc appréciation très mitigée.
