If you are seeking a peaceful break...: you may enjoy the fact that 'Trinabelle' is in a quiet French village. The cottage is raised from the road and provides views of the garden, local stone houses and countryside beyond. You could easily leave your car in the garage all week and walk/cycle along the many footpaths or long distance cycle paths. The area is quite hilly and from several viewpoints around the area there are magnificent vistas available. From La Petite Chapelle you can see as far as Mont St Michel on a clear day.
Local bars and restaurants are all within a short stroll of the cottage and the market town of Mortain can be reached via the waterfall walks or on the country lanes and if walking back after dark the high street road is lit all the way back to the cottage.
The rose garden at the front is a great place to relax with the patio bench and table right outside the cottage.
The rear garden is all lawned with a small wooded area.
