We are about 1.5 hrs from the Normandy beaches etc with a fair bit of culture i.e. Mont st Michel and St Malo etc. Lovely chateau at Fougeres.
If you are interested in WW2 then there are lots of places to visit.
We have rather a lot of garden and upkeep of the property. So gardening, fencing and general handy help required...if you are into rebuilding classic cars even better.. we also have another house nearby that we let out so help with that would be much appreciated.
