farms for sale in france near valognes

In the midst of the Cotentin peninsula,
a 16th century manor house, once a farm, and its 30 ha of land
Cherbourg-Octeville, MANCHE lower-normandy 50100 FR


Near to Valognes and Normandy’s beaches and less than 3 hours from Paris by car or train, this 16th century manor house, surrounded by bocage countryside and woods, is close to a hamlet on the Cotentin peninsula.


A turning off a little road provides access to a short lane leading to an old, partially damaged, gothic arched porchway, dating from the 11th century.
Said porchway opens on to the main house, spanning approx. 150 m² and exuding a simple elegance. With a total surface area of approx. 1,000 m², a number of outbuildings are laid out around the manor house to form a completely enclosed, central courtyard, spanning more than 2,000 m².
On the south side, the house, with no home comforts, precedes an old pigsty, a storeroom and, backing on to the storeroom and overlooking the garden, a press-house.
Set at right angles on the west side are a barn and an old “charretterie” where carriages were once kept. Then, set at right angles on the north-west side is a row of buildings used as stables and, lastly, set at right angles on the east side, another row of buildings, used for cowshed purposes, extends the farmhouse and the very well-preserved press-house.
Five hectares of land surround these buildings, providing great potential as regards the creation of parklands and gardens.

The main house

The main house, with no home comforts, comprises an old dairy, a small room, a cellar, a kitchen and a large dining room on the ground floor.
The first floor of this house includes four bedrooms, one of which is small, and an attic above.
The old pigsty adjoins the house.
The storerooms and the press-house are on the south side of the house.

The outbuildings

Forming the main courtyard are a row of buildings used as stables with attics above, set at right angles on the south side, the barn and the “charretterie”.

Our opinion

The current buildings dating from the 16th century provide glimpses of the original 11th century construction. Although water and electricity are laid on, they do not have any home comforts and are in need of major renovation works.
There are, nevertheless, some character features, in their original condition, of a farming property over a hundred years old.
The coherence of the buildings, not having undergone any ill-advised modifications, as well as the outstandingly well-preserved architectural features will enable new owners to create an authentic home.
The extra 25 hectares of farmland could be rented on a farm lease, to provide a source of income, or be used for private purposes.
