La Cachette is a detached stone cottage, set in its own private garden with beautiful panaramic views of the beautiful Sienne river valley. Located about 300 metres along a country lane (recently resurfaced) which leads directly to a footpath beside the river, the gite is in the middle of a conservation area renowned for its stunning scenery. A wonderful riverside walk meanders its way to Gavray and many other superb walks are accessible direct from the house. Fishing is available in the river within 200 yards of the gite and the area is teeming with wildlife such as deer, badgers, hare, buzzards, owls, and even the occasional otter. The local town of Gavray, which is just 5 minutes by car, has a supermarket as well as a choice of restaurants, banks, shops etc. A very popular market is held in the town every Saturday morning. The pristine sandy beaches of the west coast are a mere 20 minutes drive away. The port of Granville, the famous 'copper' town of Villedieu les Poeles, and Countance with its Cathedral, are all within 20 minutes or so, and Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and the D-D beaches are all within easy reach
