              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: After 10 years together we eventually married on New Years Eve 2003. As we had sold our schools equipment mail order business we travelled the world on many different types of holiday. Eventually, in 2007, we arrived in the Calvados Region of Normandy near a delightful market town of Vire. We were so struck by the area that we spent a day of the holiday with real estate agents! La Pelviniere is a 300 year old, stone, thatched cottage that was in need a a little TLC!! We spent the next 18 months completely renovating it to a very high standard to highlight the original wood and stone features whilst ensuring that it benefited from all modern fixtures, furnishing and comforts demanded by todays travellers. We hope you like it. Stephen & Eileen Plummer, Ashby, Leicestershire, England

              Why the Owner Chose Vire:
              On our first visit to the area we were struck by the quiet, unhurried and calm atmosphere and were overwhemed by the friendly welcome we got from the French. This area was badly affected in World War 2 and there is still a deep affection for the Allied forces for the liberation and the sacrifices they made. The region boasts a wealth of fine restaurants, mostly family run, where the food is prepared from first principles at very reasonable prices. If you want to leave behind the stresses of modern day living for a quiet and peaceful location then this is the place for you. Within 5 miles the market town of Vire offers all facilities with every shop you could possibly need and a bustling market each week. For more local involvement the village of Champ du Boult is only 1 mile from the cottage and there you can get fresh bread and cakes baked on the premises or have a drink at the local bar. This is why we chose the property!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The location is ideally placed(3 miles) near a lake(fishing)and a superb 18 hole golf course.The countryside is ideal for walking. Our friendly French neighbours run a small farm and the fresh eggs are to die for! The Housekeeper lives nearby and is English so language is not a problem and she is happy to answer any queries you may have.
