Step outside the back door around midday to see storks circle overhead. Step outside the back door at various times of year to catch a glimpse of the red squirrel in the Walnut tree. Step outside the back door as dusk is falling and listen to the countryside fall into slumber. Step outside the back door, walk to the flower bed to see an abundance of butterflies and other buzzy things. Step outside the back door during the summer and decide whether you want to pick a fig, a plum or a pear. Step outside the back door and just relax. (If you're a teacher, relish the antidote to Ofsted and Mr Gove.)
OK, you can also step outside the front door: admire the French dedication to preparing and tending an allotment; listen to the trees in the breeze; buy a loaf of French bread from the bread lady; award yourself points if you count more than 3 cars an hour going past the front door; watch the aerial acrobatics of swifts in the lane; say hello to the occasional passer-by. Relax.
This holiday home is the right distance south to benefit from a micro-climate that records France's second best sunshine figures after the Riviera. But, it's only a 3hr 20min drive from the port of St Malo. Have a buffet breakfast on a Brittany Ferries ferry and drive off in France at around 8.00am. You can be at the house by midday, having a cup of tea on the patio. From Caen, also via Brittany Ferries, it's about a 4hr 40min drive.
The property nestles in countryside, yet is only 30 minutes from a 7.2kilometers stretch of magnificent, golden, sandy beaches – perfect in the summer for family days out at the beach; even better for glorious, bracing, rejuvenating walks at Easter and early spring and then in the autumn. Best of all – winter sunsets on the beach followed by a hot chocolate (there are places where the hot chocolate is hot) in a bar.
