Barenton - an attractive country town

Barenton is an attractive and tranquil country town that lies in the pretty Manche department of Lower Normandy. With numerous attractions nearby and peaceful, rural surroundings, Barenton would be a lovely spot for a holiday home or for full-time living.

Amenities on offer

The overwhelming atmosphere of Barenton is one of rural tranquillity, but the town does have some useful amenities. Here you can find local shops for everyday essentials, a supermarket, banks, cafés and more. Within just a short drive are the larger towns of Domfront (quaint and mediaeval) and Mortain, offering greater access to larger shops and services.

Visit the island town of Mont St Michel

The town may be quiet, but don't be fooled into thinking that there is little to do in the area. In fact, there are so many fascinating places to visit and so many activities to get involved in that you will hardly be able to make the choice as to what to do first. One of France's premier attractions, the awe-inspiring island town of Mont St Michel, is a must see, and is within a very short distance of Barenton. The mediaeval town of Domfront, just a few kilometres from the town, is another not to be missed.

Explore the coast and Mortain's gorges and waterfalls

Add to these the fabulous coast and resorts such as Granville and you will realise just what a fantastic area this is, whether you are on holiday or looking to settle down. Close by too is Mortain, where the gorges and waterfalls are legendary.

A plethora of outdoor activities to enjoy

When it comes to leisure activities you also find yourself quite spoiled for choice. Close to the town you can swim, sail, fish, walk, ride horses or cycle, play tennis or golf, or try something different like windsurfing or sand yachting. There are the lakes, rivers, the sea and the beaches to enjoy here, so get out there and discover the Manche and all it has to offer.

How to get there

You can travel by air to the Breton airports of Dinard or Rennes. Dinard is served by Ryanair and Aurigny, and Rennes by Flybe. But probably a better way to travel is by boat to St Malo, Caen, Cherbourg or Le Havre. If driving, the town can be accessed via a variety of roads, with the nearest major road being the A84 auto route.

Property prices and availability in and around Barenton

The Manche is gaining in popularity as a destination for second home buyers and Brits seeking a permanent new home across the channel, as it is easily accessed from the UK and property prices are often surprisingly low. Currently (January 2012) on market in Barenton are some wonderful farmhouses for sale, starting at 160,000 Euros.
