Holiday Rental House
Les Epiceas is one of five gites on the Les Patis estate set in eight acres of private gardens. We are located in the heart of the Pays d’Auge, lower Normandy; renowned for its rolling hills, half timbered houses and gentle way of life. The area is also steeped in history and tradition. From the atrocities of WWII, to its famous gastronomic products of cheese and cider, to its many stud farms that surround the area. Les Epiceas is a one bedroom stone cottage that has an attractive patio area that overlooks the garden and swimming pool; perfect for early morning breakfast and/or coffee. The bedroom has a double bed with an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The lounge has a sofa bed that can accommodate two small children or one adult; screens are provided for separation and privacy.

Its the second time we have stayed here, in a lovely rural location. Everything you need is available. And only a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Vimoutiers. Such a lovely setting for a nice stay in Normandie
