Les Bambous is set in 17 acres of gardens with heated swimming pool, tennis court, a lake for fishing and some lovely walks in the grounds among rare trees, flowers and birds. There is a Japanese Water Garden, as well as the River Vie flowing at the foot of the property.

Les Bambous was newly converted in 2003 within the lovely yellow stone building overlooking the lake. (Sleeps 5/7). It has a private garden leading down to the stream, and a balcony overlooking the lake. The garden has sun chairs, table and chairs and a barbecue.

The cottage has two comfortable bedrooms, the master bedroom has a double bed and en suite shower room. It has doors opening onto the garden. The second bedroom , a twin, also overlooks the gardens and has a bathroom beside it.

The house sleeps five if required, as the light and spacious open plan landing area has a single bed for occasional use. The main reception room is comfortably furnished , with a family kitchen (with dishwasher and microwave), large farmhouse style table and sitting area. A door at the end of the living room opens out onto the balcony and lake. The balconies are both fitted with safety gates for young children and the cottage is all on one level with the exception of two steps down to the living area.

Les Bambous is nestling in the hills of the Pays dÁuge where the pace of life is slow, long leisurely lunches under a shady tree or in a little restaurant are an integral part of the day. The cheeses of the region are legendary and are named after many of our local towns Livarot, Pont L’Eveque. The village of Camembert is just 2 miles away . The North Coast with its golden sands and elegant seafront promenade is a pleasant drive away.

The Normandy region

Our region is steeped in History and holds delights for all ages and interests. The Normandy Beaches of the historical D Day landings are an easy drive from here. Bayeux with its magnificent hand worked tapestry, majestic Cathedral and many restaurants, is less than an hour away.

Monet's House and Gardens at Giverney , though a little further away, are a memorable way to spend a day. Honfleur , with its charming fishing port, surrounded by first class seafood restaurants, is very close. A delicious lunch followed by a stroll around the art galleries, or a sight of artists painting in the streets is all part of the pleasure.

Experience the hot spa baths of Bagnoles de l'Orne in picturesque Swiss Normandy. Visit Falaise Castle , childhood home of William the Conquerer and the beautiful Chateau of Vendeuvre with landscaped water gardens and the largest collection of miniature furniture in the world.

Vimoutiers

Vimoutiers town is less than one mile away, and has a traditional square with a beautiful church at one end with double spires and vibrant stained glass windows. There is a choice of boulangerie shops with delicious bread, cakes and croissants, as well as a small supermarket and several little restaurants, cafes and shops. There is a large supermarket on the edge of the town.

There are lots of different activities to enjoy all within a short drive from Les Patis. The local horse riding stables has days out on horseback with a picnic, as well as one hour lessons in groups for all skill levels. The nearsest Golf course is at Clecy, about 45 minutes drive and is known as one of the loveliest in the area. There are several Local Markets nearby selling fresh local produce. Cheese and Cider Making are local specialities.

For the more adventurous there is white water Canoeing along the river, another really good day out. There is an apple fair in Vimoutiers in the first week in October each year, when an amazing feat of construction takes place in the town using only apples! Not to be missed! A smart bicycle hire shop is open in the town, its cycles would not look out of place in the Tours de France! Fishing in our own lake will yield large and healthy carp, tench and roach. No licence is needed.

"A wonderful place for a large group or extended family in beautiful mature gardens"

We had a large family holiday here in July 2011 and have booked again for 2012. The grounds are extensive and delightful with many mature trees of differet varieties with a running stream, ponds and a… More

I am so glad you all enjoyed your holiday at our lovely property. Unfortunately we had intermittent problems with the pool thermostat last summer which resulted in the pool being cooler than we would have wished at times. This has now been rectified. We look forward to seeing you all again in August!
