We would like to invite you to our beautifully restored 300 year old six bedroom Farmhouse & Gables to sleep up to 13 people.

The space

The 5 bedroom 300 year old Farmhouse and one bedroom Gite are set in a small hamlet 2.5km from the market town of Carrouges in the Normandy Orne region. The property is situated amidst beautiful rolling countryside offering a total get away from it all holiday, sleeping up to 13 people. Offering the typical traditional charm & character of the region with contemporary, comfortable living. Setting our beautiful property apart, is the fabulous outdoor heated swimming pool (10m x 5m x 1.5m) which will be open between May to September. For History enthusiasts there are plenty of tourist sites to visit; the D-Day landings are just under an hour away by car in Caen with the Bayeux tapestry the same distance again. Within 20 minutes, is the renowned Falaise Pocket Museum and the Château Guillaume- the-Conqueror, the birth place of William the Conqueror. For motor enthusiasts the circuit of Le Mans is just 50 minutes away. The motor museum is an absolute must to see and when there is no racing on, why not take a drive down the Mulsanne Straight. For horse lovers the Le Pin National Stud is just 35 minutes away, offering guided tours of the stud and unmissable events throughout the year. If it's exercise that you want there are numerous places to walk in the surrounding picturesque countryside and it has great safe cycling roads for those wishing to go further afield; the Tour de France came past our road on it's way through to Carrouges in 2015. These are just a few examples of what there is to do in our region with lots, lots more to see and do. For more information please search our own website, La Drutiere Farmhouse.

Guest access

Access to all areas of both houses is available to our guests, making it the perfect place for groups of friends or families to come and stay. There are descriptions of the houses and grounds on our main website which will help you with an overall view of the properties.

We do live on site and therefore will be available to offer recommendations and support throughout your stay if required. There is also a welcome brochure left in the house, that explains how everything works and details of the many activities and places to see within a short drive of the house.

Other things to note

There are some fairly large steps and steep stairs in the Farmhouse; please contact the owner for further details if you are unsure whether the property will be suitable for your stay. Guests are responsible for their own safety around the pool, fires, and house.

Pip & Gary were the best hosts ever. They welcomed us in the warmest way and showed us around the property. They answered all of our questions and really helped throughout our stay! I couldn't have imagined a better better way to spend the week-end in the countryside of Normandie! I highly recommend their farmhouse because I'm sure everyone would love it at the point of wanting to come back as soon as possible! Thank you Pip & Gary! Bless you ane see you :) Best regards, Zakaria.
