Full Description

This very interesting traditionally built house is thought to be approximately 300 years old and it still has an old, stone pressoir in the garden. This was a machine for extracting the juice from fruit; which in this case would most likely have been apples. Internally the house boasts magnificent beams and the character reflective of the period.

The property rests pleasantly within its own fully enclosed, well stocked and managed grounds. It has an open view to the rear and a feeling of space and quiet without a feeling of isolation. The house is located between Vimoutiers and Trun with access to the coast within about an hour by road and to Paris via SNCF railway stations located at Lisieux and Argentan.

The property offers a very spacious lounge/diner, kitchen, utility room, toilet, three generous bedrooms and a shower room/toilet. Additionally there is a bureau which could provide a fourth bedroom or an additional bathroom. This pretty house would make a generous family home or could provide the potential for a small bed and breakfast business. It is presented in excellent condition and is ready to move into and enjoy.


Crouttes is a village near to Le Renouard and is located between Vimoutiers and Trun. Rural in nature, but not remote from the local town of Vimoutiers 6kms, which boasts all the necessary shops and facilities and Trun 12kms. Both Lisieux and Argentan are a 30 minutes drive and have excellent shopping facilities including the larger supermarkets. Crouttes has a salle des fetes (or village hall) with events organised throughout the year. Le Renouard is also a very active small community with events and a famous local annual tennis tournament which is supported by many nationalities. It has its own Chateau - Vieux Chateau Le Renouard which has a very interesting history. There are many interesting small villages within a superb landscape.. The wonderful Normandy coastal resorts are within about an hour to an hour and a quarter's drive. Houlgate provides a fantastic family day out, with the famous Honfleur and the sophisticated Deauville also easily accessible for a great day's entertainment. The Montormel war memorial is near by and the Tiger tank in Vimoutiers and the coastal D Day beaches remind you of the region's significant recent history. Lots to do and see.
