“Fantastic facilities”

A beautiful cottage in an idyllic cottage. Our young family loved the pool, hot tub, tennis court, boating lake and loads of room to play. We will visit again.

“The ultimate rural family retreat... we didn't want to leave”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Lovely traditional Normandy gite with good facilities. Set amongst stunning scenery. Our two young boys enjoyed the swimming pool, tennis court, fishing and playing with their remote control speed boats on the little lake. We loved the hot tub and general relaxing atmosphere. Watching a family of Kingfishers diving to catch fish on the lake was amazing too. Great welcome from Tony and Pat. We shall definitely return.

“Excellent gite”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is our second visit to Les Patis and we will be back next year!! A fabulous gite, clean and well presented with good quality fittings and wonderful surroundings. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and the hosts Pat and Tony welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Didn't want to leave.

“France at its best in lovely cosy accommodation”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent week at Les Patis in June. We have never been to Normandy, usually going to the Loire Valley.

The gite was very comfortable, and one of the best equipped places we have stayed in. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Fishing was good and the grounds were beautiful to spend time in.

Will be back next year, when we hope it will be warm enough to swim in the pool.

“Wonderful for families with young children”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a week at Les Bambous and we had the greatest time!

The kids (boys aged 7 and 3) enjoyed feeding the fish, running around in the large garden and just having a great time.

Pat and Tony could even provide a bicycle for our oldest - what a joy! Pat and Tony are the most kind and welcoming hosts - always ready to chit chat even when they were working really hard to trim the place (Les Patis).

The pool area is very beautiful with flowers and sun beds. Unfortunately we didn't have the warmest weather, but the time spent in the pool was awesome

We went to Omaha Beach wich is recommendable. The Tiger Tank near the house is a must.
We also went to the zoo/safari park near Lisieux (45 min drive). With kids it is an awesome experience - they let you feed the giraffes!

We certainly recommend Les Patis and Les Bambous. We are sure to come back some time!

“Les Patis - lovely base in a beautiful region of Normandy”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our holiday at Les Patis in gite Les Bambus with our adult daughter and her partner in mid-July was both relaxing and historic. Our property was spacious with a lovely large main sitting, dining, kitchen room where we all came together each evening to eat. Having both a bathroom and an ensuite was perfect. Eating breakfast whilst watching the lake for the jumping fish, heron and kingfishers was idyllic. The facilities kept us all entertained - tennis, ping-pong, rowing and cycling but the hot tub was the main draw for the twentysomethings! A beautiful pool area framed by the extensive garden and pressoir was our favourite spot. We ventured into the local area and were surprised by the WWII history literally on the doorstep. The amazing location of the museum in Mont Ormel meant we could all empathise with the terrible realities and consequences of the battle in the Falaise Pocket. We journeyed further afield to Bayeux which took a little longer than we had anticipated but it is a stunning town and the tapestry is a must. This was followed by a visit to Arromanches to appreciate the scale and ingenuity of the Mulberry harbours. Vimoutiers itself is a compact town with excellent boulangerie and supermarkets. However, a big thank you to Tony and Pat for being such relaxed and welcoming hosts. Having only taken over Les Patis relatively recently, they are working wonders - no hidden 'extras' and Jess the dog is just gorgeous. Hope to be back again,
