An excellent opportunity to purchase an historic colombage construction former farmhouse and wooden barn with approximately one hectare of pasture. This might be potentially used for camping (subject to consents). A project to finish.

The roof has been renewed, mains drainage, new Velux and staircase, kitchen largely fitted and preparation for division of rooms with stud walling and attractive open colombage. Both electricity and plumbing are connected. The property could make a large 4 bedroom house, or could be readily separated into two/ two bedroom properties to provide a home and potential gite income.

Located on the periphery of Vimoutiers within the the Pay D'Auge region. Semi rural in aspect and located approximately 50 meters down a country lane that leads from an arterial road which makes getting about straightforward. The property is only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Vimoutiers.

This property is probably about 300 years old and is an authentic colombage building (i.e. constructed with visible timberwork) with character and charm, typical of the region. It is a project and could be finalised by a proficient DIY practitioner with some help from local artisans. It would be possible to park a mobile home on the grounds whilst undertaking work. The work could be potentially completed in two stages. Allowing the owner to move in to the property and to then finish the second stage.


Vimoutiers sits pleasantly within some of the finest gentle valleys within the Pays D'Auge. Famous for cider, calvados and cheese. Camembert is within 10 km. Very much a town within a rural aspect, yet within one hour of some of the finest beaches in France. Popular tourist locations like Deauville (Film Festival), Honfleur (Impressionism) and Lisieux (Basilica). Additionally the market towns of Livarot and Gace are within about 20 minutes. The area boasts an enviable history created from the old wealth of agriculture. There are many pretty villages and hamlets to explore. Ancient manors and chateau. The famous Normandy landing beaches, Mont St Michel and the Bayeux Tapestry are all within 1 - 2 hours and provide a good day out for holiday makers. The region offers a restful and traditional way of life.
