Le logement

For centuries, La Retraite was used as a barn and as a cider press. My father bought it in the 1980s and it has been my getaway ever since. It is cozy, inviting and complete with all the modern facilities you need. Settled in a bucolic valley in the heart of the Pays D'Auge, La Retraite is a perfect retreat, but also a place to launch a thorough exploration of Normandy's rich history (not to mention cider and cheese!) Enjoy winters by the wood stove or summers on the sunny patio with a view of the countryside.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests are invited to make themselves at home at La Retraite. The caretaker, Paul, is available 24 hours and lives nearby.

Le quartier

La Retraite is located in the Commune of Crouttes, a farming community in the heart of the Pays D'Auge. There are many walks through charming countryside to be taken locally, along the cider routes and cheese routes. With a car you can visit the lovely villages of Camembert, Orbec, and Vimoutiers. The Pay D'Auge is an hours drive from the historic Landing Beaches of D-Day, and the battlefield of the Falaise Gap is just eight miles away.

Don't miss the internationally celebrated Tibetan Monastery at Aubry-le-Panthou, the famous Bayeux Tapestry, and the open air market at St Pierre sur Dives.

The nearby Orne and Dives Rivers offer canoeing and kayaking outfits, and horse lovers will enjoy the many equestrian centres, including the Royal Haras du Pin.


La Retraite is located in the Commune of Crouttes. The nearest shopping center is in Vimoutiers, five miles south. The largest city, Caen, is an hour's drive. Train service is regular from Argentan to Paris and a direct bus route from Argentina to Crouttes. The Pays D'Auge is bicycle friendly.

Autres remarques

While the area is serviced by public transportation, visitors will be most independent with a car or bicycles. There is plenty of private parking within the gate

Séjour très agréable dans une maison bien équipée et en pleine nature. Merci à Paul de nous avoir accueilli et à qui nous n'avons pas eu le temps de dire au revoir. Il nous ait arrivé plus d'une fois de nous perdre en cherchant la maison mais, au bout d'un certain temps, nous connaissions toutes les petites routes menant à La Retraite. Un bel espace de tranquillité ou nous avons eu la sympathique surprise de voir passer les cyclistes du tour Paris-Camembert !

Maison sympathique un peu sombre dans le séjour ! Cheminée agréable. Dommage qu'il n'y ai pas des chaînes de TV françaises.

French Television NOW installed at house so that French people can come and enjoy the house even more. Lighting in sitting room, well it is Normandy and it is renowned for dark interiors, but there are very good side lights and uplighter which help. Anyway Ive asked electrician to put in ceiling lights which should make it sunnier. Cleaning well comments have gone to cleaners to try and get it perfect for people. Last two bookings have found in perfect so I'm trying to get it right for all. hope you come back and see the house again next year!!

Great stay, the house is amazing, the area is peaceful and lovely. A perfect place to disconnect and relax. The house is both charming and functional. Internet works perfectly and there is a line phone in case you can't get network coverage for your cel phone. Jane was very nice, clear and responsive. In brief, everything went perfectly, I would definitely recommend this place.

There are many lovely tiny villages of the Pays D'Auge, but Crouttes, with its hilltop belltower and lovely priory is my favorite. Staying at Jane's house, which has been in her family for thirty years, is a special experience. We have been twice -- both times we slept soundly, enjoyed home-cooked meals in front of the fire, sunbathed happily on the back patio with a bottle of cide,r and took many lovely walks. When the night is clear the stars are dazzling. From Crouttes you can plan a full day's itinerary - the D-Day beaches, the Bayeaux tapestry and old cathedral, the Cote de Fleurie and Honfleur, as well as the distilleries of Calvados. There are also wonderful drives through cider and apple country and all the old villages of this very special region of Normandy. I strongly recommend a four or five day stay at La Retraite any time of year!
