Bed and Breakfast | Chambres d'hôtes L'Epicerie du Pape is located, in the charming village of Vascoeuil in Normandy, Northern France. Housed in a former country house the B&B consists of two rooms, a tent lodge and a cozy cabin with Nordic style in the back of the garden. L'Epicerie du Pape is full of brocante details which are carefully sourced by the owners Karine and François. It is all about esthetics. We stayed for three nights and had an absolute wonderful time.
Address: 5 Rue de la Ferme, 27910 Vascœuil, Normandy, France
There are two rooms in the house and with all the brocante details it makes it an attractive place to stay. Le chambre ‘‘la pêche du pape’’ is on the 1st floor of the house with a separate entrance for two people with a large bed and shower.
We stayed in le chambre ‘le repos de la mule’’ a room on the ground floor of the house which is available for three people. The room temperature is surprisingly cold and keeps the heat nicely outside. The wooden beams and stone floor bring a lot of atmosphere to the room. We booked the room for the real eye-catcher, the claw-foot tub, for a little bit of me-time in the morning.
After a good night of sleep, breakfast is ready for you. And what a treat it is!
Cabin | Tiny House du Pape
Inside the Cabin | Tiny House du Pape, in the back of the garden, you imagine yourself in Scandinavia with a wooden interior lots and light tones. The cabin sleeps two people and you'll have your own bathroom facilities. It all boosts a super comfortable Nordic spirit. And if you have little ones they can stay in the adjacent retro caravan.
Also the tent lodge is quite cool. It is the perfect stay for 2 adults and 2 children, as the tent fits a large bed and two military camp beds. Even inside you'll find more brocante details, there is a wood stove for chilled evenings and there is a private sanitary facility in the garden a few meters from the tent. Handy.
