LE HAMEL HUBERT is a detached stone house built around 1814 set in the centre of 1.5 hectare plot of land. The house consists of 3 bedrooms and 3 ensuite bathrooms with an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge on the ground floor. The house is just 2 miles from our closest town Percy which is situated on the Route de Liberté (D999) – this is the route in which the Allied Troops took after the D-Day Landing to recapture France from the Germans during the Second World War in 1945.

The surrounding area of the house is peaceful agricultural countryside and in our garden we have sheep and their lambs in season along with chickens and ducks meandering in the garden supplying fresh eggs to guests if required.

There are several villages close by providing French markets on Tuesday (Villedieu-les-Pôeles), Wednesday and Saturdays (Gavray), Saturday (Percy) each offering something different – tours can be arranged if required. We also stock a selection of locally produced organic apple juice and cider from our French neighbour for purchase. Just a short bike ride away (3 miles) is a 13th Century Abbey if you enjoy a bit of exercise!

GARDEN

We have a large garden which you are welcome to wander throughout and pick any seasonal fruit such as raspberries, strawberries, apples, plums and pears. At the side of the Gite is a lovely enclosed garden which contains a hot tub for your use during your stay. Sit back and relax and search the star filled skies to find the Milky Way which runs directly overhead of the Gite. In addition in this section of garden you'll find an outdoor seating area and BBQ for your use.

THINGS TO DO IN NORMANDY

Normandy Landing Beaches – There are a selection of beaches about 1hr away. You'll find all the information you need on each of the beaches in the folder provided in the Gite. There are quite a few museums regarding the Second World War scattered throughout Normandy and we have listed them on a map along with an explanation on what you will discover inside! The D Day landing beaches are beautifully tranquil these days and offer lots of family fun!

Mont St Michel – A UNESCO World Heritage Site very much worth a visit – you can choose to drive directly there or if you are feeling more adventurous you can walk across the sands with a guide – if you prefer somewhere in the middle tours are available from the car park at Mont St Michel – in all cases they normally offer the chance to create a giant trampoline out of sinking sand – an amazing experience!

Bayeux – A fantastic town that not only offers amazing shopping, fabulous restaurants but the historic Bayeux Tapestry with audio guides available at no extra cost in all languages. It is also only about 10 minutes from Arromanche which is one of the British D-Day Landing beaches and hosts my favourite ice cream parlour in Normandy.

Brehal is our closest beach and an easy 25 minute countryside drive away – it hosts an incredible stretch of beach and at certain times throughout the year you have what is known as the “Grandes Marées” where the tide goes out for miles and you can pick up all sorts of shellfish with your bucket and spade and bring it home for tea! It's great fun especially if you have children and best of all its free!

Christian Dior Museum - the birth place of Dior is in Granville – the gardens are remarkable and are free to walk around, the views of the sea from the terrace would let you think you were in St Tropez with their blue azure waters. The museum itself is payable hosting Dior's own collections.

FOOD

Most people visiting France want to experience the food particularly the boulangeries! We have 3 local boulangeries in Percy so the choice is yours! The French tend to eat their main meal of the day at lunchtime and you can find lots of restaurants offering plat du jour (dish of the day) offers. If you prefer to eat-in there are several supermarkets within a short drive and don't forget those French markets offering the best of fresh and local produce within a short distance.

For those wanting to venture into restaurants, there are several nearby which come with recommendations from friends and family that have visited. I am sure that we can steer you in the right direction when we know your requirements.

There is so much to do and see here in Normandy, well, as much or as little as you need.

We hope to welcome you to our Gite in the near future.

The Normandy region

We are a quiet rural setting surrounded by beautiful French countryside and during the summer you will see a lot of maize fields close by. We are about 2 miles from our the town but there is a small village shop about 1 mile away offering all the essentials and a bar / cafe attached.

We offer parking both in front and at the rear of the property. You will need a car to get to the shops and all of the local attractions as public transport is somewhat limited. With regards to local attractions we have an amazing zoo very close by, Mont St Michel, Christian Dior Museum, Beaches, French Markets, D-Day Landing beaches, Bayeux Tapestry, Mardi Gras Carnival, Forest walks, bike routes there is as much or as little as you want to do - we offer an array of information on all of the tourist attractions within Normandy and can even offer tours of the local markets and boulangeries if you would like.

Normandy is on the west coast of France and has a warm climate. Good levels of rain mean that the countryside is green but there are usually more sunny days than cloudy or rainy days. Due to its northern latitude and coastal position the weather does not get to the high temperatures seen elsewhere in France and it can be unpredictable. However occasional days reaching 80 degrees F (27 degrees C) are not unusual in the summer and the winter months are relatively mild.

THINGS TO DO IN NORMANDY

I have published several Kindle books in relation to practical information on moving to France but have created a special book for Holidaying in France as requested from our guests at the Gite it offers places to visit, practical language vocabulary, information on driving, how to work out sizes for clothes, mileage etc, what to do in an emergency - everything you need to know and more here are the most popular places to visit - everywhere is less than 1 hour away and in France you very rarely see a traffic jam!

"One Beautiful Place to Turn 50!"

We recently had the pleasure of spending our 50th birthdays at Sarah & Allan's beautiful Gite in Percy, France. If one must turn 50, then I wholeheartedly suggest you do it at Le Hamel Hubert! The cottage is beautiful and perfectly stocked with everything you need. The 3 bedrooms each have their own bathroom which is a definite plus when traveling with 4 adults. While the cottage is perfect it is the surroundings and hosts that make this Gite the perfect place to stay for any amount of time. You will be surrounded by beautiful rolling Norman hills. Normandy has a way with the color green that is difficult to describe - I am not sure I have ever seen so many variations. We arrived late in the day and Sarah had dinner ready for us to pop in the oven. While always available for assistance, Sarah and Allan have a way of making you feel like the whole place is yours and yours alone. I am not sure I will ever enjoy another strawberry as much as the wild strawberries that Allan picked for us one morning - it is those little touches that truly make a vacation wonderful and memorable. Sarah is available and helpful throughout the whole planning portion of your trip which also makes the trip that much easier. I would stay at Le Hamel Hubert again, and again, and again!
