Our pool has now been installed - 7.6m x 4.10m a great size for a swim! 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!

We have a large garden of approximately 1.5 hectares 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. The hot tub is inclusive from May to end of August but for all others it is charged at an additional costing of 100 euros per week. In addition in this section of garden you’ll find an outdoor seating area and BBQ for your use.
You will find a bottle of Organic Cider & Apple Juice to welcome you to our Gite upon your arrival.
