Overview

About the property

Le Chateau du Val Hébert was built in 1784, 5 years before the French revolution by the Abbé Hébert, a retired priest of a noble family from Falaise.

It is divided into the in 2 parts, one of which comprises rental accommodation and full enjoyment and privacy of the estate.

The ground floor (80M2) gives a majestic dining hall with 3.50 metre high timbered ceilings and the original and unique Falaise fireplace. A wide, equally tall kitchen with all modern conveniences and equipment lies next door. there is an office and library equiped with WiFi.

The first floor is reached by the original elm staircase and is situated above the hall. It is a very large lounge area (80M2) with all modern conveniences, sofas, armchairs, TV, movie-projector, DVD players (including a sofa bed if required) The 3M windows offer splendid views of the countryside in all seasons, from sunrise to moonrise, it is a pleasure to be there- to enjoy and/or meditate in a quiet atmosphere conducive to peace and well-being, in sunlight, starlight moonlight or mist.

On the same floor a wide high-ceilinged master bedroom (queen bed) looks out onto the garden and has it's own private ensuite bathroom.

Bed and breakfast is an option for the smaller family, in this case one bedroom (2 or 3 persons) and the private breakfast room are included: details on request.

The gardens stretch down to the stream and across the fields and where perfect privacy and quiet can be ensured and enjoyed.

The long summer evenings spent over supper in the gardens are the ideal moments to enjoy the wonderful food and wine for your cuisine found in the local shops and markets.

History is on your doorstep: Falaise, (under 1O miles away) is the birthplace of William the Conqueror, and Caen (under 20 miles away) where his Ducal Castle was built. St Pierre sur Dives is the nearest shopping venue, and boasts a medieval market every Monday morning and an outstanding Basilica which dominates the beautiful countryside and was an ancient place of the Kings of France coronation. Every castle and church in every village in Normandy has its tale to tell.

The sea-side is also near at hand: The Cote de Nacre is famous for its family beaches and the chic Deauville-Trouville for the jet- setters are both under an hour away for those hot summer days when you'd like a swim.

Historically nearer our time, the Normandy Landing beaches, soon to be classed as a UNESCO Heritage site are an hour's drive, as are the famous Mont St Michel, the Bayeux Tapestry, and nearest is the Chateau de Falaise.
