Description of Maison Hibou Gite :Sleeps 2. 1 bedroom cottage. Restored 250 year-old cottage set in the peaceful Normandy countryside of the Perche National Park. One large bedroom with lovely views over apple orchards and meadows. The Perche is one of France’s best-kept secrets - an unspoilt region, dotted with small villages, forests, farms and manors. Within 15 km are the country towns of Mortagne-au-Perche and Mamers, both with weekly markets, and the historic villages of La Perrière and Bellême.
Maison Hibou dates back to the end of the French Revolution, and is set in a small hamlet 2km from the village of Pervenchères. The cottage has a light, spacious interior with original features such as thick exposed stone walls, original beams and some solid furniture, reflecting traditional rustic style. Maison Hibou has its own private drive, parking area and garden, and is a quiet and relaxing holiday home, located 20 minutes from Alençon, one hour from Le Mans and Chartres, and two hours from Paris. The local village of Pervenchères is 2km away, and has a small shop/bar/café. Local specialities include cider, calvados, black pudding (boudin noir), and Camembert. This is a great area for walking, cycling, horse-riding, golf and fishing with wonderful scenery, forest tracks and a network of ‘randonées’ to enjoy.
The spacious beamed sitting room has a large open fireplace, 2 comfortable chairs and a day bed. The dining table looks out over the neighbouring orchard. Storage heater.
