Family-friendly accessible Gites in Calvados, swimming pool - Larose

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Five properties - 2 bedroomed accessible gite to 6 bedroomed farmhouse

Five beautifully renovated self-catering gites on a 17th Century Normandy farm, Ferme de la Hamberie, in the fertile lower Calvados region including three wheelchair accessible cottages. .

'LA DEMEURE' is a magnificent 17th century farmhouse with 6 en-suite bedrooms and is ideal for family celebrations.

Gite 'LE FOURNIL'(the old bakery) is fully accessible for guests in wheelchairs as is gite 'MARTIN', a farm building and part of the old stable block and probably the oldest building on the farm. Each of these gites has 4 bedrooms.

Gite 'LAROSE' (accessible for disabled people) and gite 'GOULET', each with two bedrooms, share a large old farmhouse.

The gites face a central green in the heart of the farm and each is provided with its own patio, parking area and private garden.

Guests have access to the outdoor solar heated swimming pool which is securely fenced for safety. A renovated 30 metre barn contains an indoor games area, library and many children's games.

Beautiful Calvados: The region abounds in ancient market towns, fetes and festivals, cider and Camembert. There are many places to visit. Arromanches, Omaha beach, and Monet's garden, the Bayeux Tapestry, Mont St Michel, the Memoriale to Peace in Caen, the National Stud, Horse racing in Deauville, the painters in Honfleur, all are favourites among our guests. The countryside is soft and lush leading to the wooded hills and river valleys of the 'Suise Normandie' with its delightful little riverside towns, ideal for a picnic. Falaise itself is the birth place of William the Conqueror with the castle open to the public.

The Road to la Hamberie: The nearest ferry port is Caen (Ouistreham) a 45 minute drive from the farm. It is served by Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth with three arrivals daily and a fast boat from time to time. Le Havre and Cherbourg are approximately 90 minutes and 2 hours drive away. A fast boat runs from Dover to Boulogne leaving a 3 and a half hour drive to the farm. The Dover ferries to Calais and the Channel Tunnel will leave you a 4 hour drive.

Discount fares are available for our customers, please ask for details.

In addition to all the normal provisions, Gite Larose, Gite le Fournil and Gite Martin are accessible for people in wheelchairs and were designed for this purpose. If you have special requirements, including for such things as monkey poles, hoists, electric beds or wheelchairs, we can arrange for these to be hired.

Good suburban lodging

  • 4 of 5

I could confirm that this is family friendly, spacious site. In appatment which I've rented was two bedrooms and one big room with kitchen and with fireplace.

My kids had a lot of fun to play with owner's dogs, which was really friendly.

So, this is really nice staying outside the city, but you need to be properly dressed, and of course you need a car to go there.

Family Party 2009

  • 5 of 5

In August 2009 I organized a family party to celebrate the 70th birthday of our aunt.

Our large family party of 36 booked all five gites for the week. Domaine de la Hamberie proved to be an ideal venue for a family celebration of this kind and everyone had a great time.

The facilities on the site are excellent. The pool is very clean and very well maintained. There are also a huge barn with games for if the weather is not so good. The whole environment feels very safe and secure.

We had a barbecue for the entire family which entailed us moving all the garden furniture and barbecues onto the green in the front of the house. This caused no problems at all for the owners who were more than happy to help with anything we needed.

Gite Larosse was very well equipped and clean.

I would certainly recommend Domaine de la Hamberie to anyone planning this kind of event.

Location

From the Owner

My parents bought this property with their partners in 1989 when it was a working farm with lots of cows. They saw the potential in the property and hoped to created a family holiday destination that would provide a safe environment for young families, large groups and guests with disabilities, of which this area of France had very few at that time. Over many years and tremendous hard work, as well as cajoling countless friends and family members to lend a hand. Some came willingly, others had to be persuaded, but they all enjoyed some unique times here. Now the site offers a huge playbarn for the children, a solar heated pool, and wheelchair accessible accommodation, with enough room to host large groups of more than 50 people.

Each self-catering gite faces the central green of the farm with access to the heated pool and play barn.

La Hamberie is an ancient farm near to Falaise, the historic birthplace of William the Conqueror whose castle dominates the old town. There is a wealth of attractions in the area including local chateaux, Roman & Celtic archeology, Festyland for the children (a mini Alton Towers), the national Stud at Haras du Pin, bungy jumping, tree walking, canoeing, go-karts, golf, swimming, walking, cycling, horse racing and pony treking. During World War 2 Falaise and the region around the farm were the centre of the final battle of Normandy in 1944.

We often host veterans of these battles from the USA, Britain and Canada who come to visit the beaches. The picturesque Suisse Normandie and miles of fine sandy beaches are within 40 minutes drive. Deauville, Honfleur, Bayeux and Mont St Michel are within easy reach. The area is also a shopper's haven especially Trouville and Deauville

Other Activities: canoeing, Chateau, WW2 battlefields, markets.

Golf: Within easy reach of la Hamberie there are at least six good or excellent golf courses. These include Garcelles, Clecy, Omaha Beach and Deauville. Many groups of golfers have combined their stay at la Hamberie with a number of rounds of golf and all have very much enjoyed their stay.

Facilities

From the Owner

The farm is a unique place. It has a rich history from the 14th century which includes it's use as a field hospital during the second world war, The ancient cider press helps form part of our wall garden is beautiful, now home to several goldfish. The pool and playbarn are great facilities that help to make a stay here special. Our local village, Fresne-la-Mere has a bakery and general store that is only a 10 minute walk away. Freshly baked bread in the morning is a great way to start the day. but another aspect is that as we live on site we are here to help make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. We have great experience of things to do in the area from World War 2 memorial sites to Soft play areas for the children. We also offer a sense of security for our guests as my French wife is able to help with any cultural issue that arise, and we always on hand to lend a hand, make a call and if necessary help with medical emergencies.
