We have a fosse here for our waste. Only toilet paper and human waste can be flushed away, anything else could cause a blockage which would result in costly and extensive maintenance work in the fosse tank.
Hello, my name is Deborah, I'm the owner of the Gites and I live onsite with my husband David and two daughters. We bought the three properties in January 2017, we live in the cream house on the end and the other two are let out as Gites. Although we live onsite we respect our guests privacy but offer the reassurance of being on hand if you need us. We pride ourselves on offering clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation and look forward to welcoming you to Les Gites des Jonquille.

|Why this location?||We wanted to live within walking distance from a small tradition Normandy town but still feel like we are in the countryside. Percy has many amenities, an Intermarche with fuel station which is open 08:30-19:00 Mon to Sat and Sunday mornings. There are many shops including three boulangeries, a fruit and veg shop, two banks, hairdressers, a tabac which serves delicious coffees, and two restaurants. It's so lovely to enjoy a meal and drink in Percy and being able to stroll home afterwards. We are ideally placed in La Manche region, there are many places within an hours drive including Le Mont St Michel, D-Day beaches and museums, west coast beaches and towns, Bayeux Tapestry, Champrepus Zoo, Le Mont Robin, Raptor Park which is the biggest indoor play area in the region, Ange Michel theme park, Le Roc aquarium and museum, and an abundance of towns, St Lô, Coutances, Cherbourg, Avranches. Caen ferry port is 60 mins away and St Malo and Cherbourg are 70 mins.|
|Unique benefits of property||Our Gites are in a great location, walking distance to the town yet set in a location which offers each Gite its own back garden area with BBQ and garden furniture and a large shared play area to the front of the property. There is a fire pit to toast your marshmallows (parental guidance a must!!) and swings, slide, trampoline, football area and a 18 ft above ground pool which opens when the warm weather arrives! The play area is a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst the children run around enjoying themselves. There is ample parking to the side of the Gites, and space to leave bikes etc if you decide to bring them over with you. We are competitively priced as we believe a family holiday should not cost the earth. We pride ourselves on a personal and friendly approach, and are on site to offer any guidance or assistance you may need.|
