"An enchanting place."

The Manoir du Bocage is a little piece of Heaven. Beautifully restored, in perfect taste, it provided our family with a wonderful and memorable holiday experience. Aged from 67 to 2 years old, the m… More

"A holiday location with the 'Wow factor'."

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Manoir du Bocage in the Calvados region of Normandy. Although our extended family was made up of 8 adults, two teenagers and a baby, the manior provided plenty of room for us all to live in comfort.
The manior has excellent facilities, is beautifully decorated and has extensive grounds. It is tucked away down a small lane a short drive from the nearest village which makes for a peaceful break.
It was a bonus that the 'Roger Groult' Calvados distillery was just a 15 minute walk from the Manoir providing a very interesting tour of the distillery with a tasting at the end.
The owner Philippe and Annie the caretaker are a pleasure to deal with.
We could not fault the Manoir but have two small criticism's of the holiday package.
One of the web sites quoted that the Manoir had bikes but with no reference to them being hire bikes (50 euros per week).
Also, when we stayed at the Manoir the weather became cooler, especially in the evening. We asked how we start the heating system at night and were told that it could only be activated when the temperature went below a cerrtain level.
We lit a fire on a couple of cold evenings and were charged 10 euros at the end of our stay for the firewood. We just thought this was a bit 'penny pinching'.
We would also like to suggest that it would be helpful to have the Manoir's name somewhere near the gates to help future visitors know they have reached their destination.
Thank you for a great stay.

"Manoir du Bocage delivered exactly the Calvados countryside experience we were hoping for!"

The home and grounds were idyllic, historic, very well-kept. All the bedrooms were attractive, each with their own features - comfortable bedding for everyone. We traveled as a family of 8 that included adult children, a teenager and an infant. Annie, the manager, was extremely helpful, always available for our needs.

We are very happy you enjoyed our home and found Annie , our house keeper helpfull ( I know we had an unexpected technicall issue when you stayed by us , and that you ve been very helpfull as well ) Thank you so much for your positive attitude and for staying by us .

"Full of character"

Lovely old French manor house with huge gardens. Had a great week staying in this rustic house. If mod cons are your thing not the house for you. If an authentic stay in a French manor is what you are looking for this is the place to come. Amazing fireplace in living room. Close to Cerza zoo and honfleur/ Deaville which were all great trips. Look out for the rain in Normandy in May we had quite a lot!

We are glad you enjoyed our 17th century Manor House !

"Gorgeous Traditional Manor House"

I've stayed at Manoir du Bocage twice and have had a very enjoyable stay on both occasions. The home is peaceful and secluded, has been faithfully restored by its owners and it is wonderfully dec… More

Saint Cyr du Ronceray shops offers all what you need and are great because they only 1km from us and you can have a pleasant by walking to them . Fervaques shops also offer all what you need even a pharmacy , but you need a car to go there .
TAKE CARE with french trading hours !!! french shops are close for lunch and " SIESTE TIME " , WHICH MEANS no shopping possible betwwen 1pm to 3pm . On mondays most of shops are close in France !

"A wonderfully relaxing stay"

If you like what I do then this place is as good as it gets. Toyal privacy, peace and quiet with only birdsong and the occassional eee awing donkey in the distance to bother you. The Manoir has been sympathetically restored to the highest original standard and sits in a stunning setting surrounded by acres of woodland. And a lovely lilly filled lake that would make Monet proud with a heron, frogs, water voles and numerous other forms of aqatic life. Sit and watch all of this wonderment with a glass of chilled local cider in a deck chair provided by the very attentive owner Phillipe. Le Manoir du Bocage is a gem and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We do thank you for your comments and are glad you enjoyed our home , garden, pond , orchards , private woods and surrounding , all totally dedicated to nature and peace lovers .

"Even better in real life"

When my husband showed me the website for this rental, I was very skeptical. It really seemed too good to be true. After spending a week at this house, I can say that it was even prettier in real lif… More
