“Our time at Le Manoir du Bocage”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2015

We booked the Manoir for 1 week. Gites de France were very efficient and the owner was very helpful and replied promptly by e-mail when I had some questions. It can be difficult to find but thanks to previous entries on trip advisor and a look at google earth we found it without a hitch. It is worth putting your sat nav to 1/2 mile setting and "le bocage" appears on the map. Madame Annie Chaumont was very helpful. She was available if needed but did not bother us for the week. She recommended the local market day on Monday in St Piere sur dives which was well worth it. She also recommended a local vet in Orbec so we could book our dog in for his return pet passport to be stamped after worming. Be warned the vet is in the centre of Orbec next to the DIA supermarket but the sat nav will take you to an out of town industrial estate with the same name! The Manoir is a beautiful house with amazing oriental furniture, beautiful paintings and African works. It is full of character. It is very quiet there which was exactly what we wanted. Yet it is easy to get to Honfleur , Deauville or Lisieux for example. It is a lived in house so if you are looking for boutique style accommodation it is not for you. However if you enjoy a genuine 17th century manoir with all the character of that then you will love it. We certainly did. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are beautiful. There is a bbq outside and patio furniture and parasols. We would happily return there again.

Thank you for your your constructive comments which help us to improve the quality of the service we offering for more than 8 years now . we hope to see you again , maybe on a different season . Best .

“Beautiful house and grounds”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2014

The house sleeps 10 comfortably. We last stayed here in 2007 and little had changed. The character of the property is lovely and we were amazed that it offered more than we expected, English TV on a large TV in the front room and TVs in all bedrooms. There is a completely separate wing for those members of the family that drive you mad!!! The real fire in the front room is amazing ( extra charges for wood), although the house is centrally heated - the atmosphere is gives is worth it. The main bedroom has a four poster bed with a jacuzzi en suite bathroom which is fantastic! Each main bedroom has an en-suite for privacy. My husband loves fishing - the lake in the garden has one fish that he found- it was a little limp but he managed to get it to swim away (it definitely didn't have enough life in it to eat the maggots he bought). Annie who looks after the property is lovely, although lacks a vast amount of English - just enough to get by, and she leaves you completely alone unless you ring her. One word of warning - the property is worth the rental but you have to give 600 euros as a deposit - fair enough - but there is additional costs of 202 euros for heating - approx 50 euros for wood and 80 euros for cleaning - so don't expect all of you deposit back. The supermarket we would recommend is in Liseux - about a 20 min drive away it has everything you could possibly need. Honfleur is a beautiful little seaside town with a vast amount of restaurants and shops to choose from. St Julienne golf course which is near Honfleur is well worth a visit for the golfers.

Thank you for comments and staying by us . About extra charges : they are clearly showing on websites where property is advertised . Charges are for electricity and heating and don t apply only in july and august. Wood : you will be charged according your consumption Cleaning on departure : euro 87 , is optional as you welcome not to take it but will have to leave property like you found it . We always try to make additional costs clear when we quote you or answer enquiries , as we believe that misunderstandings or "cheating " clients would be bad behaviour from us . We love our home , and want to stay proud to open it to people visiting us from all over the world

“A holiday location with the 'Wow factor'.”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

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.

Thank you for your comments and want to say that we do not hire bicycles any more, unfortunately certain websites carry on giving old non relevant information . Unfortunately yes we have to invoice our customers for wood used as we pay for wood our self to get it cut and delivered . Best .

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

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

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 . Cordialement

“Full of character”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

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 !

“A wonderfully relaxing stay”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

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 .
