Stayed here October half term with 2 teenagers and 3 other adults so we didn't fill the bedrooms. However if we had been a bigger party there still would have been plenty of space. Pool fantastic, teenage boys loved it. House and location full of history and as previous renters we toured all the local D Day landing sites, Pegasus bridge (very moving) and Merville battery. We ate out most evenings and found Merville-Franceville Plage had plenty to offer even though out of season. Carbourg is worth a visit too. We also went to Le Mans (about a 2 hour drive) as husband and son car enthusiasts.
The house was clean, very well equipped and warm.
Valerie was very welcoming and Kevin explained the house's history to us.

When welcoming host Kevin gave directions to the house that ended with, "If you drive past the Highland Piper Memorial then you've gone too far" I knew that I'd booked the right house for a week exploring the sites of the the D-Day landings. The house itself was used by British forces after D-Day and Ranville Cemetery, Pegasus Bridge and the Merville Battery are all within a few minutes easy drive. It is a fantastic location - the website pictures can't really do it justice.

We were two families of four and five and all nine stayed in great comfort with enormous amounts of space in the bedrooms. The beautiful, peaceful woodland gardens (with great views over the countryside towards Caen) were superb for the kids to run around and let off steam. The wonderful indoor pool was also fantastic for the children after a hard day touring the beaches and museums.

The house is very much a family home and a characterful mix of old and new. Quirky in places but none the worse for that. Despite its size, it is very well heated and cosy. We never quite got around to having an open fire in the wood-panelled TV lounge but I'm sure it would be lovely in the winter.

I cannot recommend Les Bois des Monts enough and can only hope that we may be lucky enough to stay there again in the future.

“Perfect Weather, Beautiful Location, Fabulous Food and Unwanted Guests”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The house is in a beautiful location, perfectly suited for a family holiday. It is unfortunate that it was also dirty and infested with fleas. Setting off flea bombs though out the house and evacuating for the day was not quite what we had planned for our family holiday. As a final insult the owner refused to refund our deposit despite her daughter agreeing in writing at the time of checkout that all was in order. Caveat Emptor
