“A Great Stay. ”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed at Le Bois Ellier from 25 August until 5 September 2016. I received a great welcome. The owners are really good and really care about the Guests. The Gite is always kept well equipped and clean and tidy. The owners will always help you with anything you will need. They help you to settle in on arrival and the provide you with breakfast on the bed and breakfast option. I would recommend a stay at Le Bois Ellier if you are planning a holiday to Normandy France.

“Great holiday in Le Bois Ellier”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our 1 week stay at Lynne & Keith's gite. The owners, Lynne & Keith were so kind, available and helpful. Their dog Monty was adorable. Our dog Merlin loved to play with Monty. The cottage was clean and well equipped. It is an ideal place for a couple with a pet or a child.
Nous sommes très contents de notre séjour chez Lynne & Keith. Ils sont si gentils, disponibles et serviables. L'endroit est idéal pour visiter Domfront, Grandville, Mont Saint Michel...

“An oasis of peace!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Absolutely amazing! The place is fantastic for spending a peaceful and relaxed holiday. You cannot ask for more. The area is of an outstanding natural beauty, the gite is quiet and very clean with everything that you need, should you wish to cook for yourself.
The owners, Lynne and Keith are very friendly and accommodating, always happy to help and make your stay as easy as possible.
I would definitely recommend their place to friends and family.

“Exactly what we hoped it would be... Peaceful, private and enjoyable.”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A friend and I stayed for one night in Lynne and Keith's gite while on a cycle tour of Normandy.

The gite was basic but exactly as described and exactly as wished for. We arrived to a very pleasant welcome and a cup of tea. Then, after a short tour of the accommodation, we were left to relax, refresh and enjoy the idyllic surroundings. A very quiet and peaceful location.

The gite facilities were great; good shower and nice bathroom to refresh in. The kitchen area was well equipped and would have been fine to cook a full meal in but we only used the kettle. We opted to enjoy Lynne and Keith's company with an evening meal cooked by them in the farmhouse. It was a superb meal that was wholly satisfying after a day in the saddle.

After a good rest we had breakfast in the farmhouse, we were offered it in the gite if we wanted which was a nice choice to have. Breakfast was basic, but again as expected and there was plenty of food to prepare us for the day ahead.

We cycled down to Lonlay the next day on our planned route but did not spend much time there at all. It did look very pretty from what we saw.

Overall we felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay with Lynne and Keith at their gite. I would like to stay again, but for longer, using the gite as a base for day trips and then returning in the evening to enjoy a bbq (on the private patio) and a beer in the sun.

Thank you so much for this lovely review. We enjoyed your company too and Monty looked for Bossa for days. I made potato salad for some friends and they loved it but it didn't taste as good as yours!
