Le Bois Des Monts

Le Bois des Monts offers an idyllic rural holiday for all the family. Set in woodland with extensive views over the plain towards Caen the property offers plenty of space to run around with a superb indoor pool which can be opened up in sunny weather. Watch the horses in the paddock or watch the children play basketball on the terrace whilst relaxing with a drink.

Le Bois des Monts is an important historic building which served as the British headquarters from 6th June 1944 for about a month as they fought to secure the eastern flank of the D-Day landings. A small secure building in the grounds houses artefacts found on the property from this period and the annexe still contains names of the wounded chalked on the walls. The house is an excellent base for exploring the D-Day beaches and other WWII related exhibits...

This is an excellent family home with 5 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and dining room, all separate and spread over a large extended property. The large heated swimming pool in the new annexe is an absolute boon particularly when the weather is poor and was greatly enjoyed by the children. The view south is beautiful and deer were seen running through...

When visiting the Calvados area with friends and maybe youngsters, this is the ideal central place to stay to explore the area and landing sites. The house is in a quiet forest, with loads of external space and the excellent heated indoor pool. All amenities are available in the house and even if Breville does not have any shops, Sonville...
