"This was without doubt the best week my family and I have spent in France. The property is beautifully restored and fitted out with modern, fully-working equipment. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable and the kitchen appliances all worked perfectly, which in our experience is not a given.The pool was simply glorious; always heated to the perfect temperature to complement the weather. We were very lucky to have a predominantly sunny week (and one terrific thunderstorm) and in such conditions this was the ideal property, with the interior remaining reasonably cool despite the lack of air conditioning. We had noted the lack of fans and duly brought our own.Guests need to be aware of what is not provided. As well as fans, there were absolutely no condiments of any kind. In our experience it is unusual not to have a bit of salt, pepper or oil for cooking, often left behind by previous guests, but it is as if everything had been swept clean and we started from scratch. Once a good grocery shop had been done at the excellent Intermarche in Lisieux (the L'Eclerc is bigger and better, but further away) we were fine.The only real negative, which other visitors have noted, are the additional charges. I was prepared for the cost of bedding (10 Euros per person), and that we would need to pay for the property to be cleaned at the end of the holiday. This is always disproportionately expensive but we simply refuse to spend our last day cleaning. 60 Euros was perhaps a little steep however, as we didn't leave the place untidy.The one that really floored me was the electricity, gas and water charge, which I was presented with on our final evening. This came to over 60 Euros and I simply do not have the French to debate the point, so glumly handed it over.As I say, this is the only real negative and should not detract from an excellent holiday. Other visitors have noted the lack of wifi, which is well documented and should not therefore come as a surprise (my children actually read books!), and the remote location, which can be seen on a map and should also therefore not startle anyone. It is not overlooked or even close to many other properties, and to my mind that is perfect.Thank you Johann for a fabulous week, from which we were really sad to return home. My only real suggestions would be to include the utility charges in the overall cost so as to not leave a sour taste at the end of the holiday (you'll know the average costs by now), and maybe add salt and pepper cellers in the kitchen!"

"Fifteen friends shared this magnificent home while attending the World Equestrian Games in Caen. My commitment is to return to fully enjoy this Chateau without the distraction of dressage. The photos and information provided are all very accurate. Arnaud the owner was very available and helpful to deal with during the booking and provided excellent information regarding the locale and guides (for a DDay tour). The residence itself is jaw-dropping. Once the front gates open you immediately realise that you've made an excellent choice. The housekeeper Francoise was a smiling face there to welcome you. There are ample areas for entertaining, both inside and out and a spectacular dining room. All the bedrooms are ensuited and very comfortable. Several are imposing to say the least. A couple of the bedrooms are relatively small (relative to the size of the chateau rather than the size of a typical European hotel room), but the communal areas are so numerous that it was very easy to find a quiet place to relax. The pool was well heated and the bikes were well used for morning rides to the local village. The grounds were exceptional - a twilight wander over the grass or through the trees with a glass in hand was a fantastic way to end the day. The kitchen was well equipped; however thankfully we didn't really need to avail ourselves of this because of the wonderful Gwenaelle, the cook. After the week we were working on ways of taking Gwenaelle with us! After a day touring or at the dressage, to arrive 'home' at 7pm and have Gwenaelle preparing a wonderful repast in the kitchen was for many of us a highlight. Excellent food that we were more than happy to consume every night. I will certainly be returning, probably next time with my extended family. Whilst this fabulous chateau is full of history and antiques, it is so very livable and felt very much like a home for all of us. For someone who travels frequently and widely, this was on of the best week's holiday I've had. And largely made that way because of the Chateau and it's staff."

"The character of this cottage is all outside, inside was functional but bland, a few home touches would have been nice. We didn't realise the ground floor bedroom would be separate from the bathroom and toilet which was a small issue for my disabled mother but still a problem at 3am, but perhaps this was our fault for not reading the description properly. The pool was lovely but when we had an issue, the owner unfortunately did not respond to our text message (sent in French). The nearest boulongerie was a 10 minute drive, not far but it was often shut, there were no other shops in this small village so we often had to drive 20 minutes just to buy the basics. The biggest issue for us was the separate charge for electricity which we thought excessive. We were really careful not to use the electric oven, dishwasher and washing machine too often and in fact only used the oven 3 times, dishwasher 4 times and washing machine twice. Despite this we were charged the full deposit of £140 which I find extremely expensive for a two week stay for just 3 people. The best bit about this cottage is the pool and grounds, it would be great for a family who just want to spend most of their time outside and not worry too much about sightseeing. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Le Pre Du Bois, which was helped greatly by hot weather, however, because of the above observations we would not return."

"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality to the Defense Attach Office during this past D-Day week here in Normandy. Everyone enjoyed the experience immensely and will remember the visit for the rest of their lives. To those other Americans considering leasing some sort of chateau or staying at a B&B for an experience in Normandy, I can strongly recommend the Chateau as an unforgettable experience that is absolutely enjoyable. Arnaud and Berengere are as kind and honest as one could ever expect to encounter. The others that work at the chateau are also just top notch personnel - very helpful, kind, and considerate; they represent the very best of the French people. The chateau is in impeccable shape and offers many amenities for everyone to enjoy; it's a great place for a group to have a wonderful experience. It is a fascinating place full of history that will certainly inspire even the novice historian buff. Everyone that I know that has stayed here has absolutely loved the place. If you are considering the Chateau as a possible visit location in Normandy, I can strongly recommend the place; you can't beat it!"

"We stayed two weeks at the Chateau des Reves, with invited friends and family. It was a splendid time. The house itself, while large, is not overwhelming, but is cozy, charming and comfortable. The 4 reception rooms and well maintained, spacious grounds provided everyone of us with areas to congregate and also be to be private. Everyone has asked us the central question posed to those who rented a country house in France: how were the bathrooms? Here, they were excellent, newly tiled with first rate fittings and strong water pressure; each was en suite with the 8/9 bedrooms. The kitchen was also well equipped with an Aga type oven/stove. One of the joys of northern France is the endless summer daylights; the sun set in July about 10:45 p.m. Our guests and family would go to play tennis or swim at 9 p.m. and we would sit down to dinner at 12 a.m, being unwilling to shorten the glorious days. Also, there were no mosquitoes and windows could be open at night. Needless to day, we have recommended rental of Chateau des Reves to our friends and acquaintances and will most probably return in 2016,"
