We had a large family holiday here in July 2011 and have booked again for 2012.
The grounds are extensive and delightful with many mature trees of differet varieties with a running stream, ponds and an atmospheric fishing lake.
The accommodation is comfortable and pleasant without being fussy or precious. There is plenty of room for large groups to eat and play games etc in Les Frenes.
The owner is very nice and was extremely helpful during our stay. It is easy to shop in Vimoutiers, which is comfortably walkable.
All the children and many of the adults enjoyed fishing in the lake and lots of tennis, table-tennis (outdoor and bring your own bats & balls), and badminton (bring your own net etc but there is the space and it's sheltered) was played. The pool is beautifully positioned in a suntrap but without the sun, the water was cold.
If you are serious tennis players, be warned that the surface is not the best - but it does play a lot better than it looks and (unusually) there is a practice wall.
We made a few expeditions (to Bayeux and Deauville) which were each about an hour away.
