We had a great time at this venue. The hosts Kev and Lynda were helpful, but also discreet. It was ideal for our large extended family group of 8 adults and 5 children. They loved the facilities and the games activities.

The location is beautiful. Weather can't always be relied upon in Normandy but there were plenty of wet weather options and the large games room is fantastic. The covered BBQ and fire pit area was a real treat.

The accommodation has some eccentricities but this just added to the charm for us.


I would certainly recommend la Forete to other parties and would like to thank Kev and Lynda for putting themselves out to make our holiday special.

We had a fantastic week, Kev and Linda were so welcoming and kind, and all the facilities were brilliant.
The children loved the pool and the games room, we had some great ping pong matches in the evenings!
Perfect place for a multi generational group and loads to do in the local area.
The website doesn't do it justice, it is much better than it looks on there!
All in all a really good family holiday venue.

I have stayed several times at La foret de glenne and it never dissapoints. We were blessed with beautifull weather for the whole week, so took advantage of the lovely beach at jouliville, (only 50 minutes away)spending all day and into the evening there, some lovely places to eat and have a few drinks.
On site everything was spot on, the rooms are lovely, the gardens beautifull,and the owners are so helpfull, always asking if everything was ok, they really do want you to have a fantastic stay.
Went into Avranches, great shops, nice restaurants, lovely scenery. Also visited Granville, which is another lovely place, well worth a visit, great marina.
Went to the pizza restaurant in the village which was lovely. And had a few barbies on site, loved every minute of my holiday, just wasnt long enough.
