A four-star boutique hotel nestled in the heart of the Andaine Forest, Le Manoir du Lys is surrounded by a beautiful natural habitat made up of leafy parkland and French orchards. A member of the Relais du Silence group, the hotel makes for an idyllic destination in the Bagnoles de L’Orne region of Normandy, amid gorgeous natural scenery. Emulating the feel of an authentic hunters’ lodge, it sits on three hectares of private land, completely immersed in the surrounding forest.
The hotel retains many of its period features among the bright color scheme throughout. Each room is individually decorated and features a view of the adjoining orchard. Cool yourself after a game of tennis in the nearby outdoor pool (open June to September), and enjoy leisurely laps in the indoor pool throughout the year. The hotel’s restaurant was awarded a Michelin star for its regional cuisine inspired by local flavors. It goes without saying that Le Manoir du Lys boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
We visited the Manoir with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cosy family run hotel and commitment from all employees to ensure guests are well looked after makes for a more than pleasant experience. We stayed for 2 nights. Our room was very quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed whiling away our time chatting in front of a blazing fire (it’s November). We borrowed bikes to explore the local area. And best of all, we had an amazing culinary experience dining at the chef’s table in the kitchens. The food was just divine. Seasonal produce cooked to perfection in innovative and creative dishes. Definitely recommend.
I was woken at 6am by a delivery lorry outside my room, this a Relais de Silence.
The much advertised beautiful bar area was out of bounds, the area was taken over by a private group. When I talked about these problems with the hotel, there was no understanding, no attempt to remedy the situation. The room was cold, I should have brought this to their attention but little understanding had been extended.
The room was cold.
Had hoped to visit here for ages, eventually went and the whole experience was amazing. We had aperitif in the garden in the forest, accompanied by amuse bouche. Beautiful cep bread and butter, both had a samphire and lobster starter, followed by my duckling and his lamb, he then had the cheese course! We had a pre desert desert, followed by desert, he had the wine pairing and this was followed by coffee and petit fours! Yes it is expensive, but I truly believe that exceptional meals are worth it. The staff are multi lingual, the hotel and restaurant are incredible, I was a bit worried about the sommelier having had bad experiences in the past, but he was wonderful, we asked about his sommelier badge and he explained it all. I will definitely be back for the next special occasion!
