We stayed here for a week and had the most wonderful time. The house is decorated beautifully and the setting is incredible. Home from home and we will certainly be going again! Le Petit Bois Bon Bon Bon!

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. Le Petit Bois certainly does benefit from a wonderful village setting in the French countryside. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and would love to welcome you back again.

We recently travelled to Le Petit Bois to enjoy a long weekend with friends. The house was so easily accessible from Paris' CDG airport which is a welcome change compared to similar properties I have stayed in. Le Petit Bois felt like our home whilst we stayed there and we enjoyed making use of the great facilities to entertain ourselves...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely comments about your holiday at Le Petit Bois. I'm glad that you discovered the Karting at the Alain Prost Circuit in Le Mans! Great fun! We look forward to welcoming you back to your 'home away from home'.

We tentatively booked Le Petit Bois... I say tentative as I couldn't actually find it on Tripadvisor & therefore (having listened to my father tell me about rogue traders setting up on .com and advertising property that is not there own!) there was a reasonably large part of me that expected to turn up to a locked up building in...

Management response:

Hi Jess. Thank you so much for your kind words about Le Petit Bois. I'm so happy that your family enjoyed the time there, and that you found the house a relaxing retreat. I totally agree with your comments about Le Mans; it's a beautiful medieval city with so many things to do: Such shame that most people just drive...
