Beautiful settings and scenery, we enjoyed a peaceful and relaxed long weekend and can't wait to go back! Close to restaurants, shops and stunning forests. The house has everything you need and more, comfortable and homely.

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!

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'.
