June, a little early for the roses to be in full bloom but the swimming pool is in place! A Plan of Le Petit Bosquet - approx.  110 m sq (1184 sq ft) in total.

“Spacious, safe, relaxed and friendly”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Well what a first taste of France for the Fisher family. An idyllic retreat fully enclosed in the heart of the French Countryside. Extremely Friendly and helpful hosts for whom nothing was a trouble and enjoy sharing their perfect world with their guests.
The place itself is ideal to relax on site or as a staging ground to explore chateaus, vineyards and other delights of the region.
The Gite is incredibly well stocked for all your needs and is extremely comfortable.
The friendliness extends to the local village too- a 1 km walk away, just enough to get an appetite for the bread and pastries delivered to the local cafe!
The children adored the place, the pool and the local cats.
Would definitely return here and fully recommend a stay if you want to explore this region

“Superb spacious and comfortable - highly recommended”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A beautifully renovated and superbly equipped, comfortable and spacious property - much more than just a gite. In a rural location, far from the crowds and traffic (on a "5-car a day" road). Lis and Mike were great hosts, and we enjoyed several drinks with them along with some long chats. We wanted for nothing the whole time we were there and would highly recommend the whole experience. We returned home very relaxed, and looking forward to our next visit.

“Perfect country retreat”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This is our second visit to Le Petit Bosquet and we were not disappointed on our return. The gite is very laid out and is the most comfortable place we have ever visited on our many trips to France. The hosts are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.The village is quite rural,but with a car it is easy to visit the Loire region.In 4 days we managed to go to Amboise, Chenonceau, Saumur and Usse (Sleeping Beauty castle). If you are a walker or cyclist this would be an ideal spot too.
We hope to return before too long as we felt we had the chance to really enjoy some peaceful time here. A gem in the French countryside.

“Peaceful rural retreat!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Le Petit Bosquet for Le Mans Classic (about 40 mins away). The gite, situated in a rural setting, was ideal to drive to several neighbouring towns such as Angers, Tours and Le Mans. It was very peaceful and a great place to relax and unwind with a glass or two of wine. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming whereby we shared a few glasses of wine. There are various gardens in which to sit and are very well kept. This is a lovely and spacious gite!
