‘Les Haises’ has three good bedrooms, a nice bathroom and a spacious kitchen. There is a living room with a TV/ DVD player which is also very pleasant (if a little more formal than cosy). Everythi… More
Deb,Den and Sophie and the girls !! and Lucky too.Thank you so much for your review.I am pleased that your stay was a pleasant one and you enjoyed the tranquility of Les Haies. My project this winter is to convert the remaining rooms into a large sitting room,additional bathroom and another double bedroom to be able to receive larger groups and make the stay even more comfortable for my guests, I have finally got the Wi Fi sorted in the cottage and even English TV !!
The addition of the Donkeys has made quite an impact especially for the family groups and i will continue to develop the House based on guest feedback. Your company as a family was very much appreciated and I have been very privileged to meet such genuine friends,the memories of your stay and "your hospitality" makes the hard work very much worthwhile ( and the wine was also very enjoyable )
Your review will help others to make decisions on Les Haies with your broad advice on the area and my home and i genuinely hope you will return at some point in the future to allow me to meet you again. Your family really did bring so much joy thank you Steve

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.

We would love to welcome you back to Le Petit Bois with your family again next year!
