Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

20 minutes from the bustling medieval city of Le Mans, famous for the 24 hour motor race. One hour north of the Loire rivers' vineyards and chateaux. Forest and lakes nearby, such as the local Forest of Charnie and the magnificent Alpes Mancelles - ideal for walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, swimming.

Le Mans

Perfect base to visit the area, including the towns of Le Mans, with its magnificent cathedral, medieval city and fantastic shops, Alencon, Laval with its hilltop fortress, the lake at Sille Le Guillaume with its beach and sailing facilities, the medieval village of Saint Suzanne, picturesque St Cenerie, Fresnay Sur Sarthe, or Solesmes Abbey, with its Gregorian chants and hymns.

Saint Symphorien is a small friendly village of approximately 500 inhabitants located 20 minutes from Le Mans, with a boulangerie, butchers with epicerie, tennis court, boules ground and a Sunday market, selling fuit & veg, cheese, meat, fish, flowers, clothes.

There is a good public open air swimming pool in Tennie, a neighbouring village, which is just 6km from the house.

If you're looking for crowds and British people, you'll be hard pushed to find them here!

“perfect!”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2012

fantastic property with everything you need. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated, enchanting gardens.

Thank you for your review of Le Petit Bois. Part of the pleasure of this house is hearing that our guests get so much joy from staying here, and that it feels like a home from home.

“A remarkable house, secure for kids, perfect for entertaining”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2012

Great Stay. Great Place. Large Iron Gates provide perfect security to 5-10 acres of private property 20 minutes from old Le Mans. Located in charming village with Tabac, Bakery, Bar. Quintessentially France. House also has secure modern barns for parking your favourite toys. The garden / orchard area is plush and perfect for reading, playing, eating, drinking, relaxing. House is well suited for a family, or 2 families, a group of friends. Will be staying here again.

Hi there! Thanks for your review! We love that the house is on the edge of such a lovely village too, and enjoy being able to wander to the bar, butchers, Sunday market, etc. We hope to welcome you back to Le Petit Bos again soon.

“Wonderful Easter spent in the beautiful 'Le Petit Bois', everything catered for a perfect holiday.”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2011

A beautiful house set in a delightful secure peacefull garden. We entered the property via electronic gates into the beautiful court yard. The house itself is an old stone 'Maison de Maitre' with beemed ceilings and open fires. The kitchen is large with a lovely range cooker, although most of our meals were cooked on the huge BBQ in the garden. We visited old Le Mans and the stunning cathedral, and the children were delighted when we took them to the Motor Museum to see many of the cars that had taken part in the famous 'Le Mans 24hour' race. On days out we visited the beautiful Loire Valley , the Alpes Mancelles and of course Paris which took only 1.1/2hours on the TGV. This was a wonderful holiday spent in a glorious part of France in a house which is obviously someones beautiful home and not just a holiday let !

Many thanks for your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at Le Petit Bois. It is indeed a beautiful property and a lovely comfortable home for your holiday. We hope to see you back again soon.
