Holiday Rental House
Le Petit Bosquet is a very spacious end-terrace 'cottage' ideally suited for couples both young and mature, or, with a recent internal change we can now offer accommodation for up to 7 (plus cot). Situated in the heart of the countryside but within easy reach of La Fleche with its famous Zoo; Baugé with its Chateau and Apothecary; the Chateau of Le Lude; and Noyant, our holiday cottages are ideal for those who want peace and quiet but local attractions are also within easy reach. Virtually equidistant from these four local towns, all boasting weekly markets, supermarkets and other modern amenities, the property is also ideally located for visiting the many and varied attractions of the Pays de la Loire including the cities of Le Mans, Angers, Nantes, Tours and Saumur with all they have t...Le Petit Bosquet is a very spacious end-terrace 'cottage' ideally suited for couples both young and mature, or, with a recent internal change we can now offer accommodation for up to 7 (plus cot). Situated in the heart of the countryside but within easy reach of La Fleche with its famous Zoo; Baugé with its Chateau and Apothecary; the Chateau of Le Lude; and Noyant, our holiday cottages are ideal for those who want peace and quiet but local attractions are also within easy reach. Virtually equidistant from these four local towns, all boasting weekly markets, supermarkets and other modern amenities, the property is also ideally located for visiting the many and varied attractions of the Pays de la Loire including the cities of Le Mans, Angers, Nantes, Tours and Saumur with all they have to offer. The cottage has been fully renovated and equipped to a high standard including cooking and dining facilities. Unlike many rental properties, our furniture and fittings were bought new for the gites.With up to three double beds (one being a sofa-bed) in different rooms and a single sofa bed which can be placed in either bedroom and up to three separate bathrooms; if, as a platonic group you prefer separate facilities it is great for you too. Created from an old ground floor apartment and attic granary at one end of a traditional 400 year old 'Longere' Farmhouse which is part of a Lieu-Dit noted in the French Government Patrimoine (Heritage) lists; parts of the property are recorded as being built originally during the early 1600's, quite possibly during the reign of Louis XIV (The Sun King). It has a semi - enclosed rear garden for the exclusive use of the gite occupants and access to most of the rest of the surrounding gardens.More

Interaction with guests
Before you arrive, it would help us to know when your arrival time is likely to be so that we can aim to be here for you - only under exceptional circumstances would this differ. We also ask if you have any specific interests or things you'd like to do so that some of the suggested activities can be drawn to your attention. When you arrive, we show you around the property outside and do a tour of inside, drawing your attention to various things of importance or interest and are also available to respond to questions. We live on site so allowing for leading our own lives we are generally available to assist with enquiries and so on whilst you are here. Besides that, we aim to be friendly...or not, as you prefer.

Additional amenities & feature info
You enter the gite into the original, but recently upgraded and spruced up kitchen which has doorways (at either end) through to the Salon and the Utility room. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses and also with scales, recipe books and various baking dishes for those who like to be creative when on holiday. There is a separate small kitchen table and chairs in addition to those in the Salon. In addition to the facilities listed above there is also a slow cooker, food processor and deep fat fryer, so you are not restricted to absolute basic cooking - unless you choose to be! To the rear of the kitchen there is a large utility room which gives access to the (exclusive use) garden and also into the full downstairs shower room. Cleaning equipment and a clothes airer are provided. To the left of the kitchen the sympathetically renovated Salon has a large flat screen plasma TV with free-to-view UK satellite channels and French digital programmes. It also has a Blu-Ray DVD player and Hi-Fi with iPod/MP3 inputs. For those with more traditional interests we also have a range of books, puzzles & games. The larger of the two sofas converts into a double bed with sprung mattress. Of course the Dining table and 7 chairs are also in the Salon. The gite also has a desk. Upstairs, the spacious primary bedroom with exposed beams has plenty of storage including a dressing table. In front of the South facing full length (dormer) window with Juliette balcony, there are easy chairs and a coffee table, which overlook the Courtyard Rose garden and the countryside to the South of the property. These chairs may be moved downstairs to accommodate larger parties in the Salon. There is an adjacent dressing area which gives access to the en-suite which has a large walk-in shower. The second (slightly smaller) bedroom (available for larger groups) is also upstairs and is very similar to the primary bedroom in terms of facilities, views and so on but with a different colour scheme and layout. The single sofa bed can be placed in either bedroom (by advance arrangement). Guests who have already stayed here have frequently said that our photos do not do the property justice when trying to illustrate the spaciousness the cottages have. Unlike some offerings this gite is very spacious indeed, particularly for two people.

About the neighbourhood
Genneteil is an ancient rural community, with a Norman Church. It is well placed; major Cities, autoroutes and good road links surround us on all sides, essentially less than 1 hour in any direction. There is so much to see and do that it is difficult to know where to start! There are 1000s of sites of interest, Chateaux, extensive orchards, world famous Zoos, Rose gardens, Geological sites and the Loire valley vineyards. Our gite manual details the more local, quirky and lesser known places, local restaurants, walking and cycling routes and locations for fishing, riding etc.. We have a selection of tourist brochures across a wide spectrum of interests. Come and get a real feel for what is available - we are sure you won’t be disappointed!
Getting around
As we are in the middle of a rural area, your own transport is essential. Public Transport (buses) do run from and through local towns but they are unlikely to be suited to tourist visiting requirements. Trains (TGV & SNCF) run from Angers, Le Mans & Tours but these are all 45mins -1hour from our location.
