Farmhouse -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Genneteil, Maine et Loire, Pays de la Loire
****Please note that we have no reviews yet for Les Jumeaux because to date it has rarely been let as 'Les Jumeaux' which comprises both our gites (Le Petit Bosquet & Le Vieil Atelier) as a joint let. Please look at the separate adverts for the Reviews****

The gites have been created from what was previously an old ground floor apartment, a carpenters work shop and attic granary, one half 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 is extremely spacious accommodation comprising our two adjoining gites, ideally suited for couples both young and mature, or a family of up to...

Interaction with guests
Before you arrive, we ask 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
The two gites are 'semi-detached' with a door connecting the two at the top of the staircases. Each gite is entered via its own front door, with separate access to each garden; which also have a connecting gate. This means that separate families holidaying together do have the option to stay in their 'own space' or share, as they wish.

Both gites are recently renovated and are effectively 'none identical twins' - one is a little larger than the other and is decorated in a slightly more 'contemporary' style than it's 'chintzy' twin but all equipment and facilities are duplicated so there is the facility to cook and eat separately or watch different TV programmes (and listen to different music!) if you so choose!

The kitchens are well equipped...

About the neighbourhood
Genneteil has at its heart a Norman Church which acts as a roundabout of sorts connecting the roads coming from all directions. Essentially a rural community, Genneteil has no particular claim to fame (except its history) but the locals are very friendly - especially if you take the opportunity to practice your French! Despite this, Genneteil is well placed - if it were a mountain, it would be the peak! Major Cities, autoroutes and good transport links (including rail and air) surround Genneteil on all sides - essentially less than 1 hour in any direction.

There is a dairy from which you can purchase fresh milk, cream, yoghurts and other dairy products.

There is so much to see and do that it is difficult to know where to start! There are around 1000 Chateaux and many other sites of his...
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.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Tours: 65.0 km
Railway: Le Mans (TGV): 50.0 km
Ferry: St Malo: 235.0 km
From the UK we are easily accessible by road, some 3.5-4 hours due South from the channel ports of St Malo, Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre.

If you want to see a little more of Northern France, or indeed if your preferred UK port is Dover/Folkestone then the journey from Calais/ Boulogne is around 5-6 hours. You can get to Calais & Boulogne with P&O, Sea France, Eurotunnel etc. We have our own preferred route plan from Calais - please ask if you'd like to see it.

The easiest route is the Autoroute which essentially follows the coastline Southwesterly from Calais to Rouen, then turns South towards Le Mans. We are about 45 minutes drive South of Le Mans.

The autoroutes have regular 'aires' - places to stop with basic or more extensive facilities. Whether you need to g...
