About Chris Bathe

My wife (Yvonne) and I live in North East London. We are real francophiles having holidayed all over France for many years. Our other interests include: Reading, Films, Good Food, Art, History, Walking and Sport.

Chris Bathe purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Chris Bathe chose Avesnes

We decided several years ago that we would like to own a house in France to get away from our busy day to day lives. We wanted a place that was easy to get to, suitable for short or long breaks. The Pas de Calais area fits the bill. We can be at the house from home in the UK inside 3 hours including crossing.

Living in London we were also looking for peace and quiet, but with good local amenities.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We spent 18 months viewing properties before finding the right place. The house is secluded with barely any passing traffic. So you can relax in peace. It was basically a shell when we first bought it, so we have been able to decorate to our taste. The house is large with spacious rooms allowing relaxation in comfort.

The terraces outside allow you to follow or avoid the sun in good weather.

The large garden allows a variety of activities including above ground pool. This can be used but only at users own risk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazed at the size of the house. Website pics don't do it justice. Very tastefully decorated with lovely furniture. Weather Fab, made use of BBQ. Great days out at Beaches of Le Touquet, Berck & Wimereaux. Dennys Park great for young children. A lovely break, made very comfortable with a great house.

We rented the fermette the week before Easter and we are still thinking about our break!!!
The house is much bigger than we imaged (I wish I was able to send our pictures) and it is kept extremely well. Downstairs you will find a well equipped kitchen, a lovely breakfast room, a beautiful dining room and a comfortable sitting room with a huge fireplace (which we used a lot as it was a little chilly in the evenings).
The car is a MUST as the cottage is tucked away in the open countryside.
We visited different places everyday all equally good and interesting (we have left some brochures). There are some markets during the week in the nearby Montreuille (to visit).
On the coast (only 20 mins away) we found the best fish ever!! Good choice of fish shops were you will find all sorts of fresh fish. Back to the fermette we sat outside as the weather was good there is a large table and chairs We used the gas fired BBQ to grill our fish and french sausages... merveilleux!!!

Although we didn't see the owners we found them always available and very helpful especially when it came to find the fermette!!!
A big thank you to Yvonne and Chris you made our break SUPERB!!

What a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful fermette. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, the kids loved the day bed and my husband loved playing the Eric Clapton CD every night! Very well equipped and great for kids, plenty of space and we made loads of noise but no-one could hear us! Had some great trips to Montreuil and Le Touquet. Karen was very helpful. Thanks for letting us rent it!

Much better than the description and photos!

  • 5 of 5
Huge, well fitted, clean, comfortable, well situated - everything you want or need under one roof. Nice touch with the English plug sockets, great selection of everything you could need for the kitchen and the general fittings were excellent.
Will definately look to rebook as soon as possible - would recommend to anyone.

BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a long weekend from the beautiful 'Fermette'. The photos do not do it justice! I wish our little second home was as well furnished and interior designed.
It is a real home from home. We had not taken in that the 'breakfast room' has 2 sofas and a table for 4 to eat. Our teenagers could leave us in peace when they wanted to watch DVD's on the other TV. Neither TV are linked to French/UK networks, leaving us to enjoy the peace and quiet.
The kitchen is very well equipped and bathroom excellent with very good power shower. Bathroom basin tap clever intelligence test to get hot water- ask the very helpful Alan if you can't work it out.
The bedrooms are also nicer than the photos with excellent thick comfy mattresses.
Heating was challenged by arctic conditions when we stayed, but Alan seemed happy with the fairly significant use of wood on the fire and in the excellent wood burning stove.
Our only problem was having to have a short break as our teenagers wanted to see their friends-we wanted to stay longer.
Shops are a fair distance so worth being organised re shopping and also petrol.Locals say Rumilly is closer for shops/boulangerie but didn't get to test that one out.

Owner's Response: Thanks to Amanda for her positive comments. We're really pleased that she enjoyed her stay. We do try to offer a comfortable and relaxing environment.
We do know that there is a Boulangerie in Rumilly, but have never found any shops. If anyone does we would certainly want to know.

Highly recommended

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely week here. It was clean and comfortable, out of the way as it said which was great. The property was bigger than we imagined with a large garden.
It is ideal if you want to get away from the hastles of English life, and yet is within easy reach of lots to do.
Take your books and dvd`s and chill out, would really recommend it.

Our house is situated just under an hour from Eurotunnel, and about 30 minutes from Le Touquet. Nearby the small fortified town of Montreuil, is about 10 minutes drive away. There are many shops and good restaurants here, and a lovely walk all the way round the ramparts which surround Montreuil.

The nearest village is Hucquelier, 5 minutes drive away. This has: Supermarket, Garage, Bar/Restaurant, Bank, Bar/Tabac Boulongerie and Garden Centre (Which sells firewood).

There are really great beaches and water parks both at Le Touquet, and the Picardy coast, plus a theme park for the older kids at Berck, on the coast. For small children, there is another theme park called ‘Dennlys’, about twenty minutes away in the countryside towards St Omer.

If you are interested in history, there is the V2 museum and bunker near St Omer, the Azincourt museum, and the first world war memorials between the towns of Arras and Amiens, all within an hour from the house.

For keen golfers, our house is well within an hours drive from some very good courses, including Le Touquet, Hardelot, Fort Mahon, and St Omer.

Other Activities: microlite flying, small plane tours, canoeing, go karting, and local markets.
