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.
