FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
This place was just fantastic. Very rural. Lovely villages nearby. Lots to do. 15 mins from saint omer. Cassel. The gite was so comfortable. Everything you needed for a long weekend stay. Bernadette was there to welcome us with a roaring log fire. It was just perfect. Bernadette was just the most helpful person I have ever met. Nothing was a problem. The kids loved the freedom of the fields and the adventures. The place was so peaceful. I am definitely coming back here again. A real joy and a fantastic find. You won't be disappointed. I promise. See you soon.
John theresa and kids.
Merci.

THE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip with 3 kids to France and we were nervous about what, how, why, when. We should not have worried. Bernadette was wonderful and having brought half the contents of our kitchen, we rapidly realised, we should not have done. PG tea bags, salt, pepper, toilet rolls, Olive oil, cooking oil, spices, a bowl of fresh fruit. Bottle of local beer. WOW. The cottage was charming. Plenty of space for the kids to play "Hide and seek". We could have used the wood burner but central heating was excellent. Cottage was well kept and 'a home from home'. We had rain and wind every day, but it felt good everytime we got back from a day out. If this is the norm for French Gites, then I am converted, but I have a feeling this is special due to Guy and Bernadette.
Good luck.
best
James, Dian, Shaun, Cullen and Ewan.

STAY AT MONT BALENBERG

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for one night and would have liked it to be more. The Gite was very spacious and comfortable and we were given a very friendly welcome and kept well informed and advised by Bernadette, who made us feel very valued guests by providing us with a delicious complementary beer, fruit and sweets ( her jam is also lovely). Our bigget problem was being able to find the Gite (best to get clear directions for once you arrive at Noorpeene). However, it is definitely worth the effort, and once we arrived we felt immediately at home. We would be happy to recommend this home to anyone who wants to experience and enjoy some of the real countryside of Northern France.

BRILLIANT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Gite for 3 nights and found it one of the most comfortable places we have stayed. Everything was thought of down to the last detail, we honestly didn't think once, if only this had been provided. The location is perfect, so much to do and see is within a few miles drive, and the view from the gite is stunning.
The owners are "your perfect hosts" friendly, outgoing, helpful, would be there if needed, but not "in your face".
We have stayed in many, many places in France, Europe and beyond, but would definitely give "The Mont Balenburg" 5 out of 5.

CHARMING PLACE AND LOVELY PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at "The Mont Balenberg" for a weekend and really enjoyed it. The cottage is very spacious and full of character. The location is excellent - only 50 km from Calais. After about 50 minutes from the ferry we found ourselves in a peaceful farm style cottage with crackling fire in the fireplace and drinks in our glasses.

We wanted to spend a relaxing weekend and we were not disappointed. Bernadette gave us few ideas for spending our time in the area and we really enjoyed the Saturday market in Saint Omer which is about 10-15 minutes drive from the cottage and also we visited the beautiful village of Cassel on Sunday.

We will definitely come back, thank you very much Guy and Bernadette.
