Less thann two hours drive from Calais on the A26, €9 in tolls and you arrive at St Quentin. The town
Claire and Patrick are superb hosts, generous and informative. The apartment is fabulous. An eclectic mix of styles around a theme, very Hollywood with a bit of Vegas thrown in. No expense has been spared furnishing this apartment.
Nothing is half done, the kitchen is great for preparing meals for four, with top quality microwave/grill, a dishwasher, hob and all the pots and pans etc. you could want. Washing machine and full size fridge & freezer are just a bonus.
Very comfortable king size bed at the back, huge wardrobes and lots of space, my teenagers were very happy with the single beds on the mezzanine level and had plenty of room.
The town square with its bars and restaurants are two minutes away on foot, the pubs are great, all service is friendly. Many takeaways are a few minutes away - Monoprix and the weekly farmers market are only a few minutes walk.
I dont want this to sound like this apartment is in the middle of town and going to be noisy - it is in town, but it is not noisy. there is a huge town hall and church between the apartment and the square which kills any noise.
There is a TV with DVD etc. and freeview but no english channels, so families with kids that need entertaining should bring some DVDs etc.
We will be back - the promise of Patrick's cooking (retired 1* Michelin Chef ) in the soon to be opened B&B next door will bring us back in Easter.
