Location and property spot on

  • 4 of 5

We where a family of 6 adults and 4 young children the property was spot on as regards facilities and location having Peter on site was a great benefit. The nearby city of le touquet was one of the nicest places I have every been and I have been to a lot. Paris seems a long way away but we visited Disney Paris in a day and it was a very easy great drive because of the toll road at a very reasonable price. The only down on the property is that the internet signal is not great but our own was so make sure you have unlimited internet before you go.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the farm house was easy to find (thank god for sat navs) and ideally located. We went out every day to a different place and didn’t, travel more than 25 minutes at any time.

I would say that the village appeared very quiet and we didn’t find any sort of shop or eaterie but saying that the supermarket was only a few minutes drive away and this didn’t cause us any problems.

There were 10 adults, 2 small children and a small baby in our party and the sheer size of the place meant that at no point we we in each other’s way. The pool table in the huge dining room was a particular favourite.

Peter lives in the attached property and was on hand if needed but otherwise was in the back ground. A special thanks to Peter as the reason for our family holiday was to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday and he not only recommended a restaurant to us but actually booked everything up on our behalf and then popped around to ensure we had a good meal - which we certainly did.

I would certainly cecommend this property.

Ideal, rambling, and interesting house for our family of 7 adults and 5 children

  • 4 of 5

Large, comfortable house with plenty of space for everyone. Large, cool dining room and table especially welcome in the exceptionally hot weather we had for some of the time when too hot to sit outside. Good and secure, outdoor space for children with swings etc., but disappointing that the ping-pong table dipped in the middle and unsuitable for a game. However, inventive children enjoyed making a den underneath.

Some of us found the various steps and stairs a bit difficult -- but we were warned!

Shower in the "Napoleon" bedroom tricky to say the least; and toilets in the ensuites would be an improvement, also another shower unit maybe instead of a bath.

Very good location in delightful village,with small park and children's play area just behind the house, not too far from beaches. On occasion, we did notice noisy neighbours and their dogs quite late into the night.

Peter was welcoming and helpful; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house in Sorrus.

A really good mix of accommodation which is great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this house in Sorrus and again it didn't disappoint. As a group of older males on a motorbiking trip, the mix of accommodation is ideal and of the eight of us, only four had to share rooms but we could have also used the sofa beds to avoid this, had it been an issue. From Le Shuttle, it is only about an hour's ride down the coast road which offers many challenging bends as well as stunning views. Alternatively you can take the quicker A16 but it turns into a toll road as you go south towards the property. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need (plenty of cutlery and crockery) and the dishwasher ensures all can have a relaxing holiday without endless washing up. The lovely weather meant we made good use of the supplied barbecue and spent most of our time outside, but the space and layout enables people to get away from each other if required, even if it is raining. The outdoor table tennis and indoor pool tables also got some good use in the evenings. Sorrus is a very sleepy village, so it is necessary to travel for provisions, but the Carre Four Market is only a couple of miles away and stocks nearly everything (it even has a good selection of gluten-free items which one of us needed). It is about an hour's walk along a quiet road to the nearby town of Montreuil which is very picturesque and has a great selection of shops and restaurants. The location enabled us to combine a brilliant 1-2 hour ride on quiet, smooth open roads (with no potholes!!) before spending time at some of the many WW1 Battlefield sites and memorials. Alternatively, the seaside towns of Berck, Fort Mahon (great beach for swimming) and Le Crotoy are all quite close as well as a number of golf courses; there is great scenery for photographers or artists so there should be something relatively nearby to cater for most tastes. Peter, the very accommodating host, lives next door so is generally available in the event of any issues. All in all it was another great stay and excellent value for money. I would recommend this property for a large family, a couple of families travelling together or a larger group such as ours. Highly recommended.

It did what it said on the tin! (English)

  • 5 of 5

It was cosy yet spacious, and all the amenities just right. We had four adults and six children for a week and all had a wonderful stay. Supermarket not too far, beaches superb and warm sea to swim in at Le Touquet. The kids loved Nausicaa in Boulogne and we even got to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower so situation was ideal. Having Peter on site was helpful and we'd do it again for sure.
