Sports & Adventure Activities
Great location in clifftop hamlet near coastal path
The location of the cottage is amazing. Less than 30 mins from crazy Calais Port brings you to the tranquility of the Opal Coast (Cote d'Opale). The cottage is in an attractive one-street hamlet a few hundred yards from a lovely coastal path that takes you in one direction to a secluded beach (15 mins) and then on to the lovely village of Audresselles and in the other direction it takes you to Cap Griz Nez with its light house and viewpoint. From the coastal path on a clear day you can view the Kent coast and there is also good wildlife - we watched seals in the sea and enjoyed seabirds. There are lots of WW2 concrete remnants along the coast to look at and WW2 museums nearby. The little beach is pebble but at low tide is sand too - the perfect combination in our eyes. With no car access, few people visit it except walkers. The whole stretch of the Opal Coast has lots of small towns and villages to visit with good beaches (mostly sandy) and rock pools and Calais and Boulogne have plenty to do if you want larger towns. There is a fairly large supermarket at Marquise (15 mins drive) plus village bakeries nearby.
The cottage itself has been done up fairly recently I imagine. The kitchen is really well equipped with everything we needed to eat as a family of 4, a comfortable sitting area, a dining area and a conservatory at the back all in one big open plan space. There is a shower room off the conservatory downstairs and another toilet upstairs. The two bedrooms are very spacious. The garden is private - it has decking and patio furniture and is sheltered from the coastal winds if they blow.
You pay by bank transfer in euros. The owners take a pretty hefty security deposit - which we have experienced before in France so isn't unusual. Ours was paid back quickly after our stay with no problem. You pay an extra 50 euros to a cleaner who lets you in and sees you off at the end and cleans after you go. The owners were very responsive and helpful even though they are not local - they had a local person who was also very helpful when we had a problem with the boiler (which is new we understand).
You have to bring your own bedding for this property. We took everything (including our own duvets and pillows) but there were duvets and pillows there without the covers which we could have used. However, they are of course French sizes and the pillows are square French ones though small ones so they would probably fit inside housewife pillow cases.
Endroit idéalement situé pour visiter la région
C'est déjà la deuxième fois que nous venons et nous restons enchantés de notre séjour.
Maison parfaitement située pour les visites.
Nous reviendrons encore avec grand plaisir.
Bel endroit, incite au repos
Nous avons aimé l'endroit pour son calme et ses possibilités de ballades, juste dommage que le temps n'ait pas été de la partie. La maison est agréable et bien équipé. A refaire.
Maison très agréable, environnement calme et reposant avec de superbes ballades.
Un super séjour dans un super cadre. La maison est idéalement située et permet de faire des balades magnifiques. Découverte d'une région où nous reviendrons!
