Fabulous location with the charm of rural France!

  • 4 of 5

Having arrived in Vaucelles les Domart we found the property as described in the listing, but you get lots more too!

The location is fabulous, set in mature well cared for grounds. Having entered through the electric gates you only see part of the property and each aspect is different.

The layout of the property suited our party of 4 adults and 2 children, especially the ground floor bedroom for people with reduced mobility.

Other facilities in the property were as you expect in rural France. There are large ground floor living areas containing grand pieces of furniture. The décor is in keeping with this, whereas the first floor bed and bath rooms are of a modern style.

Outside the heated pool area is secluded and well maintained, many a happy hour can be spent eating, drinking and just relaxing.

The owner is a very nice lady called Florence who was not seen, but kept in contact to check we were having a good stay.

We would definitely stay here again and would happily recommend to others looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our group of two families - 4 adults, 3 children, and a baby had an absolutely lovely time here in Vauchelles. The house was a perfect getaway. We made use of the pool everyday (sometimes so hot we had all the umbrellas up around the pool), the children really enjoyed the games room, and spent hours in the pool. The gardens are lovely and made for great fun playing Boules, badminton and treasure hunts! The nearest supermarkets and shops are a five minute drive away in Flixecourt and had everything we could need, we went out most days for fresh bread from the Boulangerie.

The house was lovely and we made use of the log fire in the evenings as the grown ups played games. Upstairs rooms were ideal and allowed us to shift beds around to suit families so that the middle bedroom was accessed without disturbing others. We had a lovely day trip to nearby Amiens, although missed the market day.

The house is ideal if you just want to get away from it all and enjoy a peaceful time, but also close enough to the main routes if you prefer day trips.

Vauchelles les Domart

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The swimming pool was fantastic and the equipment which came with it provided hours of enjoyment. The garden was also very good - lots of space for running around. We also enjoyed exploring Amiens and Abbeville nearby - very impressed with the play facilities for kids.

Location idéale pour famille(s) avec enfant(s)

  • 5 of 5

Une grande maison, parfaitement agencée, pour un séjour hivernal où les petits, même si relativement nombreux, peuvent s'amuser intensément sans pour autant priver les grands de leurs temps propres. Une location à recommander à coup sûr, tant pour les qualités de la maison, de ses nombreuses salles de bain, de sa cheminée et de son jardin que pour la gentillesse et la disponibilité de ses propriétaires. On attend avec impatience de découvrir la maison l'été pour profiter de sa piscine. Un vrai moment précieux pour citadins en quête d'oxygène ou juste de bien-être.

Calme et sérénité

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé de bonnes vacances, calmes et reposantes au sein de cette vaste propriété. Les pièces vastes et redécorées ont contribué à la réussite de ce séjour. La piscine chauffée, ainsi que le jardin arboré très bien entretenu ont permis à nos enfants de profiter de l'endroit malgré les quelques jours de pluie au cours de cette semaine.

La visite du Crotoy ( à peine 40 min en voiture), de st Valéry sur Somme, et du parc du Marquenterre nous ont également permis de découvrir en famille la Baie de Somme, réputée pour ses phoques et ses oiseaux.

A faire à St Valéry : la visite touristique en bateau et en train à vapeur!

Je recommande vivement cette location à tous ceux ( entre amis ou en famille) qui cherchent calme, sérénité, dans une vaste propriétaire à l'accueil chaleureux et cosy.

Très agréable séjour en Picardie

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux agréables semaines dans cette maison fleurie et arborée. Toute le confort nécessaire à nos trois enfants et à nous-même étaient réunis. La piscine chauffée est, par ailleurs, très agréable et très fonctionnelle.
