Excellent cottage with attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay in this lovely cottage. It was clean and modern and lived up to all expectations. The views are beautiful and the area is very peaceful yet close to shops, restaurants and places to visit. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions. They have prepared some useful guides to local attractions and places of interest. We visited Le Touquet, Boulogne, Brugge, St Omer, Calais and enjoyed cliff top and beach walks to Wissant whilst enjoying the view of England across the channel.

Gite Opale Inn - Property ID 642682 (August 26 - September 9 2017)

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this gite; it was clean, spacious (for the two of us), and was just as described, and Nathalie and Jean-Marc were very helpful. It was ideally situated to explore the places in and around the Calais area that we have bypassed at 80mph on the autoroute down the years!!

lovely, clean , spacious, modern.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this clean and comfortable cottage. It was very peaceful and easy to find. The big gardens were a bonus for us , as we could play outside . We had some lovely days out including Bruges, Ghent , Montreuil, Wissant and St Omer. We found the cite d'europe [shopping centre] very useful for the huge supermarket and a games room for the boys .

Geräumiges, ruhiges und lichtdurchflutetes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu drei Erwachsenen und einem 6jährigen Kind unsere Herbstferien in diesem schönen Ferienhaus verbracht.

Die Lage ist ausreichend abgelegen von Calais, so dass es dörflich und erholsam gelegen ist.

Dennoch nicht zu weit von der Cote d´Opale und Calais entfernt.

Wir haben es genossen beim Frühstück den Sonnenaufgang durch das große Bildfenster zu beobachten.

Der separate Wohnzimmer- und Fernsehbereich lädt zu gemütlichen Spielen ein.

Die drei Schlafzimmer im Obergeschoss sind ebenfalls geräumig und die französischen Betten bieten genügend Bewegungsfreiheit. Einem Schlafzimmer ist ein Waschbecken und eine Dusche angegliedert, praktisch und unabhängig.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Perfect location for an undisturbed stay

  • 5 of 5

As the house is located at the border of the village in the middle of a field, the closest neighbours are about 80 meters away; thus you are neither bothered by anybody nor have to worry about bothering someone else with e.g. loud music. It was very spacious for our four-person group and well equipped with everything we needed for the week we spent there, from the great kitchen to the washing machine. On sunny days the terrace in front of the house as well as the garden in the back were ideal for relaxing in the sun.

Outside of the house, the Cote d'Opale has many places worth a visit. The two caps and Calais are all reachable in less than 30 minutes by car, and there is also a bus stop close by where you can take a bus to Calais.

Many thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Joan for a very enjoyable stay!

Très bien

  • 5 of 5

Très beau gîte spacieux et bien équipé. Tout était très propre et en ordre à notre arrivée.

L'endroit est très calme, parfait pour le repos ou pour une mise au vert.

Les 3 chambres spacieuses nous ont accueilli (2 adultes + nos 3 enfants en bas âge dont un bébé) très facilement. Il y a même la place pour un 4eme enfant sans problème.

Communication très facile avec le propriétaire, par ailleurs très sympathique.

La documentation disponible dans le gîte (cahier compilé par les proprios) est très bien faite et donne une bonne idée des expéditions à faire dans un rayon de maximun 20-30min de route.

Adresse à garder et à conseiller.
