Simply a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this property several times now and will definitely be back again soon. This property offers a fully equipped kitchen and is extremely comfortable. Plenty of things to do for the children from playing in the garden, nice country walks, table tennis and 30-40 minutes from the beach.

There are some lovely country roads and local places of interest to explore.

This is a perfect property to relax and spend quality time with each other and would highly recommend.

Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at this property in the hopes of getting some much needed R&R and that's exactly what we got! It's easy to find and less than an hour away from Calais in the French countryside. Lovely quiet spot and a lovely rustic house with lots of space to relax. Obviously with the cold of winter, we stayed tucked inside the house in the warmth but the big garden looked great for summer fun and BBQs.

Perfect traditional French holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this house from the moment we set foot in it and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone and staying there ourselves again.

The location is perfect for exploring the local area and is less than an hour from the coast and from a number of famous historical battle sites.

The house itself oozes charm and old fashioned comfort and was so cozy and warm when we stayed during an extremely cold period of February that we never felt the need to light either of the two fireplaces in the kitchen and sitting room.

The large garden with BBQ area and the very large sleeping area upstairs suggest that this would be a great rental for a family or large group come summer time.

A brilliant house with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing break.

A brilliant rental.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many French holiday lets I can honestly say this is the best yet. We always go away for November the 5th. Our dog hates the never ending fireworks!

This is a perfect place. A home from home. It is very very comfortable, well furnished and well equipped. The central heating was lovely and warm. Just the ticket in November.

There is a lovely large private garden, very comfortable seating, well equipped kitchen and everything one needs and more.

We thoroughly recommend this property.

A big thankyou to the owners who have given a lot of thought to making their property "simply the best."
