About Michael Reid

Originally from Hertfordshire Michael moved to France in 1994 and married Danielle. They moved to Pas De Calais, from the Paris region in 1995. The plan was stay for 6 months. Over 20 years later they’re still here and loving it!

Michael Reid purchased this house in 2005

Why Michael Reid chose Tingry

We discovered the village of Tingry in 1997 and bought an old apple orchard at the entrance of the village. In 2004 we built Les Tilleuls in it from scratch. Our very own purpose built family holiday home! We wanted to create something that we’d want to stay in when we went away. It needed to be big enough to take all the family, very comfortable with quality furnishings. We “opened for business” in 2005 and were awarded 3 star accommodation ratings from Gites de France and the French Tourist board.

It does what it says on the tin. It’s built for holidays and getting everyone together in one place.

What makes this house unique

Great location, close to historical towns, glorious beaches and wonderful forests. Yet a peaceful rural setting. The house is fully independent with huge lawn gardens. There’s no one going to disturb you if you want a relaxing day in the garden and no one to disturb if you want a late night BBQ party!

You feel remote, but actually you’re very close to “civilization”. There are a whole host of visits, activities and attractions to enjoy whilst you’re here. There's enough to keep the entire family occupied, something for all ages and tastes. If you run out of ideas we’re on hand to help……..

Our daughters loved the region as toddlers and children. Now they’re enjoying it as teenagers, and some as young adults………….will they ever leave!

Truly real France and real close if you’re arriving from UK. Under an hour’s drive from Eurotunnel or the ports and you’re here.... on holiday.

Oxted, Surrey

A varied week in the Pas de Calais

  • 5 of 5

Les Tilleuls perfectly matched its description. It was well equipped and well maintained with a lovely garden.It is a short drive from Boulogne where we were able to stock up with French delicacies at the Auchan hypermarket. Boulogne Centre Ville is a typical seaside port - not worth a visit, but the fortified town is nice and has a little cobbled street, lined with small restaurants.

Les Tilleils offered all of us opportunities for a good holiday. Despite dull weather my grandchildren enjoyed the local beaches at le Touquet and Hardelot. Nausicaa is probably not as good as Oceanopolis at Brest but fine on a wet day.My youngest son and his girlfriend enjoyed an overnight trip to Paris by catching the train at Boulogne,while my husband and I managed to visit all of the towns in Nord Pas de Calais ... and slightly beyond! We visited Arras with its restored squares,Amiens with its beautiful cathedral and its canals,le Touquet, St Omer - a pleasant small town - and Lille which we especially liked.We had lunch in the main square and coffee in Meert, which has been there since C18th.Lille also has some nice shops.

Other trips that we enjoyed were to the Cistercian Abbey at Valloires which we were shown round by a young French guide. It was challenging trying to follow so much detail in french but satisfying to pick up some of it.There is a beautiful garden with a small shop and restaurant.

La Coupole is also very interesting. The approach tunnels are always very cold which adds to the atmosphere but would make a sweater essential on a hot day.The information is well presented and the head phones deal with the language problem.This is not really a visit for children much younger than 10 or 11. There is a little cafeteria at the entrance and as the visit lasts 2/3 hours, it's sensible to have a drink at the start.Their sandwiches also provided a satisfactory lunch at the end.

We all enjoyed our week at les Tilleuls and it was a relaxing place to return to in the evenings and catch up on what everyone had been doing.

Owner's Response: The Pas de Calais truly is « real France – real close ». So easy to get to and so much to see and do. Sure there are no guarantees on the weather but that goes with being « real close ». The upside is that guests staying at Les Tilleuls tend to be more adventurous with their excursions when the sun’s not shinning, taking home more memories of « real France ». The Les Tilleuls as Marjory found out is large enough and comfortable enough for all the family and for all ages. In renting Les Tilleuls you’ll enjoy a quality holiday home and a perfect base for exploring the region.

We had a wonderful time here. There were 4 adults and 5 children and we had room for a few more. The house was well equipped and in great condition. The garden was amazing and the kids loved being outside in the beautiful French fresh country air. We made full use of the outside area for eating, BBQing and drinking red wine in the evening.

Our host Michael was incredibly accommodating and full of local information. He made our stay that extra bit special. All communication before and during our trip was answered quickly and with utmost sincerity.

I would definitely recommend a stay here and enjoy the peace along with the amazing sunset while you sip your favourite tipple in the evening whiling the night away!

Thanks Michael, see you again soon.

Spacious, clean, extremely friendly welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we expected for a large family (9 adults, 2 children, 3 dogs!). The house was perfectly sized, we could relax and stay together in the living area. Great extra point: the wellness & beauty center just next door, owned by the owners. The treatment that I offered myself was really good: organic products, nice little place, comfort, and very skilled esthetician! I'd love to go back. Stéphanie

Vakantiehuis voorzien van alle comfort

  • 4 of 5

Het huis is voorzien van alle comfort dat je nodig hebt. Alles was in goede staat en goed onderhouden. In de keuken was alles wat je kon bedenken aanwezig, zelfs kinder eetgerei en -bestek.

Alle bedden waren gedekt ook al waren we maar met 7 volwassenen. Het huis ligt wat afgelegen maar goede uitvalbasis voor uitstapjes. Er is een fijne en ruime tuin.

Afspraken met eigenaar verliepen zeer vlot. Bij aankomst was het huis heerlijk verwarmd met de pelletkachel. Gezellig!

Car: recommended

Set in the Boulonais region of Pas de Calais, between the Opale coast and a vast expanse of Natural Park Lands. A wonderful selection of sandy beaches, such Hardelot, Le Touquet, Ste Cecile. The house is half way between the historical fortified towns of Montreuil & Boulogne sur Mer. This truly is real France, real close to the British shores. Only 45 minutes drive from the tunnel or ferry ports.

Golf: Golf on the Opal Coast at Hardelot - LeTouquet - Nampont-Saint-Martin - Belle Dune -Wimereux - Aa Saint-Omer - Dunkerque - Abbeville - Arras

With its 11 eighteen-hole and 3 nine-hole golf

courses, the Opal Coast offers golfers a wide range of quality courses, both along its coastline and inland.

The quality and attractiveness of its golf courses are well known to all, up to the very highest level.

International competitions have been held here for many years.

In 1990, the 9 golf clubs decided to work together to promote the Opal Coast as a golfing destination.

From this union was born a strong motivation to make this coastline in the North of France a major centre for European golf and to improve constantly the quality of the courses and of the services on offer.
