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 Lacres
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.

Week end entre amis dans ce beau gîte très propre! Un accueil très chaleureux de Michael que nous remercions pour sa gentillesse!
Tout était parfait, le jardin, le boulodrome, les chambres... Rien à redire, je vous le conseille vivement!
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.
Superbe gîte, au clame.

Terrain de pétanque, barbecue ... top !
Spacious, clean, extremely friendly welcoming!
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
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!
Three generations with one view - terrific!
We received a very warm welcome from owner Michael who met us at the door and provided us with all the relevant information we needed.
The gîte was everything we had anticipated it to be from the description and photos that we had seen. It was extremely clean, modern, spacious, warm and inviting. The lengthy table was ideal for our family. It was reminiscent of the tables we have seen in other gîtes and in the homes of French families that we know. This link with the traditional whilst being very modern worked extremely well. I laid claim to the rocking chair as soon as I laid eyes on it! The wood pellet burning stove provided lots of heat but without any smell. It was particularly welcome on chilly, late-October mornings. The garden is very large but the highlight for us was the boules pitch, the scene of fierce encounters between the generations!
Not one member of the family complained about the beds and bedrooms, nor the two showers and bathroom. We all greatly appreciated the provision of wi-fi which handled our demands pretty well. The kitchen was compact and provided all the implements and utensils needed for cooking family-sized meals. Speaking of meals, a visit to Le Clos des Trois Tonneaux in Samer is definitely to be recommended. Also in Samer, less than 1½ miles away, are excellent boulangeries, boucheries/charcuteries, a marché and an ample number of cafés. There is an Intermarché supermarket in Samer but we preferred the Carrefour which was about 15 minutes away in Nesles.
Without doing too much driving there are umpteen beaches within easy reach, our favourites being Le Touquet and Hardelot. In recent years Hardelot has seen a great deal of work on improving the whole town and promenade. We have been calling in there on our way to various places for about 12 years and the difference is remarkable. Some good restaurants, cafés and fast food establishments cater for just about anybody's taste. Also within easy reach are Boulogne (chateau worth visiting), Montreuil-sur-Mer (great ramparts and medieval town) and St. Omer where the nearby La Coupole is a must for anyone with even the remotest interest in the World Wars of the 20th Century.
All-in-all we would recommend this gîte to anyone, particularly those who don't want to travel too far after reaching France yet are prepared to explore the area as there are wonderful places to be found that cater for all ages.
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.
