Brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Clean, warm and very comfortable house. Well equipped kitchen. Games and books (in French) for the children. Great wi-fi connection. Lydie and Philippe live on the same site and were so kind, friendly and helpful. Fruit and salad from their garden, eggs from their chickens, home made jam....all fantastic!

Puits La Vallee is really easy to get to from Calais...straight down the A16 then just a few minutes from the motorway junction. It took about 90 minutes.

Our children loved the play park across from the house (football, basketball, climbing frame, roundabout) and Lydie and Philippe also gave us badminton rackets to play with. And there is a table tennis table a few hundred metres into the village so we bought some paddles and balls.

There were bikes for us to use but the weather was too hot for the children to cycle far - there's not much shade by the roadsides.

The nearest shops/cafes etc are about 5-10 mins drive away. We visited Amiens a few times - small city very pretty by the cathedral and canal. There is a large swimming pool with wave pool, flume and lap pool at Breteuil (about 10 mins drive), we drove to Disneyland with ease and did a Park and Ride to Paris leaving the car at Sarcelles St Brice.

All in all a very handy location with easy access to lots of activities, a peaceful village for relaxing in the garden or enjoying short walks, a lovely gite and wonderful hosts in Lydie and Philippe.

And excellent value for what they charge. I'm sure we will be back.

A lovely part of France

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website do not do the cottage justice. The cottage is a marvellously clever combination of traditional and modern building techniques to provide a very comfortable home from home with every modern convenience. The courtyard is a pleasant place to spend a little time in the shade and the children have use of a small playground and well maintained field just outside the property.

The Rough Guide to France dismisses Picardy as having little to offer the traveller - a very unfair appraisal. We stayed a fortnight and could very easily have busied ourselves with another week of what l'Oise and la Somme have to offer. Particular highlights were the walk around Songeons and Gerberoy, the walk around Savignies, a trip to Le Crotoy, Samara (an archaeology 'theme' park that demonstrates the antiquity of the building techniques employed in the area), the towns and cathedrals at Beauvais and Amiens and a day trip to Paris.

Incidentally, the cheapest way for a family of four to enjoy Paris from here is to drive to Sarcelle St Brice and buy four zone 4 Cartes Mobilis - 50€ plus petrol compared with 130€ for a train from Beauvais and zone 2 Cartes Mobilis.

Finally but most significantly, the greatest contribution to our enjoyment of this holiday was the generosity and hospitality of Lydie and Phillipe. We were able to enjoy the produce of Lydie's vegetable garden, creating a courgette dish that will forever be known in our family as a 'Puits la Vallée special'. Lydie also provided us with local maps and walking guides so that we could fully enjoy the well marked walks throughout l'Oise.

Thank you Lydie and Phillipe for your warm welcome and for allowing us to share a little in the super lifestyle you have made for yourselves.

Quel agréable week-end de l'Ascension nous avons passé ! Le gîte est superbement restauré et la propriété magnifique. Les enfants ont particulièrement apprécié de pouvoir approcher les poules, lapin et tortue. Malgré les 4 jours sur place cela nous a semblé bien trop court, d'autant qu'il y a beaucoup de choses à voir dans cette très jolie région.

Un grand merci à nos hôtes pour leur accueil et une belle continuation à vous.

Marie, Julien, Louise et Hadrien

Gite agréable, accueil chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Un gite agréable, bien équipé, très propre ; un accueil chaleureux. L'endroit idéal pour passer de bonnes vacances picardes.

Ne manquez pas de faire une visite au magasin "Cœur de Picardie" à Crèvecoeur-le-Grand où vous trouverez les produits du terroir picard et les spécialités de Picardie.

Et surtout, un détour par la crêperie "Sucre et Sel" à Marseille-en-Beauvaisis s'impose ! Merci aux propriétaires pour leurs bons conseils !
