We stayed at Atlantis for my 30th birthday (8 adults and 2 children). The house was very well priced and suited our family well. We were very impressed to find all but one of the bedrooms had sea views and we loved the jacuzzi bath! The bonus of the holiday was finding that it was the fête d'ambleteuse on the day we arrived (first Saturday in August). The was a carnival, fireworks and more! It was a great atmosphere.
The location was perfect. We could just walk out the door and were on the sea front in under a minute. At high tide, the beach was a bit dangerous for our children (3 and 4) with slippery rocks underfoot but once it went out a bit it revealed a gorgeous sandy beach where we had hours of fun.
We were able to get to Ambleteuse from the channel tunnel in under half an hour as well as enjoying day trips to Boulogne, Calais, Wimereux, Cape Gris-Nes and Wissant, all also between 10mins and 30mins away.
Just a few things to point out about the house itself: The stairs were quite steep, and with 3 flights of them, we wouldn't have felt comfortable with our little one if he was any younger - perhaps ask for stair gates if you have little ones? Also, we found that in the main living area, there weren't enough seats on the sofa for everyone to sit down together comfortably, which on a few occasions was a shame. The layout worked well for us with my husband and I on the 2nd floor, with our kids next door, and the rest of our family up on the 3rd floor. This helped in the mornings when our kids woke at the crack of dawn and we were able to put distance between them and the others who all valued their sleep!! Be aware that the house was rather echoey though.
The owner was amazing. Great communication throughout the entire process of booking this holiday and was on hand to answer a couple of questions via email during our stay. We had a great time and we'd return again!
We have been working in Calais and wanted a couple of nights away for some peace and quiet. The place was perfect. Lovely well equipped kitchen with washing machine, oven, microwave, coffee machines, dishwasher, toaster etc. The bathroom has a bath and over bath shower. You can use the garden and there is lots of information about the local attractions and facilities. Ingrid lives in the main house so is usually available to help with any queries.
