I've not been in a gîte for years, since the days when they meant roughing it with some degree of comfort. I knew that standards have improved, but I wasn't expecting anything as good as this.
Upstairs there's not just a comfortable bed, there's even an electric blanket and a wall safe. There's also a modern bathroom with a splendid, large shower.
Downstairs is a pleasant living room with Sky TV (the free stuff), a wood burner, a comfy sofa and a kitchen with range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher! And as the owners are English, there's also a kettle and a teapot.
Outside is a pleasant patio with furniture and visitors have use of all the extensive garden. There's also free Wifi.
Two things stood out for us though. The warmth of owners Janet and Peter, who left us a welcome bottle and joined us for an evening apéritif and chat before we left, and the absolute peace of this rural paradise, where the loudest sound to be heard was the song of various finches and one particularly raucous blackbird. Even a local cockerel couldn't be bothered crowing until 11am.
With the nearest shop a couple of miles away, it's a little remote for some, perhaps, but if you like perfect peace it's just the job. Also, it's a great area for cycling and walking, while by car, Le Touquet and Bourgogne are within 20 miles
A most enjoyable break, highly recommended.

This is the 8th consecutive year we have stayed here for our annual golf trip. The Gite is perfect for our 16 golfers and has everything we need. Alan and Karen, who manage the property, live local and are always available if needed. We have also noticed small improvements year on year since we have been staying here. I would fully recommend this place.
