This urban house is quiet, bright and warm with good facilities. It coped with the sub-zero temperatures very well (-5C on two nights). The house is well equipped and it all worked appropriately. Certainly comfortable and ample space. The renovation has been done well. Good off-road parking. Owners are helpful though English language is not their strength. Bourbourg is an interesting and attractive little town, especially the church with its Sir Anthony Caro sculptures and choir renovation. Local shops, bakers and butchers etc are easily within walking distance and Calais and Dunkirk are 20 minutes by car - easy access to the A 16. We were working in Calais for the week and would come back and rent again if we were to return to Calais.

The cottage sits within in a beautiful town and is ideal for getting to the Port at Dunkirk. The cottage decor and furnishings is to a very high standard with everything that we needed to ensure that our stay was comfortable. Luxury accommodation at an affordable price.

The property is simply beautiful, lots of space for a larger group to still have their own space, as well as a secluded garden for alfresco dining. The owner is very helpful too. Couldn't fault our stay here and will hopefully visit again next year.
