Make a holiday villa in Calais your home away from home

Calais is a stunning coastal area of north-western France, situated a mere 50 kilometres from the United Kingdom. Whilst the region generally experiences its fair share of tourist traffic, owing in part to British day-trippers, the majority of travellers tend to be transient, meaning that Calais offers all the perks of a tourist town without the constant crowds. A holiday villa in Calais is consequently perfect if you’re interested in a relaxing seaside break with the family, or a romantic weekend away that won’t break the bank. As well as holiday villas in Calais, HomeAway also presents apartments in town and homes in the surrounding area.

Things to do in Calais

The Calais region offers a magnitude of different activities, sights, and great holiday accommodation options, whilst its close proximity to the United Kingdom and Belgium also make it an attractive base for travellers looking to further explore this magnificent corner of Europe.

-Calais Beach is a charm during the summer months. Whether you’re interested in working on your tan, eating, shopping, playing minigolf with your children, or enjoying some of the amazing water sports on offer, Calais beach will definitely not disappoint.

-The Notre Dame Church , located within walking distance of most Calais holiday apartments in the town, is said to be the settlement’s oldest monument, dating back to the end of the 13th century. Whilst the structure itself has been altered numerous times over the years, both the architecture and interior, which includes huge stained glass windows, are certainly worth seeing and provide an interesting mix of both Tudor and Gothic architectural styles

-The Museums located in Calais are a great way to learn about the area’s rich history, with institutions like the Second World War Museum, the Lace Museum and the Calais Art Museum. World War 1and 2 enthusiasts may also be interested in visiting the Les Baraques Military Cemetery, which is located on the western outskirts of Calais, consisting of roughly 1300 Second World and 7 Second World War burial sites.

-The Burghers of Calais statue and the surrounding gardens are a great place to spend a few hours if you choose a holiday home in the Calais area, due to both its aesthetic and historical merits. The statue itself consists of life-sized bronze villagers in various different poses, and was commissioned in 1885 to commemorate a siege on the city during the Hundred Years War. Even if you’re not captivated by the statue’s history, the intricate detail, facial expressions and subtle differences between the villagers is certainly a sight to behold.

-Cape White Nose, situated roughly 10 kilometres south of Calais iis an absolute must-see, as the towering chalky cliffs and hills which line the seaside are undeniably breathtaking (and echo the White Cliffs of Dover across the English Channel). The amazing view of the Bay of Wissant and the presence of a World War 1 memorial and bomb craters, which date back to the Second World War, also make this a great location for a few interesting holiday photos and these locations are favourite trips of many visitors in Calais holiday villas.

The weather in Calais

The Calais area is well known for its mild climate, which generally makes for picture-perfect weather during summer months. The period between May and September is consequently preferred by most international travellers, although if you’re interested in visiting the Calais area during the winter months, you are ensured a relaxing authentic French getaway; in addition to a great off-season deal on holiday accommodation.

Getting to Calais

Calais can easily be reached via ferry, plane, train, bus or car from various locations in the UK, with most of these transport options requiring no more than 90 minutes travel time. Regardless of which transport option you choose however, you can expect to be relaxing in your luxurious Calais holiday apartment within a few short hours of leaving home.

Lovely if you want some peace and quiet with a garden and the beach nearby. The house is well furnished and comes with the bonus of a bath and shower as well as a DVD player which was a godsend. The garden has a gate you can close so you can let children play in it safely. The outside area also has a swing and slide as well as some neighbouring chickens to watch. You can walk to the beach/ nature reserve but with small children it might be better to drive. There is free parking and toilets by the beach as well as a duck/goose pond for feeding the birds. The hostess is very friendly and forthcoming. I can only recommend staying here and would hope that we will stay here again in the future.

My wife, dog and I had a superbly relaxing and comfortable stay in a gite which is well-equipped and decorated in style. The garden and woodland were perfect for our little dog and totally secluded for us with amazing countryside views from the decking. We also hadn't realised just how pretty the Pas de Calais is when you are not tearing down the A16 or A26 and just how many interesting places there are. Added to this is the warmth of welcome you get from Chantal and her family who were most friendly and helpful (and generous with their rhubarb, delicious home-made jam and chocolate madeleines!). Many, many thanks. We have no doubt that we have discovered a little gem here and we are already planning our next visit which will hopefully be for even longer than the fortnight we just enjoyed so much.

The house itself had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. Marie the owner was very nice and gave us a gift of some local apple juice on our arrival. The only criticism I have is that it is listed as wheelchair accessible but in my view would be more appropriate to be listed as limited mobility. The shower is over the bath, both of which are unusable for a wheelchair user without a hoist and the toilet was unable to be used by my husband if I wasn't around to help him transfer due to limited space. The rest of the house was very wheelchair friendly though. I'm not sure I would stay here again due to wheelchair issues but I would recommend it to anyone who needed some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
