Clean, modern family home in quiet rural location

4 of 5
This is a beautiful well cared for home and the owners are friendly and helpful. The area is very remote and quiet, perfect for a peaceful holiday to escape it all, however, the location does mean a fair bit of driving to find things to do. We were not aware of the 600 Euro cash deposit, which is required on arrival, at time of booking - this was a bit of a pain as meant changing up a lot more cash than we needed, and having to change it back on our return home. It also wasn’t clear that heating and electricity are not included in the rental price, although this wasn’t very much during our stay, it would be more during a winter rental.

Fabulous holiday!

5 of 5
We spent a lovely week's holiday at the gite with our 2 children aged 8 and 4. Thierry and Cecile were very welcoming. The accommodation is of high standard both inside and out. It's a real home from home. Very well equipped, clean, comfortable, good cooking facilities and we all loved being able to access Netflix on the TV! It was great being able to use the outdoor pool in the beautiful sunny, warm weather and we also used the ping pong table one evening. Thierry was very kind in letting us sample his home grown tomatoes and cucumber. We enjoyed a few family days out to Lac du Val Joly, l'etang de blangy, Maubeuge zoo and the Parc d'isle Jacques Braconnier at St Quentin. All great places to take children. We would highly recommend!
