An extremely well appointed three-bedroom farm conversion in lovely countryside. The property is within easy reach of Calais and The small town of Avesnes-sur-Helpe is a short drive away with everything one might need. The owners live next door and are very helpful and welcoming. We were there in the winter, but it was warm and cosy with a modern wood stove. Thierry has done a fine job of converting the property to a very high standard, both in decor and equipment (hi-tech appliance fans will be in heaven!). We could see that in summer it would be a lovely place for families with children as there are lots of out-door areas for eating and playing, but even in the heart of winter the views across the fields are lovely and the steeple of the church in Avesnes can be seen in the distance. It's about an hour to the historic Belgian city of Mons and there are plenty of other day trips to go on (the Matisse gallery in Le Cateau-Cambresis is well worth a visit). Overall an excellent choice for up to six people - though anyone over five and a half feet tall needs to aware of the low beams upstairs!
