We chose this house as we have small children and it was far enough away from Calais to be an adventure, but not so far that the journey would be boring for them!
We had a great time staying here. The house had everything we needed and sitting on the balcony overlooking the lake in the evenings was excellent. The washing machine and drier proved useful, particularly for kids clothes!!
There was plenty for a young family to do. We were fortunate that the local fete was on whilst we were there which we loved. We went on the little train at Froissy which the kids loved and was also a good history lesson. We found a free makeshift beach and swimming pool in Peronne which the kids didn't want to leave. Plus we spent days in Amiens at the zoo, and visits to several other small towns which we came across. There was always a local bar for coffee, or a beer, and a bite to eat. There were plenty of local shops and supermarkets to keep us supplied. We found everybody we met very pleasant indeed.
The only thing that stopped this property being 5 stars was that it was unfortunately very dirty when we got there and we had to clean it. I have highlighted this to Aurelie ( who was delightful throughout the whole booking and arranging process ) and she was most apologetic and will raise matters with her housekeeper to avoid further problems.
