Well situated in a quiet hamlet close to all amenities, this property is very practical.
The area is well worth visiting and the property is a handy base. I would recommend it for 2 people as it might be a little small for 4 adults.
Madame Vasseur is very charming (we did not meet Monsieur Vasseur) and helpful. Furthermore they live close to the property in the event of any need.
A wonderful stay in an amazing house. 11 of us (8 adults & 3 children under 7) came together for a special family occasion for 4 days. Philippe was very responsive and flexible in advance of our arrival and very welcoming once we were there. The house is really well equipped (even a milk frother for morning cappuccinos!), with large bedrooms and modern bathrooms throughout. No worries about not having enough bathrooms for the different residents which is often a problem in holiday houses...
The pool was the perfect temperature, we were lucky enough to get decent sunshine during our stay. The cover was very secure so not worried about our children playing unsupervised once all was shut up. Only minor issue with the pool is that the cover doesn't open completely so you are slightly feeling like you are swimming indoors, however this does mean you are not dependent on the weather being good!
The little village of Miannay has an excellent butcher, convenience store and a couple of bars (however be aware in August of their holidays!). We had our dinners in the house making the most of the butcher's fantastic produce (great steaks, roast chickens and a lovely stuffed joint of pork) and the large BBQ and well equipped kitchen. A decent sized bakery in the next village (5 mins drive away) was our destination for picking up baguettes & croissants in the morning as the village shop was shut for two of the days we were there.
We managed a couple of days out at Valery sur Somme and Crotoy, also check out Cayeux sur mer for a massive beach with 14km of boardwalk.
Overall would highly recommend the house to anyone looking for a family holiday or gathering with friends, well located about 1hr 15 mins from Calais so definitely doable for a long weekend from the UK or for a longer stay! Philippe was a great host, he was readily available if required but never intruded. Thank you Philippe for your hospitality, hope to see you again...
