We have stayed in quite a few French gites over the years and this has to be our favourite property so far. Despite being very rural and in the middle of no-where, the property has been renovated to a high standard - the photos do not do it justice! A lot of thought and care has gone into equipping the property (especially the kitchen) with everything a family needs for a home away from home. There was space for us to all spread out and relax inside or out and the beds were particularly comfortable. The property owners live close by and were very friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated the welcome groceries left in the fridge on our arrival - a Godsend after a hellish journey.
The only small downside was that there are no shops or anything of interest in the village, or the next village or even the one after that. The nearest place to buy bread and milk is a 10-15 minute drive away so a car is essential. There are plenty of places to visit within an hour’s drive - we particularly recommend Parc d’Isle near St Quentin, Castle of Coucy and the Resistance museum in Tergnier.
We spent a lovely 10 days in this lovely property and we hope to re-visit again soon.
