The Gite served as a base for our exploration of the Arras region. The village is lovely with a lot of history - please try the fare at the local bakery. The Gite itself is small with 3 bedrooms but with potential to sleep 6. Having this number stay would perhaps be problematic with regard to the sitting room which, although comfortable, is small (but more than adequate for our stay). We have given feedback to the owner that there would be benefit in providing a list of local services - shops, restaurants and other local services such as hospitals etc in addition to perhaps thinking about providing details of the history of the village, of which there seems a great deal and which is always of interest to visitors. Visitors would also benefit from having a supply of leaflets from local attractions. The owner is aware and has said that this will be done. Just one thing about the Gite to be aware of - the stairs are a little tight for those visitors of a larger disposition. Lastly, the Homeaway website for the Gite is confusing with regard to the sauna and pool of which we saw nothing. In summary, this is a lovely small comfortable Gite in a lovely village and area and is a great base for the region - one with even more potential with a little more care.
We enjoyed a glorious week at this accommodation with our young daughter. Francine and Jean-Claude were most friendly and welcoming hosts. The accommodation was immaculately clean and very well presented. The facilities were exactly described and the apartment has everything you would need. Two shops are available in a neighbouring village (10 mins away) plus bigger stores in Albert or Arras. Francine showed us how she makes butter, we met the horses and got to visit the farm to see the milking of the cows - our daughter loved it. Our only regret was that our French was rubbish - as I dearly wish I could have chatted more to Francine because she was so welcoming. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone - especially if you are interested in the First World War sites as it is ideally placed for the sites on the Somme and only a 2 hour drive from the Ypres Salient.
