The house was in a good position and easily spacious enough for four people. It was pleasantly appointed with a good large table at which we ate and a very useful dishwasher although the beds would have benefitted from cotton sheets and duvet covers. The toilet on the ground floor and steep wooden stairs were a bit of a drawback and the outside space at the back was shared with the dustbins so we did not want to sit out there. We would thoroughly recommend the restaurant which is the first on the left as you turn left into the Main Street of Stella Plage the food is very good and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.
This was our second stay at this house in Sorrus and again it didn't disappoint. As a group of older males on a motorbiking trip, the mix of accommodation is ideal and of the eight of us, only four had to share rooms but we could have also used the sofa beds to avoid this, had it been an issue. From Le Shuttle, it is only about an hour's ride down the coast road which offers many challenging bends as well as stunning views. Alternatively you can take the quicker A16 but it turns into a toll road as you go south towards the property. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need (plenty of cutlery and crockery) and the dishwasher ensures all can have a relaxing holiday without endless washing up. The lovely weather meant we made good use of the supplied barbecue and spent most of our time outside, but the space and layout enables people to get away from each other if required, even if it is raining. The outdoor table tennis and indoor pool tables also got some good use in the evenings. Sorrus is a very sleepy village, so it is necessary to travel for provisions, but the Carre Four Market is only a couple of miles away and stocks nearly everything (it even has a good selection of gluten-free items which one of us needed). It is about an hour's walk along a quiet road to the nearby town of Montreuil which is very picturesque and has a great selection of shops and restaurants. The location enabled us to combine a brilliant 1-2 hour ride on quiet, smooth open roads (with no potholes!!) before spending time at some of the many WW1 Battlefield sites and memorials. Alternatively, the seaside towns of Berck, Fort Mahon (great beach for swimming) and Le Crotoy are all quite close as well as a number of golf courses; there is great scenery for photographers or artists so there should be something relatively nearby to cater for most tastes. Peter, the very accommodating host, lives next door so is generally available in the event of any issues. All in all it was another great stay and excellent value for money. I would recommend this property for a large family, a couple of families travelling together or a larger group such as ours. Highly recommended.
