A lovely stay

5 of 5
The gite is a great place to base a stay as it is right on the France/Belgian border. The accommodation is very spacious and has everything you need. The supplies of coffee, orange juice and beer to start us off were a lovely touch. Madame Henrard was very helpful and was available at all times if we needed help. Having the outside terrace was a real bonus in the hot weather. We would thoroughly recommend the gite to anyone.

An absolutely wonderful experience. Superb apartment, wonderful breakfasts consisting of freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade jams to die for, lovely coffee and a daily mixture of brioches, croissants, pain au chocolat and crusty bread all warm from the oven. Very comfortable and we will be back!
