The Beach House is a high quality holiday villa (or gite) located in the heart of Berck-sur-Mer, a seaside town in the Pas-de-Calais region on the Opal Coast, less than an hour’s drive from the Channel Tunnel and ferry ports.
The house itself is situated just a short walk from the town’s vast and beautiful sandy beach and its many shops and restaurants and has a heated private pool (with endless swim jets) and a 4-5 person luxury spa enclosed in a fully retractable conservatory ("abri"); great to use whatever the weather.
Berck is well situated, being close to Le Touquet and the Opal Coast towns to the north, the beautiful Somme area to the south and the pretty seven valleys area inland to the west. There is a lot to do in the local area.
This house is available to rent and provides top quality and spacious accommodation, being over 300 squares metres in size. In addition to the private heated pool and spa, it has been renovated to a very high standard with all mod cons and excellent facilities, including free wifi, hundreds of UK, French and other TV channels, free on-demand entertainment services, a wii games console with games (in its own room), garden games, boards games, books and more. It has excellent facilities for all ages, including children, and offers good value for money.
The property is detached, fully enclosed within its own grounds behind lockable gates and totally independent. It has a massive living area comprising a huge sitting room, a large kitchen diner in addition to a separate dining room, a second sitting area in the pool room, a relaxation-come-games room (containing a top of the range electric massage chair) and - if required - a third sitting room with games console. There are three double bedrooms, two twin rooms and three luxury bathrooms. It is set back from the road on a quiet road with no through traffic.
Outside, the house has a good-sized, private, lawned and enclosed, sunny garden with large, wrap-around terrace and, of course, the private heated pool with spa. The pool and spa are enclosed in a large retractable telescopic conservatory, meaning they can be either outdoor (for sunny days) or enclosed (for rainy days) at your choice, so you can always make the best of the weather.
There is off-street parking for two cars on a gravel driveway within the grounds and further parking outside.
The villa was a great property with all the facilities you would need for a great holiday and the pool was an absolute winner with the children and the adults. Location to the beach was ideal and with all you would need included in the property settling in to the holiday was instant. I would only say that the colour scheme was a bit dated and orange and could do with an update but this didn't detract from the property and holiday. Great memories made from a great family holiday.
The house was easy to find and comfortable. There was enough room for everyone and it was lovely to have a garden. We also appreciated being able to walk to the beach. The spa and swimming pool were a great deal of fun and we enjoyed using them. I would not call it a luxury house though but it was fine for us as a family holiday home with lots of nice touches.
We had a great time at this place....massive house, enough for 3 families weekend break....Michael is really great host....he even send our jackets that we forgot to bring, back to the UK....thank you so much.
What a perfect holiday home The Beach House is! We visited the last week of the summer holidays. The weather was unkind to us, but the house wasn't! So much to do, beautifully set out, very clean and tidy. Very good house for children. Lots of family fun and games.
Great location, we only used the car once in 7 days. Supermarket a few minutes walk, beautiful beach no more than 10 mins slow walk with children. The beach and front are lovely and filled with all sorts of eateries, fun and games.
Berck town, has everything you need, and a wonderful market.
The house is set away from it all despite being so close.
We have been to a few holiday homes in France, and this is our favourite. We hope to visit again soon.
We've just returned from a fantastic week at The Beach House which is within 5 minutes walk of the beach/town and yet still situated in a quiet location of Berck. Everything we needed was available in the very well equipped property and was maintained to a very high standard. The property suited all ages from age 5 to 76 and we spent hours in the big garden to enjoy the likes of cricket and bat & ball when we weren't on the beautiful sandy beaches.
The rooms throughout the property are large and spacious and furnished to a high standard. When we return to this area of France, we will definitely stay here again.
Luxury. We go to Berck every other year for the kite festival and this is the best accommodation we've had in 6 visits. The bathroom is larger than one apartment we had in the past.
Plenty of everything, we had 10 friends over for a meal and no worries about running out of chairs or plates etc. Well appointed kitchen.
We'll be returning.
