Beautiful accommodation, perfect hosts and superb location.
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.
Merci Katy pour votre appréciation. Cela m'a fait vraiment plaisir de vous accueillir et je vais essayé d'améliorer mon anglais pour mieux communiquer.
Bonne continuation à toute la famille et peut être à une prochaine fois

Que de bons mots. Francine et Jean-Claude vous acceuil dans leur domaine, sans prétention et avec beaucoup de contact humain. Le gîte est tel que décrit. Très propre. La cuisine est très bien équipée. Nous y avons preparé tous nos repas sans problème. Il faut toutefois prendre soin de visiter le marché avant de se render au gîte. Les produits laitiers sont disponibles au comptoir de la ferme.
Nous étions dans la region pour visiter les champs de bataille de la Grande Guerre. La location du Gîte était parfaite. Au centre de tout.
J'ai déjà recommandé ce Gîte à mes amis. J'y retournerai sans hesitation si je me retrouve à nouveau dans la region.
A one week stay at a French Farmhouse.
Our Gite was in excellent condition with all the necessary amenities available to us. The location was ideal for the purpose of our visit which was to see the WW1 battlefields. Although it was a working farm it was extremely peaceful. The hosts were available if we required any help. The on-site dairy shop came in handy as the nearest supermarket was about 10 mins away.
Thanks once again to Francin and Jean Luc.

The property is situated in a small quaint village in the middle of nowhere but was in the best position to travel/explore around Northern France. The flat that these people provided was exceptional, it was spotlessly clean and it had every kitchen utensil that you needed. The flat is very spacious but beware of the low ceilings! Bed linen and towels were provided which was great. It is an active dairy farm and we were treated to a guided tour around the farm by Jean-Claude and was also treated to the delightful products that Francine made using their produce. I would highly recommend this property and it was very reasonable as well! Thank you for your generous hospitality and kindness.
We had a very nice 2-night stay at the farm and appreciate the beautiful pat of farm butter and fromage frais that Francine's daughter gave us on arrival. Unfortunately the farm shop wasn't open while we were there so we weren't able to stock up with any other goodies and we hadn't realised that the actual farm animals were elsewhere in the village so not accessible for our children to see, but as we only had a short stay there, it was not a problem. The accommodation had everything we needed and was very clean.
Je vous remercie pour votre appréciation. En effet nous étions mon mari et moi même en vacances à cette période là et ce sont nos enfants qui se sont occupés du gîte et de la ferme pendant notre absence . Il était possible cependant de visiter la ferme mais peut être aurons nous le plaisir de vous recevoir une prochaine fois et de vous faire partager notre métier d'agriculteur.
Merci et peut être à bientôt
Clean comfortable cottage with lots of little extras, including a custard tart on arrival.
Just mind don't bump your head on ceiling in places. Hosts were lovely but we had very little French and they had a little English so we got by.
Merci pour votre appréciation et nous espérons vous revoir prochainement. Peut être que votre français se sera amélioré sinon ce n'est pas grave on arrive toujours à communiquer.
