Super endroit !

  • 4 of 5

Idéal pour une petite virée entre copains ou en famille. Un lieu convivial avec sa grande table et son salon avec feu ouvert. Situé au calme, à deux pas de la mer et des centres commerciaux et restaurants. Des propriétaires sympathiques et accueillants. Nous sommes rentrés enchantés !

Another fantastic stay with M. et Mme Honore

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with Monsieur et Madame Honore three times now for one to two weeks at a time. We love the quiet, historic setting and the beautiful well-equipped accommodation. The house worked well for all members of the family from my elderly grandfather who enjoyed the accessibility of ground floor bedroom and bath to our six year-old daughter who loved the children's bedroom under the rafters of the second floor. During each visit, the Honores have gone out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They helped us purchase fresh sea food from a local vendor, lent us bicycles, hosted us for hors d'oeuvres in their back yard and even took our daughter for a pony ride around the yard.

The location was perfect for us with easy access to the highway and to the nearby villages of Wimereux and Wimille. The surrounding countryside and oceanview roads and trails were great places for running and walking. Everything we needed was within a 5 minute drive from the boulangerie to the grocery store to the beach. In addition the entire Cote d'Opale was easily accessible.

We highly recommend a stay in this very pleasant vacation home.

Heerlijk verblijf in Géraldine.

  • 5 of 5

Wij werden (hoewel veel te vroeg aangekomen) zeer gastvrij ontvangen en verwend met eigengemaakte jam en brioche van Mme. Honoré. We waren met 6 volwassenen en 3 kleine kinderen. Alle ruimte. Huis is zeer compleet ingericht. Er zijn twee huizen: Géraldine en Hélène, vernoemd naar de dochters van het echtpaar. Wij hadden huis Géraldine. Hoewel eind oktober/begin november: prachtig zonnig weer. Onze kleinkinderen hebben genoten van de paarden, schommels en glijbaan. Alles is dichtbij: bakker, supermarkten, strand, Boulogne, Cap Gris Nez, strand Wimereux. Heerlijke omgeving. Zeer aan te bevelen. Ga ook naar Nausicaa in Boulogne, heel bijzonder.

Prachtig vakantieverblijf

  • 5 of 5

Vorig weekend hebben wij een heerlijke tijd gehad in dit mooie huis. Mooie locatie, en dito uitzicht. Twee erg ruime slaapkamers. Woonkamer is niet erg ruim (met 6 volwassenen en twee baby's), maar konden buiten zitten op terras en in tuin (met parasol). De woning is ingericht met smaak, maar kan me voorstellen dat het niet bij iedereen in de smaak valt (het is precies zo als op de foto's). Het was voor ons erg praktisch om drie badkamers te hebben en ook de afwasmachine is veel gebruikt. Rondom het huis woont een grote hond, dus misschien niet geschikt voor mensen met een hondenallergie (de hond blijft wel netjes buiten). Internet werkte, maar (waarschijnlijk door de dikke muren) niet overal even goed.

Een aanrader!

Très belle et spacieuse maison

  • 5 of 5

Vraiment une location à recommander!Sous un aspect extérieur moyen ,dés la porte ouverte nous réalisons qu'il s'agit d'un intérieur vraiment spacieux et bien fini.La pièce de séjour est bien meublée et la cuisine dispose de tous las appareils nécessaire.Et que dire des chambres avec chacune une salle d'eau:magnifique, c'est la première fois que nous trouvons un tel luxe? A l'extérieur une belle terrasse avec vue lointaine sur mer et un espace couvert permettant de garer 2 véhicules. Rien à redire
