Relaxing short stay at a beautiful countryside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We and our friend's family have just spent a truly great few days in Gite Les Pres Billard. The cottage is both modern and full of charms and the surrounding farm beautifully tranquil.

The cottage is located within easy access by road to Le Touquet, Boulogne-Sur-Mer and a number of other lovely seaside towns. After a day's visit, our toddlers and us would enjoy walking around the farm and greeting the residential horses and cows, or simply sitting down with one of the many games or books provided by the hosts.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thanks, again, to Mr and Mrs Lebeurre for their warm hospitality. They have been really approachable, have answered all our requests and gone to great length to ensure that we had a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

The only pity of our trip was that it was too short.

What a find! We look forward to come back again in the future.

Lots of love,

Owner's Response: Hi Yingying, Thank you so much for your appreciation about Les Prés Billard. We were very happy to welcome you in our property with your nice family. I hope you enjoy all you have made and with 5 days to appreciate your land, it was perhaps not enough. But it is the way to come again. You have more to discover. All the best for you and your family and also Stella's family. With all my gratitude Myreille

A lovely stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here in August. We arrived early but that wasn't a problem - nothing was a problem for the wonderful hosts. They go out of their way to help and advise. Our grandaughter had several pony rides on Peter the Pony, without needing to ask, and loved it! The Gite is very well equipped and comfortable, and has plenty of space with three very good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. A nice lounge and dining area with TV (could only find a couple of English news channels out of 1600!) and a selection of books and magazines and childrens board games.

It is close enough to town for a walk to the square, but drive if you're going shopping. Town is small and not much is open in the evenings past about 9pm in the way of bars so stock up!

Lots to do within 20 minutes drive - Le Touquet, Boulogne, Montruille sur mer are all worth a day out, and so is St Omer on market day (saturday. We went on our way back to Calais to kill time, and it gets you into Calais without using the A16). Make use of the packs of maps if you like a walk - they are very good and easy to follow, and state on the front how difficult they are. Our grandaughter managed a 'medium' 9Km no problem, including a pub stop, so there's no excuse!

I would definitely go again - its so easy to get to it would be daft not to.

A nice gite but pictures are deceptive

  • 3 of 5

A nice gite in lovely surroundings and well placed to see the area. However the gite is split in two and this is not shown on the pictures.The rental is not for the full building.but all the upstairs and half of the downstairs with the garden divided by a fence. Struggled to get hot water for 7 people and lack of fixtures such as wardrobes and no mirrors in bedrooms. Only 2 toilets - not what stated in facilities description. No AC and no firewood. Also not complete price as stated as you will be charged for electric. Owners were helpful and our children loved the ponies. We felt the place could have been cleaner (lots of dust). Would probably not stay in this gite again but would return to the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Janine Burgess and your familiy, I am very surprised with your appreciation. You were so happy in our gite !!! When we see all our hosts who want to come again an again, I can imagine what is the problem ; Perhaps you have not taken the time to read the descriptions on Abritel. On the website Abritel It is written that the cottage adjoining the cottage Les Ecuries des Prés Biilard.but the two gites are completely independant and the fence is in hazel tress . We have no mirror in the bedrooms but in the bathrooms. Your garden was all the property of two acres included the river, the lake where your children ,are thrown bread for the fishes and ducks,. You have an entrance directly to walk in the wood, the meadows with Peter and Dixi and a garden closed your gite with a fence of flowers and the barbecue ! You have decided to arrive only on monday and we change our program (It was my husband' s birthday) )to welcome you and your family. You have also decided to welcome your mother and we were very pleased for you but it was not written on the contract ! Of course in August we not propose you the woodfire !!!! If you have rain in your stay, we just can t do anything ! On your contract, It was well specified you have to pay for electricity you have used and you have signed it !!! How can you say you are not forewarned ! Yes, you have choised the homework and it was very dirty ! I Our gites are clean and you find everything Ok at your arrival ! Also, because when the doors are open, you can have more dust inside. We offer free your children to jump on the pony (just one and not ponies !) and I remember It was enjoyable moments together ! We meet us every day and you had all possibility to inform us of this. So, I wish teh best for you and your family and hope if you come again in our area to welcome you. Kind wishes

Un cadre idyllique, un accueil chaleureux...

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances de rêve!

Le gîte est très confortable et ne manque de rien.

Il est situé au bord d'une rivière, et entouré d'une prairie.

Tous les matins, notre grand bonheur était de saluer Peter, le petit Poney, qui venait nous dire bonjour par la fenêtre du salon!

De quoi oublier totalement le quotidien, tout en étant situé à 3 minutes à peine de la ville la plus proche.

Les propriétaires sont adorables: nous avons été accueilli comme des rois.

Ils n'ont pas manqué de nous dispenser de bons conseils pour les endroits à visiter aux alentours et étaient toujours disponibles en cas de question.

Nous avons bénéficié d'un temps magnifique, ce qui nous a permis d'aller à la plage située à moins d'une demi-heure du gîte.

Nous n'avons qu'une envie: y retourner au plus vite!

Charmant huisje op prachtig domein

  • 4 of 5

Hebben een fantastische tijd gehad hier. Myreille is een fantastische host die ons super vriendelijk onthaald heeft. Huisje is charmant, maar vooral het domein is indrukwekkend en leuk om rond de wandelen. Het huisje op zich was OK. Enkel de leefruimte voor een huisje van 6 tot 8 mensen was wel heel beperkt.

Un lieu idéal pour partir en famille.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'extraordinaires vacances en famille au gîte des Prés Billard. On ne peut trouver d'accueil plus chaleureux et souriant que celui que nous avons reçu. Nous avons apprécié les conseils donnés sur les activités dans la région. Il y a de nombreuses choses à faire et la mer n'est pas loin pour pouvoir également profiter de la plage. La maison a tous les équipements nécessaires pour passer des vacances sereines avec de jeunes enfants. Le domaine est un havre de paix. Nous recommandons cette location à tous.

Owner's Response: Merci à vous pour votre gentille appréciation qui fait suite à votre séjour aux Prés Billard. Nous avons été très heureux de vous y accueillir en famille. C'est un endroit idéal pour se reposer et admirer cette belle nature qui nous entoure. La rivière offre de merveilleuses surprises aux enfants qui y cherchent des trésors, font des barrages dans son lit peu profond et observent le cours de l'eau en suivant leur indice flotter tranquillement vers le pont. L'étang permet d'observer les canards, les poules d'eau et foulques, les carpes voraces du pain qu'on leur donne, les libellules aux ailes d'un bleu profond. La forêt est aussi un lieu magique où tout peut s'y inventer. Parfois, si le silence se fait, on peut observer les chevreuils qui viennent paître dans nos prairies. La mer n'est pas loin comme vous le dites et nous avons cette chance d'être à égale distance de la côte Est avec Wimereux, Wissant et les deux Caps et de la côte Ouest avec Hardelot et Le Touquet entre autres. Pour celui qui préfère randonner, de très nombreuses ballades nous entourent avec des paysages très variés, ceux que le Boulonnais est capable de faire découvrir. C'est donc avec grand plaisir que nous échangeons nos découvertes avec nos hôtes car pour nous aux Prés Billard c'est le rapport humain qui est le plus important. Nous espérons ainsi avoir le grand plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau pour un long ou un moyen séjour chez nous. Encore merci d'être venus nous rencontrer et Belle route pour vous quatre.
