About Alastair +Emma Buchanan

I am semi retired and live in Kent but spend as much time in France as i can ,as my two daughters live there.

Alastair +Emma Buchanan purchased this house in 1999

Why Alastair +Emma Buchanan chose Somme

St Valery always appealed to me ,for it's proximity to England and the also the charm of this medieavel town with its historic connections to England. The house used to be a cafe in the time of Jules Verne who lived across the bay ,and the romantic thought that one of Frances greatest writers might have got some of his ideas sitting over a glass of wine in this house, clinched the deal!

What makes this house unique

The big plus with this house is it,s size ! So it is great for large family get togethers, or by using just one floor it resorts back to a house suitable for smaller parties. It is within walking distance to shops and restaaurnts, and the seafront is a stones throw away .so for me not having to drive everywhere was a big attraction.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Arrived late and found the house well situated within a stones throw of the sea front,plenty of space in this large house with a wonderful second floor for the kids,and a games room area .Very comfortable and no need to take the car out as all amenities were within walking distance ,we have booked for next year as we a slightly smaller family this time, and their two tier pricing for smaller parties up to eight makes it very cost effective.

Great place to stay for a February break in France

  • 4 of 5

Smashing spacious house, full of character which was warm and cosy on chilly February days. It is very convenient for all age groups to reach the attractions of Saint Valery on foot. Even the vet is situated next door so completing the pet passport for our terrier couldn't have been easier. The listing for this property was very accurate and the contact with Alistair prior to departure was excellent. We would certainly recommend both the property and St Valery.

Très agréable maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions 9 personnes à passer un we prolongé à la Valerianne et nous avons bcp apprécié la chaleur de la maison ainsi que son confort. La déco est agréable, la cuisine bien fournie, la literie de qualité et Alastair disponible lorsque besoin. Quelques essuie mains et savon de base seraient peut être à rajouter mais c'est un détail, dans l'ensemble la maison est parfaite, bien située et confortable. A noter toutefois qu'il n'y a que 2 salles de bain pour toute la maison qui est bien située, vaste et chaleureuse. Je recommande sans hésitation cette propriété où je reviendrai avec plaisir

A charming house, perfectly situated.

  • 4 of 5

The house is delightful, very well equipped and perfectly situated. It is clean and comfortable and very close to a couple of excellent restaurants. There were rather a large number of instructional notices, which were a bit off-putting and I suspect that the steep staircases wouldn't suit families with small children or the less-able visitor, but our group of fit, not-so-young adults had a splendid time and really loved the accommodation.

Séjour à La Valerienne

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison idéalement située à Saint Valéry (proche des commerces, de la mer...). L'équipement est très complet, il y a même un billard au sous sol.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour.

Marvellous Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house , lots of space , well equipped , clean and tidy on arrival , and full of charm and character! Even though there is no garden , the sea front is only a couple of minutes away as shops and restaurants . St Valery has changed so much , with much more to do and see .

The Family Goutin .

Superbe sejour!!

Superbe maison , beacoup d'espace , et propre quand nous sommes arrives , avec plein de charme et de caractere , bien equipee , meme s'il n'y a pas de jardin . Le front de mer est seulement a quelques pas , La Valerianne est bien situee , proche des magasins et restaurants . St Valery a bien changer depuis quelques annees , il y a plus d'activites a faire et a voir .

great :-)

  • 4 of 5

Magnificently spacious accommodation. Excellently placed for walking around the town and walking back from the restaurants. Not TOO far from the free car park. Very accommodating Owner when advised of accidental damage.

The only down side was we found it was very dusty - especially in the bedrooms, which may be due to us being very early in the season, plus the top floor was a bit of a climb up and down for the younger and older members of the party who needed to go to the toilet in the middle of the night :)
