Great family holiday house
Amazing tennis court
Well equipped house
Would highly recommend.
Fabulous for a 4-ball
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay recently. Jacques was the perfect owner, very prompt to reply with our various questions before the trip, waiting for us to arrive and then left us to enjoy his house and gardens, before popping in on our last morning to say goodbye. The house is beautifully kept, very clean and has everything you could think of to enjoy your stay, from open fire, to bbq, to games and much more. We went on a 4-day gents (4 men) golfing long weekend, but I have 2 children and will definitely speak with the wife about coming out, as it would work amazingly well for a family, or even two families as there is lots of space, both inside and out. Honestly, I have not a bad word to say, it was fantastic value for money and we would not hesitate in recommending.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
Firstly, anyone who has fears of the recent 'migrant crisis' spoiling their holiday, please don't worry. We were so worried by the news reports before we left we even considered cancelling our holiday, but I'm so pleased we didn't - we had a fantastic time and didn't see any trouble at any point of the holiday.
The house itself, as described by others is just perfect for a large group, it had an ideal layout for our party with it's various bedrooms and bathrooms and has everything you need to have a relaxing time. The place was spotless when we went in, it had been thoroughly cleaned throughout and everything is provided, there's no need to take anything other than clothes and toiletries. There's a beautiful garden with lots available for entertaining both adults and children, with a big trampoline, table tennis, a bbq, plenty of tables and chairs and a full size tennis court.
The surrounding area is also beautiful, the nearest beach - Wissant is just a short drive away through rolling fields and countryside. We were unlucky with the weather but still managed to find plenty to do every day, from driving to Belgium (just an hour away) to going exploring nearby cities and other beaches.
And to top it off, the owner is such a lovely man, always on hand to answer any questions we had instantly, but never intruding or interfering in any way.
All in all this was a great holiday and I'd highly recommend it for any kind of group.
Just returned from this beautiful house with my family of 4 adults and 3 children. Plenty of space for all with wonderful outside space including the tennis court, trampoline and table tennis. Horses at the bottom of the private garden was enjoyed by my daughter. The house is very comfortable and could suit 10 people no problem however the twin room is quite small. Plenty of hot water all day and WIFI good but satellite TV only has one English Channel - World News. The kitchen is well stocked but oven could be better. Lots of towels, wood for open fire and board games to enjoy but are French as well as the books and DVDs. Location: Great with supermarket a few minutes drive away and the town of Guines has more to offer but resturants were closed in the evening but we did stay out of season. The owners live on site speak little English but are very helpful but allow you to have complete privacy if you wish. We visited Le Touquet beach and Boulouge which are both less than an hours drive, well worth a visit and Paris and Bruge a little further but we run out of time. Overall we had a fantastic time and will be back again next year. Sad to be home😢
Everything you want from a french house,we where a large family of seven and there was plenty of room for every one,if you have more than two couples it my be a bit of a squeeze as there is only two double rooms with double beds,if you want to be picky the beds are a bit hard and the pillows are a bit different to ours,a large tea pot would have been handy for a lot of people other than that everything was perfect,great area for visiting brugge and many more things to do,tennis court,bikes,ping pong ,tourist office as i called it as it was full of info on what to see and do all supplied by the owner which live in the next door in the grand house.
Fantastic holiday cottage with everything you need
Superb holiday cottage with absolutely everything you could possibly need including extra bedding, towels, laundry supplies, everything!
The bedrooms are well spread out which was great to get peace from the kids and the snorers!
The trampoline and pingpong table kept the kids happy in the private self contained garden and we had use of the brand new tennis court in the lovely main garden (part of the owners manor house)!
There were bikes for all and a cupboard full of puzzles, games and baby playthings. There was a whole room for coats, shoes and information leaflets.
We were 25 minutes from several really lovely beaches (wissant for exploring and laid back) and Boulogne (good for kids with things to do and play-park on beach).
20 minutes from calais but in the middle of fields with ponies in the garden.
The town is 5 minutes drive with everything you could want, banks, supermarket, restaurants etc.
There is also an adventure treetop place around the corner but we ran out of time before we could visit it!
Cannot wait to return, perfect for all units!
