The location is great really close to the beach which is beautiful, wide and sandy. The house itself is in a quiet spot surrounded by pine trees, great for relaxing at the end of the day. Beautifully renovated with great facilities we had everything we needed. Sophie made us feel very welcome and there was lots of information about things to do. Excellent boulangerie a few minutes walk away and a great seafood restaurant on the seafront. We would definitely come again!
I had a short break at this lovely place this week - the location is ideal and the bungalow is well equipped with a great open plan living space. Sophie could not have been more helpful. I will definitely be going back again but for a week next time.
We were looking for somewhere not too far from Calais as it was our first time taking our dog (Golden Retriever) abroad. We went during half term, two adults, two teenage children and the dog.
Sophie and Alain's house looked great in the pictures and did not disappoint when we arrived after a 40 minute drive from Calais. The booking process is easy for a limited French speaker like myself. Everything was clearly explained and arrival was well coordinated. The house itself is fantastic. It has been decorated and fitted out to a very high standard and was meticulously clean. Sophie and Alain are on hand to answer any questions about the house or make suggestions for places to walk, visit and eat. There are no hidden costs with renting this property, linens, towels and utilities are all included. It's well equipped for an enjoyable stay - modern cooker, fridge freezer, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and ironing facilities. There was free wifi and best of all for the children an X-box!!!!
The garden is enclosed so we had no worries about our dog disappearing either.
Locally there is a vast sandy beach which stretches for miles in either direction. It's 200m from the house too! The Esplanade of Ste. Cécile is also about 200m away with a few places to eat and a small convenience store. The village of Camiers has a larger supermarket and the even bigger hypermarkets are about 10 mins away near Etaples. The house is well situated for visits to LeTouquet, Boulogne and Etaples. All about 20 mins drive. There's lots more to do besides, but we were reluctant to stray too far from that house and that beach! Thank you Sophie and Alain for a terrific first stay - I am sure we will be back.
We've been coming to France and staying with Sophie and Alain at their other property since 2012, when Sophie told us they had some new properties close to the beach we decided to give them a try. I have to say we weren't disappointed.
The house itself has been renovated to a really high standard, its bright, fabulously clean, cheerful and perfect for a family holiday,
We took our dogs who are always welcomed by Sophie and Alain, they absolutely loved it, even the cold showers outside the house to wash the sand off! Truly dog friendly, thank you!
The house is really close to the beach and the shops and a few restaurants are well within walking distance. Its a lovely part of France, easy to reach, lots of fabulous places nearby and the weather was super. The beach is clean, quiet and the water is warm, what more could you ask for! We will be back!
