We had a beautiful week in France with wonderful warm hosts where nothing was too much trouble. We were a party of grandparents, adult children and 21 month old.
The Gite was very well equipped, it had everything we needed in addition to a games room and bikes. Some days croissants were delivered to the door which was an added bonus. The house is a great base to explore. We took the train to Paris (1 hour) and drove to Lille and various other places round about.
A quiet and relaxing holiday home. Thank you.
Good weather, that's about all that can be said. Riviere is a small village at the edge of the Somme region in France. Jean Claude is an exceptional host along with his wife Marie. The Gite is comfortable. The gardens are superb, certainly the two dogs liked it'
A pretty gite with lovely antique furniture and various trinkets to make our stay perfect. We loved the games and numerous facilities to keep us entertained when we were relaxing after our travels. The gite had verything we needed and more. The hosts were amazing, friendly, helpful and kindly left us a delicious breakfast, eggs and other goodies some days too. The location was very peaceful but close enough to everything we needed to see and do during our stay. The gorgeous little dog was delightful and so cute! We will definitely be coming back!
Having stayed here before and loving the property and location we decided to visit again this year. We don't generally revisit the same place twice as there are so many areas to see and explore, however, this property is exceptional and the owners are such wonderful people. I have reviewed this property before following our visit in 2015 and everything I said then remains the same today. Arras is nearby and is truly beautiful and everything you need is available a short drive away. There is much to see and do locally and the house and gardens are so relaxing and wonderful to spend time in. Marie-Madeline and Jean-Claude are exceptional hosts and they do their utmost to ensure that guests are made welcome and that their every need is catered for. I can recommend this house whole-heartedly and we spent the last 4 days of our holiday in the caravan in the grounds and I will be reviewing that separately.
Wonderfully friendly welcome. Great location and facilities at gite de la Fountaine. Ideal accommodation if you are looking to visit the WWI cemeteries and memorials.
