We spent five nights – three families (6 Adults and 8 kids) at Emmanuelle Mansions. Had a great holiday. We had day trips to Paris, Amiens and Le Treport - including ice skating up the Eiffel Tower and sea swimming for some of the kids on New Years Eve: Lovely to see Egrets on the lake every day. Easy shopping (Patisserie, Boulangerie, Charcuterie, small supermarket etc.) in Aumale, and Intermarche not far.
Houses suited us well, with one family in Hidden Gem and two in Ebenezer – worked well to have a bathroom per family, and we made good use of the covered play area (football) and the table tennis room. We all used the big kitchen / dining area in Ebenezer for everybody. Good big saucepans made it easy to cook for the large group, and plenty of fridge space and worktops. Good substantial sofas for kids with screens, and space for family games too.
House was lovely and warm – thermostat was set to 18, but felt more like 21. We liked the idea of a fire, but there was no need. Didn’t do much washing, but what we did dried quickly and easily.
