Northern France region

The region of Pas-de-Calais is certainly under rated by some but definitely merits an extended stay in an area which is rich in history and natural beauty. It has an astonishing legacy of beautiful residences, many feudal castles, walled cities, memorials to Napoleon, the well known second world war museum at Ambleteuse, and the English cemetery at Wimille. As a base, it offers easy links to Le Touquet, Paris and Bruges. Not least, its close proximity to the channel ports and Eurotunnel makes it a very worthwhile area to spend a relaxing holiday.

You will also discover that the Opal coast with its fine golden beaches, is perfect for young children and rock-pooling, with extensive sand dunes and the wonderful countryside of St Omer and Montreuil. The more adventurous will enjoy wind surfing and sand yachting at le Touquet

Boulogne sur Mer

The close by town of Wimille is located in the centre of "La cote d'Opale", which itself stretches from Calais to Berck sur mer and offers a wide diversity of coast line, sometimes sandy, sometime rocky and always fascinating. Further inland the country side is hilly and wooded.

The ancient walled town of Boulogne sur Mer is still France's largest fishing port and is only 5 km easy drive from the cottages. Visitors will enjoy the local fish market on the quay and a well spent day in Nausicca, the largest indoor sea museum in Europe. Wimereux (2,5 Km) is a great place for wind surfing and kite surfing.

For the country lovers, there are 2 golf courses close to the cottage (Wimereux 10 mins, Hardelot 25min), as well many country walks around the cottage.

"Great value for money spacious a lovely garden."

Stayed in this spacious gite for 2 weeks in August - for a very reasonable rental. (We first looked at static caravans, but to hire one large enough to sleep 5 of us comfortably, it would have cost us… More

"Exceeded what where already quite high expectations"

Was already expecting a nice gite from the pictures on both the owners website and others. What we couldn't have expected was the size of the gite and just how much there was in it.

A fully equipped kitches - the number of pots/pans etc was superb (including a kitchen mixer!!!), 10 of everything (in a 5 bed cootage I was expecting 5 of everything).

Rooms much larger than the pictures suggest - could quite easily be 3 bedroom and still have room to spare.

Washer, iron, ironing board, large maiden, means you don't need to take a whole host of clothes (unless you don't want to be domesticated - not a problem for me)

Very friendly family own the gite - although my slightly better than pigeon French was tested a few times as their English is pretty non-existant. Good fun though.

Drawbacks - none really although a DVD player may be handy. There is only French TV available for lazy evenings. No great problem though as we had a lap top with music and there is is free wi-fi meaning that english radion stations were also accessible. Nice to chill out with a book and a good red wine.

Boulogne is only 5 mins drive away but may well as be 50 since this is really country-fide.

Need to remember to get bread and pastries for morning the day before although the nearest hypermarkets (Auchan and a Carrefour) are within a couple of minutes drive and the bakers is in Wimille also less than 5 mins away if you fancy an early morning ride out.

Would definately return if looking to holiday in the area again.
