While there IS an internal fireplace, we ask that it not be used - for Insurance reasons.

Further details outdoors

The gite has it's own, independent patio area, outdoor furniture and basic BBQ equipment.

Parking is off-road, in a large, shared driveway.

The village lends itself to leisurely walks, as does the forest that's "just up the hill".

There are many places of historical interest within 35 mins' drive in most directions.

Northern France region

Pas-de-Calais is oft-overlooked by the Brits, who typically hit Calais and "pedal-to-the-metal" to Paris, yet the area has SO much to offer... beaches, aquariums, golf, equestrian activities, famous battlefields (Azincourt, Fressin, Crécy, Vimy Ridge, The Somme), V1 and V2 Rocket sites & museums, walled cities (Boulogne, Montreuil, brocantes, hundreds of Antiquities stores, cosy restaurants and side-walk cafes, hunting, shooting, cycling, walking...


"The Village that Time Forgot" !

A true slice of ancient rural France, quaint houses and quiet, "laid-back" life-styles, yet within easy "striking distance" of the English Channel and all the attractions that Pas-de-Calais has to offer.
