Northern France region
Pas de Calais
Many who enter this area of France often drive through but rarely explore. Those of us who have spent a little time here have discovered a much slower pace of life, excellent restaurants and many places of interest to visit.
Find out what it is like to drive in 50s Britain. The roads here are rarely busy and you can find yourself wondering, Wheres all the traffic gone?
The area is ideal for cycling, walking, fishing, horse-riding, golfing and photographic holidays; or if you prefer just chilling out with the occasional excursion.
Just 45 minutes from Calais and 20 minutes south of St. Omer, at Thiembronne we can offer you a choice of two modern well-equipped 3-bedroom cottages in a beautiful country setting. Relax and enjoy the countryside and take the odd excursion. For example you might visit the museum at the historical site of Agincourt (or as it is called in France; Azincourt) or visit the underground city that could accommodate about 3,000 people.

We stayed here over christmas week and couldnt of enjoyed christmas anymore. My children loved their bedrooms, they were so roomy. I loved going upstairs, it had the wow factor !! Downstairs was lovely to, kitchen was lovely, had all the equipment needed. Even supplied washing powder for the washing machine and dishwasher tablets. We went to the playroom with the children (age 14, 12 and 5) to play pool quite often and the owners made sure it was warm in there with the wood fire. The only downside was having know internet all week, but this couldnt be helped as the owners had just took over the place and were waiting for it to be connected. We couldnt contact anyone over xmas as was relying on this, so didnt top up phoned before we left england. The views from the cottage are gorgeous, and so pieceful. Plenty of supermarkets about. Just a little tip, shop in Aldi, so much cheaper in there and only up the road. Overall we would love to come back and will always remember our christmas in France, one of our best christmases ever !!

"We had a lovely time - very nice owners & comfortable gites with everything we needed."
We booked both gites in March for a family reunion and had a lovely time. The gites were warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. The new owners took over a few months ago and were very nice, and very helpful. They have also updated the internet and the connection was great. I'd definitely recommend this place - There are plenty of shops and hypermarkets around, and we even had time to go across the border into Belgium to stock up on cheap cigs and wine! We also managed to BBQ on the patio on a rare sunny day in March which the kids loved .The meat here is such good quality and the fresh prawns such good value. We enjoyed the village bar on one of our nights and will definitely be booking again!

"great time had"
Lovely house. Clean and tidy with plenty for the 2 kids to do despite in raining every second day which I was assured wasn't the norm. Ended the holiday at the village's Bastille Day celebrations.
All in a good time had by all.

"quiet getaway with friends"
From arrival to departure we have no complaints about this gite. The hosts were extremely helpful and there if you wanted anything. The gite is equipped with everything and the hosts had left fresh bread, wine and cheese. The lounge area is a little small for 6 adults but the bedrooms are a good size. Xtra facilities are in abundance but did not make full use of them - table tennis, darts, table football, pool to name a few. Would recommend to families although it is a little quiet if you are looking for a bar or nightlife. The bar in the vilage was closed when we got there at 9.30 pm on a Saturday night

"fantastic gite in a lovely area with great hosts"
This is our 3rd visit to the gite, we love staying there. The gite is about 40 minutes drive from Calais and easy to get to, on arrival we have always been made welcome by Geoff and Irene and there is also a welcome of bread,wine and cheese. the gite has everything you could need and is always clean and welcoming. There is a patio area outside each gite with a BBQ and a large table and chairs with umbrella which we took advantage of as the weather was fantastic that week. the town of Thiembronne is a short walk away but for shops you can travel to Fauqembergue about 5 mins drive away, there are 2 supermarkets,and an array of other shops, The surrounding area is great, fabulous market at Hesdin and lots to see and do. I cannot recommend these gites highly enough.We definately will be going back again!

"Peace and quiet in the country, yet close enough to sea and shopping"
Good price, not too far to travel, friendly reception by helpful owners, games room for the kids (4 teenagers), not to mention the fab dvd collection freely available to us. Basis for travel to various seaside places, a day trip to Canterbury(!), Euro shopping centre at Calais.
Surprised by the peace of the country. Would go back.
