"Lovely gite and lovely owners"
The gite was spotless and has all amenities for a great holiday. There's no traffic nearby so kids could play freely or you can relax in peace. The gite is very different with an upstairs arrangement that's very original
Its rural location is great for peace and quiet but its within a short drive to beautiful beaches and to near by Boulogne where there's a great choice of things to do and places to eat.
Mark & Collette live in the nearby Manoir and are very friendly, welcoming and bi lingual

"Gem in the North of France"
We arrived using the excellent directions provided on a sunny Friday afternoon. The welcome was lovely and friendly and we settled quickly after the journey down. The location of the cottage allowed us to travel to the nearby beaches at Hardelot and St Cecille as well as visit the nearby towns. The cottage was comfortable and quiet and ideal for our three children (11, 8 and 6 years old). Outside they could run around safely in the gardens. The owners were brilliant and we were made to feel at home. I would recommend the cottage for a break in Northern France

"Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area."
I stayed in the cottage with my husband and three teenage children. We had a very enjoyable holiday in this beautiful area of France. Hardelot beach is a delight and the nearby town of Samer is very pretty. There is a very nice coastal walk from Cap Gris nez to Cap Blanc nez which offers stunning views of the coastline. The cottage is well equipped and extremely clean and comfortable, it has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The private courtyard is a perfect sun trap and the grounds of the Manoir are gorgeous. The owners are lovely, they were very welcoming and very helpful. We very much enjoyed meeting them and staying in their beautiful cottage.

"The best French holiday we have ever had"
If your looking for a little piece of heaven then look no further then the cottage at Manoir le Fort. The hosts are such a lovely couple, friendly & genuinely nice. The cottage has a very homely feel with everything you could possibly need and also very clean & well presented. We loved the grounds especially the pool which has its own resident Heron. The Manoir itself is a fantastic piece of history, beautifully restored - we are envious!. We have been to France many times - But this is the place we will return to knowing we will be welcome, knowing we enjoyed our stay very much indeed. Thank you Mark & Colette- you are both a credit to the hospitality & tourist industry. We will see you again.
