He will arrange to meet you on arrival to show you round, and generally make sure your holiday runs smoothly and is contactable in the event of any problems.
About this location
The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region
Pas de Calais is a farming area and this becomes apparent as you drive through the countryside and see the vastness of the land used for agriculture. The history of the area is in abundance: Montrueil-ser-Mer (15 mins drive) which is a fortified town made famous by Victor Hugo and Les Miserables. Visit Arras (1 hour drive) with its history and lovely squares or follow the history of the First and Second World War sites and museums throughout the area. The battlefield at Agincourt is 20 minutes away. The long sandy beaches of the Cote d'Opale and the resort of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage are only 30 mins away. This is famous for its boutique shops and race track and is the resort visited by Parisians.
Further afield is Paris of course and a day trip is easily done using the quite motorways . It takes just over 2 hours to get their using the toll roads which are the quickest way to travel in France as they are not congested like UK motorways.
There are usually markets every day throughout the region and Brocantes (car boot sales) throughout the summer. Nearby Hesdin market (Thursday mornings) is particularly good. Baurainville is another small town with a Wednesday market and range of shops. It is only 5 minutes away
Hesdin is a pretty market town with the rivers of the Canche and Ternoise meandering through the town. A bustling and colourful market is held on Thursday mornings covering the town square and side streets. Hesdin has a wealth of history and many superb restaurants and cafes. The tourist information office is on the main square. Bikes can be hired in Hesdin square during April to September.
There is a historic chateau and winery at nearby Fressin.
Contes is a quiet peaceful village with its own fishing lake and Jasmin cottage is just 2 minutes walk from Hesdin Forest for walking or cycling. There is a bakery and shop just 3 minutes walk away.
Activities locally available are horseriding, fishing, canoeing, walking and cycling.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your charming mother-in-law. We are glad that all of you including your dog, enjoyed your holiday.
It is in the autumn and spring when the days are warm but the nights are cold that there was problem with condensation. We have now fitted a built in dehumidifier which has solved the condensation problem completely and are currently making further improvements to ensure that our guests have a comfortable stay eg we have just had an extractor fan fitted in the bathroom to reduce the water vapour getting into the cottage.

On arrival gite was not to standard of cleanliness expected and had to clean before using anything1. carpet runner full of dog hairs plus dog hairs all around the gite2. everywhere was unswept with di… More
Thank you for sending me a copy of your concerns directly. I was shocked and dismayed at your comments. I rang you immediately I received it to express my apologies that the standard of the cottage did not meet your expectations and explain what had happened that particular weekend. I went over each of your points in detail and trust we have resolved this amicably.
You told me that you enjoyed your holiday and said that although you had the local contact number you had not wanted to wait in for someone to come. I send guests a list of local contact details as well as our own, specifically so that any problems can be fixed straight away. If you had simply told us when you phoned on arrival, I could have arranged to send someone and any problems would have been rectified within one or two hours at the longest, including a replacement toaster.
Also your concerns with regard to the property being for sale; we are always given plenty of notice of any viewings and nobody would come to view without your knowledge and full agreement and the sign down could have been removed.
The person who looks after the property for us is extremely efficient and all our other guests have been very complimentary about the standard of presentation and cleaning. In peak season when there is a quick change over it is not possible to check that everything works e.g. the toaster. The toilet seat was not actually broken but designed to clip off for ease of cleaning.
We want all our guests to have a comfortable and stress free holiday so I am not sure of your reasoning in waiting till you got home to complain, when everything could have been rectified straight away if only you had communicated with us at the time.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your break at Jasmin Cottage. The weather in April in Northern France can be very warm and we are pleased you were able to enjoy the garden. The blossom on the pear trees is lovely at this time of year.

"Quiet location, nearby towns, country, nice walks"
Comfortable compact cottage, with lots to see in local villages, towns and countryside. Nice walks to nearby villages & Hesdin Forest. Nice big garden/small field to exercise the dog before going out in the car. Friendly locals who are happy to cope with our dodgy French

"Second time round and keeps getting better and better ."
We had our second visit too Jasmin cottage and and each time we come back is like a breath of fresh air ! Barbara + Ray have improved even more and more with many new additions , BBQ area and period lighting , and kitchen hobs etc . We where greeted with the usual fanfare ! sweets for the children ,wine , eggs etc ! And it did not take long to slip back into the peaceful and tranquil surroundings but with the classic slip in to the tourist surroundings if needed ! The new swiming pool (water slide )and bowling is amazing ! with soon to be added on more fun toboggan run ! We went to the local châteaux of Fressin ,and a new beach for us Merlimont plage with an amazing WW11 bunker blown up on the beach. We also visited for our third time Saint Omer and checked out the amazing public gardens and animal farm ,this town has it all and is getting really up market with LOADS of bars tobacs fashion stores and even Chinese restaurants. Also there is boat trips and a must I here is the trip to the famous brewery ! All in all its a fantastic place ,where the guy who owns the local bakery actually comes to work on his horse ! see you next year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, thanks for the lovely review. Glad you enjoyed the new pool in Hesdin. We loved the photos which wonderfully illustrate just how much there is to do in this part of Pas de Calais. Look forward to seeing you and the family next year.
