Northern France region

This part of France, which is so close to England, is famous for its beaches and golf. However very few know of the enchanting towns and stunning Picardy countryside that is to be found just a short distance inland.

The Manoir is less than an hour's drive from Calais, fifteen minutes from the beaches of Le Touquet and two and a half hours from Paris.

Montreuil-sur-Mer

The house lies one mile outside Montreuil, on the edge of a very small village with the village green in front and the Mairie opposite. Montreuil is an ancient fortified town contained within enormous walls. The ramparts form a wonderful walk with tremendous views. The town has hardly been touched for two centuries and was famously Victor Hugo's inspiration for "Les Miserables". Small shops, cafes, bars and restaurants are plentiful and there is an excellent market on Saturday mornings in the main square.

In the 1920's and 1930's Le Touquet was one of the most glamorous holiday destinations in Europe, frequented by royalty, the rich and famous. Today this is reflected in the grand hotels, casino, championship golf courses and innumerable restaurants. In the bustling town centre you can find many high quality clothes shops and mouth watering patisseries, traiteurs, poissoneries and bucheries - a delight for any gastronome. The huge sandy beaches provide a welcome tranquility. Aside from golf, the visitor can be entertained at the sailing centre, two equestrian centres and even a sand-yachting school.

Beyond Montreuil lies the beautiful folding countryside of the 'Seven Valleys' region with its charming small villages and bustling market towns. There are many walks and the rivers provide for fishing as well as some exciting canoeing. For the adventurous, Paris is close enough for a day trip.

"Fantastic and comfortable family home in a great location"

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Le Manoir Nord and would highly recommend a stay there. The manoir was perfect for a large group and we had many a happy meal around the lovely glass table outside. We also rediscovered the joy of tennis!

"Great family venue"

Lovely big, well kept and furnished house with plenty of grounds, children and grandchildren loved it. We had a good week there.Would have to repeat the comment on the earlier review that the en suite… More

Glad to report that the en suite bathroom has since been updated with new tiles, taps, heated towel rail, mirrors and wc. But the 1970's cast-iron bath stays as it is fast becoming "interesting" and is still as new! Note that the other two bathrooms are entirely modern.

"Great place"

Very good spacious house with attractive gardens and tennis court. Well furnished with Sky and wifi access. Ensuite bathroom could do with some updating. Good restaurants and several golf courses in surrounding area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will probably revisit.
