La Maison saint-Firmin
About the home
La Maison Saint-Firmin lies at the head of the historic 'Cave St Firmin', a cobbled street that was once the main thoroughfare into Montreuil. With the advent of the motor car, a gentler approach to the town was constructed, leaving the Cave St Firmin as a picturesque backwater with no traffic through. The house is within the rampart of the old town and a short walk from st Saulve and the cafés and restaurants of La place Gambetta.
The house has been newly renovated and benefits from a wood-burning stove in the sitting room, making it ideal for cosy winter week-ends as well as summer lets.

The Northern France / Nord-Pas-de-Calais region
Set between the sandy beaches of the Opal Coast and the rolling countryside of Les Sept Vallees, Montreuil is an ideal base for a family holiday or a short break in this beautiful part of France. Small enough to have preserved its medieval identity but large enough to support lively cultural and sporting activity
The Montreuil-sur-Mer / Montreuil area
Montreuil is a fortified market town ringed by ancient walled ramparts looking out over picturesque countryside. Victor Hugo gained inspiration for the character of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables while walking round these ramparts and they remain much as they were when he visited Montreuil. The town has numerous hotels, bars and restaurants (including a couple of Michelin starred establishments), a theatre and cinema, specialist wine shops, cheese shops, chocolate makers, antique shops, art galleries, an auctioneer and charcutiers and patissiers to satisfy even the most avid gastronome.
Montreuil has a citadel fortified by Louis XIV’s engineer Vauban, and many historic buildings including St. Saulve, one of the most beautiful Gothic churches in northern France.

A warm welcome, literally. The house was warm upon arrival, which was unexpected, but a lovely surprise and a great start. The house was clean and the facilities were great. The locality was great too.

Very clean family house and comfortable facilities, easily walkable to Montreuil-Sur-Mer town centre with bakeries, greengrocers, cafes, laundry, market etc. Road, bus and rail links to neighbouring towns and Calais were easy; how strange to find a railway ticket office open and staffed all day long! We drove to the seaside for days out. Berck-Sur-Mer is generally cheaper than Le Touquet, and we made good use of the local shops, and Agora swimming complex on rainy days. Nausicaa sea life centre in Boulogne was also a good day out for children. As you would expect from a tourist area, locals were very friendly and helpful with our school standard French. Highly recommended.
