“Everything, and I really mean everything, to the last detail provided to ensure a perfectly memorable stay” We were a party of six family members all male, five" fortyish" and one senior who stayed at this vacation rental for four days . Our main purpose was to visit various sites connected with World War 1 and to do some shopping and general tourism.
All the arrangements for the stay and the booking procedure went very smoothly.We picked up the keys as arranged and arrived at the Farmhouse around 1630. To say Farmhouse is somewhat of an understatement This rental was more like a mini private estate completely walled and private. Everything that had been told us prior to our booking was true to the last detail.
This was December and the weather wasn't the best. We had thought that as the area is quiet we might be at a loss for something to do but no. There was such a supply of books, videos,music,maps ,board games that not once did we turn on the TV. Table tennis was provided in the main house so this was a further activity. We could not believe that such a high standard could be achieved in a rental. In fact we had a little competition after the second day to see what we could find that might be missing and not provided, if there was anything that was out of place but after a short time we just gave up. Everything that we could possibly need was there. There was so much room in the house that everyone could enjoy private space.
Some members of our party are excellent cooks and with a supermarket just five minutes away together with two butchers shops we were able to stock up with all provisions at very reasonable prices.The kitchen had all the equipment necessary and we were able to run off meals of a very high standard.As for dining all was provided in the way of cutlery etc. so that our table looked like a setting in the Ritz! Conversation at meals and after was enlivened by quantities of excellent wine also locally sourced. As we were able to provide such catering we did not visit any of the local restaurants which we were told are excellent. Guides and maps again provided showed us exactly where these establishments were located should we need them
As to the area this is ideally located and just over an hour from the main places connected with both World Wars so this was excellent from our point of view If pleasant rural scenery is your goal then Delettes is in an ideal position to meet your needs. The sea is just 45 minutes away.
For shopping well just 40 minutes from Calais and all the wineries and hypermarkets as well as small shops are all to hand.
Obviously in December we did not use the swimming pool but if we had been a little more energetic we could have made use of the outdoor court for handball, badminton or used the trampoline.
At any time of the year this rental would be superb for family groups or for groups such as ours. We were six persons but the farmhouse could accommodate up to 12 persons easily
through the use of the extra beds also provided and still not be overcrowded..
From the initial contact with Nick Hamilton through to the moment we locked up on leaving everything ran like clockwork. This vacation rental must be one of the best ever!!
