Description from owner

Description

La Maison Longue is a spacious cottage, built around 1890 (late 19th century) and constructed primarily of wattle and daub, with original exposed beams throughout. The cottage was formerly used as a stable and was part of a small working farm, which today still has the original barn with its amazing timber structure still intact. Approximately 25 years ago the farm was saved from dilapidation and later still, in 2006, our French holiday cottages (Le Petit Hameau) were created.

(It is said that the French résistance hid allied airmen at the farm during the Second World War; we can tell you more about this when you come to stay)

The cottage benefits from spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining areas, perfect for families and spending time together. There are two bedrooms (one double and one twin), plus a shower room/WC, all to the ground floor. The kitchen is well equipped with a full sized modern electric cooker and hob, family sized fridge freezer, microwave,

The kitchen is well equipped with a full sized modern electric cooker and hob, family sized fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. For your entertainment there is satellite TV (large flat screen), a DVD player, Wi-Fi and a selection of DVDs, games and books.

La Maison Longue has electric heating throughout, with comfortable and generous seating in the living area, set around a brick fireplace with fabulous wood burning fire; great for cosy days or evenings in and ideal for romantic getaways.

Walk around or sit in the shared garden – there are sunny and shady parts and wooden loungers - or take advantage of the garden games and bicycles, plus skateboards for the brave amongst you.

In the summer months – if the weather is hot enough – we even put up the large splash pool.

For those travelling with little ones, a travel cot and high chair are available, without an additional charge.

A welcome pack of essentials are provided on arrival, to get your holiday off to a good start.

Towels and bedding are provided at the start of you stay and are included in the rental cost.

***For romantic getaways, or that little bit extra comfort, we can provide dressing gowns, slippers and a nice bottle of champagne - please enquire***

Location description from owner

The Hauts-de-France region

Easily within reach are the Somme battlefields and memorials relating to WWI and WW2 - Thiepval, Vimy Ridge, Lochnagar crater, Albert and its incredible First World War museum, the Great war museum of Peronne, trenches and museum at Newfoundland Memorial Park, commonwealth war graves, Second World War Blockhaus bunker and museum at Eperlecques, and La Coupole, the V2 rocket launching base. Azincourt is also well worth a visit as are the touching guided tour of Wellington war tunnels in Arras.

Visit the gardens of Abbaye de Valloires, Sericourt or Liane, the amazing Louvre-Lens museam, the chateaux of Couin, Grand Rollecourt, Cercamp, Brias Château Fort de Rambures or Beaurepaire Montreuil. Stroll around the cobbled market town of Hesdin with its shops, restaurants and Thursday market, or visit Arras with its incredible Belfry, restaurants and medieval underground tunnels, Montreuil sur Mer’s, cobbled streets, walled ramparts, restaurants and bars. Visit Abbeville with its many chocolate shops and collegiate church, or Amiens with its UNESCO gothic cathedral, pleasant canals crisscrossing the town and the amazing zoo. St Riquier has a wonderful Abbey founded in 625 AD, lovely central square and nice restaurants to choose from. Take a trip to the fishing towns of St Valery, Le Crotoy or Le Treport, with fish restaurants, steam train ride and boat trips and at Le Treport there is a funicular – so much to see and do we can’t mention it all here!

For those feeling particularly energetic there are plentiful walking and cycling routes, and for sand and sea lovers, the beautiful beaches of Le Touquet and Fort Mahon, as well as many other beaches along the 250km of the Cote d’Opal. For the young – and young at heart - you’ll find in Le Touquet the on-beach waterpark Aqualud. Parc Bagatelle amusement and theme park near Merlimont, Dennlys Parc at St Omer, swim or bowl at ABC near Hesdin, or try the 7 vallee trout streams or golf courses at Nampont St Martin, Le Touquet, Hardelot. For the bird enthusiasts, Le Parc de Marquenterre nature reserve is a favourite visit for migrating birds.

Let’s not forget time to relax and unwind in the garden, where you will be able to listen to the sounds of nature in a beautiful countryside setting, whilst enjoying a glass of wine, beer, espresso or cup of tea or whatever your favourite drink might be.

Auxi-le-Chateau

Situated in a quiet village in the 7 Vallees, between the French towns of Auxi-le-Chateau and Frevent, La Maison Longue is the perfect place to stay for a holiday in Pas de Calais. With the market towns of Hesdin, St Pol and Doullens only 20 minutes away and Arras, Abbeville and Amiens all within an hour’s drive, as are Montreuil, St Valery-sur-Somme, Le Crotoy and Le Touquet, our location means you can comfortably enjoy many of the tourist attractions and activities of the region and also the Somme.The cottage is one of three at Le Petit Hameau, very well positioned for vising the many attractions of Pas de Calais and Picardy, and also close enough to visit romantic Paris, Palace of Versailles, Disneyland Paris and architectural Lille.

“Short break in France”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2013

Good communication via email with owner meant booking process was smooth and without problems. Full details on route to find the gite provided and worked well. Gite is in a very small hamlet but has plenty of parking for the car etc. We enjoyed the stay and had everying we could need for our short stay. Beds comfy and linen clean etc. All the usual equipment so we could cook and relax at the end of a day. A small welcome pack was a nice touch. Our only small issue was once we ran out of hot water in the morning on the third shower - I did enjoy the cool shower ( not!) . Other than that no problems at all. would I go back , no not because of the gite but because there are other places I want to visit. Would i recommend others to stay - yes.
