This is the PERFECT location for when you really want to escape the rat-race and recharge your batteries!
Nestled in the picturesque Seven Valleys, overlooking a stream, pasture land ... cows, ducks, pheasants, woodpeckers... we are just an hours easy drive south-east of the tunnel/ferries..
Your accommodation is a stand-alone, 2-floored, 2-bedroom cottage in a quiet, small “village that time forgot” (Embry). The Cottage is very comfortable and extremely well equipped and provides free Wi-Fi.
In summer enjoy an evening drink on your own terrace, under the trees (perhaps light up the barbeque) and soak up the peace and quiet.
The cottage shares a large property with the English-speaking Kiwi owners who live in the adjacent "grand maison" and one of us is always on-hand.
The village sports NO shops or cafes ! (Nearest garage: 8 mins drive, Nearest shops: 12 mins.) Close by are many historical war sites to explore, along with a selection of superb restaurants and lovely villages to discover. Montreuil is 22km away (shops, citadelle, ramparts) and Le Touquet is about 37km (beaches, casino, golf, equestrian, great shops).
Please note that the two bedrooms are upstairs and one must walk through one to get to the second one (and the en-suite bathroom). There is a second shower and toiler downstairs). Also, there is no mobile-phone coverage in the Cottage (which lots of our guests appreciate) but you do have the Wi-Fi and coverage is usually possible on one of the higher, adjacent roads.
When you are ready to leave the rat-race behind and experience a lovely, traditional French village - Embry offers a unique opportunity to soak up the quiet and the sun whilst giving easy access to many places of interest in the Pad de Calais region.

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region
Pas-de-Calais is oft-overlooked by the Brits, who typically hit Calais and "pedal-to-the-metal" to Paris, yet the area has SO much to offer... beaches, aquariums, golf, equestrian activities, famous battlefields (Azincourt, Fressin, Crécy, Vimy Ridge, The Somme), V1 and V2 Rocket sites & museums, walled cities (Boulogne, Montreuil, brocantes, hundreds of Antiquities stores, cosy restaurants and side-walk cafes, hunting, shooting, cycling, walking...
"The Village that Time Forgot" !
A true slice of ancient rural France, quaint houses and quiet, "laid-back" life-styles, yet within easy "striking distance" of the English Channel and all the attractions that Pas-de-Calais has to offer.
