“A great Cottage Gite with great facilities”
We wanted a holiday that was suitable for young children (with their parents and grandparents) and could not have been more satisfied by this lovely Gite and its lovely owners who could not have been more helpful. It had ample space and everythng you could require including a really helpful booklet with loads of suggestions of places to visit in the surrounding areas. Every kind of interest was covered, be it amusement parks or zoos for younger children to historical and war memorials for older children and their parents. We went to some wonderful places thanks to this booklet with its useful information. The Gite itself was lovely. Beautifully clean and well maintained, ample accommodation for four adults and two children (and a young baby and his three year old brother!) The facilities were perfect. Large outdoor play area with small goal for football, trampoline, picnic table to rest your wine on whilst watching the children and badminton net for the more energetic! The chickens were a great distraction for the children and the eggs that were given to us when we arrived were enjoyed by all (except me!) There is a large barn with two table tennis tables and basketball net and another room with games and books so every need has been catered for here. There is a brick built BBQ. We can not recommend this Gite and its owners enough. Our holiday was made perfect by the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. Would definitely go there again if the opportunity arose.
Owner's reply: That is so kind of you to write such a nice review Hilary. Thank you so much. We enjoyed having you all to stay, and hope we may see you again some day.
“A great little holiday Gite”
The Turquoise holiday Gite was a perfect location to explore Nord Pas De Calais. The Gite was well equipped (although the living room area was a little small for a family of 5) and the games room was popular with the family. The Gite was clean and the owners are helpful in giving advice on areas to visit. Great beech at La Touchet and lots of places of interest to visit, although most are a 45 minutes to an hour drive away.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review.
“peaceful location in the french countryside”
A lovely location in the countryside but near to amenities. Only 45 minutes from calais, great for those who don't like long journeys. The property has everything you could want, and the excellent internet connection is a must for planning days out. The owners were generous and welcoming, allowing my girls to help collect fresh eggs from the hens each morning. We recommend a sunny day out to Le Touquet, lovely wide sandy beach and bustling town, parking charges were only 4 euros for 8 hours. We also had great fun on the Rando Rail, only 10 minutes from the property. Take a picnic if the weather is good. For a rainy afternoon, try the Maison du Papier, a small but immaculate museum, slightly quirky. We were disappointed by St Omer but this may be because we we out of high season. We took a boat trip along the marsh from Salperwick which was very relaxing with pretty scenery. Overall a wonderful holiday, definitely need a car but the roads are all very quiet and easy to navigate.
“You won't be disappointed”
Had a truly enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Turquoise Gite. The property has everything you need, is sparkling clean and modern and is extremely quiet, so a great night sleep could be had. A warm welcome can be expected and we were given fresh eggs to set us up for the day. The gite is in a great location too, being in the middle of everywhere we wanted to see. Would highly recommend. The photos don't do it justice!
We stayed here over christmas week and couldnt of enjoyed christmas anymore. My children loved their bedrooms, they were so roomy. I loved going upstairs, it had the wow factor !! Downstairs was lovely to, kitchen was lovely, had all the equipment needed. Even supplied washing powder for the washing machine and dishwasher tablets. We went to the playroom with the children (age 14, 12 and 5) to play pool quite often and the owners made sure it was warm in there with the wood fire. The only downside was having know internet all week, but this couldnt be helped as the owners had just took over the place and were waiting for it to be connected. We couldnt contact anyone over xmas as was relying on this, so didnt top up phoned before we left england. The views from the cottage are gorgeous, and so pieceful. Plenty of supermarkets about. Just a little tip, shop in Aldi, so much cheaper in there and only up the road. Overall we would love to come back and will always remember our christmas in France, one of our best christmases ever !!
“We had a lovely time - very nice owners & comfortable gites with everything we needed.”
We booked both gites in March for a family reunion and had a lovely time. The gites were warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. The new owners took over a few months ago and were very nice, and very helpful. They have also updated the internet and the connection was great. I'd definitely recommend this place - There are plenty of shops and hypermarkets around, and we even had time to go across the border into Belgium to stock up on cheap cigs and wine! We also managed to BBQ on the patio on a rare sunny day in March which the kids loved .The meat here is such good quality and the fresh prawns such good value. We enjoyed the village bar on one of our nights and will definitely be booking again!
“great time had”
Lovely house. Clean and tidy with plenty for the 2 kids to do despite in raining every second day which I was assured wasn't the norm. Ended the holiday at the village's Bastille Day celebrations. All in a good time had by all.
“quiet getaway with friends”
From arrival to departure we have no complaints about this gite. The hosts were extremely helpful and there if you wanted anything. The gite is equipped with everything and the hosts had left fresh bread, wine and cheese. The lounge area is a little small for 6 adults but the bedrooms are a good size. Xtra facilities are in abundance but did not make full use of them - table tennis, darts, table football, pool to name a few. Would recommend to families although it is a little quiet if you are looking for a bar or nightlife. The bar in the vilage was closed when we got there at 9.30 pm on a Saturday night
“fantastic gite in a lovely area with great hosts”
This is our 3rd visit to the gite, we love staying there. The gite is about 40 minutes drive from Calais and easy to get to, on arrival we have always been made welcome by Geoff and Irene and there is also a welcome of bread,wine and cheese. the gite has everything you could need and is always clean and welcoming. There is a patio area outside each gite with a BBQ and a large table and chairs with umbrella which we took advantage of as the weather was fantastic that week. the town of Thiembronne is a short walk away but for shops you can travel to Fauqembergue about 5 mins drive away, there are 2 supermarkets,and an array of other shops, The surrounding area is great, fabulous market at Hesdin and lots to see and do. I cannot recommend these gites highly enough.We definately will be going back again!
“Peace and quiet in the country, yet close enough to sea and shopping”
Good price, not too far to travel, friendly reception by helpful owners, games room for the kids (4 teenagers), not to mention the fab dvd collection freely available to us. Basis for travel to various seaside places, a day trip to Canterbury(!), Euro shopping centre at Calais. Surprised by the peace of the country. Would go back.
