“Just not good enough”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2017

The chateau looks amazing and probably is but that's more than I can say for the cottage. It's damp and smells damp too. The furniture and other items for use in the cottage are low budget at best. The beds are not comfortable and the double bed creaks so badly that the noise wakes the whole house when you turn over. There is potential of course but nothing has been done to unlock this potential. On the topic of locking, the door is near impossible to lock, so much so that on the first night I called the contact number to inform them after 30 minutes of trying. They talked me through how to lock the door which is a strictly two handed, strong arm job and something they are clearly aware of. So fix it!!!!! Some of the glasses have huge chips and cracks around the top which is dangerous. There is a twin room downstairs just off the living room and separated with thin folding doors. Upstairs there is the double room and the bunk room. The bunk bed is hardly usable as the gap between the bottom and top bunk is very small, for sure an adult would not manage and a child would feel claustrophobic. The pool is fine and heated. The grounds are not as large as described although well maintained. Each of the properties have their own outside dining area and bbq, although bbq was so severely cracked that we didn't bother using it for fear of breaking it. There are some worrying things which could cause injury throughout the house. In the edge of the underside of the single beds there are long bolts protruding. The stair case is very narrow as too are the steps. There are electric heaters throughout the property which, thankfully, we didn't need to use. There are gates which separate the areas of the gardens each with a cheap padlock and strict, yet seemingly pointless, instructions to ensure the gates remain locked at all times, making it hardly worth going there at all. Being in a farming and rural area there is constant farm traffic and the noise of chainsaws and other irritating machines. Then the area, there is nothing in the town itself and little to do within a 20 minute drive. This part of Normandy is not set up for tourists in any way, it's a farming region. We went to LE Treport one day which does have some nice restaurants but is a run down French seaside resort. LES Touquet is a beautiful place about 1:20 north along the coast but avoid the water park there, it's terrible and speedo's only which further adds to the hideousness of it. I looked on air-b-and-b and the cost for the cottage was much less than we paid so my advice, if you're still interested, would be to look there. If you are planning a stay here then you need a car, earplugs (at least at harvest time) and the ability to amuse yourself. There is a corn store within earshot, next door, which takes deliveries through the night from tractors, the noise and vibration waking the whole house. On the Friday night we returned having had a lovely dinner out to some party in the neighboring property, not the château. Possibly not such a disturbance in the thick walled chateau but in the cottage (previously barn) it was like they were having the party in your back garden. This continued into the early hours with screams, shouting and racing cars through the village, it's really not a quaint tourist village but a less than friendly small French farming village, with social issues. A good day out, if you like nature and don't mind the hour long drive to get there is 'LE Parc du Marquenterre'. A family of four is 33.80 to get in which is a lot for a walk around a nature reserve and €4 to rent binoculars but it's a great day out, well managed and beautiful. The cafe/bar there is also very well managed, good quality and good value and you can use this without paying to enter the reserve. The town of Crotoy is a great place to stop for dinner on the way back too. Practical stuff: there is an iron and an ironing board (broken but useable), hair dryer, cd/cassette player, cooker, microwave and TV with limited British channels but no French channels sadly. There is also a DVD player and a small selection of movies. You need to bring your own towels, don't forget!!!!! I also suggest bringing toilet roll as there is only one here. We had a wonderful week as a family exploring this area, we won't come back as we've seen it now and very honestly it's not that nice. There are some gems here though but my suggestion would be to head further west to give yourself easier access to the D-day beaches.

“What a fabulous find”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

We had just the best time at The Cottage at Chateau de la Vallee, wish we had found this place years ago when the children were little, although they had a fab time now at 16 and 23! The pool and grounds were great and the area well placed for visits to the beaches etc. Recommend St Valery sur Somme and Le Treport for lunch watching the fishing boats. The cottage itself, although small, is beautifully furnished and equipped and I can highly recommend it for a holiday, it was helpful to have someone on hand who spoke English and Jan was fabulous. Perhaps next time we will upgrade to the Chateau!! Only downside was that we could not get Wifi anywhere in the cottage or grounds which was a bit of a pain as had booked the cottage knowing that we would need Wifi but plenty of cafes and tourism offices with Wifi locally that we could pop into every so often. Thank you to everyone who helps to keep this place so fab :)
