Exceeded what where already quite high expectations
Was already expecting a nice gite from the pictures on both the owners website and others. What we couldn't have expected was the size of the gite and just how much there was in it.
A fully equipped kitches - the number of pots/pans etc was superb (including a kitchen mixer!!!), 10 of everything (in a 5 bed cootage I was expecting 5 of everything).
Rooms much larger than the pictures suggest - could quite easily be 3 bedroom and still have room to spare.
Washer, iron, ironing board, large maiden, means you don't need to take a whole host of clothes (unless you don't want to be domesticated - not a problem for me)
Very friendly family own the gite - although my slightly better than pigeon French was tested a few times as their English is pretty non-existant. Good fun though.
Drawbacks - none really although a DVD player may be handy. There is only French TV available for lazy evenings. No great problem though as we had a lap top with music and there is is free wi-fi meaning that english radion stations were also accessible. Nice to chill out with a book and a good red wine.
Boulogne is only 5 mins drive away but may well as be 50 since this is really country-fide.
Need to remember to get bread and pastries for morning the day before although the nearest hypermarkets (Auchan and a Carrefour) are within a couple of minutes drive and the bakers is in Wimille also less than 5 mins away if you fancy an early morning ride out.
Would definately return if looking to holiday in the area again. …
