We have had several long weekends in the pas de Calais usually staying in a Logis. For a change this year we booked this B&B after looking at the reviews. We were not disappointed, the rooms have all been recently refurbished and are very comfortable with an excellent bathroom. The breakfast is good and Laurence is most helpful. The house... More

Having never been to Northern France before, we found Wissant by chance as a place to stay for Easter weekend. Having found Villa Boreas on Trip advisor with very good reviews, we contacted Laurence direct to book a room and we were not disappointed. The renovated barn was perfectly located just outside the village centre and close to the beach.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Villa Boreas on our way back from Epernay to the UK. The guest house is beautifully finished throughout with the communal lounge / dining area at ground floor. The bedrooms are at first floor level and ours was very comfortable and recently refurbished (we'd guess) with modern en suite facilities. The host, Laurence prepares... More

As previous reviews have mentioned, this is a lovely 'Longere' or old barn style of house, refurbished with taste, making it feel very homely indeed. As stated by other reviewers, mind your head on the first floor, the hall way is a tricky place to travel through en route to your bedroom. Laurence was in command that weekend, and she... More

Vincent is a true professional running this beautiful B&B. He is very friendly and sympathetic. An example is that he drives 15km each morning to search out the best croissants for his guests at breakfast. The B&B is situated in a quiet but central part of Wissant, easy walking distance to some nice restaurants with private off road parking. Our... More

We took the ferry over from Dover to Calais and chose this place b/c we wanted to be in a village on the beach. The house is beautiful and the host very nice (speaks excellent English). You do have to call when you arrive so he can let you in so make sure you have a mobile that works in... More

Very good bed-and-breakfast. Charming host - attentive and friendly but not "in your face". Comfortable bed and piping hot water. Breakfast was extremely well planned. Only slight drawback - the three rooms are upstairs, and the roof slopes. A bit tricky for tall guests.

Had a fantastic weekend at Villa Boreas even though France beat us at rugby ! After a lovely breakfast Vincent served us some beer to watch the game with. Even though England were thoroughly beaten we had a good time drinking beer by the log fire.The rooms were excellent and spotlessly clean and the location was nice and quiet yet... More
