Only a short distance form the business of Calais and Boulogne but this was rural tranquility. A loving restored barn houses the guests. You do need to be aware that you will be woken by cockerels and there were 2 donkeys nudging our window, and a cat hell bent on getting in! I love all that but it may not... More

Pleasant farmhouse with comfortable rooms in a quiet spot with rural views not far from Calais. Good as a stopover and welcomes dogs. Just a short drive from the Ferme du Verte if you want a wonderful evening meal.

We spent a lovely few days at Alex Factory in May 2013. We have two young boys so the family room was ideal for us and really spacious. The boys enjoyed the donkeys, ducks and chickens. The breakfasts were great and we loved the fresh eggs from the hens. It was a great base from which to explore the area.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Alex Factory. Quirky and very convenient for Calais and the tunnel. The host was most accommodating . The rooms were spacious (we booked a suite as we had our two children with us) and the breakfast was a good continental .

My wife and I stayed one night here whilst travelling from Northern Brittany to visit World War One sites in Belgium. Lovely big room furnished nicely and very peaceful. There are chickens and ducks roaming around and a couple of friendly donkeys in a field by the courtyard. It's in a very quiet spot and the service was excellent. Alex... More

A wonderful, luxury stop over after 2 weeks of camping. Alex greeted us immediately on arrival and was friendly throughout. The room was a delight - beautifully furnished and comfortable. Very peaceful surroundings, friendly hens and donkeys plus a delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

The new Alex factory is in a superb location with rolling countryside and farms in every direction and so peaceful the only sounds coming from the numerous goats/donkeys and chickens. We did arrive late but Alex was waiting at the door to greet us. I was expecting to see the chateau so was surprised to find that Alex has relocated... More

We stayed here for just one night on our way to Eurotunnel, so we did not have time to get a real feel for the place or area. We had a good welcome from Alex and he had booked dinner for us at a local restaurant which was not too far away. It is a very rural and a little... More

Only spent one night here in August 2013 on our way back to England but had a wonderful time. The accommodation is all set in a renovated French farmhouse which looks amazing from the outside but all of the rooms are decorated in an African style with an open plan layout and bright colours as well as pieces from Africa...
