My wife and our two dogs recently stayed with Alex and his family at this truly amazing farm house. If you speak French Alex speaks French if you like me only speak English then Alex speaks perfect English.

We spent just one night at Alex Factory on the way South, but it would also be a great place for a short break eg for cycling, as the surrounding countryside is lovely and it is just a few miles to the beaches. We rented the family room, and it was very spacious, especially the bathroom. The main bed is... More

Really enjoyed our stay, at this peaceful rural location a short drive from Calais and to the resort beaches. Accommodation benefits from farm produce for breakfast with fresh eggs, bread, homemade preserves and cheese. Fridge in room and an open kitchen were appreciated. Its rustic and boutique with style and quality finish - will go back! Thank you Alex for... More

We stayed in the Hay loft room. It is a large room with a good sized bathroom with a decent sized bath in it, plus a fridge. The room also has its own balcony and seating area and it was a real joy to sit there and , have a cold beer and look at the local countryside. The room... More

This is a perfect place to stay for a night or two. Not far from Calais but also in the countryside - it's ideal if you want to explore the coast or if you are passing through. It's a b&b not a hotel but the rooms are still stylish. The owner is very friendly and helpful

Thanks a lot for your review, correct we are not a four stars hotel but a nice B&B with lot of facilities. We like simple things with confort and authenticity ;-) (local simple products or gastronomics restaurant partners ) In the middle of nowhere but 10mn from the coast and 20mn form the Tunnel. We look forward to seeing you... More

We booked this place after reading the Booking.co summary. I am very sorry to report that it is completely incorrect and misleading and I would suggest that Booking.co is highly remiss in not re inspecting this property. There is no possible way that this property can accord with the European regulations for accommodation. We booked the top room offered. The... More

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 .
