Isabelle was so welcoming and helpful. The B&B was easy to drive to, about 5 miles from Lille - our satnav took us directly to the street, although the driveway is between two houses and made noticeable by a large concrete flower pot, it can be missed. The whole house was spotless. Our bedroom, with a large double bed, was very comfortable, lots of wardrobe space, a TV, a kettle and supplies to make hot drinks with. Our room faced the garden and was very quiet, and with the shutters very dark so a good nights sleep was ensured. The bathroom was en suite with spacious shower (take your own large towel if you like to feel swathed after showering), mirror etc, the toilet is possibly chemical so is noisy with flushing restrictions, but no problem. There is free wifi. Breakfast, in the dining room overlooking the garden, was a simple French one, everything was home made, wonderful bread, delicious jams & cake, but there was no protein. Isabelle was a mine of information, with maps, suggestions of routes, transport, parking, dining, you could ask anything, her English is very good. There is a cat, but well behaved and stayed away from us, we're not cat lovers. We would definitely stay there again.
