We chose Les Courlis as accommodation in the charming city of Saint Valery en Caux. With a two year old toddler we stayed there six days in the room ‘L'Albatros’. Les Courlis showed an excellent base for touring and discovering the beautiful Pays de Caux.
THE HOST AND HOSTESS
Christophe and Marie were excellent hosts in the carefully and tastefully decorated historic house. The family lives in the house.
Christophe and Marie are always there for you. We had ‘golden tips’ tailored to the wishes and needs of our company. When we went to a lake, then we got some bread to feed the ducks. The hosts were superb in dealing with small children. They offered us some toys and a bottle warmer.
Les Courlis is a beautiful and spacious old mansion, it could be called a manor. With care and taste, the hosts collected authentic elements to decorate the house in respect of the heritage (a fellow guest was amazed that it still had all the real authentic locks). Unlike many rental houses or bed and breakfast, here the guest rooms are very solid, and beautifully decorated and finished with antiques. By the way, that was no problem for our little son.
RESPONSE TO OTHER POST
The mystery of the sound of the pipes: this old house full of charm was successfully adapted to contemporary needs and standards. When you flush the toilet, you hear it in the pipes. It bothers not at all. Once, when the toilet reservoir had not fully been emptied, we kept hearing the pipes because there was some water dripping. This was solved completely by flushing once. No worries!
L'Albatros is an incredibly spacious room, as you see on the website, with a beautiful and spacious bathroom. The room has a wooden floor. The contemporary bathroom is finished with tiles. For our son, we got a magnificent antique bed. There is ample storage space with a beautiful old cupboard in the room and a fitted wardrobe in the bathroom.
Furthermore, L'Albatros has an excellent double bed on which you can lay your head nicely if you want to read some more. The room has an armchair and a small round table with two chairs. In the corner stood a suitcase full of beautiful antique dolls that collectors would offer a lot of money for. In l’ Albatros, one can sleep soundly in absolute sacred silence, near the city centre.
If you're going to have breakfast, you’ll feel like a knight, lord or lady in a castle. The breakfast room is a wonderful cozy dining hall. There will never be more than ten people at the table. Every day, the delicious bread is self-baked with quality ingredients. You get a jar of delicious homemade yogurt, and many sorts of homemade jam, which really offers something for everyone. Then orange juice and hot beverage of your choice. The table linen is always remarkably complete, so the table always looks nice. Whether Marie, Christophe or one of their sympathetic children served at the table, breakfast was always a fun and relaxed time to look forward to.
This guest house uses correct prices and offered us an unforgettable holiday. For his entire stay, our son had to pay nothing.
