Certificate of Excellence
Charming 1850 Chateau run since mid 2013 by Anglo Dutch couple Tim & Margreeth Alexander. French, Dutch English & German all spoken (with varying degrees of success- "let us hospitalise you") 5 gorgeous rooms including family rooms all with showers some with baths, extra beds possible. 3 Gites sleeping 4 to 8 people, Group accomodation, weddings, seminars all welcome. Table D'hotes possible when available. 10 Minutes from St. Valery, Le Crotoy and Abbeville, easy access from motorway (6 minutes). 1 Hour from Calais, 2 hours from Paris ideal for stopping over to and from the South of France but Picardie is lovely & worth discovering by itself. 45 Mins from Amiens. Sauna on request, Swimming Pool during the season. 6 Hectares of ancient woodland and grounds with Wild Boar, Red Squirrels, Deer, Woodcocks, Owls and lots of moles. Chateau has been variously a hunting lodge, a Chapel a school and now a bed and breakfast. Welcome one and all.

We loved Chateau de lys and would definitely recommend it. Tim and Margreeth have great generosity of spirit - they definitely go above and beyond. This was a life-affirming, fascinating and fun stay. We'll definitely be back.

We stayed in Chamber Romantique which is clean and spacious. Decorated in old style to suite the chateau. The owners are very friendly and welcoming people. The garden is huge as the breakfast room where we had continental breakfast with cold meats.
