Charming 1850 Chateau run since mid 2013 by Anglo Dutch couple Tim & Margreeth Alexander.

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.

Would you like to feel completely at home in a castle? Please visit to Chateau de Lys... with very hospitable host and hostess. Beautiful surroundings, delicious breakfast in the conservatory, a table tennis table and the presence of a swimming pool do the rest! Jan and Manon

highly recommended, we had a great time at the Chateau des Lys. The landscape around is also beautiful. Tim and his wife are lovely people. The accommodation is great and Tim can provide you with many tips on what to do in the area.

We stayed for two nights with two families in the family rooms. What was originally planned as a stop and go turned out into a great bonus and ending of our holiday! Tim and Margreeth are a lovely couple that make you feel at home right away. The rooms are nice, good price quality, and the breakfast is wonderful with a nice personal touch. Warmly recommended!

We drove from Calais to Toulouse this summer and our first stop was in Chateau des Lys. The place has a lot of charm but what makes this place special is Tim & Margreeth. Both are so welcoming. We had barely put a foot out of the car that Tim was already taking our 7 year-old daughter have a look at fossils and we had lots of dinosaur talks. I loved chatting with Margreeth and Tim. Our children keep talking about chicken eggs and the experiences they made with Tim (making the eggs bounce on the grass and make creamy scrambled eggs the next morning) to everyone they meet. Our daughter loved the swimming pool, we enjoyed the tour of the park... It was a very relaxed beginning to our holidays and we also really enjoyed going to the nearby fossil beach your recommended. It definitively felt too short and we hope to come back soon in your beautiful chateau. Thanks a lot.

Looking for somewhere to stay with two small children on the way home via Channel ports, we stumbled on the Château des Lys. What a treat! An idiosyncratic venue with a wonderful host, Tim. Within moments it felt like we were family more than guests. Tim is a fount of knowledge and couldn’t have done more to make us feel welcome. The renovation of the château itself is a work in progress; there are some rough edges and no-one pretends otherwise. That’s part of the charm. We very much hope to return to see how Tim and the château’s story develops (and to meet Margreeth.) Good luck with everything, guys! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
