“Great experience of farm life for all the family”
Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very warm welcome from Dominique and her family, Lots of information for the local area. Close to two supermarkets. Children (ages 8, 11 and 15) really enjoyed getting involved with the care of the animals (chickens, ducks, horses, goat and donkey) and were very happy that they were able to go horse riding too. Lovely clean and well equipped cottage, although the stairs were a bit creaky! Overall the whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you to Dominique and her family and Philippe too, who all made our holiday very delightful.

“In the country”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely converted old farm. The existing farm is still being used mainly for animal rescue. The owners were there to greet us and could not make you feel more at home. The kitchen had enough variety to make a simple meal with the addition of fresh eggs in the morning. Cheap basic but great character. If you need 5 star stay clear. Highly recommended

“A lovely stay in peaceful rural surroundings”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Only half an hour from Calais (and very easy to find), my wife and I and our 4 children had a very spacious and relaxing stay in a clean and pleasant gite on a traditional Farm set in beautiful countryside. This is unspoilt traditional rural France.
Very friendly and helpful English speaking owners who live and work on the farm. Free WiFi.
Many things to do in the local area (info in English provided on arrival at Gite), lakes, forests, museums and many more. I wish we had more time to enjoy more of the activities that the kind owners had available on the farm, (e.g. garden toys for the children, horses, tractor rides, etc.)
The town of Ardres is about 10 minutes drive away with all the shops you need and larger supermarkets near St Omer (or Calais of course).
Beach is 30 minutes drive - recommend Wissant or Wimereux
Bruges 1.5 hours drive and Paris 2.5 hours drive. We had successful day trips to both cities.
Highly recommend both the accomodation, local area and wider region.
We hope to return.

“Wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2013

I have stayed twice on this farm with my family. Both times we have made most welcome, we were treated like members of their family rather than paying guests. The farm is ideally suited to visit the Calais area, There is much to see and do. If you are interested in horses you are welcome to ride the horses stabled at the farm. I would highly recommend this holiday accommodation. Best regards David Douglas Leeds.
