“Back again, and will be back again ”

There really isn't anything you can fault Bienvenue for. It is always clean and well stocked with enough kitchen utensils to enjoy breakfast and in our case at least one home cooked dinner during our stay. There is a half freezer under the stairs and with the nearest large supermarket in Dover, a great help to keep things fresh over the week.

The bed (upstairs) we have never slept downstairs is comfy and just the right amount of hard to ensure you sleep well and wake up refreshed. We normally sleep with the large bedroom windows/doors open and listen to the waves and the hum of the passing ships.

There are lovely ensuite showers with Molton Brown toiletries and soft towels. A bath sheet, bath towel and hand towel per person.

Outside on the terrace there are two sunbeds (with cushions) and a table with umbrella and 4 chairs. Perfect for lounging about on a sunny day when it is too hot to take the garden gate right out onto the cliffs and some beautiful walks and sights.

We are already looking forward to our next visit.

“So good we've booked to go again!”

We never usually return to a property as there are so many other places to visit in the world, but this house was SO lovely we have arranged to take different member of our family in April 2017.

The design and furnishings are beautiful and the views are spectacular! We are usually reticent to rent properties where the owners are on site but the owners of this property are so discreet you do not know they are there.

Highly recommended!

“Another luxury stay”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It felt the same as our first stay. View still breathtaking. House still perfect. All amienites you need. Every detail thought of by the friendly owners. Weather perfect all week apart from one afternoon. Great views of France and ferries and boats on the channel. You know its good when the kids cry at hometime. And the adults!! We honestly cant put into words how much we love this place. Already sorting my time off work for next years stay. A+ / 5* rating all the way.
