“Tranquil rural location ideal for a relaxing break”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Very quiet location, Vehicles a rarity. For visits to the Somme sites, gardens, Church architecture, shopping this is well placed. Quiet roads and short distances. Plenty to do withn 30- 45minutes during our week . Lots of good places for lunch when we were out and about.
Accommodation is a typical gite converted from farm buildings. The living / dining/Kitchen area was very spacious. I think bedroom 2 would be quite tight for 2 adults plus their clothes as storage is limited. Fine for children with clothes kept in cases under their beds.
Weather not warm enough to try the pool but felt warm to the touch when we arrived on the last hot day for weeks .
Welcome pack was great. Lovely butter and eggs. Information pack is comprehensive. Keith and Keran are very willing to share their extensive knowledge of the area.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a great review, and for your helpful comments. We are due to refurbish La Maison Longue later this year and will look to see how we can expand the current hanging and storage space for clothes. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will return.

“Great Gite”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

La Maison Longue was very comfortable and just what we needed for three days of exploring the 7 valleys. We had a great welcome from Keith and the generous welcome pack of eggs, butter, bread, wine, beer etc was a lovely touch. Keith is a mine of information about the area, especially the war history and took the time to tell us about a great walk. Thanks very much for a great stay.

“Perfect place to chill out and relax”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

From our first exchange of emails with Keith and Keran we were sure that we were on to a winner. All of our questions were answered quickly and completely, booking and payment were handled efficiently and painlessly and we were provided with excellent directions that led us straight to the gite.

Keith was on hand to welcome us and throughout our stay couldn't have done more to make it very enjoyable indeed, even down to finding an adapter so that we could watch French TV in addition to the english language Sky normally provided!

A superb welcome pack was provided. The Gite was spotlessly clean very comfortable and was without doubt the best equipped of the 30 or so similar properties that we've stayed in over the years. Cooking facilities were as good as at home.

Our stay was only a few days before Christmas, but the combination of a log burner (and plenty of logs!) in the living room and electric heaters in the other rooms maintained a very pleasant temperature. The hot water supply - often an issue in gites - was excellent.

The gite is in a very rural location. The small towns of Auxi-le-Chateau and Frevent are both about 10 minutes drive away. Boffles itself is about 3/4-mile off the main road and consists of a handful of farms. It's very, very quiet, but that's what we were looking for. There are some very pleasant walks in the area and we'd strongly recommend the public path that runs along the disused railway line up the valley.

There's a great deal to see and do within an hour or so's drive of the gite and it really isn't as much in the middle of nowhere as it first appears!

All in all, fantastic value for money, with delightful hosts. We're very happy to recommend it wholeheartedly.

“Great location”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed at the La Maison Longue with my husband and 14 year old step daughter and it was perfect for us. My step daughter loved the pool and the barn with the dart board and various activities which kept her entertained with her Dad whilst I chilled in the peace and quiet. Lovely surroundings and very quiet. Great base to explore the area or to just sit in the lovely garden and read. The gite is a good size and had everything we needed. Great welcome back with amazing cheese. Keith and Keran can provide details of places to visit and the very near little towns have a good selection of supermarkets.

“Delightful stay in one of the best gites we have stayed in !”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having visited France and the Payes de Calis and Picardy areas - on several occasions over the years we can honestly say that this has been one of the cleanest, most comfortable and most well equipt gite we have stayed in.
On arrival we were welcomed with a delightful supply of fresh bread, cheese/s, butter, wines,fresh eggs and beautiful fresh flowers. Our beds were made up with lovely crisp linen and an abundance of towels were available to use in the bath room
Right away we felt looked after and new we would relax and enjoy our stay
We know the area quite well, but there is a host of information in the gite and Keith and Keran always had time to chat and tell us of local places of interest and places to eat.
Our son 14 and our daughter 8 took advantage of the swimming pool when the weather allowed and it was much appreciated by our daughter to be allowed to collect the chickens eggs and distribute them to our neighbours in the adjacent gites
Overall an excellent holiday of busy days out and about and being able to relax in comfort when at La Maison Lounge

“Perfect, just perfect”
Reviewed August 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

From the welcome pack waiting for you when you walk through the door, to the ambience, or the location, we found our second stay here just as good as the first one. We were in France to visit the Somme battlefield sites, and they lay 45 minutes away, so the location just outside of the busy war hubs was excellent. You are also handily placed for Calais, Dunkirk, and other historical places. Getting back in the evening, it was a pleasure to sit outside and have a chilled beer, or sit on the voluminous settee and read.

I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone for a great break away.

“Summer break 2016”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very welcoming hosts who looked after us well. The accommodation was clean and tidy with all the equipment you would need. Household linen good with a well equipped bathroom. Very comfortable settees and cosy log fire when it was cool and rainy. Very useful to have a washing machine and places to dry clothes.

The setting is rural with a farm like courtyard with shared garden and lots of seating outside. Inquisitive chickens joined us for coffee, It was easy to travel to nearby towns for provisions although we were welcomed by a well stocked basket of farm eggs and butter with wine bread and cheese. Thank you.
