No one from London goes to Nord Pas de Calais for the weekend for some reason...it does not hold any 'major attractions'. To me that was its charm. This is a rural vegetable growing area and in the middle of the peaceful villages is this fabulous hotel - former chateau surrounded by forest and well...vegetable farms. We had a room in the Pavilion Annex and I would suggest those rooms - they are purpose built and spacious. Ours was a mezzanine level room so the boys went outside...views were across fields and forests. Perfect for someone used to inner city brick and mortar. The pool was big, modern and well heated and in a wonderful room surrounded by glass. It kept the boys occupied for hours. The restaurant was elegant and reasonably priced. The hotel lends out bicycles for a token around and it was safe and peaceful and very interesting to ride around the area. And there is a tennis court. It looked a bit sad but it was almost winter when we were there. The nearby town of Saint Omer is charming but no great tourist attraction - again, its charm. We will return again next year for a three day break. To train from London to Lille and pick up a car and drive 45 minutes to somewhere like this is a real treat!
