    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    This is the PERFECT location for when you really want to escape the rat-race and recharge your batteries!

    Nestled in the picturesque Seven Valleys, overlooking a stream, pasture land ... cows, ducks, pheasants, woodpeckers... we are just an hours easy drive south-east of the tunnel/ferries..

    Your accommodation is a stand-alone, 2-floored, 2-bedroom cottage in a quiet, small “village that time forgot” (Embry). The Cottage is very comfortable and extremely well equipped and provides free Wi-Fi.

    In summer enjoy an evening drink on your own terrace, under the trees (perhaps light up the barbeque) and soak up the peace and quiet.

    The cottage shares a large property with the English-speaking Kiwi owners who live in the adjacent 'grand maison' and one of us is always on-hand....

Embry is a small village in the Nord Pas de Calais. We arrived to be welcomed by Annette - a very friendly, pleasant lady. We were made to feel extremely welcome. The accommodation is great, spotless and everything we needed was there. Annette and her husband Geoff have 4 cats and we were regularly visited by Bugga who loved to... more

Great welcome and explanation by host Annette. Lots of lovely thoughtful touches in the house and whatever we needed was there! Annette had gone out of her way to ensure that we would be comfortable (I have a bad back) and had put a special mattress topper on the bed - bliss. There was a welcome bottle of bubbly in... more

In the very peaceful village of Embry, this is by far and away the best equipped Gite I have stayed in. We were given a very warm welcome by the owner on our arrival and made to feel at home. It's within striking distance of the coast...Le Touqet, Berck and the picturesque Montreuil. Lots of info sheets in the house.... more
