After a long day in the car, it was wonderful to turn up at the Clos de la Prairie to a very warm welcome. The weather, in late September, was not ideal, dank and drizzly,but we were led to our room, and it really was beautiful..Huge glass windows, floor to ceiling, looking out across untouched countryside. The bathroom was in fact a "wet room" and top of the range modern. This was quite one of the nicest rooms we've had in our years of French travelling. We had tea/coffee making facilities, but no milk, but this was produced instantly with a smile. We could not have been more comfortable.
Dinner was excellent - a small set menu, although two of the items we chose had a surcharge (always a little annoying). I have to say though we did have the best foie gras I have ever eaten, and I have sampled very many versions over the years. Breakfast too was superb - original and beautifully presented. Sebastian is without doubt a wonderful chef.
The only down side for us was that we were the only people staying and having dinner on that night, and it made the whole experience a little low key. One other point I would make, which is strange after my last remark, is that if other people had been there, and the weather good, I think the rooms would have a lack of privacy. The sliding windows open on to a terrace which runs the length of the building, with no divisions, so if sitting outside everyone would have been very on top of each other. Maybe some high pot plants between rooms would have helped?
If in the area I would certainly go again and it is about an hour from Calais, so ideal for an overnight stop on the way home.
