“Good location to tour from”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Less than an hour from Calais is this delightful gite set in the countryside with good roads linking to local villages and larger towns like St Omer, Montrueil etc. Excellent for touring. The gite has three bedrooms but for just the two of us we used the comfortable double room on the ground floor near to shower room and toilet. With a full kitchen everything we needed was at hand. In warmer months the patio faces towards the sunset and has a small bbq and table and chairs which would be very useful. Lieve was extremely pleasant and helpful and we wish her well in her future plans to develop her business and will re-visit when next in this area of France.

“Really enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Travelled from London with my husband and young son (2 years old) for a short break. We took the eurotunnel and drove the rest. Firstly the journey was handy and the directions to the gite very good. The welcome was very nice from Graham and Ann and they told us all we need to know about the local area. The gite is very nice, clean and well laid out - everything you need is there. As others have said there are supermarkets etc close. We drove to Le Touquet and also St Omer, Both great places and worth a visit. All in all a fantastix break, our son loved the animals - i reckon we'll be back.

“Fantastic Stay, second time even better than the first”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I tend to avoid staying at the same place two years in a row however this time the choice to come back to Le Grand Marais couldn't have been more rewarding.

Ann and Graham, the owners, have clearly invested a lot of love and care in updating the Gites and maintaining the outside area. We stayed in Emerald again which was spotlessly clean with all mod cons and even had a brand new shower installed . Our three year old absolutely loved playing outside on the large grassy area with the trampoline and the mini soccer goal. For those evenings when the weather wasn't that kind we had the well equipped games room to keep him occupied.

As this was our second stay we were slightly more adventurous in exploring the surrounding area but we really didn't have to go very far. Whilst you have a small brasserie a short walk away in Fauquembourgs, if you go 5 minutes down the road to Thiembronne there are a couple of fantastic restaurants, classic French bakery and two supermarkets and lots more.

We would highly recommend a stay at the Le Grand Marais to anyone who was planning to holiday in the area, we'll definitely be back.

“Chillax to the max!”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just returned home from one of the most relaxing holidays I've had in a long time.

Spotless on arrival and welcomed with some fresh eggs from the farm hens, the Gite provided the perfect break from city life for my wife and I.

The local town and supermarket are a 5 minute drive away but the rural setting and the peace & quiet made it the perfect setting for us.

We will definitely come back at some point.

“Great time, thanks to Ann and Graham for a wonderful stay.”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great location, good facilities, wonderful time had by the whole family. We had some great weather but a couple of damp days. The play room for the kids worth its weight in gold.
