“A peaceful setting in the countryside of Northern France”
Reviewed 9 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Le Petit Chateau during a weekend break in Northern France with some friends. We drove to the accommodation from Calais and found the journey to be relatively straight forward following first the A16 motorway (note that part of this route is a toll road), and then the D939 before switching to the local roads to the village of Willeman. Our hosts had kindly provided instructions for the journey but if you are making the journey yourself, you may find it an advantage to have either a Sat Nav or a good map to help you.
Le Petit Chateau, is located at one end of a pretty little village street and near to the seventeenth century manor house, ‘Manoir de Vallières Chateu’. It is an attractive brick built building which sits in its own grounds and features running water passing through the garden and joining with the stream which runs through the village. The village itself is surrounded by farmland and has minimal passing traffic so is very quiet and at night time when we arrived, dark enough to clearly see the stars in the night sky, and hear owls hooting.
It is fair to say that none of our party are ‘fluent’ in French, however this was not a problem at the accommodation as your hostess Madeleine is English and fluent in French.
The room accommodation is located on the ground floor and consists of two bedrooms, one double and one twin, and a separate large bathroom equipped with basin, bath, shower, bidet and toilet. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the windows fitted with manually operated blinds which when closed shuts out all external light. The double room was equipped with a large wardrobe and drawer unit with room lights switchable from the bedside. A small dressing table with tea and coffee making facilities and a bottle of water, was also available through there was no mirror in the room. A television was provided though we did not use this facility. We had no problems sleeping at night and found the double bed very comfortable as it had a memory foam mattress.
Guests may use the living room which also doubles as the dining room having a table at one end and armchairs and a sofa at the other. The venue has a folder of pamphlets detailing local attractions if you are seeking ideas for trips out.
Our hosts provided some very good meals during our stay including a small meal for our (late) arrival on Friday night, which was very well received as we had been travelling since early afternoon. Breakfasts were a mixture of croissants, pain au chocolates, fruit and yoghurts accompanied by fruit juices tea and coffee. On the Saturday evening we were treated to a fabulous four course meal of traditional French cuisine which was very well cooked and satisfying, evening meals were served complete with wine
If you have the time, it is worth taking a walk through the village of Willeman following the road from the old Chateau up to the lovely old village church with its war memorial and churchyard, unfortunately we were unable to enter the church at the time of our visit (early evening). The road follows the stream running through the village and the surrounding fields some with livestock, makes it a very pleasant walk especially if working up an appetite for the evening meal.
The village of Willeman provides a well-placed base for exploring a region of Northern France soaked in history and during our visit we made trips to the city of Arras, the battlefields of Vimy Ridge and Azincourt and also the seaside resort of Le Touquet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Petit Chateau, we were made most welcome by our hosts and because the accommodation does not have the formality of a more conventional bed and breakfast the experience is more akin to spending the weekend with friends at their house. We would recommend a stay here for families; or couples looking to explore this part of France or even those with an interest in military history and keen to explore the various battlefields in this region.

“Superb Second Visit, excellent hosts”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We returned for a three night break to explore the area again, and enjoy a taste of France. It is great to travel only 75 minutes from Calais, and yet feel immersed in rural France, but with so much to see and do on the doorstep. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious., with a large bathroom for our own use, all on the ground floor, and overlooking the large garden. The village is very quiet and peaceful, yet only 10-15minutes from Hesdin, where there is a great market on Thursday mornings and shops and places to eat out or enjoy a coffee overlooking the market square. We had another of Madeleine's delicious 4 course meals, with lovely wine and Zaviers chocolate mousse. Breakfasts are delicious too, with fruit juice, fresh fruit cocktail, croissants, yoghurt and tea or coffee. The family are very friendly and relaxed. We will definitely be back.

“Welcome English Calais stop-over in rural France”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This Chambre d'hotes is a modern property located in a beautiful, very rural location, although it is not isolated as there are other properties nearby. We found Willeman to be about 20 mins from Hesdin (worth visiting) and we found Google maps helpful to locate Le Petit Chateau itself.

The room and bathroom were very clean, reasonably spacious and well up to date with a tv, tea/coffee facilities, full shower, bidet, etc.

The host family is French-English.

An evening meal was offered with consideration to dietary requirements and we had the less extensive of the two options. It was a delicious meal, the best we had on our two week French holiday. The following morning there was a lovely breakfast with a few nice “touches” such as tumblers of fruit.

Madelaine made our one night stay most enjoyable. She is friendly, outgoing and it was most interesting to learn about living in France. We had a lovely stay.

“Beautiful setting, superb host!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay with Madeleine, Xavier and their family. The house is beautiful, in a peaceful setting with a fantastic garden. The bedrooms and bathroom were well presented and comfortable, and the meals provided were delicious and plentiful.
Our 4 year old son particularly enjoyed the tour of Xavier's tractor, combine harvester and the new born calves.
The house is easy to find and a welcome stop after the journey from England.
Many thanks.
