Ideal for a short stay to visit the Somme Battlefields. Cottage clean and comfortable. Useful information on where to visit from Keith. Chickens/ducks and menagerie very entertaining. Would visit again.

Management response:

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our gite and for your lovely comments. We look forward to seeing you both again, sooner rather than later. Best regards Keith & Keran

We had a wonderful fortnight in this well-equipped gite. It is ideally located for the coast, countryside, Arras, Amiens, Lille and WWI sites. We explored, picnicked, went to the seaside, visited a chateau, the beautiful Jardins des Valloires, the regional Louvre in Lens, and honoured family who died in WWI. The gite is in a peaceful and beautiful rural location...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and you were both lovely people and it was a pleasure to meet you both

What a brilliant place to stay. Really good for getting away from it all. A pleasant gite in a quiet rural village, we loved it. Kieth and Keran made our stay really enjoyable. The welcome pack is so good we didn't need to go out for a meal on the first evening as originally planned. The chickens are entertaining, and...

About the neighbourhood
Situated in a quiet village in the 7 Vallees, between the French towns of Auxi-le-Chateau and Frevent, La Maison Longue is the perfect place to stay for a holiday in Pas de Calais. With the market towns of Hesdin, St Pol and Doullens only 20 minutes away and Arras, Abbeville and Amiens all within an hour’s drive, as are Montreuil, St Valery-sur-Somme, Le Crotoy and Le Touquet, our location means you can comfortably enjoy many of the tourist attractions and activities of the region and also the Somme.

The cottage is one of three at Le Petit Hameau, very well positioned for vising the many attractions of Pas de Calais and Picardy, and also close enough to visit romantic Paris, Palace of Versailles, Disneyland Paris and architectural Lille
