Rose Cottage was the perfect gite, for 8 our first week and 4 the second. The welcome pack was very generous with fresh bread and lovely wine. Extremely well equipped gite, very clean and welcoming, any issues/concerns dealt with very promptly by onsite owners.
Mauprevoir is a couple of minutes away by car for the boulangerie and small supermarket – if you wanted fresh croissants/pain-au-chocolat then Gill will bake and deliver hers direct to your door – delicious.
La Logerie has plenty of space for the children to play independently when in sight (there is a stream through the grounds) and the pool was a great hit. Rose cottage also had ample private space outside too.
The local area has plenty to see and do; rivers, castles, ancient towns. We had our bikes with us and the disused railway line behind the property was the ideal place for family bike rides (children are 6 & 7), we cycled as far as the lake at St Martin L’Ars (12Km return trip) and would love to go further.
Very tranquil spot with only a little traffic noise from locals and farm vehicles – mainly you hear the wind in the trees, the stream and the local wildlife.
Well worth the drive for a family holiday, manageable in a day from southern UK (took us around 8hrs with stops from gite to Calais by motorway).
We look forward to returning.
