Description

Just a short drive from the northern ports of France, you can experience life in a real French château, with five acres of shared gardens and mature trees together with a lake

Just a short drive from the northern ports of France, you can experience life in a real French château, with five acres of shared gardens and mature trees together with a lake. The holiday properties have been lovingly restored by their English owners with great attention to detail and are within walking distance of Hesdin with its popular Thursday market, restaurants and bars to enjoy. The properties are ideally placed for exploring the 7 Vallées region with its pretty villages nestling in the valleys, yet under an hour from the lovely sandy beaches of the Côte d’Opale’s seaside resorts including Le Touquet and Hardelot. Enjoy the many summer festivals in the region, browse for bargains at the local brocantes or enjoy lunch and dinner in one of the many restaurants nearby. The area is very popular with walkers, cyclists and canoeists alike with excellent facilities nearby. Dine al fresco on the terrace in front of the château or enjoy a picnic in the grounds.

All on first floor: Living room. Dining room with doors to balcony terrace. Kitchen. Double bedroom. Shower room/WC.

Location: 300m from Marconne centre (shop, bar, restaurant), 700m from Hesdin (market, restaurants, bars, supermarket), 35km from Berck (beach).

Both properties: Shared 5-acre garden with lawned area and small lake (take care with children)

    A very interesting property to stay in, beautiful gardens and your own balcony, plenty of restaurants and bars nearby and lovely places to visit within an hours drive.

    This is a great place to say if you want to soak up the feeling of traditional French chateau decor but you're not too hung up on luxurious amenities. The apartment is spacious with a very generous hallway and an impressive staircase leading to a cute dining area then into an enormous lounge. There is a balcony with delightful views of the grounds. It can definitely be described as 'shabby chic' but for my taste it was rather more shabby than chic. Some of the chairs had lost their stuffing and the dining chairs were literally falling apart. Occasional chairs in the entrance hall were unusable with ripped covers and stuffing poking out. The kitchen was basic but adequate with a decent fridge and a basic cooker. The oven however was greasy and grubby inside which put us off using it, but the hob was fine. There is plenty of hot water although the kitchen tap is loose and very wobbly which makes it a bit tricky to use. The bedroom is adequate with a double bed, a chest of drawers and a good mirror, although there is nowhere to hang clothes up. I think I noticed a wardrobe downstairs but did not want to traipse down two flights of stairs to use that. The shower room is probably due an overhaul. There is little or no grout between the tiles which means that the tiles move underfoot. The loo and wash hand basin are basic but fine and the shower is a little dated. The shower tray fills with water during use and I had to turn it off and wait for the tray to empty before continuing. I'm not sure if that is a limitation of the plumbing or if it just needed a good helping of drain unblocker. The lounge is comfortable with a couple of armchairs and a sofa, a writing desk, TV and a fabulously large window overlooking the grounds. The grounds are very pretty and it literally is a short walk into nearby Hesdin. We visited in early September and very little was open. On a couple of evenings we could find no more than one or two restaurants open but generally the town has just about what you need. It's easy to buy groceries as there is a town centre convenience store as well as a couple of supermarkets just a few minutes away. We found that it was a short trip to places like Montreuil, Etaples and Le Touquet where there really was much more going on. The Turret apartment sleeps two but is part of a chateau containing another apartment with accommodation for ten people. The other apartment contains rooms that are above the Turret apartment and because of the wooden floors we were woken up around 6:30 am each morning by the clattering noise of the people above. All in all, I'd say this is quite a good base for a quiet holiday. It's an impressive looking building with ample parking but it's definitely in need of some attention. The paint on the exterior woodwork is flaking off and a slightly damp smell suggests some leakage to parts of the building. I would describe the amenities as basic rather than luxurious and some general maintenance is definitely needed. We booked for seven nights but left after four.

    You get more than the description tells you, the entrance hall you see is ALL yours, no-one else shares it, and once upstairs the landing is very large, and has a dining area for you to use. This opens via french doors onto a balcony, 10 feet by 8 feet with table, chairs and a BBQ that is available for you to use. The sun sets directly in front of the house, and when the weather is good the view over the parkland is terrific. If you want to lay in the sun, take your own sun-bed. The lounge is 20 feet by 20 feet, it DOES have a wardrobe in the turret, plenty big enough for most people. There is UK TV via SKY, nothing special, but there is a DVD player and a lot of DVD's Downside, no wifi. The bedroom is large with a large chest of drawers, and the en-suite is shower only. You genuinely CAN walk into Hesdin, some good places to eat, very reasonably priced too. Caretakers are friendly and helpful. All in all you get more than you expect, not less, if you want to relax and do very little this is a great place, near enough to bars without driving, but quiet enough to get a way from it all. I would definitely go again.
