Visit the hilltop town of Cassel with its impressive views across the Flanders region, its 18th-century wooden windmill, cobbled square and lovely views. The market town of Saint-Omer, famous for its waterways and unique way of farming vegetables in the marshes, is just 8km away. Take a traditional barge ride around the canals or stroll through the public gardens.
Nearby is Arques, famous worldwide for its glassmaking; take a tour around the factory and shop for souvenirs in the factory shop. The sandy beaches of Malo-les-Bains are a short drive away, where you can enjoy miles and miles of unspoilt sand and a great selection of bars and restaurants. Further afield, the Belgian city of Bruges makes an interesting day out, or visit Lille. Historians can enjoy Ypres, Dunkirk and the battlefields of the Somme and Agincourt. Popular sports in the region are cycling and fishing, and walkers can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding landscapes. Beach 40km. Shop 4km and restaurant 300m.

    This is a lovely old character property dating from 1700's with much history situated in the centre of a small village close to the church. The accommodation was functional & comfortable & adequate for our needs. We were a group of 3 (a couple + 1 single) so there was plenty of space with a choice of bedrooms - there are bedrooms on the ground & first floors, with a shower room & separate toilet to the ground floor then bathroom (shower over bath) & toilet to the first floor, meaning we each had our own privacy & facilities; we all found the beds comfortable. Towels & bedding are provided. Each floor has a separate water tank with plenty of hot water and good showers. Heating is provided by electric wall heaters & you pay separately for the electric by euros at the end of your stay - the weather was a little chilly for the first couple of days (mid May); we only used the heater in the kitchen occasionally, the lounge for a couple of hours each of those days, then the bathroom towel rail for morning showers - cost for the week was circa 13 euros so very minimal add-on cost. The kitchen was well equipped and the hob, separate oven & microwave meant we were able to self-cater very easily. There is a private gravelled courtyard with planted area & a few folding camping-style chairs available - outside dining is by way of a picnic-style table with benches. It is quite a suntrap for late afternoon & evening 'sunning' after a busy day's sightseeing & the resident birds' birdsong was a delight. The nearby church does have the bells rung but this seemed to cease after 10pm & not start until 7am, with occasional peels (which we assume were for services) - we didn't find this a problem but if you are sensitive to noise don't let it put you off, just take ear-plugs just in case :) Large English TV to the lounge with plenty of seating. Pre-arrival information was clear & helpful, in-property information detailed & local English agent on hand if we needed her. There was plenty of free parking nearby in the car park opposite the end of the property.

    Had a very good holiday here, with plenty of helpful advice from the English owner online and a visit from the local English lady and gentleman who help look after the house. Well equipped with plenty of room for all ten of us. Location is very good (only just over half and hour from Dunkirk) and we made good use of the local boulangerie which is within easy walking distance. Ideal site for visiting Ypres and other war sites, St Omer is nearby and also it's a shortish trip to Bruges. Only issue we had was with the electricity supply which "tripped" when we needed both heating (at the beginning of the week) and to use appliances at the same time. We were warned about this by the owner prior to arriving (it's a French supply issue) and once the weather warmed up it was no longer a problem. Very good value for money.
