The
Experience

Sommelier in a restaurant in Lille, Jean-Marc won a Perrier contest on the luck of a draw. Off he tripped with his young wife and two children to a most emerald green valley and claimed a whitewashed, geranium-spilled, 18th-century country inn. Order a trout on the vine-covered terrace and back comes a live one in a bucket from their trout farm across the road by the river. Needless to say Jean-Marc’s exceptional wine list and creative use of local produce should lead to a prolonged stay (the nearby ramparts of Montreuil sur Mer are well worth a visit). Inside: wonky beams and low ceilings, a battery of copper pans behind the old zinc counter, deep green walls in the smaller dining room (our favourite), and all the cosiness of a modest country kitchen with open fires on chilly days. Bedrooms are snug, smallish and beamy, furnished with repro cherrywood antiques and refreshed with modern leather and wicker; bathrooms are spacious and airy. This may not be grand-chic but it’s an endearing address: an uncommon treat to find such good food combined with such perfect service.

Reviews

We stayed at short notice for one night en route to the tunnel; our room was spotlessly clean, cosy and full of character. Dinner in front of an open fire was absolutely first class, and demonstrated just how good French cuisine can be. Not to mention the wines to accompany the food... It was the kind of meal and service you hope to receive for a special occasion - which is exactly what Laurence turned it into for us. We will be back!

Ivan, Amersham

Ours was a one night stop over stay on the way to the Chunnel. Auberge D' Inxent is a real gem, lovely accommodation and excellent hospitality and Food from Jean-Marc and Laurence Six and at a very reasonable price

Martin, Cheltenham

I booked this for 6 of us on our motorcycles for our last night in france as it was not far from the tunnel & looked more interesting than a generic hotel. It was definitely the right choice. It is in a lovely quiet hamlet & is just perfect. From the beautifully clean rooms, comfortable beds & simply delicious food (the oh so fresh trout & those chocolates!) to the warm welcome and plentiful breakfast, we all loved this Auberge & the unassuming owner Our only regret; we were only staying one night. We will be back

Josie, Norwich

Great cosy Inn, with quirky touches. Lovely fires, great food and a fantastic wine list. Jean Marc very hospitable. Good find.

Kim, Goosnargh

Having had lunch there a couple of times (it's less than an hour's drive from Calais), we thought that it would be nice to stay. We were very pleased: comfortable rooms, lovely food, great service. Don't forget to visit the chocolate factory just down the road.

If I had a favourite place to stay, this would have to be it. Perhaps not everyone's ideal (no tv, no wifi) but an oasis of calm and civility in the delightful Vallée de la Course. Just 40 miles from Calais, this is our reward after the gruelling drive from the N. East, and our battery-charge for the return. Only 5 rooms (so book early!) comfortable, clean, simply but tastefully decorated, and so quiet. But the real treasure is below, in the restaurant which champions local produce, proudly presented with confidence in its excellence -délicieux - and supported by such a wine list - formidable.

Stayed before and will stay again. Warm welcome, clean rooms and superb food. What more could you want.
