The Experience

Start the day beneath an exquisite chandelier. The owners’ attention to detail is amazing, from the 18th-century mirrors, period furniture, art and figurines in harmony with the house to the parade of fruits, pastries, cake and homemade jams at breakfast.

Your engaging hosts love their guests and their house, and they know the historic town of Arras well. From this small street everything is walkable and that includes the squares, magnificently ringed with Flemish-Baroque architecture. Have a coffee outside or enjoy a plate of ‘andouillette’ at one of the cafés on the Place des Héros or Grand Place.

Arras is at the heart of WWI history, and the surrounding countryside is dotted with cemeteries. In 20 minutes you can walk to the Carrière Wellington, the memorial to the tunnels dug by the New Zealand regiment. The guided tour is poignant. Return to sit in the beautiful walled garden or inviting sitting room and plan your next day’s exploration of this fascinating town.

Accommodation

Reviews

It would be a treat to stay in this stunning 18th-century house. Isabelle and Jean-Luc are charming hosts and very happy to share their extensive knowledge of the attractive town of Arras and the surrounding area. An ideal place for a stopover on the way south or for a longer stay to discover the town and the nearby First World War sites.

Location

The neighbourhood

With its Unesco-protected architecture and WWI history, Arras is an ideal stopover if you’re heading south from Calais. The cobbled centre (10 minutes away) has grand squares, Saturday markets, cafés, boutiques and artisan shops. Visit the Musée des Beaux Arts in the Quartier des Arts, and the Boves network of tunnels that housed the Allied troops massing for the 1917 Arras Offensive. A free shuttle bus to the train station runs close by the house.
