An endearing place with an owner to match. Chatty hard-working Marie-Christine does everything herself in her pretty red-brick home; she’s even built a treehouse in the garden. Stay in the family suite in the main house, a wonderland of plants and collected items old and new, or the independent wooden-decked apartment. It comes without a sitting room but Madame has buckets of personality to make up for this, and you can dine outside on that high decked terrace. Evergreens and shrubs provide the backdrop, fields surround you, Calais and Belgium are less than 30 minutes away. Wander the dunes, cycle, fish.
