Stroll the rambling statue'd grounds, enjoy lunch in historic Boulogne, cycle to seaside Wimereux, return to comfort, calm and space

Read guest comments

Friendly Catherine lends you bikes – so pedal off to Wimereux, a sweet seaside town a mile down the road. Then return to a 18th-century house in the lee of a village church, its long elegant façade distinguished by tall white windows perfectly beshuttered. Fresh, spacious and uncluttered is the guest bedroom, with views to a beautiful front garden, and it's a treat to stroll the rambling grounds, dotted with statues, punctuated by topiary. Wake to fresh local croissants and homemade jams; set off for the markets and shops of Boulogne… and a lovely lunch in the historic old town. The coastline is wild and wonderful.

"As frequent visitors of high end B&Bs the Villa Sainte-Claire ranks among the very top. Housed in a most charming 18th century mansion with original boards and doors, the tastefully decorated rooms overlook the vast park, a bucolic treasure in the village center. We were lucky to have excellent weather conditions and could enjoy the excellent breakfast on the terrace. But, next to these 'material' qualities, there is the extraordinary hospitality of Catherine, which we will always remember. As, Tine, my Dutch wife said:"Wat een gastvrijheid!""

"We had a fantastic time at Villa Saint Claire last weekend with our son Nicolaas who is 2.5 years old. We were made to feel very welcome by Catherine. Stunning location and beautiful property. Fresh croissants and pain au chocolat for breakfast and much more. Care was taken to provide a relaxing a very comfortable stay, lovely bright room and excellent decor. The only problem was , we only stayed one night ! We will definitely return to this beautiful place ! Highly recommended and thank you catherine"

"Our second stay in this beautiful house with lovely, welcoming owner, Catherine. 20 minute walk into Wimereux for evening meal, through a delightful country park alongside the river, only minutes from the house. On second night we ate at La Petite Brocante, a fabulous little restaurant in Wimille.Our room was spacious with lovely furnishings, huge, very comfortable bed and modern shower facilities. It overlooks the beautiful gardens which are quite extensive with plenty of outdoor seating. Wonderful breakfasts with fresh fruit, home made pastries, croissants, fresh bread etc. "

"We had a lovely stay for my birthday in this very elegant house. Lovely welcome from Catherine, who also provided a superb breakfast the next morning in her beautiful dining room. Our room could not be faulted, far better than any 4 star hotel. Catherine reserved a table for us at the very local "La Petite Brocante" restaurant (only minutes away) where we had an excellent meal in very convivial surroundings. All in all, a wonderful birthday weekend. We shall definitely return. Wimille is only 20 minutes walk from Wimereux, a delightful coastal town, so an ideal location for summer break."

"A sublime location which cannot be rated highly enough. Our hosts were charming and helpfull in the extreme. The rooms like a retreat you only dream of. Cathrine and Betrand are marvellous hosts. I can't wait to return. "

"It would be hard to imagine a more lovely place to stay or a more welcoming and attentive host than Catherine. Strongly recommended and we hope to go back soon!"

"The Villa St Clair is a paradise (and so convenient). The garden is a beautiful place. In addition, the hosts were so very kind and went far beyond their duties. I had a sprained ankle, and they took us to and from a restaurant, - and would not let us pay for this. Definitely go to the Villa St Clair!"

"An absolute gem of a place; beautifully quiet and restful and our hosts were lovely. Gorgeous breakfasts laid out on the table in the garden greeted us each morning. The town of Wimereux is nearby for a bit of bustle and a lovely beach and an even lovelier chocolate shop! Will return."

"A really lovely house, everything you would expect from the photos. Catherine is a welcoming and charming host and her breakfasts were delicious with the freshly squeezed orange juice a real treat. The bedroom is most comfortable and tastefully decorated and offers total privacy. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the local restaurant and there is such a lot to do and see around the area. Definitely due a return visit."

"We stayed a night on a last-minute 2-day trip to Calais (Eurotunnel do a good overnight deal) and felt like we'd had a week's holiday. Catherine replied to my late-night email first thing the next morning. Even more beautiful than in the photographs, we had a very comfortable room with typical old chateau doors and windows - everything restored by the owners, who were so welcoming and suggested watching the sunset in Wimereux and a lovely walk in the hidden Denacres valley. Delicious croissants and bread for breakfast with home-made jam. Our daughter loved their very friendly dog best of all!"

"This was the second time we had stayed here - first time was in the house itself - beautiful double room. Breakfast was delicious too, which is eaten downstairs. As it was cold, she had lit the fire - the owner is absolutely charming and really friendly. We borrowed the bikes in the afternoon to check out a restaurant for supper and then walked into town that evening. We had such a good stay that we visited again with our 15 year old daughter & her friend between Christmas & New Year where we stayed in the lodge. Very basic but warm & cosy. DVD player, games etc. Can't recommend enough."

"Charming hosts, beautiful house and garden, and every morning a delicious breakfast with a special treat of homemade pastries! We would certainly visit again, maybe next time try a night in the new "gypsy caravan"! Madame Debatte thought of everything and provided toiletries a plenty and even the necessary corkscrew! We had a lovely time! "

"Tucked away from the bustle of Wimereaux, but within walking distance was this gem, A beautiful house with garden and wooded area, it was peaceful and restful. The owners were charming and made us most welcome. The breakfast was , as usual in France, quite excellent and we would most certainly stay there again, possibly for longer. Lovely restaurant 5 minutes walk away in the village. great place. "

"Certainly a VERY special place. A beautiful charming house and hostess - a place for relaxation and peace but also an exciting place for our 8 year old son to stay. Perfect for all."

"Without a doubt, one of the nicest places we have stayed in our drives through France. The house and gardens are charming and we received a wonderful welcome from Catherine and her family. We'll be returning."

"We stayed at La Villa Sainte Claire for one night en route back home at the end of our holiday but would definitely rush back. The location is perfect - only 30 minutes from Calais but in a very pretty quiet village by the coast. The accommodation is wonderful - clean, comfortable and very relaxing with views over the garden and trees. There was room to accommodate two baby beds so our 22-month old twins also gave it a thumbs up. The large garden, gravel drive, dogs and toys kept them amused and they really loved this place too. Catherine was a great host and made us feel at home immediately - despite the late hour of our arrival. She provided a wonderful breakfast of fruit, yogurt, bread and pastries and we really enjoyed chatting with her. We felt as if we'd been welcomed into her home rather than simply staying at a guest house."
