A one week stay at a French Farmhouse.

  • 5 of 5

Our Gite was in excellent condition with all the necessary amenities available to us. The location was ideal for the purpose of our visit which was to see the WW1 battlefields. Although it was a working farm it was extremely peaceful. The hosts were available if we required any help. The on-site dairy shop came in handy as the nearest supermarket was about 10 mins away.

Thanks once again to Francin and Jean Luc.

The property is situated in a small quaint village in the middle of nowhere but was in the best position to travel/explore around Northern France. The flat that these people provided was exceptional, it was spotlessly clean and it had every kitchen utensil that you needed. The flat is very spacious but beware of the low ceilings! Bed linen and towels were provided which was great. It is an active dairy farm and we were treated to a guided tour around the farm by Jean-Claude and was also treated to the delightful products that Francine made using their produce. I would highly recommend this property and it was very reasonable as well! Thank you for your generous hospitality and kindness.

Very pleasant.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice 2-night stay at the farm and appreciate the beautiful pat of farm butter and fromage frais that Francine's daughter gave us on arrival. Unfortunately the farm shop wasn't open while we were there so we weren't able to stock up with any other goodies and we hadn't realised that the actual farm animals were elsewhere in the village so not accessible for our children to see, but as we only had a short stay there, it was not a problem. The accommodation had everything we needed and was very clean.

Wonderful find

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable cottage with lots of little extras, including a custard tart on arrival.

Just mind don't bump your head on ceiling in places. Hosts were lovely but we had very little French and they had a little English so we got by.

Cozy Farmstead in Northern France

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at M. & Mme Lefranc’s farm. It was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The apartment was fully outfitted. We really enjoyed eating meals on the terrace in the evenings. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. Would recommend for any travellers in the area visiting major WWI sites.

Francine et Jean-Claude, nous allons nous souvenir de notre séjour à votre ferme pour longtemps. Merci pour la tarte délicieuse, d’avoir pris le temps de nous montrer votre ferme et les souvenirs historiques de la guerre. Nous espérons restez chez vous encore au futur! Merci!!

Lovely place to stay and tour northern France

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay and was most welcomed by Francine and Jean-Claude. Great base if you want to tour Arras and Northern France including WWI battle fields and cemetery’s. A Very clean and tidy place to stay. Very rural if you like the country side. The farm which we stayed makes really nice milk products which includes Yogurt, butter, custard tart and other lovely goodies. We didn’t speak much French so this was a bit of a huddle but we got by.

If you like peace and quiet and the rural life and touring then this is the place to stay.

Our thanks to Francine and Jean-Claude for a lovely time.
