Property description

The Château de la Vallee is idyllically set on the edge of a village by beautiful rolling countryside next to the lush Forest of Eu. The two wings of the Chateau - which each have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms - and its Cottage with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom are fantastic self-catering summer and winter rental properties which have been lovingly renovated retaining a vast array of original features without being too formal - no priceless antiques for parents of young children to worry about! Both properties are furnished in a period style in keeping with their rustic surroundings and provide lots of little luxuries that make a holiday here something quite special. The owners particularly welcome families with children and have concentrated on making it a fantastic and safe place for everyone to have a relaxed, laid-back and wonderful holiday. Rent one or two wings or all three properties for parties of up to 26 people.


It’s the perfect destination for a family summer holiday, a weekend reunion of friends and family and is also a romantic winter retreat or as an idyllic base for an activity holiday all the year round with so much on offer in the region including golf, fishing, cycling, hiking, walking, motocross, quadbiking, horse riding and green-laning as well as historical sites such as the landing beaches and numerous chateaux to visit.

There are numerous theme parks within reach to delight the children as well as plenty of other child-friendly activities. Many of our summer guests come back in the winter months to make the most of the beautiful countryside and to enjoy the natural beauty of the region which has so much to offer all the year round. There are several riding schools in the area, catering for everyone from age three upwards. There is lots of fishing in the region. There are two quad biking tracks within 10 minutes drive. The area is very popular for green-laning.

There are many fantastic brocantes every Sunday during the summer – highly recommended and a great and very French day out for all the family. There is golf at Le Touquet. There are wonderful cycle paths, walks and picnicking areas in the forest of Eu, two minutes away. There is amazing wildlife to watch. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the area. There are expansive pebble beaches at Criel-sur-Mer and Mers-les-Bain and sandy beaches at Le Crotoy. There’s the bird sanctuary to visit at Marquenterre. There’s a great fish market and a casino at Le Treport. There’s a water park, Bagatelle, near le Touquet. Paris can easily be done in a day trip. Disneyland and Parc Asterix can be done each in a day. There’s Monet’s garden to visit at Giverny. So much to do for everyone.

ASK ABOUT OUR WEEKEND SPECIALS! The Chateau and Cottage are idyllically set on the edge of a village in beautiful rolling countryside next to the lush Forest of Eu. The beach is just a 15 minute scenic drive away and the cities of Dieppe and Abbeville are just half an hour away, while Paris is an easy two hour drive. Grandcourt is a typical pretty French country village with a breathtaking church and just two shops – a grocers, and that all-important bakers where after a three minute walk you will be able to buy your freshly baked bread and croissants each morning for breakfast. The village also has its own very authentic bar. The locals are very friendly and it’s impossible to pass someone in the street without them saying a friendly “bonjour”. Less than 10 minutes drive through the forest brings you to the picturesque market town of Blangy-sur-Bresle with its lively Sunday morning market and eclectic collection of shops as well as a large supermarket.
