“Perfect pet friendly accommodation”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Having stayed here before and loving the property and location we decided to visit again this year. We don't generally revisit the same place twice as there are so many areas to see and explore, however, this property is exceptional and the owners are such wonderful people. I have reviewed this property before following our visit in 2015 and everything I said then remains the same today. Arras is nearby and is truly beautiful and everything you need is available a short drive away. There is much to see and do locally and the house and gardens are so relaxing and wonderful to spend time in. Marie-Madeline and Jean-Claude are exceptional hosts and they do their utmost to ensure that guests are made welcome and that their every need is catered for. I can recommend this house whole-heartedly and we spent the last 4 days of our holiday in the caravan in the grounds and I will be reviewing that separately.

Wonderfully friendly welcome. Great location and facilities at gite de la Fountaine. Ideal accommodation if you are looking to visit the WWI cemeteries and memorials.

“lovely property in quiet village, very friendly and helpful owners”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here so that we could explore the near by WW1 memorials. Jean-Claude and his family were wonderful hosts helping with every query even picking up my parents from the station. The house was more than adequate for us a party of seven adults. Kitchen had everything we needed and jean-Claude even delivered fresh bread every morning. The village is nice and quiet, about 20mins to Arras. We recommend this rental especially if you like us are exploring the surrrounding war history.

“Just about Perfect”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stopped here recently because we prefer the quiet of a rural setting rather than the bustle of town and city. The cottage is well proportioned, spacious, traditional in style and decor; and amply stocked with modern appliances. Comfortable beds. A real home from home. There is a pleasant garden to sit in, space to park off road. For those who enjoy games - There is a pool table, table football, darts, and table tennis. Great for family spirit and competition. For the more adventurous there are cycles in the garage. The roads and quiet lanes are ideal for cycling along and there are several circular routes that can be enjoyed. The owners Mary Magdalene and Jean-Claude live next door. Their welcome engulfs you. Fresh bread and croissants from the local bakery are left daily for visitors. Jean-Claude can also help out with information if you are there to visit cemeteries and battle sites from the Great War period; which was the reason for our journey to Northern France. This cottage, and its locality, is just about the perfect place to spend some time. A well stocked supermarket is just a couple of miles away; and the vibrant town of Arras not much further. I can usually find a negative but not this time.

“Perfect accommodation.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The accommodation was used as a base for cycling out to nearby WW1 sites. Rooms were certainly ok and perfectly adequate for our needs. BBQ was used each night for meals in the pleasant garden. The owners were were very friendly and helpful. The early morning delivery from them of warm bread and croissants was an unexpected bonus and was a nice touch.
The surrounding area was perfect for biking and for exploring all the WW1 sites and memorials. Can recommend it highly...
