You will be staying in a typical French village. There is an artisan bakers in the village, also, mobile bakers and butchers that visit 2-3 times per week. However, most people use the town shops which are only a short drive. Our nearest restaurant is in the next village. It is an auberge which is a country inn open at some lunch times and weekends. A must if you want traditional French cooking at it's best.We can help you with booking. They are also have a shop In Hesdin, selling some of the produce they use in the restaurant and other locally sourced items. There are many restaurants in Hesdin as well as banks, bars, bakers etc.. Hesdin forest is also a short drive. Ideal for walking and cycling. There are lots of deer in the Forest. There are several local fishing lakes. Fly over the local area or beaches with a pleasure flight from Abbeville airport.
A car is essential as the village is very rural. If you bring bicycles, they can be stored in the garage. There are a couple of bikes in the garage if you wish to use them at your own risk.. Rural France is a favourite among walkers with country lanes right on your doorstep. There is a train station in Hesdin.

We have been lucky enough to have our holiday home for over 12 years now. We started letting the house for holidays a couple of years ago to help offset the expenses. We have been very pleased to hear that our guests love it as much as we do. We have become real francophiles and hope to maybe retire to France in the future. You should find everything you need (not just the basics). We are happy for you to use anything in the house. If something runs out, just replace it. Make yourselves at home and enjoy the French way of life.
