Captain’s Cottage - From €550 - €750 per Week
Head to the seaside for a family holiday in the gorgeous Captain’s Cottage in the popular resort of Saint Valery-sur-Somme, voted second-best loved village in a recent poll by France 3, and in the Baie de Somme with its prolific wildlife. Yet it’s only a one-hour easy drive from Calais ferries or Tunnel.
Completely renovated and modernised in 2016, this charming listed seaside cottage offers cosy and comfortable accommodation for two or four, within a few minutes’ walk of the historic medieval Old Town, and all the restaurants and places of interest the town has to offer.
Captain’s Cottage comprises an entrance hall, lounge, fully-equipped kitchen/diner, and two bedrooms, both with twin beds, a bathroom with modern walk-in shower, as well as a French slipper-bath and loo. All bed linen and towels are provided free, and the beds made up ready for your arrival.
The cottage is comfortably equipped, and offers flat-screen television of English and French channels, DVD player, wi-fi for your laptop and phone, and a mini CD hi-fi system.
The well-equipped kitchen has microwave, fridge, and electric hob and oven. A range of books and games, plus a comprehensive guide to the cottage and Saint Valery, are provided and a child’s travel cot and high chair can also be arranged. A launderette is a short walk away, as is a mini-supermarket, tabac, and two excellent boulangeries for your breakfast croissants or baguette.
Patio & garden
Captain’s Cottage has its own sun patio/barbecue area and a lawned sunbathing/play area, with barbecue equipment and garden sunloungers. Patio furniture is provided. Free street parking for one or two cars is immediately outside, and adult mountain bikes are provided.
The pretty gardens are fenced and safe for children to play in, and a variety of outdoor games are provided. Sadly, the approach steps make the cottage unsuitable for wheelchairs. Well-behaved pets are welcome, and there is an English-speaking vet within two minutes walk.
For larger parties
Poppy Cottage next door is the same layout except for a double bed in one bedroom and a more nautical décor. It is similarly well equipped, with a sun patio for memorable barbecues. Booked together, they make ideal accommodation for a larger family, or any party of up to eight people.
