Poppy Cottage - From €550 - €750 per Week
Complete with its own beach hut*, the gorgeous Poppy Cottage makes for a great family beach holiday in France! Yet it’s just 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 of Saint Valery-sur-Somme, voted second-best village in a recent poll by France 3. The Baie de Somme is noted for its prolific wildlife, and is listed as a “Grand Site de France”.
Poppy Cottage, its name inspired by the remembrance flower so prolific in Somme battlefields nearby, comprises an entrance hall, lounge, well-equipped kitchen/diner, and two bedrooms, one double, one twin beds, a bathroom with modern walk-in shower as well as an original French slipper bath, and loo.
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
Poppy 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 in the quiet, one-way lane.
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 welcome, and an English-speaking vet is within two minutes walk for pet passport formalities.
Free mountain bikes and beach hut.
Four adult mountain bikes are at your disposal, as well as, during the season *May to September, exclusive use of a fully-equipped beach hut on Saint Valery beach nearby! All bed linen and towels are provided free, and the beds made up ready for your arrival.
For larger parties
Captain’s Cottage next door is the same layout except for twin beds in both bedrooms and a more nautical décor. It is similarly equipped, with a large cool patio for memorable barbecues. Booked together, they make ideal accommodation for a larger family, or any party of up to eight people.
