Testimonials

We have enjoyed a really wonderful week in this beautiful house and were most pleasantly surprised to see the spacious accommodation and garden area. The house is very well equipped with dishwasher, television, internet access and numerous games and pastimes, including a superb ping-pong table which we all used a lot! Vieil Hesdin itself is very peaceful but is in easy reach of Hesdin, Montreuil, Abbeville, Arras, Azincourt and, of course, the beaches. The Carrefour at Hesdin is just a few miles away and the Thursday market seems to cover much of the town and is quite an experience. We would really recommend Maison Sainte Colette for a memorable taste of France in lovely surroundings. We will be returning!!

My husband and I really appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the herb garden. Credit crunch meant that we ate in more than I would have liked! So the quality of the kitchen equipment meant that we were really happy to cook in at the house.

Just a quick mail to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful farmhouse. We had a wonderful time there. Your house is so welcoming and homely.  Home away from home. By far the best rental property we’ve ever had.

We will definitely recommend this wonderful house to our friends and we will certainly be booking again.

Thank you so much for the use of Maison Colette’, we all thoroughly enjoyed the break.

The boys loved the outside space, the gardens, bikes, climbing frame and table tennis. This was a great bonus because they never got bored which meant that we in turn could relax.

May I congratulate you on providing a lovely house in a perfect location for a relaxing and most enjoyable holiday. It was one of the most comfortable, spacious and well equipped holiday houses we have ever stayed in and will be recommending it to our friends.

So pleased we decided to stay here, it was just what we needed. Plenty of space for the dogs, brilliant location and nice and peaceful too. Will definitely be back when it’s next possible, and will thoroughly recommend house to anybody else

This is the second time we have stayed at Maison St. Collette. I had a week on my own, pure joy, and was then joined by my son and his P.A. The property is spacious and ideal for my son, who is a full time wheelchair user, it allows him total independence both inside and outside the property. The new shower, with seat, is ideal as he has no real balance, and having a bath also is great for him to relax when he has muscle spasms. For me, the peace of this property is an ideal setting from the continual hubbub of London and hospitals. It has everything you need and more. Hesdin has some good restaurants, supermarkets, local bakeriers (the one opposite La Choppe is superb) and butchers. L’Allouette on the main road serves good food open Wed and Sun Lunch, and Friday and Saturday evening only. La Belle Epoque and La Garenne are also well worth a visit. The owner’s are extremely helpful and I would highly recommend this property. We will no doubt stay here again, just trying to work out my son’s timetable. Thank you so much Janet and Iain.

Our second visit to Maison Colette has confirmed the very positive impressions we had of our first one.

The house remained clean and comfortable with every desired convenience and even in mid-winter the surroundings were a pleasure to spend time in.

We can do little more than echo the many positive comments made by other people who have stayed here. In respect of its position and surroundings, its facilities and spaciousness both inside and outside, its comfort and cleanliness, it would be a hard act to follow.

In our experience of holiday homes in France, stretching back over many years, it would rank easily in the top three and, after any careful consideration, would most probably elbow its two nearest rivals out of the picture.

Our visit to this property could not have been better. From the moment we made the booking through Janet the owner, everything went like clockwork and was exactly as described in the details. On arrival we were faced with large gates that revealed an oasis in the French countryside and plenty of space for parking cars.

The farmhouse was spotless and met our requirements perfectly with a double en suite and 2 twins along with plenty of living space if the weather prevented us from being outside. One of the twins is up stairs and has a fantastic view of the local convent. The stairs are quite uneven so care was needed when using them. Having wifi in the property was a bonus.

In the kitchen there is every possible utensil/pot etc that you could ever want and having a dishwasher meant that the washing up was taken care of – once we worked out that the big plates have to be put in backwards! A washing machine in the main bathroom also came in handy.

The gardens are massive with barbeque areas at both the front and back of the house with enough seating for 6/8 and a’ping-pong’ table that saw many a heated competition! With fruit trees providing plenty of plums and a herb garden to use we were in our element. 

The property is excellent as a base for visiting the area and is only 30 minutes from the many beaches and golf courses around. There are many restaurants in the resorts which we tended to use before returning to the farmhouse. There is a bar/restaurant within walking distance in the village however we did not use it.

Overall, we had a fantastic holiday and would thoroughly recommend this property. It is less than an hour from Boulogne ferry port and provided a very good base for exploring northern France.
