Anyone visiting our Gite, must look out for the red squirrel. It lives in or near our bottom tree on the left in the back garden. We have named him Sammy, but he’s very shy. Would love to see your pictures of him/her . See if you can spot the Squirrel.
Today we visited the Brocante in Mouriez, can’t say it was the best one we’ve ever been to and, the parking was far to far away from the actual brocante. A little disappointed ☹️ as brocantes, unless they’re very big , just tend to be kids clothes and toys and market traders, which isn’t really the idea🤨
please be aware if you book now prices will remain the same as past 5 years. This year we have to raise them slightly, and this will be done in the next few weeks.

We have some weeks available due to unexpected circumstances doe not lose out on this little gem tucked away in the 7 valleys. Plenty of historic sites to visit including war cemeteries and gardens galore, Historic City of Arras about an hours drive, lovely place to visit, Paris about 2 hours away, and the beaches of Le Touqet, Berck and Merlimont about half hours drive.
Everyone visiting Northern France, especially when staying at Pres De La Foret a perfect place for touring the region, needs to visit Berck-sur-Mer between April 12th and 21st to visit the fantastic Kite Festival, along the sea front. Really a sight to see.
Arras is very often passed over for the larger more exotic cities. However, last time I was there I took trip to see the beautiful and majestic cathedral, and the a visit to, ( for the garden lovers) there is no better place than Les Jardins at Séricourt
