Wonderful gite newly refurbished with a stylish mix of modern design and preservation of the history of the building. The accommodation is a three storey town house with loads of character including exposed beams and original stonework features. The main living area combines brand new kitchen (complete with all the appliances and cooking utensils you need), breakfast bar, dining area, lounge and study area. Upstairs on the top floor are two bedrooms with exposed beams and very comfortable beds, and a luxurious bathroom complete with walk in shower. There are interesting views from every window in the gite.
The location is first rate in the heart of the fortified city within 30 seconds walk of the Basilica (as shown in attached photo), and minutes from the central square and shops / restaurants. Our two children (7 & 4) loved the gite, and while we were there they enjoyed visiting the aquarium (Nausicca - also a 5 star experience), a walk around the city walls, the castle museum and the Basilica. Nausicca is 25 minutes walk from the gite, the other are all less than 5 minutes. You can park outside the gite to unload, and the free public parking within the city walls is only 1 minute walk away. We had no trouble finding a space and no concerns about security (despite car being full with a roofbox on top).
Thank you for a wonderful stay. I simply cannot recommend this accommodation enough - if you are visiting Boulogne you must stay here!
