Just spent a fantastic week here, completely agree with previous review.
The caravan is situated next to an orchard in the corner of a large, quiet garden in the owners property. Riviere is a quiet village a few miles South of Arras, very well situated for visiting the Somme and Arras battlefields.
I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the caravan, so often pictures on websites can make things look bigger than reality. The description is a little lost in translation, it is more like a showmans caravan..the sort of thing you see towed behind traction engines.
Still very quaint and pretty but lots of headroom and width..much bigger inside than our large touring caravan.
We will definitely come back if visiting this area or need a stopover when touring.
We very much enjoyed our stay in the Gypsy Caravan at Riviere. My partner and I were researching places mentioned in her grandfathers diaries from WW1. Riviere was perfectly located for this and also the local attactions. Jean Claude was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome, thanks Jean Claude for your hospitality and warmth.

This is not a luxury, all provided holiday thank goodness.
It is a peaceful, getaway from it all, break in the countryside in an area full of history.
The caravan has all you could need including WIFI. It is the perfect size for two / three people with cooking facilities, shower, TV and DVD.
The neighbours are chickens, cattle and horse and although you are in the owner's garden, it is secluded and quiet. The owners were friendly and delivered fresh bread, eggs and yogurt for breakfast each morning.
You can't fail to smile as you walk down to the caravan as it looks so idyllic.
Location - about fifteen minutes drive from Arras, in beautiful countryside and within driving distance of the major World War sites. We found this area like a step back in time with empty roads and wide open spaces.
