Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. One of the best relaxing holidays we have had, beautiful place and excellent base for visiting the Somme region. Would definitely revisit. June 2012.
  2. The caretaker lives in the restaurant L’Escale (closes 19:30). An excellent location for visiting WW1 Museums (incl. Albert - big free car park beside Hotel de Ville),Memorials & Cemeteries. At Arras get silver ticket to visit La Carriere Wellington (own car park), the Belfry & underground Boves, both at the Hotel de Ville in the Grand’ Place )parking there or in nearby Place de Heros. Visit Amiens Cathedral and take a boat trip on Les Hortillonages. Good golf courses at Golf D’Arras (at Anzin St. Aubin, NW of Arras) and Golf D’Amiens (7km ENE of Amiens near Querrieu). Take Le P’tit Train de la Haute Somme from nearby Froissy (train museum there). June 2012.
  3. Exceedingly quiet, no local transport,nowhere to buy basics at the weekend. Boulangerie and bar epicerie open during the week.Nearest supermarket 3km away in Bray sur Somme (very well stocked and has petrol station), reasonable prices. March 2012.
  4. It was clean and well appointed. Dec 2010.
  5. The gite was light and modern with a lovely view over the canal. It was well-equipped and comfortably furnished, and roomy. July 2009.
  6. This gite is a gem. Cappy is a beautiful village and the gite is right beside the Somme canal. We had great fun watching the boats go up and down and seeing the road bridge lift to let them through, an English narrow-boat even moored alongside for a couple of days whilst we were there. The gite is spacious, comfortable and was spotlessly clean upon our arrival. The owner was helpful but speaks no English (why should she!) but we managed well enough with our French. June 2009.
  7. The accommodation was of a very high standard. Furnished to a very high standard. June 2009.
  8. This gite is a real gem and we highly recommend it. It’s spacious and comfortable with wonderful views over the canal. We had a great time. June 2009.
  9. The accommodation was excellent and very well placed for the battlefields of the Somme, excellent walking. April 2009.
  10. Excellent accommodation sited in the wonderful village of Cappy, good fishing and very friendly locals make the stay even more memorable. April 2009.
  11. Very well equipped. Aug 2009.
  12. The pictures do not do this justice. Very pretty setting in a village with 4 restaurants / bars and bakers (when open!). Walking distance to the Petit Train De La Somme. Sept 2007.
