Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was fantastic, it has everything you need for a home from home. The pictures of the property does not do it justice. The garden is amazing and very private. I would highly recommend this property. Shame the weather wasnt too good. June 2012.
  2. The best part of the property was the garden area which was huge and given the right weather would be a good selling point for the property. Good for WW1 Battlefields and plenty of facilities with shops in the village and supermarkets in Albert especiallly and Bapaume. Sept 2011.
  3. This is an excellent Gite for those wishing to tour the Battle of the Somme. There is also the high speed train into Paris from Albert and it is a 90 minute journey into Ypres. A lovely village where all the locals are very welcoming. The accommodation is excellent for families with its enclosed garden, plenty of space in the Gite and the owners have kindly provided games and toys for your use. Aug 2011.
  4. This is a real find, the photos don’t do the gite any justice. Visits to the Somme on your doorstep, only an hour and a half to Paris and Disneyland. The place was perfect for us. Aug 2011.
  5. Away from the maddening crowd! July 2011.
  6. This cottage is fantastic as the location is central for lots of places. We will return next summer! July 2011.
  7. The house is spacious and very comfortable, the garden is exquisite. The location of Mailly Maillet is ideal for anyone wanting to explore the WW1 sites and is also ideally located mid-way between Amiens and Arras. We could recommend this property. June 2011.
  8. Perfectly located for WW1 battlefield sites - a lovely village with a boulangerie within 100m! Owners tried hard to help in every way and were pleasant. No uk tv channels so need to bring dvds etc. Great garden. June 2011.
  9. Old fashioned but very comfortable. Ideal place to stay if you are visiting the Somme battlefields. We shall go again. June 2011.
  10. We have visited this gite three times in 13 months - and we wouldn’t consider any other property when visiting this part of the Somme. Two of the three lovely gardens are wholly secure and dog-proof; once the massive wooden gates are fastened, you’re in another world. The village has a baker, butcher, chemist, cafe, bar and post office. It’s a few minutes drive along quiet roads from almost all the sites and memorials, yet Mailly-Maillet is a quiet, even rural village. It’s the perfect gite for dog-owners interested in the Great War, but it’s also pretty good for anyone wanting typically French accommodation in a beautiful part of France with plenty of places to visit and things to do. It’s a home from home and we love it. May 2011.
  11. We found the property excellent for our needs, as we booked because the location of the house was ideal for visiting the Somme area and surrounding locations. Oct 2010.
  12. Typically French - large old wooden furniture.Fabulous huge garden, completely enclosed so excellent for our dog. July 2010.
  13. We liked the garden and location. July 2010.
  14. Very quiet, magnificence garden, wonderful gite. June 2010.
  15. The perfect base for exploring the Somme, although in the end we rarely left the property because it was so comfortable. We spent most of the week reading, birdwatching in the garden and just enjoying the property. The dwelling is spacious and nicely furnished (proper furniture, not holiday pieces) and delightfully French in its sanitation. Although on the road, traffic (mainly farm tractors) was very light. Secure off-street parking behind the huge wooden gates, and 3 large garden areas, 2 were enclosed - excellent for our dog. The village had a baker, butcher, bar and chemist ... as well as a vet almost directly opposite. A short drive to Albert yielded all the usual shops of a small French town, as well as an interesting museum. Even shorter drives got one to several WWI sites. The small Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery in the village was kept beautifully. Don’t forget to bring waterproof footwear; the rain in June made some of the footpaths rather sticky. June 2010.
  16. Garden really big. Lots of locked rooms give a mysterious feel! Aug 2009.
  17. The property is comfortable and ideally located for visiting the historic WW1 battlefields. July 2009.
  18. If anything the description on your website under sold the property. There was no mention that the very large garden was walled and totally enclosed. Also we got sole use of not only that very large garden but also access to an equally large paddock behind making it ideal for people, such as us, who took a dog along. There were lots of extra’s e.g. jigsaws and masses of toys for young families who may not be as fortunate to have the wether we did and likewise books and videos (many in English). There was no mention that the village had its own bakery, delicatessan and bar in very easy walking distance. It was fantastic. June 2009.
  19. Lovely accommodation. April 2009.
  20. Fantastic garden. Very friendly/helpful owners, English-speaking.Every home comfort provided for. Aug 2008.
