Located on the superb site Le Cap Blanc Nez which is considered as the jewel of the seaside area Côte d’Opale, La Grand’Maison is a beautiful old typical family-run farm from the region Nord-Pas-de-Calais (dated from 1633, renovated on the XIXth century) with a lovely dovecote in its centre. Big property planted with trees and flowers, nearby its countries, heaths and meadows and located a bit off the beaten tracks of the village of Escalles. Private car park. You will enjoy countryside close to the sea!
Holiday cottages for 4 to 10 people with every modern convenience. Gardens and playing area with climbing frames for children. Former outbuildings with their original beams have been converted to studios and 5 guest rooms.
Lovers of pleasant walks along the coast or across the fields (there are many national hiking trails in the vicinity of the cottage) will enjoy their stay. Magnificent landscapes on the both sites Cap Blanc Nez and Cap Gris Nez and a bird’s eye view on the region and the straits of Dover towards England (only 22 miles). You are going to enjoy the peacefulness and the little joys of the landscape environment in company with familiar animals.
