Welcome to this delightfully serene 15th-century former chapel and presbytery, set in the friendly village of Wambercourt in the Nord Pas de Calais area.

The traditionally-styled house offers a typically Gallic atmosphere and lots of space for everybody to have their privacy. The walls of the house are over a metre thick, giving a rustic touch but they are also practical, providing cool in the hot summer months and welcome warmth during cold winters. The property has full gas central heating and insulated interior. Curl up in front of the large cheminee fireplace in the sitting room with one of the books from the house’s collection, also an ideal spot to get together for pre-dinner drinks. When it’s time for bed, you will find three bedrooms, including the master suite, in the main house, with the remaining four in the west wing.

The east wing of the house is home to the huge well-equipped kitchen, converted from the original stables. The perfect place to rustle up some new recipes, it also has a dining table where guests can come together to chat about the day. Mornings were made for the garden room and covered terrace where you need not do anything more strenuous than enjoy a coffee and newspaper before the day starts.

On warm summer days, head for the one acre informal garden for a glorious afternoon in the fresh air. Great for games and al fresco meals in one of four different dining areas. Sway in a hammock amongst mature trees or play a gentle game of boules.
