Close to Montreuil sur Mer and Le Touquet.snd three other fine sandy beaches. Also there are 5 great golf courses within a short drive. One can get to Paris by train quite reasonably quickly.

Fantastic accommodation for a large group

  • 5 of 5

As a group of seven (oldish) blokes on our first cross-channel motorbiking weekend, we found it really hard to find suitable accommodation with the appropriate availability of beds - until we found this which has real character. Peter the owner was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome - thank you! There is a good mix of spacious double and twin rooms and a family room which meant only two of us had to share a room and there are enough toilets, showers and baths to cope with us all wanting to freshen up after a days riding in the hot sunshine. The kitchen was well equipped, but as we had great weather, we only cooked one meal over the three evenings we were there and the supplied barbecue got well used instead. There was certainly enough room for people to relax without feeling cramped (even if the weather means you can't go outside) and the table tennis and pool tables got a lot of use. There are also swings for younger children and room for them to run around safely. There is a good mix of seating areas so it is easy to find somewhere quiet or to be in a big group depending on what suits. The property is only a short ride away from a large supermarket so getting provisions was easy. The village of Sorrus itself is very quiet (no shops, bars or restaurants) but it is surrounded by fantastic riding roads and is well sited for visiting local tourist / historic sites / beaches such as Valery sur Somme, the Somme battlefield memorials and Le Touquet with the added bonus of enjoying the journey getting there. Unfortunately, we only went through Montreuil (the nearest town) on the last evening, but it looked really charming with some good restaurants etc. and is a good excuse for us to come back again.

We would highly recommend this property as a great base for a couple of families holidaying together or a group of friends such as us on a biking trip and it was very cost effective - for the seven of us, the cost per person for three nights was less than one night in a hotel. Overall a fantastic experience and we are already planning a return visit.

Great place to stay for Opal Coast and Montreuil

  • 5 of 5

Our French conversation group, numbering ten, enjoyed a great three night stay at this property. There was ample space, both in the bedrooms and the lounge and dining rooms for us to gather and chat. Its in a great position for visiting Le Touquet, the rest of the Opal Coast and the historic town of Montreuil. The village of Sorrus is pleasant and very quiet. The house was generally well maintained and equipped although a few items of crockery were chipped. The owner, Peter, was very welcoming and helpful

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of friends and family in France for a short break to practise our French skills. This lovely property provided us with good accommodation and a convenient base for trips out to Le Touquet and Montreuil sur Mer The village of Sorrus is beautiful and very quiet, although supermarket and other facilities are no more than 5-10 mins away. The property is well situated and the owner, Peter, is most helpful and friendly

Just the ticket

  • 5 of 5

This was a family gathering to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of Loos 1915 and in particular the passing of Pte Edwin Salt Hill, 2 Welsh Fusiliers, on 25 Sep, the opening day. Those present were Grandpa and Grandma (Edwin's grand daughter) from the UK together with their son James (Edwin's great grandson) with his wife Sarah, and their boys Henry and Joe (Edwin's great great grandsons) from Australia. We chose the right place. One hour or so west of the battlefield and only 30 minutes from the beach at le Touquet, Sorrus offered an ideal home for us all to relax, revive and remuster for a very active week. The joining instructions were comprehensive and accurate. The property was in immaculate condition and just as described on the website. We were especially pleased to find the bedrooms we preferred already made up, despite the owner, Peter, being away for a couple of days. The central kitchen was well equipped, with a table large enough to seat all six of us for every meal. We never used the dining room at one end of the house, except for the pool table which kept the grandsons happily occupied for hours. At the other end of the house, the Sky TV lounge was much appreciated for the rugby World Cup coverage and, above, the mezzanine library provided a quiet haven. The bedrooms and bathrooms on the top floor were neatly separated by a couple of doors providing the grandparents with welcome seclusion in the west wing. Outdoors, the surprises continued with a garage full of classic cars, two lovely kittens and eight perfect chickens, who kept Grandpa occupied all week. What is more, there was a great football playing grass area to one side of the house which kept the peace all round. In between enjoying the house and its surroundings, we found good supermarkets in and around Montreuil, cafes for that wind down beer in the market square and, on Saturday, a pretty good market there too. We enjoyed visits to 'Paris on Sea 'at le Touquet, its beaches, shops and bars, very elegant and free parking during the week. But we were there for a purpose and while we also visited Agincourt (1415), Vimy (1917) and the V2s at Wizernes (1945), all an easy hour or so drive away, on Friday 25 Sep we reported, with many others, to Dud Corner Memorial at Loos for the centenary. A moving day with much learnt and remembered. Then back to the peace and tranquillity of Sorrus and Peter's lovely home. Well done Peter and Owners Direct - six very satisfied customers.

Great Party Place.

  • 5 of 5

We were eight women in total, all great friends, who came to stay at this wonderful farmhouse to celebrate my 60th birthday. What a ball we had. It certainly is a great place to party. There were "wows" from everyone as we investigated the house.

Loads of bedrooms so no one had to share beds. The large spacious dining room was perfect and the living room with its vaulted ceiling was a great place to chill. The mezzanine was the best place to dance till the early hours, even if we were mostly of retirement age. All of us appreciated the lovely art work everywhere, the chickens roaming in the lovely garden and the peaceful village.

We went to a large Brocante market in nearby St. Josse, suggested by Peter and bought lots of bargains. Nearby beaches ( Merlimont and Berck ) were beautiful and mostly empty. Amiens was a good day trip, to visit the biggest cathedral in France.

On the last night we went to Froggies restaurant in nearby Montreuil, where the food was really good and the staff really helpfull and friendly.

Everyone had the most memorable time, in this lovely house which the pictures on the web site do not do it justice and we would certainly recommend it to friends. Thanks.

Perfect for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this for a weekend in March. Despite the weather still being unusually cold, the house was very warm and cosy. Peter the owner was extremely welcoming and helpful. The house is lovely, better than the photos, and very well equipped with everything you might need for a large group. Upstairs is enormous! with plenty of space for everyone to feel relaxed, and plenty of loos and baths/showers to avoid any queues! We had an excellent trip to the new Louvre gallery in Lens, which was well worth the visit for the extraordinary building as well as the exhibits! (it's also free entry for 2013!) We will be back!
