Seaside holiday home near beach, golf course, and all amenities - free WiFi!

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Sep-2016
Last Minute August Price Reduction!

NOW WITH FREE WiFi! This comfortably furnished modern seaside house is the perfect base for an inexpensive family holiday. The small resort of Fort Mahon Plage is our favourite place on the Cote d’Opale. It’s a perfect holiday base for young families, with all kinds of amenities and amusements including the Aqua Park with slides and waves.

You and your children will love the beach, the mini-golf, horse and bicycle rides, and all the other activities available in and around this family oriented seaside resort, situated so conveniently just over an hour from Calais.

The famous Belle-Dune golf course, voted one of the ten best courses in France, is just a couple of hundred yards from Sandboys Dune, and the house is within easy walking distance of the beach as well as all the shops, cafes and good family-welcoming restaurants in the centre of town - yet it is tucked away in a quiet residential street where, even in the height of the summer season, traffic is minimal and there are no noisy crowds.

Visit the nearby Marquenterre bird sanctuary, or the Bay of the Somme to watch the seals, or take a steam train ride from Le Crotoy to the historic town of St Valery. Buy fresh fish direct from the fishermen in the market on the quay at Etaples, or enjoy a sightseeing day visiting the 1914-18 battlefields of the Somme (90 minute drive).

For cyclists and walkers there are many coastal and rural tracks which enable you to see the countryside away from the traffic.

Trains to Paris from the nearby station at Rue take less than 2 hours, or you can drive there by the autoroute in under 2 hours 30 minutes.

Patrick and Sue Hay own a number of holiday properties in the region, and have a reputation for their stylish modern design, with hardwood effect flooring, clean compact kitchens and original modern artworks. Furnishings here at Sandboys Dune are modern but very comfortable, and an efficient heating system makes the house cosy for out-of-season breaks.

Ground Floor: Open-plan lounge/diner with comfortable seating, 2 seater settee, satellite TV with UK TV and radio channels, DVD player, broadband internet access by WiFi, dining table and chairs. compact kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Bathroom with bath & shower facilities, separate WC.

First Floor: 2 twin bedrooms (with optional extra single bed in one of the rooms)

Exterior: Terrace with outdoor dining table, lockable storage/laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer, private parking space.

Fort Mahon is a family seaside resort, with fabulous beaches and endless dunes, on the famous Cote d'Opale, just over 1 hour from Calais. This well maintained modern house (built 2003), in a quiet development on the edge of the famous Belle Dune golf course, is extremely well equipped and superbly furnished in a contemporary style. Families with children, will love the beach, and all the other activities available in and around this family oriented seaside resort.

The beach with sand-yachting, windsurfing, kite-surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, kite-flying etc. is within walking distance, as is the Aquaclub pool with waves and slides. Also close by and within walking distance are an equestrian centre, mini-golf and other holiday recreation and sports facilities.

Walking and cycling routes varying from easy to physically demanding abound in the region.

Trout fishing is available at a number of nearby lakes, on a pay-by-the-day basis (No licence required).

This area is a golfer's heaven with some of Europe's finest courses open to visitors at very reasonable rates. The famous Belle-Dune course is almost literally on the doorstep. Just a few miles away is the friendly club at Nampont St. Martin where you will find two excellent 18 hole courses.

Modern, clean and well positioned.

  • 5 of 5

We had a good week, with very hot weather for the first few days. The gite was comfortable and had all we needed. The Dieppe Kite festival which we visit every two years was the main reason for a September holiday. It's an amazing spectacle and not to be missed.

All That We Needed........

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little holiday let perfectly suitable for us and our two teenage sons. Easy access to attractions and amenities in the town and a good base for exploring the region. Fantastic beaches and lovely towns all around, can thoroughly recommend a boat trip in St Valery Sur Somme. Teenagers had a great day at Belle Dune Aquaclub. Something for everybody.

Owners very friendly and was nice to meet Sue in person. House very very clean and only criticism would be a lack of kitchen utensils eg bread board and a serving dish or two.

Don't come here if you wish to mix with other Brits, I don't think we saw another GB registered car the entire week!

Great location with fab beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had a busy few days and visited a lot of the area. we liked Le Crotoy and went to Albert to visit the War Museum and surrounding war monuments.

you could do as much or as little as you wanted to.

Our gite was spotlessly clean and very well equipped inc. a hairdryer and a first aid kit. The small freezer compartment in the fridge was big enough to hold a few cooler blocks so we could bring back some goodies in our cool box. The local market is a must on Tuesday and Friday.

Patrick and Sue were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you we had relaxing few days

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the chance to stay at this wonderful home not far from the beach. It was a pleasure working with the Hay family, they provided everything we needed and were such a pleasure dealing with while booking. They also checked on us during the stay to ensure we were all set! Fort Mahon is a great spot for families, and we found this home was cozy and had everything we needed, and more. It was quiet, peaceful, and there are a few restaurants within just a short walk away. We were lucky to have found this one!

Had everything we needed

Well kept, tidy and immaculately clean holiday cottage. It was well positioned and had everything we could have wished for. Very easy to book, excellent directions, very smooth and easy. Great value and would stay here again.

excellent place, as usual

  • 5 of 5

We are renting regularly this house, as we are fond of speedsail, and Fort Mahon is a great spot for this.

The Hay are so kind: they always prepare the house, even if we give only short notice ( the wind does not let us much time to decide wether it is worth coming or not).

We love it and will come back, my sons and I!

Thanks again,

JF
