About Geraldine Waring

We are two school friends from London, now retired, who decided to join forces in 2003 to buy our apartment off plan because we loved the area. In 2006 it was completed and we've enjoyed some wonderful times, especially the warmth of off season while the UK is still a bit chilly! When the apartment was complete Joanna was working in London as an interior designer so it has been decorated to a high standard and artistically arranged which we are always adding to with locally bought things giving the authentic Spanish feel.

It has been a very successful venture as we, friends and families have enjoyed our stays in Costalita a great deal, getting to know the Costa del Sol and wonderful Andalucia further afield. And most of all enjoying the sunshine.

The French House is owned by Geraldine

Notes on accommodation: The website I have listed is for my apartment in Spain. You are welcome to ask me for more information or photos on the French one. This is a rustic wonderful family house in the French Countryside so expect spiders, the odd cobweb, wonderful smell of wood burning stove and open fire place. The garden (2 acres) is so enjoyable and I recommend on good evenings to put the kitchen table outside and cook from the house or bar b q. Ideal for 2 or 3 families to share, parties as neighbours are not close enough to be disturbed. Really safe for children and lots to do in the garden, trampoline, badminton, table tennis, and games lawn for football, a wooded area to build dens. Garden gates can be shut so it is private and enclosed. Great cycling area and ideal for walks and runs. I have had fitness weeks and triathlon groups staying at the house. We have a cupboard of games along the lines of scrabble, trivial pursuits, cludo, monopoly. Outside: 2 bricked patios which flow onto the lawn. One is directly from the kitchen and other outside the bar b q area. Garden table with umbrella, 4 chairs with cushion seats, wooden garden table and 4 chairs, various deck chairs and other garden chairs. Bar b q area. Large trampoline, badminton net, cricket/football lawn, wood area, lawn and lots of lovely trees, plenty of place to sit alone and read or enjoy a glass of wine. Utility Room: Washing machine is in the kitchen area, I have a spin dryer in garage and washing line for clothes as so nice to hang out in the sun. Cupboard, with mobs, brooms, buckets etc, iron and ironing board, Henry Hoover. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bed linen is provided and there are duvets on all beds.

Fantastic family christmas

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely, with a good amount of space for 14 family members, quiet spaces and fun filled rooms. The open fires were wonderful, especially for a wet and cold Christmas and once we had decorated with Christmas trees, table decorations and stockings it was truly lovely. There were enough beds for all, although the 'girls room' was a little loud and full of laughter with 3 teenage/20 something occupants!

We did make it to Le Torquet boxing day where we were rained off the beach after a brusque stroll but the restaurant nearby made up for it with hot chocolates! so much so that we returned the next day for a delicious lunch of 'Moules et Frites' We all had such a great time we are even talking about re-doing it all again in the summer! Our sincere thanks to Geraldine for such a great stay.

Great family property

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for us, five adults and five children, ranging in age from 7 to 70's. The house is very roomy and comfortable and well equipped to cater for that number of guests, and we never felt the need to go too far afield as there is so much to do at the house and in the garden. We did make several trips to the beautiful sandy beach at Merlimont (about half an hours drive away through very pretty countryside) which was great. We also enjoyed a trip to the chocolate factory in Beussent.

The well stocked supermarket is conveniently situated about 15 minutes drive away. All agreed it is a great place for a family holiday which suits all ages.

Fantastic French Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay in Wicquinhem again! This is our second stay here and once again we loved it. Large and spacious to fit all of us in, lovely roaring fire, large kitchen area and outdoor area, the kids enjoyed the extensive garden and trampoline - it proved perfect for the Easter Egg hunt! We were made very welcome again.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 5 days over Christmas and had an amazing time. The house is ideal for a family holiday with plenty of space. The kitchen is very well equipped and the oven is huge. There is plenty of seating in the lounge with big comfy sofas and an open fire. The garden is a great space and the house is in a rural location but only half an hour from Le Touquet which has a lovely beach. The bedrooms are all a good size and one has a pool table which was a welcome addition. Overall the house is rustic and very welcoming, as was the owner. Would thoroughly recommend.
