and why wouldn't you when you receive such a warm welcome, stay in such a spacious, well-decorated and comfortable room and then enjoy such a convivial and tasty breakfast (it has been different each time but the delicious crepes are a regular feature). A la prochaine fois Monsieur!

Ideally placed for a stay before/after ferry/shuttle crossing but deserves a longer visit. Brilliant room for a family, great host and a delicious breakfast -highly recommended. A great nights sleep and a much more enjoyable alternative to a night in Calais

Hello Cara and thanks for your nice comment It's true we"re well situated for travelling over the channel by the shuttle or a ferry (only 20 minutes from Calais) It was really nice to meet you and your kind family even if it was too short Hope to see you in 2017 Nicolas

We have now stayed with Nicholas on 4 occasions. The welcome is always very warm and friendly and the rooms extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast is a delight and different from the norm with fresh pancakes or pain perdu which are both delicious. A great stop off close to the ferry or Eurotunnel. We will return soon. Thanks Nicholas.

and it was as good as the first time. Really enjoyed Nicolas' sense of humour (almost as much as his breakfasts) and the characterful, spacious, comfortable room. This time we were there in summer so able to appreciate the lake view (and the donkeys) from outside. There will no doubt be a third visit before too long...

We stayed at La Fermette du Lac prior to taking the Calais to Dover ferry the next morning. Nicolas gave us a warm welcome and was an excellent, accommodating and entertaining host, who wanted to speak English to us and enjoyed improving his voabulary. Our ensuite room was clean and comfortable. We were allowed to enjoy our picnic supper in...

Hello Wendy Nice to read that you appreciated everything during your stay Indeed, there are 13 restaurants close to our B&B and less than 2 kms drive. Eurolac is one of the good restaurants during the season, as Aux Marronniers or La Maison du chef or l'Authentique Hope to see you another time to try these ones Kind regards Nicolas

We stayed one night here and it was absolutely fantastic! The room for us and our two children was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was out of this world!

Ideal location for walks and bird watching in the area. Great view of the lake from garden. Excellent restaurants and shops in nearby Ardres - an interesting historic market town. Nicolas was a superb host, providing a great breakfast to start the day - delicious jams with inventive fruit combinations each day. Would certainly recommend a stay here for couples...

What makes this little B&B special is that, in an age of standardisation and conformity, it is truly original. Our room was in a converted barn with the bathroom downstairs from the bedroom. Everything was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room but you do have to remember that it is a barn conversion and is very reasonably priced...

This is a brilliant B&B. Nicolas is a wonderful host. The place is beautifully decorated and very clean, and the breakfast was delicious. We would most definitely stay here again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. If you are going out to eat while you're there try the restaurant authentique; it's amazing.
