It's a perfect amount to discover the surrounding forests and lovely little villages. The house is the perfect place to come back to after an active day, with the chimney and well equipped kitchen.

Downstairs is also the kitchen with dishwasher, combi-microwave, stove and fridge- lots of pans, dishes and utensils make it super practical!
The kitchen gives you access to the large backyard , which is a little further up the street, and you have a lovely view of rolling hills, stacks of firewood and the apple trees, from we make delicious apple juice.

Alains house is very nice and the garden is amazing! Everything was clean. The surrounding area is beautiful, very rural and French. Just make sure you have a car when you come to this wonderful area! Only the lack of WiFi in the house was a bit inconvenient sometimes.

We are a family of 6 who love to travel. The hosts are very kind and friendly. The area is beautiful and only 20 minutes away from the lovely Valjoly. We are sure to come back to this lovely little paradise.

It was sure difficult to leave the little village of Choisies and this precious house! Everything was super clean and tidy! The atmosphere of the house and the French country side couldn't be more lovely and cozy! Alain was great, thoughtful and gentle, he prepared in such a way that we felt really at home. Perfect for enjoying some peaceful time and beautiful nature :)

We were fortunate to find Alain's place. We were biking in the Avesnois region and we needed a hub from where to go around. Alain's gite was everything we needed. The experience started well from day one. We arrived around 6 pm after a day-long biking trip. Needless to say we were very tired, then found out that the only supermarket within reach was a 10 km long drive to Ferriere le Grand. Alain was a life saver when he drove us to that store, and even provided us with fresh organic produce from his garden: tomatoes, potatoes and green beans, all very good, which we ate in a beautiful garden which we had only to ourselves. Alain's place is a good place for anyone biking int he Avesnois, as it is very close (5 mins of biking downhill) from the voie verte which connects the north and south of the Avesnois, between Maubeuge and Liessies, with easy access to lake Val Joly. The gite has everything it needs, the bed is comfy and the garden is so cosy. This is a place to go back to anytime.

The house is set in a beautiful little village with scenic country roads and walking trails in many directions, all of which lead us to stunning forests, calming streams, delicious food and beer.... A great few days and we would loved to have stayed longer. Allain was a great host. He stayed up late to meet us when we had problems on our trip down, and still made us feel welcome upon arrival.
