Welcome in le Vieux Carré

In our more than 200 years old farmhouse with courtyard transformed into a nice, warm bed and breakfast.
With lots of patience and devotion Martin (building) and Ingrid (decoration) changed their ancient farmhouse into a luxurious and comfortable B&B.
Our village, Escalles, is situated in one of the 10 Grand Sites de France, the most beautiful spots of France, with the highest degree of protection. On a clear day you see, across the English Channel, the White Cliffs of Dover. Our own Cap Blanc Nez – 134 metres high- and Cap Gris Nez are no less beautiful.


Escalles is an “Asterix and Obelisk” village at the foot of Cap Blanc Nez, has about 300 inhabitants and 3 restaurants, all within walking distance. The beach is an 800 metres walk.
Our farm, in a square form, is as original as possible on the outside and built with local materials like flint and chalk. The only “luxury” we have permitted ourselves is our spacious conservatory, which also serves as breakfast-room. It is placed in a big pond, with lots of fish, frogs, toads and newts and looks out on our garden, where many quiet corners are created where you can retire with a book or enjoy the sun.


Ingrid has decorated the interior of the house with much taste.
All rooms are spacious and well equipped: double beds (2 x 90 – 200) with comfortable mattresses, flat screen TV with satellite, Wifi and DVD player. You’ll also find Coffee and Tea making Facilities.


The en-suite bathrooms have “walk in” showers, toilet, dressing table and hairdryer.
The breakfast buffet is extensive with a variety of breads, croissants, eggs, fruit juices, cereals, cheese and meat board, fruit and of course coffee, tea and milk.
Our spacious living room is at your disposal, as is the library.


Culturally, culinary and recreationally our region has a lot going for it. Calais and Boulogne are nearby if you want lively towns with all sorts of amenities. Wissant is a popular holiday resort for surfers.


If peace and quiet is what you are looking for, just go a couple of miles inland and you will find plenty well-marked walks and cycle routes. Also by car you find many interesting drives to explore the region and nice spots for a picnics or BBQ’s.
Hope to see you soon.
