Overview

Photos and Description of this Miannay holiday house

In all seasons, comfortable family holidays for 8

The Thiebault farmhouse is a former hayloft. Philippe and Marie-Corinne Lion, the owners, have guarded the spirit of this typical Picardie setting. This wooden, cob, and brick building has been tastefully renovated, the entire wooden roof frame dismantled and repaired, as well as the entire farmhouse rebuilt to exacting, modern insulation standards. The environment is a primary concern of ours. Geothermal heating allows you to enjoy a high level of comfort, making up for even the coldest outdoor temperatures. There is also a solar-heated boiler. We carefully picked the decoration. The chimney's design allows it to elevate heat to the roof. As we have a light, steel and oak staircase, you can enjoy double orientation. The house succeeds in what is perhaps most difficult. It manages to combine modern features with the charm of the old Picard houses that exhibit time-worn beams.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • long term rentals available
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Philippe and Marie-Corinne Lion

The husband retired after from L'Oreal 20 years ago. He now works as a business coach.

The wife works at a dental clinic in the greater Paris area.

Philippe and Marie-Corinne Lion purchased this house in 2009

Why Philippe and Marie-Corinne Lion chose Somme

The farm belonged to my great grandparents. For me, it holds many childhood memories in the small village of Miannay, with the fully refurbished 16th-century manor in a lush, green setting adorned with remarkable flowers. Make sure to ask for my favourite routes. This calm landscape offers wonderful hikes starting out from Thiebault farmhouse towards Zoteux. The trail winds amidst the woods and along meadows for two to three hours. You can then have breakfast or dinner at Cheval Noir, a lovely inn in a small locality called "little Miannay", that is 4.5 km from Miannay. Along the Somme riverbanks, you can take bike rides to Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme and then enjoy the bay's outstanding bicycle paths. I am very fond of the region because of its harmonious art of living close to soothing nature. Far away from the coastal resorts, on the beaches, you can set down your towel and play sport and the bay truly rejuvenates both my body and soul. I find that the hectic rhythm and the never-ending stress of the greater Paris area melt away, forgotten, on the long walking trails two hours outside the city. Here, you can drive with peace of mind. Somme Bay puts my body and soul at ease even if the weather does not hold up, we can loan a waterproof and boots at any time of the year. The bay comes to life in every season, each in its own way. A change of scenery is guaranteed.

What makes this house unique

At the entrance to Somme Bay

Paris is 200 km away on the A 16. We are half way between Dieppe, Le Trepot, and Le Touquet.

Eastwards the bay extends to Cayeax, while to the west it reaches Saint-Quentine. Crecy forest limits the bay the south. Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme and Crotoy lie at its heart. This remains one of the wildest places in France being an important post for migratory birds and a peaceful haven for seals. The beauty here is in the landscapes and the glorious light. A sought after destination for nature lovers, the entire coastline has long been an unspoilt area. Depending on your likes, you can hike, go horse riding on the beach (Henneson, a typical breed in the region), go biking; the whole bay is accessible with bike trails. There are guided walks, visits to Marquenterre Park where you can see rare birds, not to mention the many events such as the St-Riquier music festival, Transbaie (interactive information site in the region), the tourist steam train, and more besides.

The rental is nestled in the small village of Miannay with its 16th-century manor. You can enjoy the woodland scene at the property, the sunny terrace, and a canopy with garden furniture.

Feel free to play the piano, to use the wood-burning fireplace with firewood included. The rental offers an "all-inclusive" deal: sheets, towels and final cleaning all complimentary. Other amenities include:

— A satellite TV with international channels

— A stereo system and Bluetooth

— Wi-Fi

— A piano

— A fully equipped kitchen,

— A washing machine and tumble dryer

— An outdoor barbecue

Built around a designer fireplace in a loft style, you can enjoy the tasteful decor and the antique furniture. This provides a combination of modernity and tradition.

There are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms 2 WC

Beautiful relaxing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Holiday home, thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and furnished. As a family of six, including two children, this house had all the space we needed, all mod cons and home comforts. Set in a beautiful area with great options in all directions to explore. The house was clean and tidy and with all bed linen and towels provided it made it very easy to just settle in. Owner was very helpful and gave us a tour of the house on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks Phillipe we had a great time!

Exçellent week end prolongé en famille dans un gîte de grande qualité

  • 4 of 5

Miannay un joli petit village à quelques kilomètres de la mer. Un très beau gîte avec des prestations de très belles qualités - c'est comme à la maison, les propriétaires ont tout prévu y/c les ingrédients nécessaires à la cuisine. Le lieu est très calme et la vue depuis le salon et les chambres est dégagée. En clair nous conseillons ce lieu et sommes prêt à y retourner. Merci également pour l'accueil

Parfait

  • 5 of 5

Long WE dans cette superbe bâtisse refaire entièrement à neuf.

L'accueil était très agréable et la maison, tout confort, est refaite avec beaucoup de goût.

Nous avons apprécié l'espace de vie, les 3 salles d'eau dont une avec jacuzzi, l'espace extérieur avec le barbecue et le parasol chauffant.

Excellente adresse, nous reviendrons sûrement.

gite très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Gite très bien situé pour découvrir la région...

Grand, propre et fonctionnel, les enfants peuvent profiter de l'extérieur quelque soit leur âge puisque le jardin est clos...

La literie est de qualité, ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas dans les locations... (en revanche, l'isolation intérieure est quasi inexistante, donc on entend d'une pièce à l'autre...)

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour... à refaire!

Excellente

  • 5 of 5

Maison très accueillante et très bien équipée. De plus il est agréable de ne pas avoir à se soucier du linge, les lits sont faits à l'arrivée. Je recommanderais cette location à des amis. Nous connaissions déjà la Baie de Somme, et n'avons pas donc pas revisité, c'était surtout pour nous l'occasion de passer un week-end entre amis, ce qui n'exclut pas un petit tour à St Valéry et au Crottoy.
