We went with twenty friends to celebrate a 60th birthday. The chateau is a wonderful place for such an occasion… All the guests raved about the place and I expect to try to find another occasion to celebrate so that we can return!

Incredible chateau! We enjoyed our stay very much and the chateau allowed a large group of people to stay comfortably. Photos do no justice to the beautiful home… Thank you Amanda for your prompt responses to the many questions I had!


I had an amazing time staying in this beautiful house. It is the ideal place for a family and friends reunion. The hosts were very welcoming and recommend the most amazing chefs. I was blown away by the place and would strongly recommend it to anyone.


Spent a lovely weekend in the Big Chateau in early March. The chateau has been meticulously restored and the rooms have all been tastefully decorated. Can't recommend it highly enough for a retreat in France that's so close to London. Will definitely go back again.

Absolutely wonderful, I can't praise it enough. We went for my 60th birthday, a marvellous surprise party with family and friends including several children. It was a brilliant week, we couldn't have been happier. It is reasonably priced given the number it sleeps.


We rented Chateau d'Hallines for a birthday weekend for my husband. I looked at so many Chateaux to find the perfect place for 24 friends and Chateau d'Hallines just stood out as a special place and we were not disappointed… We all said we would love to come back again.

All mod-cons are provided but the chateau retains its character. A fantastic weekend in a wonderfully luxurious, friendly place. I hope to visit again!


This was probably the nicest place I have ever stayed at. Everything you need is there, a truly magical place to stay and ample parking for our 17 motorcycles. We will be back.

I'm highly recommending for anyone who would like to experience staying in a tastefully decorated place, hosting a big group of people. Thank you Amanda, we will certainly come again.

Spending the weekend at the Chateau with my friends was absolutely perfect! The hosts were lovely and accommodating, each room was beautifully, uniquely decorated. You can tell how much love and thought has gone into making this the perfect venue. Would highly recommend!

We rented the chateau for a weekend getaway with colleagues. Everyone loved it. The chateau has been renovated very beautifully and every room has its own wonderful details. The stables provided the perfect location for a nice barbecue evening.

A beautiful, tranquil location for a family get together.

I really enjoyed my stay here at the Big Chateau. Great cycling routes nearby to get stuck into. Rooms are very comfortable and we had plenty of space.

We had a really nice stay at the Big Château for my sister's wedding. It is a wonderful place. I will recommended it to everybody who is searching for a magical stay in the North of France!

What an ideal spot for an art retreat! Big Chateau enabled us to drive to our destination, being only 30 minutes from Calais, and have enough space to feel safe. Amanda and Dan couldn't have been more welcoming… I'm happy to say we have rebooked for next year!

Had a wonderful week! Great location from Euro tunnel and easy to find. The chateau is great and amazing to explore. Very big so excellent for a large group. Our room was lovely. The colours are all gorgeous though! The huge, modern kitchen is fab with everything you need.

We stayed here for a week's art retreat (run by art teacher Jo Alam at Cup of JoJo) and the space worked perfectly for us. The covered stable area gave us a bright comfortable area to be creative and the Chateau and grounds gave perfect inspiration for some wonderful art!
