Jasmine and Mike
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Chez Jasmine. You were so welcoming to us and we loved the aperitifs at your house.
We visited many places including St Cecile, Bagatelle, Dennlys Parc, Azincourt and many more. We also saw the fireworks at Bagatelle, upon your advice, which were excellent.
However the highlight of our holiday has been visiting Montcavrel market / village party on the two Friday nights we were here. The French atmosphere was great, the wine and beer were lovely and the food was good too Joshua particularly enjoyed the music especially when he got to play the drums.
The cottage was ideal for our family and Joshua loved the playroom.

Thanks again.

Jasmine and Mike

Such lovely hospitality, thank you for a lovely evening and introducing us to such a wonderful area.
Cycling has been a highlight and we are grateful for the loan of the bikes.
On the while the weather has been good, Berck beach and Le Touquet were great, lovely Friday market too.
Etaples has been a firm favorite and also the citadel at Montreuil.
Super time had by all, it’s a shame to be leaving and hope to be back again.

Many thanks for a fabulous second stage to our holiday.
The gite provided much needed relaxation following a hectic few days at Disney.
Jasmine, your knowledge of the area and days out ensured that we were able to make the most of our time here. We particularly enjoyed Agincourt and Nausicca although St Cecile proved to be the best suggestion since the beach was perfect for us (complete with free parking)

The children loved the both playroom and the garden (so well equipped they were never bored), which meant that we had time to relax.
The Friday evening market was great – it was lovely to see such a thriving village in action.

Thank you for your hospitality; you made us feel truly welcome.

Note from Marie: 
Sadly, these are now the last reviews from those lucky families who have had the chance to sample the special brand of hospitality offered by Jas & Mike as the gite has just been sold.  I am sure that all of you who have enjoyed staying at Chez Jasmine in the past will join with me in wishing them well in their new home in East Anglia.

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. Although the weather has not been great we have had a fantastic time visiting Montreuil, Boulogne and Le Touquet. The playroom has been invaluable at keeping us all entertained, particularly acting out 'The Tiger who came to tea'! Thanks too for the apperos ! Stewie (resident house pet rabbit) is gorgeous and so is your home.

Merci beaucoup !

A la prochaine !

Merci Jasmine for your warm welcome and your helpful advice. We have had a very enjoyable week before next week at Euro Disney.

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and helpful service.  It was lovely to meet you and Stewie, too!  We had a lovely day at the beach at St Cecile.  Le Touquet was very windy but we still managed to build the biggest sandcastle on the beach!  Ruby has drawn you a picture of it.

The Bagdales  Jubilee Week 2/06/12  Les Cottages de la Mer
Had a splendid week in La Crotoy and the house was perfect for us, we particularly enjoyed using the excellent bikes although the 
rain and wind prevented us from cycling as much as we would have liked.  Can also highly recommend the guided walk across the Bay 
- a fascinating 3 hr insight into ecology, life and landscape of the estuary.  We look forward to meeting you again on our next visit!

The Dobbs  21/8/09   Chez Jasmine
Jasmine, thanks so much for such a wonderful but too brief stay in Montcavrel.  Each of your insights of where to 
eat, shop and beach were pearls.

 week was longer.

I would like to thank you for making Christmas at La Bouquetterie special.  The snow was an added bonus, we achieved a lot of 
sledging much to the kids delight.  Thanks again.


E. Mueller - 5/06 La Bouquetterie

Marie, many thanks for your efforts.  We had a wonderful time and everyone thought it (Bouquetterie) was just perfect.  The 
weekend went like clockwork and everyone has a fabulous time.

M.Roche - 4/06  L Bouquetterie

Many thanks for the excellent accommodation. The house (Bouquetterie) is lovely, and in a super location.  It was also a pleasure to
 meet (the owner) and be able to speak face to face.

P.Morgan - 3/06  La B

An excellent weekend at Bouquetterie.  The house is awesome as the photos suggest and a great venue for a large party and made a 
huge success of Lucy's 40th.  Claudette's many finishing touches give it a personal, comfortable feel and her wonderful meal of roast
wild boar delicious!

T. Jiggins – 9/05  

We enjoyed staying at Bouquetterie. It was perfect for both our families and the owners were both friendly and accommodating. We 
went to eat at one of your recommended restaurant, La Grenouille, and had one of the best meals that we have had anywhere and we eat 
in a lot of places.
