Château de Moulin le Comte

  We are delighted to be able to offer travelers a fine château in the Pas-de-Calais region of northern France, convenient to the ferry ports of Calais and Dunkerque as well as the Eurostar from London to Lille.  This fine nineteenth century mansion, constructed in 1850, was renovated only recently in 2012. The new owners were especially careful to preserve the style and character of the building which is much appreciated by its guests.

All five guest rooms are en suite with shower rooms and a separated WC, and four of the five are on the first floor up a lovely winding stairway.  One guest room is on the ground floor.  The bathrooms are equipped with hair dryers, fine towels, bathrobes and quality bath products.  Bedrooms are superbly comfortable and all the beds have new top quality Sealy mattresses.  Each has a flat screen television as well as coffee and tea making facilities. 

Dinner is available every evening for guests of the château, but your hosts do require a 48-hour advance reservation.  The dinner meal consists of five courses: an appetizer, starter, sorbet, main course and dessert.  Apéritifs are available between 7:30 and 8:00 PM, either in the lounge or on the lovely terrasse, with dinner served at 8.  Guests are seated at separate tables.  Your hosts are proud to serve fresh, local products at their table and will be happy to cater to anyone with food allergies or special diets as long as they are made aware of these when booking your stay.

Of course, breakfast at the château is an equally important meal.  Start your day with a wide variety of breads and French pastries, yogurt, fruit, hard cooked eggs, cereal, juice and coffee or tea.  Taken in a sunny room, this will ensure a good start to your day visiting the Pas-de-Calais.  There is much to see and do here including the towns of St Omer, Lens where the new Louvre museum is located, Arras and the amazing city of Lille with its stunning and elegant architecture and a wide choice of museums, churches, monuments and fortifications to visit.

For those who prefer quieter pastimes, biking through the gentle countryside is something well worth considering, and a stroll through the village of Aire-sur-la-Lys should not be missed.  This commune dates back to 857 when the Count of Flanders, Baldwin II, built it around a fortification to ward off invading Normans.  It was even ruled by both Burgundians and the Spanish until it officially became part of France in the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. 

Do consider this warm and inviting château for your accommodations when you are next in the region of Calais.  Your friendly hosts are eager to welcome you and share their home and table with you.
