My boyfriend and I have just bought a house near Amiens, in Boves (8 minutes from Amiens). This is a big house with three bedrooms. One private bedroom is available for you if you want to. We'd be more than welcome to have you in our home, share breakfast in the morning if we don't have to go to work and show you around. BREAKFAST is obviously INCLUDED in the price! The bedroom has a sofa and a queen size bed . If three of you are traveling, we may be able to find a bed somewhere and put you in the third bedroom but we haven't worked on it yet (just so you know). We live by the train station (less than 5 minutes) which goes to Paris in an hour from very early in the morning to late at night. The train also goes to Amiens in three minutes and Boulogne (beaches in Picardie, Baie de Somme). There is a lot to see in our area (we have the most beautiful cathedral ever and we have sites dedicated to the second world war if you're interested. we have the caves of Naours too and a lot more to discover, it's up to you :) you can take the bus to go to the city centre of amiens, it stops near our house!
If I'm around and you get there by train, I can pick you up at the train station since it's very close. There is a place to rent a car five minutes from our house and I can drive you there if you need. Our house is in a safe neighborhood where kids can play outside easily. We have a garden, a kitchen and a living room to share with you but we're not often home because we are very sporty and we have practices pretty much every night! There is the train which goes by our house but the trains stop at 11pm and to be honest with you, I can't really hear them anymore because I am used to it. It doesn't bother anyone in the neighborhood but in case it bothered you, (I can easily understand some people can be bothered by this noise) we'd be more than happy to give you earplugs to please you :)))))))))))))))))
Of course you can use the kitchen as needed, we want you to feel at home so feel free to help yourself with plates, knives, glasses and everything you need! But clean after yourself please as you would do at home. help yourself in the fridge or with coffee or tea if you're thirsty.
I can help you with your trips and give you advice too if you want and if I can help, specially about historical places! We love travelling and we love sharing stories :)
hope to see you soon! come and have a look, it will be worth it ;)
Marine and Ludo
Marine and Ludo were very welcoming and they have a lovely home. I had a very comfortable stay and my bike was cosy and warm in the garage
Marine and Ludo's house was comfortable and convenient. Marine and Ludo shared their experiences and travels - they were great company and lots of fun to stay with.
The reservation was canceled 88 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Marine and Ludo made us so welcome we felt as comfortable as if we were staying with our own family. We were made to feel at home with tea nad coffee available as we wamnted and a generous breakfast. We had some very interesting conversations with them together and individually. Their house is very conveniently located and proved a great base for us to explore the area. thank you very much for a great finale to our visit to France.
Marine and Ludo were fun, extremely welcoming, and accommodating. They really went out of their way to make us feel at home. We were welcome to use their kitchen. The bus to Amiens was conveniently located less than a five minute walk from their house. Marine was kind enough to give us a ride to the train station on her holiday.
My daughter and I stayed one night at Marine's house - it was a very brief visit but Marine and her partner made us very welcome. Their house is in a suburb just outside of Amiens but access is quite easy either by public transport or taxi. Marine very kindly drove us down to the local shops as we had arrived in the evening and hadn't eaten.
Their house is modern and the bedroom is a good size - plenty big enough for two people. There is a large living room downstairs and a back garden, which would be nice in the summer.
In the morning they gave us breakfast and again drove us to the car rental firm. Marine's partner even came in to help us in case the staff didn't speak English.
All in all it was a very pleasant experience and I wish we had more time to stay there.
After a very long journey and days shopping, we were warmly welcomed by Ludo and Marine. The house is beautiful and they are a lovely, chatty and honest couple. We slept very well, and had a very funny breakfast the next morning chatting with Ludo, who provided fantastic croissants and delicious chocolat chaud to prepare us for our onward journey! We'll be back next year! Thank you
We had a great stay at Marine's place.. Although we just stayed there for one night we really enjoyed it, had a nice talk with Marine when we arrived and left quite early again to stroll on the local rederie. Really nice place, clean and comfortable..just like in the photos! First experience on airbnb as a traveller and defenitely enjoyed it a lot. Thanks Marine and if you ever want to explore Holland instead of the USA you're always welcome to come and stay here!! Although make sure you visit Australia as well!! :)
Marine and Ludo were very welcoming and friendly, the room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Marine was extremely accommodating when we needed to book at short notice. Her English is excellent and you will have no trouble finding out whatever you need from her. Marine worries that he nearby train line will keep you awake, but we never noticed it. They also arranged a nice breakfast for us and gave us some snacks for the trip, which was verry generous of them. If you don't know much about the sport of handball, Ludo will be more than happy to explain he basics to you.
Very welcoming Home. We enjoyed every minute there.
Thanks again :-)
