What people are saying about Hauts-de-France

Public transport links are excellent, I was able to get to Ploegsteert using the pass. Many of the museums are not in Lille but surrounding areas so factor journey time in. Really easy to use and collect, don’t forget to activate it for both museums and public transport.

Not only the castle left an impression, but the whole region and the village. Comfortable and clean. I wonder how it is in winter around Christmas. Our final destination was Reims (300km), but we circled here mostly with another 100km. It was a successful stopover.

The tour gives you a good impression about the town and his history. Not to long, not to short. Overall conclusion: excellent.

Lovely chateau with wonderful stables and horses. Definitely worth seeing and not overly crowded.

Awesome experience!!! Our guide Frank was wonderful. Many thanks again to him!
