“Book early to avoid disappointment!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Like the last poster, I'm a returning visitor to Bienvenue. The guest book is full of comments saying that this is the best holiday home people have ever stayed in - and rightly so. Last year I decided to book after reading a review that said if you're thinking about it just do it but now it's so popular (with many returning visitors) it speaks for itself.

What do you get? Amazing views (I shall bore my friends with my photos of the sunrise and France by night); a beautifully furnished, well equipped, high-spec place to stay and a professional, friendly customer service approach. The owers of Bienvenue really know what they are doing and it makes everything so easy and enjoyable.

“Becoming home on the south coast”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were back for our second visit this year. The weather was entirely different to the blistering sunshine of 2014 so we had wet days and thunder storms as well as glorious sunshine to contend with.

The apartment is on the cliff edge overlooking the channel and the coast of France is regularly in view. We happily watched the weather move across the bay when it was too wet to be out walking on the cliffs which you can do right from the garden gate onto the cliff.

The apartment has had a freezer added under the stairs since we were here last year which delighted us as we could buy a bag of ice to add to drinks we consumed sitting on the terrace of an evening before walking into town for dinner. It is a real sun trap. It also kept us from having to eat stale bread after we bought a giant loaf at Tescos in Dover.

The apartment itself is clean and comfortable. Lots of space to relax on a wetter day and read a book. There is plenty of crockery and cutlery and all the cookware basics you need for breakfast and lunch. The wifi is really good and supported Netflix. The property doesn't have a smart TV but we plugged in our laptop with a VGA cable (not supplied) and the phono leads (in the drawer) and that worked perfectly.

Good toiletries and kitchen basics supplied. The welcome basket is always appreciated and thoroughly emptied by the end of the week.

We had a wonderful fortnight in the flat, it couldn't be any better. We enjoyed the outstanding views, the walks from right behind the house and the flat itself. It is also a great spot to explore Kent, even a day trip to London is possible from the nearby trainstation (2 hrs one way).

“Wonderful Place - Outstanding Views!”

Bienvenue was a wonderful accommodation for my significant other and teenage daughter. It was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and well equipped with everything we needed. The views are absolutely the best! It was wonderful to be able to walk out our door and be on a walking trail. It was very peaceful and quiet spot. It was a little difficult to get phone service sometimes, but the WiFi had no problems.
