Welcoming bike and car enthusiasts Les Ballastières is a 200-year old farmhouse, situated in the Pas de Calais in the small village of Gauchin Verloingt, just outside St. Pol-sur-Ternoise. The English owners, Paul Thomas and Sue Fairbairn, have converted the old farmhands’ quarters and stables to offer a variety of accommodation to suit different budgets and needs, in a peaceful setting but within 5 minutes of the race track at Croix-en-Ternois.
