Lens France and Louvre-Lens are near. Very nice B&B called Les Trois Maillets. He gardens; she cooks. They both renovate. In the back yard, she has a chicken house with 7 chickens, guinea hens and 2 rabbits. On the side yard, they have apples, flowers, rhubarb and more. Tourism has meant a lot to this former coal mining area as was intended by the Louvre-Lens creation.
