I'm also known as "Olek" and I live next door to the bed and breakfast and am fluent in English and French. I can assist you with local tourist information and I can also act as a chauffeur to and from Beauvais or Charles de Gaulle airports or as a guide to the local WW2 crash sites.
I can also offer you table d'hote - a home cooked meal served to you in your studio room if you do not fancy visiting one of the 5 restaurants we have in our village.
