Is this sentence correct??

Is this sentence correct??
 
Like all other days, it was very quiet in Lembort, the remote and the forgotten village. What īs wrong with this sentence?? One of my students wrote this sentence and I think it īs not correct? Am I right???

I would leave out the second "the".
 
Like all other days, it was very quiet in Lembort, the remote and forgotten village.

Marion īs suggestion is grammatically correct, but I think it would sound more natural to say:
Like all other days, it was very quiet in the remote and forgotten village of Lembort.

I have a creepy feeling that a native speaker would say
 
"Like any other day(s)"
 
instead of
 

"Like all other days "

I agree with all the other posts. So it depends how much you want to correct the student.

Hi Donia
 
I started to respond yesterday and got side-tracked. But my response was the same as MarionG - it sounds better without the second article.
 
Cheers
