The Northern France / Nord-Pas-de-Calais region
The advantage of this area is the short drive time from Calais, Tunnel , Boulogne, and the varied facilities and places to visit. Approx 30 minutes to the sandy beaches, under an hour to the Somme estuary.
The Fauquembergues / Thiembronne area
The Fauquembergues / Aa valley area is relatively unaffected by tourism and this is relected in the prices charged by the restaurants and visitor attractions. For children, Dennlys Park amusement park, Nausicaa marine park, boatrides on the St Omer canal or in the Marais , the Picasso train or the unusual Rando-Rail from Lumbres. Fauquembergues , a 6 minute drive, has supermarkets and other shops, open market, restaurants and bars, a 13th century church. La Coupole and Eperlecques, the 2 major WW2 rocket launch sites.
