The coastal resorts of Le Tourquet, Boulogne are within 30 minutes' drive.The area outside St. Omer also offer fishing and walking in a very pleasant countryside. Near Lumbres is an excellent golf course and club about 10 km away. Further afield a tour of the battlefields of WW1 is a must.
The climate is similar to southern England. In fact one advantage is the short distance from England for a taste of the French way of life without being too foreign. The choice of hypermarkets on the outskirts of town and having plenty of small specialised shops in town centre is a perfect balance.
Saint Omer is a charming unspoilt historical town with places to visit and explore all within easy walking distance.
Although Saint Omer escaped damage in the two world wars it played a role by being the main base in WW1 for the British Flying Corps at Longuenesse airport. During WW2 the Germans built two rocket bases to target Britain.
La Coupole at Wizernes is a very good museum dedicated to rocket science at one of these bases.There are also many other museums in town worth visiting.
Every Saturday is market day in the main square close to the property. There are always various festivities happening throughout the year and up-to-date information can be obtained from the English-speaking staff at the tourist board in the next street.
