Northern France region
The sea is omnipresent in this beautiful often overlooked region of France called the Cote d'Opale or Opal Coast. Impressive cliffs, mile upon mile of clean sandy beaches, ancient fishing villages and dunes, hills and forests abound in the local area. The fortress city of Boulogne is just 10 minutes drive away with its ancient walls, fishing port, acquarium and lively shops and markets.
A bit further way lie the seaside resorts of Hardelot, Le Touquet and Wissant. Whether it is enamel pottery at Desvres or glass crystal from Arques, lace from Calais or locally brewed beer from Tardinghem, the area is rich with local wares and produce not least fresh fish and mussels. The area abounds with excellent fish and seafood restaurants at a fraction of the price one would pay in the UK.! World War 2 museums and sites are also very prevalent including the sites where the V2 and V3 rockets were built and stored, impressive WW2 cemeteries and museums. Calais is half an hour's drive away and Bruges at one hour and a half is an easy day trip.
St Etienne au Mont
Walking, cycling and swimming can be combined with visits to historic towns and WW2 sites. The reserve of Cap Blanc Nez and Cap Griz Nez is 20 minutes drive away. Further south there is a famous bird sanctuary near the Bay of the Somme called La Marquentenaire. The house is 2 minutes drive from the dunes and forest of Ecault next to another forest near to Hardelot.
