What to do, what to see in the area,...
There are a lot of walks and gentle strolls around the village or in the area.
For example, you can follow the trail of "Bras de Brosne", which is the name given to river flowing along our house.
If hustle and bustle of a more sophisticated nature is required then we are close to Montreuil sur Mer. It is famous for its majestic medieval ramparts, the Wine Society and the wide selection of restaurants. Montreuil sur Mer is well known for it's ancient battlements and its key role in WW1 and WW2. It is one of the prettiest largely preserved walled medieval towns in northern France. Every year since 1998 they have received a 4 star national award for their beautiful flower displays.
Today Montreuil is known more for it's gastronomy and as the head quaters of The Wine Society.With two top restaurants both with Michelin Stars and enough bars to cater for most purses and palates there is lots to tempt and perhaps an evening stroll along the ramparts just before dinner can be an evocative and romantic memory.
You can also spend a day in Le Touquet with its active beach, elegant shops and casino, busy night life and twice weekly market.
One of the oldest amusement parks in France can be found at Bagatelle which is about 50 minutes from us on the coast a little further south from Le Touquet.
Further along the coast with its vast stretch of beautiful clean sand Le Crotoy offers pleasures of a more sporty nature; wind surfing, sand yachting, and sailing to be some. Or hide behind your mussels and cider at one of the beach side restaurants as we usually do!
For garden lovers, there are many beautiful gardens to be found here, the Abbey de Valloires originating from the Cistercian in the 12th Century has one of the best including its garden of the five senses.
Nearby is also Azincourt where there is a fabulous new interactive museum for everything to do with battles and medieval armour!
There are activities all year round, from Kite festivals in nearby Berck, to tennis tournaments at Le Touquet. There is motorbike racing on the beach, excellent rounds of golf at one of the many elegant courses, wine festivals, Michelin starred restaurants, flower festivals, fishing, kayaking and horse riding....plenty to keep all of the family busy. Of course there are always plenty of places to just sit and watch Tout le Monde continue on its way...
