The Resort:  known as Le Touquet – Paris Plage (or Paris by the sea) with good reason. Le Touquet is THE major resort along the Opale Coast and has been since the 1930’s when it was the seasonal haunt of both the English and the French upper classes (Edward & Mrs Simpson were often discrete houseguests).

Its shops and restaurants reflect its heyday and still continue to cater to the tastes of the majority of today’s holidaymakers and second homeowners – the Parisians.

In Le Touquet you will find the latest in fashion, eateries, and all manner of sporting facilities & events, concerts and exhibitions throughout the year. Unlike other beach resorts Le Touquet is
open throughout the year.


From its pristine villas discretely hidden behind pine trees and manicured lawns to the ½ timbered Edwardian villas that line the back roads close to the centre,  Le Touquet has a well worn charm of its own. After dark the centre is alive with outdoor dining, cafes, music bars, nightclubs, casinos and concerts – even Aqualud has an evening session staying open to midnight .


Le Touquet beach is unsurpassed in the region.  Mile upon mile of white sand backed at either end by undulating sand dunes.  If like the French your taste is for crowds, lots of beachside activities, snack bars, restaurants and of course, the omnipotent Aqualud, then you need go no farther than the centre of the beach to find it all – in spades!.


If on the other hand you hanker after an unspoilt natural coastline away from the crowds with lots of secluded corners amongst the dunes just take yourself to the North Beach for one of Le Touquet’s best surprises. Here where the estuary meets the sea you will share a wild and wonderful, almost New England-like, landscape with windsurfers and sailing dinghies venturing out from the bay’s yachting club.   Just take a look at the photos here and ask yourself how far you would have to go to find a more naturally perfect spot to fly your kite.


And then, there are the golf courses – 2 of them.  Often the venue of international competitions, the green fees still manage to be lower than their counterparts in England . The list of sporting and cultural activities on offer is long. In Le Touquet you can’t help but find something to everyone’s taste and budget.  Ask a Frenchman anywhere about Le Touquet and he will not only know of it but give you an appreciative sigh.  It is only in more recent years that holidaying English families are coming to discover what the French have always known and valued.


Accommodation:  The terraced villa is on 3 levels with an elevated entrance over the cave (basement) that houses the washing machine and dryer.  You enter by an enclosed glass porch where you can sit or keep your beach gear.  The sitting room reflects the Edwardian character of the villa with its carefully preserved wall cupboards and fireplace.  The whitewashed seaside theme here has been carried through to the rest of the villa.  The roomy eat-in kitchen is fitted and equipped with all mod cons and leads to a small, graveled courtyard below where you can BBQ.


On the first floor are 2 double bedrooms.  The master bedroom still contains many period features and has a fair size balcony which is actually the roof of the porch below.  From here you get a view of the sea at the end of the road.   On the 3rd floor, at the top of the original wooden  staircase, is another double bedroom overlooking the park at the rear of the villa and a single bedroom furnished in a whimsical, nautical style that is sure to delight your child.

The villa is only available for weekly lets during July and August ONLY.
