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.
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
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
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
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
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.
