Boulogne

Famous as being France’s biggest fishing port, Boulognes history dates back to Roman times. The old town grew up within the old Roman city walls and has a fantastic atmosphere. Boulogne is about 30 minutes up the A16 from any of our properties in Le Touquet.  A visit to the cathedral is a must.
