I Found The Best Bakery in Le Touquet

French Bread Le Touquet
If you are staying at one of our holiday rentals then you will inevitably want to buy some  bread. On a sunny morning walk nothing  beats the smell of fresh bread wafting in the air. This is one of the delights of breakfast in France.
The French seem to have some magical recipe for making baguettes that is never accomplished in other countries.
The Bakery Fred is my favourite patisserie in the town.  You will remember the baguettes or wands as one of the best you have ever eaten.
The crumbs are airy, the crust crunchy without being too hard, no need to break your teeth on any chewy hard bits.
Sunday morning’s queue of anxious customers speaks volumes for this bakeries popularity.
From the street, you can see the master baker at work and the batches follow to please the long line of regulars and tourists.

The Viennese Pastries are amazing!

Viennese pastries Le Touquet
If you thought there was only one type of baguette think again.  There is a choice of 5 at Fred’s. If you find the Retro wand too small or are feeling hungry then opt for the “go large” Chef’s Baguette which is twice as big as the Retro Baguette.
Types of Baguette
Baguette Rétrodor
Baguette Rétro au sésame
Baguette aux lardons
Baguette viennoise
Baguette du chef – Twice as much fun as the Retro Baguette
A great place for fantastic bread – They even have a loyalty card.

Guyomard Retro and Rock Art Exhibition – Le Touquet

Gérard Guyomard Le Touquet

5th March - 20th May

The art exhibition covers the entire floor of the museum and is a marvellous display of Gérard Guyomard’s free spirit and joyous rebellion.

Thirty paintings from the 1960s are on show. They take you back to the vibrant sounding 60’s when Jimmy Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and the Beatles topped the charts. The scenes depicted of popular life are close to “Departure on vacation” (1968) and “Halles Rock” (1987).
Gérard Guyomard began painting in 1964 and became inspired by images of everyday life and erotic fantasies. His monumental works include 1985 – Mural in Vittuone, Italy and 1986 – Hospital Lariboisière
His vision is that of his personal world projected on a board.

The French word for Pharmacy is Pharmacie and is pronounced in the same way. Shops are visible due to the traditional Green Cross displayed outside.

Generally drugs that are freely available across the counter are the same as can be purchased at a UK Chemist shop.

Le European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles you to receive treatment with the same rights as a French residence. If you have a prescription from the UK or issued in France you should present it together with the EHIC when you go to the pharmacy.

You should pay the same rate at the pharmacy as someone who was insured and living in that country. In France, for residents the Carte Vitale is the health insurance card of the national health care system in France.
