Alan Rogers Review
This delightful site, close to the Channel ports and the A26 and A16 autoroutes, is on the outskirts of Licques (1 km to the village) in the beautiful Boulonnais countryside. Of the 61 level, grassy pitches, 20 are for touring. All have 16A electricity, water tap and drain, some have rubberised hardstanding. Motorcaravans are especially welcome. The pretty brasserie caters for dining and takeaway in pleasant surroundings near the brand new, heated pool. There is a small, fenced play area for children. A longer stay enables visits to the beaches of the Opal Coast, and many sites of both World Wars, including Dunkirk and Ypres for example.
This is a region steeped in Anglo-French history; Henry VIII met François I in the most resplendent setting – the Field of the Cloth of Gold – just to talk! The Flemish towns of Ardres and Guines are worth a visit. Nearby Saint Omer, founded by the Benedictine monks, has beautiful museums and was the birthplace of both the Army Catering Corps and the RAF. Close by is a huge preserved German bunker and La Coupole. The site is located in the Parc Naturel Régional des Caps et Marais d’Opale; Cap Blanc Nez and Cap Gris Nez are famous landmarks for Channel swimmers and visitors to France and between them is the Côte d’Opale with numerous little sandy beaches and attractive villages – the beach at Wimereux is recommended by the site. Lovers of porcelain will enjoy a visit to nearby Desvres, famous for its faïence.
