Between the forest and the sea
, Najeti Hotel Château Clery
is the perfect place to discover the countryside and beaches of the Opale Coast, like Caps Gris-Nez and Blanc-Nez, or the Faïence of Desvres. In natural surroundings
, the hotel is 10 minutes from Boulogne Sur Mer, 30 minutes from Calais and Le Touquet and 2.5 hours from Paris and Bruxelles.
Visit the Belfry of the City Hall in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer
, a place where you will find the largest fishing port in France
and so the emphasis, as you would expect, is very much on seafood and all things connected with the sea. Apart from the stalls along the edge of the port, there is also Capécure
, the commercial port where the fish is auctioned, frozen, salted, smoked and generally processed. The Chamber of Commerce organises guided tours for groups and it is fascinating to visit – and you can also buy fish to take home.
At the top of the town, lies the ‘old town’
, the administrative and religious centre of the town, dominated by the belfry and dome of the cathedral. The Rue de Lille
leads up from the square where the Town Hall stands and is lined with a variety of shops and plentiful restaurants where you can revive yourself before visiting the historic sites.
