Pas de Calais villas are ideal for a seaside holiday in northern France. Long sandy beaches at resorts like Le Touquet and Boulogne-sur-Mer have waterparks, beach front cafes, restaurants and watersports activities to enjoy. Children will love a trip to Nausicaa, a museum of the sea where you can see aquariums of fish and other sea creatures including sea-lions. There is also an exciting interactive display that allows you to feel what it's like to be on a ships bridge in a fierce storm. Visit open air markets to stock up on food that's influenced by nearby Belgium – chocolate and beer. What could be better? Take some time to explore the military history in the region and pay your respects at Etaples cemetery. This area had an important role in WW1 and many soldiers lost their lives in the bloody battles.
