Le Belvédère : Le Touquet
Seven million visitors a year to this delightful resort cant all be wrong! In just over 3 hours from London, you can be enjoying a gourmet mini-break, a round of golf or indulging in some bargain-hunting in the local antique or designer shops. Or for a longer stay, just relax and live life at your own pace, perhaps enjoying the 7 miles of wide sandy beach, dunes and pine forest.
Le Touquet offers visitors mouth-watering regional dining and fish or shellfish lovers will come into their own with a selection from the catch of the day. Chocaholics, too, will not be able to resist the award-winning handmade confiseries on offer in the famous shopping street la Rue St Jean.
Recreational facilities are unparalleled in the region. Keen golfers will love playing some of Frances finest courses: Le Touquets own two 18-hole courses, La Mer (links) and la Foret or nearby Hardelots Les Pins and Les Dunes. Not forgetting the highly-praised Belle Dune course or Nampont St Martin, St Omer and Wimereux. Youre spoilt for choice!
If that isnt enough theres always the Aqualud water park, the 40 indoor and outdoor tennis courts and a major horse-riding centre. And thats before youve tried bike-riding, flying, sand yachting, shooting, archery or fishing! The list goes on.
For the more nocturnal, you may fancy a flutter at the casino (Roulette, Black Jack) or maybe a well-earned drink in any one of the numerous bars and clubs. There are places to suit all tastes and budgets.
