For buying and selling property in Nord-Pas-de-Calais

A slight Flemish feel

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais is one of the smallest regions and is located in the far north of France. It shares a border with Belgium, which explains the Flemish influence. Being home to the Opal Coast, the area is famous for its immaculate and clean beaches, the most fashionable being Le Touquet. Along the coastline, you can expect to find tourist resorts in abundance.

Don't go there just for the weather!

The region tends to attract people with its countryside, quaint villages, festivities and joie de vivre! Indeed it may be one of the jolliest regions in France, with parades, carnivals and fairs being held regularly. And being so close to the UK, you can expect the climate to be not too dissimilar to that enjoyed in Southern England.

An industrial heartland

Nord-Pas-de-Calais can take credit for the explosion in 19th century French manufacturing and still retains a significant industrial feel, today. It is the only major conurbation outside Paris.

Property and transport in the gateway to France

Property is not too expensive but since the opening of the Channel Tunnel the region has seen a slight increase in prices. The presence of the Channel Tunnel has done a lot for the region's economy and provides an incredibly frequent, cheap and reliable service. Other communication links are good too. There are frequent ferries to and from the UK and the road network makes driving to Paris and other areas extremely easy. If you'd rather leave your car at home then don't forget the fast and efficient TGV trains. There are no airports within the region which offer direct flights to/from the UK, except for Le Touquet.

BÉTHUNE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The town of Béthune is found in the Pas-de-Calais department in France's northernmost tip, not far from the ferry ports of Calais and Dunkerque, and not far from Lille and the Belgian border. It is lively and appealing, with plenty to offer its visitors and residents. Like so many northern French towns, Béthune suffered badly from the ravages of war, but has been regenerated into a thriving, clean and elegant town with a reputation for luxury shopping!

BOULOGNE-SUR-MER PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The town of Boulogne-sur-Mer lies, as its name implies, on the sea. The sea in question is the English Channel, and this geographical fact has influenced the town's fortunes since Roman times, when it was considered an important point for movement of troops and for trading with Britain.

CALAIS PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The town of Calais, best known for being the home of France's busiest ferry port, lies in the northernmost tip of France, at the closest point to Britain. Many British visitors are day trippers there for the excellent shopping, but if you can find more time to invest in looking around Calais, you will find a place with much more to offer than cheap booze and chocolate!

DUNKERQUE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Dunkerque is a name that will always conjure up memories of extreme courage, and of the terrible tragedy of war. The town today, however, whilst never wanting to forget the events of 1940, is a forward thinking place of industry and commerce, of shopping sprees and holidays by the sea. Lying on the lovely Opal Coast in the north of France, it is a town well worth a little... or a lot... of your time.

FRÉVENT PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Frévent is an attractive and interesting small town which lies in the beautiful countryside of the Canche River Valley in the Pas de Calais department of northern France. Having an important war cemetery and several other sights, Frévent is well worth adding to the list of places to consider if you are seeking property or a holiday destination in the north of France.

FRUGES PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Fruges is a substantial market town that lies in the northern tip of France, in the Pas de Calais department. The town is well equipped with shops and services and within easy reach of attractions like the beaches and entertainment of Le Touquet.

HESDIN PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The pretty market town of Hesdin lies at the northernmost tip of France, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais. Hesdin, with its bridges and its quaint streets is just over an hour's travel away from the port of Calais, and thus represents a very interesting proposition for second home seekers.

LE TOUQUET PARIS PLAGE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Le Touquet Paris Plage is otherwise known as Paris by the Sea. This distinctly upmarket resort isn't actually in Paris at all, lying, in fact, on the coast of the Pas de Calais department of the Nord Pas de Calais region in northern France. Le Touquet Paris Plage gained its name due to its elegance and popularity with the rich Parisians who flocked to enjoy its charms after it was created in the late 19th century.

LILLE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Lille, the great city of the north and historic capital of Flanders, is now the capital city of the Nord department of northern France. Once a centre of the textile industry, the city has undergone massive rejuvenation in recent times, and today bears no comparison to the dark industrial place it was in times gone by. Thanks to local government funded programmes, it is a place of light and colour, of beauty, history and art.

MONTREUIL-SUR-MER PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Montreuil-sur-Mer, famous as the setting for much of Victor Hugo's acclaimed novel "Les Misérables", is an attractive hilltop town in northern France. The town's mediaeval origins are very much still in evidence, and Montreuil-sur-Mer is a joy to discover, with its narrow cobbled streets and half-timbered houses reminding you of days long gone.

SAINT OMER PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Saint Omer, a northern French town in the Pas de Calais, is notable for its history as a Jesuit training centre where it is alleged that the Gunpowder Plot was hatched in 1605. It's also known for the Audomarois marshes whose fertile peat bogs earn a living for some 70 farmers, and these in turn supply the town's market with local produce every Saturday.

SAINT POL SUR TERNOISE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Saint Pol sur Ternoise is a pleasant and historic market town which lies on the River Ternoise in the Pas de Calais department in northern France. Blending historical interest with a thriving modern lifestyle, Saint Pol sur Ternoise is a good base from which to explore and enjoy the whole of the Nord Pas de Calais and Picardy regions.
